Epiphone’s Masterbilt AJ-500RCE acoustic electric guitar introduces one the most legendary acoustic guitars in music history, the mighty powerful dreadnaught, to the critically acclaimed Masterbilt series with a beautiful cutaway and a stylish Vintage Sunburst Satin finish.
As with all Masterbilts, the AJ-500RCE features a Solid Sitka Spruce top. The AJ-500RCE has a modern stylish cutaway, hand-scalloped Sitka Spruce braces, and Mahogany kerfing along with a Rosewood bridge and bone saddle. One of the great attributes of a Sitka Spruce top is that it gets better with age--and playing time! The AJ-500RCE’s historic dreadnaught shape contributes its powerful tone mid-range projection. The Rosewood Bridge features a vintage classic 1.69” bone nut. The dreadnaught’s classic profile top has 5-ply binding, 3-ply binding on the headstock, and single ply binding on the neck along with a tortoise style pickguard.
The AJ-500RCE has solid rosewood back and sides, just like vintage models. The hand-shaped neck is also made from solid mahogany with a 1-piece heel, and is attached to the body with a dovetail joint and hide glue. The neck has a standard 25.5” scale and the Masterbilt’s classic SlimTaper D Profile. The Rosewood fretboard has pearloid dot inlays, a 14” radius, and 20 medium frets.
New Epiphone Masterbilt Series guitars are just as treasured as vintage models. But they’re a lot more affordable and available! First released in June 1931, the original Epiphone Masterbilts made a big impression on musicians from all styles of music and new Masterbilts continue to further that reputation around the world. The original Epiphone Masterbilt catalog made the promise: "The possessor of an EPIPHONE instrument has the assurance that every possible precaution has been taken to build instruments for lifetime performance and pleasure." And Epiphone still makes that promise!
