Masterbilt EF-500RCCE
The Masterbilt EF-500RCCE might be one of the most unique and beautiful guitars in our Masterbilt Collection. The Masterbilt Collection was first issued in the early 1930s and were the pride of our founder Epi Stathopoulo. The Masterbilt line of guitars marked Epiphone’s arrival as one of the great acoustic designers and builders of the era. That same spirit for innovation and making timeless designs is still our mission and you'll know it after you've played an Epiphone EF-500RCE which features the classic "orchestra" body shape with a generous cutaway, a Solid Cedar top, and a mahogany "V" style neck perfect for fingerpicking, and the eSonic2 pickup system.

As with all Epiphone guitars, the EF-500RCCE features Epiphone's Limited Lifetime warranty and is backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service. You deserve the best. Make the best music of your life with a Masterbilt EF-500RCE today at your Authorized Epiphone Dealer.

The Masterbilt Story
First released in June 1931, the original Epiphone Masterbilts made a big impression on musicians from all styles of music and the new Masterbilts have done the same. 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 that's still true today!

Though modern building techniques may have improved the longevity of our Epiphone Masterbilt guitars, the fundamental design, materials, and workmanship that made Masterbilts superb instruments are still here and can be heard in the Masterbilt EF-500RCCE, a 'singer's guitar' with a clear and balanced tone, great projection, and natural warmth that is perfect for fingerpicking. When it comes to acoustic guitar tone and quality, nothing performs better than an all-solid wood instrument. The Epiphone Masterbilt line celebrates the best of Epiphone's heritage by combining traditional construction methods and features with premium all solid tone woods to bring you a "vintage" instrument that is affordable but durable enough to last a lifetime.

Epiphone luthiers of the 1930s would recognize the unique sound and feel of their original instruments brought back to life in our Masterbilt Acoustic Collection. New Epiphone Masterbilts also benefit from the consistency that climate-controlled factories provide as well as the knowledge we now have about what made those classic instruments sound so good. We put that knowledge into the entire Masterbilt line. While many other guitars in this price range use pressed backs, spliced neck joints and even artificial wood backs and sides, you can be assured that every Masterbilt holds true to our all solid wood promise. We know Epi would be proud to have his name on such a 1st class instrument.
