What Epiphone say when new.....
A History of Archtop Excellence Since 1931 Reinvented for the 21st Century
Epiphone’s first Masterbilt archtops quickly rose to popularity during the 1930s Big Band era and were renowned for their warm woody tone, wide tonal range and punchy volume. However, with the invention of the electric guitar pickup, archtop acoustic guitars quickly became equipped with magnetic amplification and were for the most part, forever transformed into electric guitars. Until now…

Epiphone, the leader in affordable professional archtop guitars, reinvents the archtop again by combining our original, time-tested designs with 21st century acoustic guitar electronics to bring you the new Masterbilt Century Collection. The first collection of archtop acoustic/electric guitars designed to be played and amplified as true acoustic instruments. Just play one and you will immediately feel and hear the difference between today’s common flat top acoustic guitar and the unique voice of a Masterbilt Century. Plug one in and prepare to be amazed! Really. You have to hear it to believe it.

Presenting the NEW Epiphone Masterbilt De Luxe Acoustic/Electric Guitar
The Masterbilt De Luxe Classic Acoustic/Electric Guitar is a large body guitar that produces a strong, full tone capable of cutting through any mix. It features an arched Solid Spruce top with traditional Longitudinal Bracing, replica tortoise style pickguard, and a round sound hole. Inside the sound hole is a 1930's era replica Epiphone label. The De Luxe is available in traditional Vintage Natural and Vintage Sunburst aged gloss finishes, each with unique color tones inspired by Epiphone’s priceless vintage collection in Nashville, Tennessee. Like Epi’s first generation of archtops, the new De Luxe has a unique body profile with a 17in lower bout, a 12.6” upper bout, a 10.25in waist, and a 21in body length. With its round sound hole, the De Luxe has a deeper bass and an overall fuller tone than most archtops but with more punch than a flat-top. Both the body and top feature 3-layer Ivory & Black color binding while the fingerboard has single layer Ivory color binding. The 5-piece Hard Maple and Mahogany neck has a full rounded C- profile that is glued to the body with a dovetail joint for a precise fit so the De Luxe will resonate as one piece of wood. The Ebony fretboard has 20 medium frets, a 25.5in scale length, and pearloid Notched Diamond inlays modeled after the original Masterbilts. The full tone of the De Luxe sounds beautiful unamplified on a small stage or in the studio.

Historic Epiphone Hardware
The De Luxe Classic comes with Historic Epiphone Re-issue Tuners with Marboloid Crown buttons with an upgraded 18:1 tuning ratio for fast and accurate tuning. The tuners are mounted on an Epiphone Dovewing headstock with Pearloid Banner logos. Unlike many vintage archtops, the De Luxe Classic has a dual action truss rod for easy and perfect set-up. The Floating Adjustable Ebonoid Bridge is made from a synthesized material that has the grain-like texture and look of Ebony but is harder and more reliable for years of playing. The historic aged all-nickel Trapeze Tailpiece is also inspired from Epiphone’s vintage Masterbilt collection. Every new Masterbilt Century guitar is set up at the factory with Cleartone® 12-53 gauge strings. An optional vintage-styled hard case is also available.
