    Comments about Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500RCCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The guitar came arrived in the mail, set up and ready to play. The construction is first rate. The action is very good right out of the box. This guitar has very warm tones, and the sound projects well unplugged. Plugged into a Fender Supersonic 22 amp on the clean channel, the pick-ups sound crisp and clean and would be excellent for playing live. It really is a lot of guitar for the money!

        Comments about Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500RCCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I find this guitar difficult to play because one has to push too hard on the string, vs. other brands such as Takamine or Taylor.
        It also "buzzes" on several strings past the 4th fret,
        Perhaps is it a good play for more experienced musicians than I am.

        Comments about Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500RCCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This beautiful acoustic electric compares favorably with acoustic electrics costing twice as much. ESonic2 system is by Shadow Electronics and provides a lot of flexibility. I was considering a Taylor 214CE which cost $200 more and is not all solid wood. My guitar advisor at Sam Ash's remarkable Huntington, LI store suggested that I audition this one, with its solid cedar top and solid rosewood back and sides. I did and it was no contest. Further this Shadow electronic system is definitely superior to Taylor's. The people at Sam Ash know their business and I would not go anywhere else for instruments and amps.
