The Masterbilt Epiphone DR-500MCE acoustic-electric guitar is a rarity: a new instrument with a distinctly vintage vibe, big, balanced tone, and buttery playability. But it gets even better: the DR-500MCE is all solid wood - and it's amazingly affordable! Oh, yes - one more thing - Epi's loaded this cutaway dreadnought with premium electronics - Shadow's NanoMag neck and NanoFlex bridge pickups, and an eSonic-2 stereo preamp with integrated tuner and feedback zapper switch.

In the Epiphone DR-500MCE, solid wood is used throughout the instrument, giving you big, balanced sound and unmatched resonance. In this price range, it's somewhat unusual to find acoustic guitars with solid wood backs and sides. Epiphone - happily - has a different approach: they built the DR-500MCE with a solid mahogany body, a Solid Sitka spruce top, and a glued-in, dove-tailed neck joint. The result? A high-value instrument with rich robust lows, balanced, lucid mids, and bell-like, shimmering highs. We've all heard the expression, "they don't build 'em like they used to." Well, Epiphone does!

Masterbilt Epiphones: a grand lineage

The company stated in the original Epiphone Masterbilt catalog: "The possessor of an Epiphone instrument has the assurance that every possible precaution has been taken to build instruments for lifetime performance and pleasure."
