About the Epiphone Masterbilt

Epiphone Masterbilt brings together traditional designs with modern playability. They are based on popular models from previous decades and create an authentic retro vibe at an affordable price in line with the needs of a contemporary guitarist. One of these models is the Texan which is based on the 60s guitar that was famously played by Sir Paul McCartney and Peter Frampton.

Epiphone Masterbilt guitars combine retro acoustic guitar designs and aesthetics with Epiphone's top drawer modern manufacturing methods and premium materials to give you old school cool you can rely on.

Les Paul said "Epiphone always made a good guitar," and in the 1920s and 30s, this included their handsome range of acoustics. This is the era the Masterbilt's are inspired by, but updated with great features like modern tuners, more sustainable wood choices and fantastic modern electronics to translate your sound to the stage or studio.

All solid tonewoods are used for the top, back and sides on Epiphone Masterbilt guitars. These include wood choices such as solid mahogany and solid sitka spruce. Hand-scalloped bracing and a hand shaped mahogany neck along with medium jumbo frets make these acoustic guitars extremely enjoyable to play. They also benefit from Fishman Sonitone electronics, making Epiphone Masterbilt a great choice for live performance and easy recording thanks to the convenient output jack.
