Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500M
Epiphone Masterbilt series from home, so all solid wood with a beautiful wedding, but effective, solid mahogany for the back and sides, solid spruce top and to the table. Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone frets, pinbridge plastic (but it can be changed easily, if you want). Mechanical Gotoh vintage-style, highly efficient and reliable. Manufacturing in China, and revision settings it seems the U.S. with the luthiers at Gibson before sale. Finishing sober matt varnish rigor, that I tested shows a beautiful honey color on the table, the most beautiful effect and strengthens the vintage. Handle 14 boxes out of box, V-shaped, with a width of 44.5 mm at the nut. Martin 000 standard format. This is exactly the same configuration as my Masterbilt EF-500 R, but with mahogany instead of rosewood.


Channel pleasant, despite its size and profile. The handle V is amazing, because it facilitates the holding of certain agreements - including the left thumb over the handle - so you might think otherwise. Comfort is remarkable, especially as these guitars are made to be mounted with a rope pulling respectable. It is fitted with Martin 12-54, which seems to suit him well. The approval also comes from the fact that the spacing between the strings is a little larger than usual, which makes the game much easier finger picking with the right hand, and accurate to the left hand. The size of the guitar smaller than a dreadnought, contributes to the comfort of the game Access to acute is restricted from the 14th box, necessarily, but it is already a sacred playground mastered before going to extreme tease ... The sound is excellent.


Mahogany gives more accurate and lower neutral version with rosewood. Notes stand out well in the agreements, the highs are clear and singing, the upper midrange is present but controlled. In finger picking is the ideal guitar: ease of play induces easier control of the sustain of each note. Fingers guitar meets all the nuances of the game ideal for acoustic blues, where drought bass and treble marked singing are wonderful, it should also be of interest to all lovers of finger picking styles. The floor opens and re give an extra dimension in the bass and musicality at all is never at fault. The guitar also play some pick where a particular game is better than strumming comes in, but it also shows where beautiful reserve powers, if only one is a little control. Directories pop, blues, rock is his favorite playground, but it is a guitar that just do a lot of things, for sure ... This acoustic guitar is able to roar, if you tuck it in enough. She also just do a lot more feline, subtle and caressing.


This guitar is not to me but to my sidekick blues. For some years he has, and she did that to improve. The sound is open and stable, and the guitar does not move a bit. A real pleasure to play and hear, especially finger picking. The sound is very balanced, and the time it takes a real personality. I think it should age well, and within a few years it will take another dimension. A minor feature, but very pleasant to use, observed with the time spent on these guitars: the mechanical remarkably take note, there was little need to retune. In short, a guitar comfortable, classic look, wise and vintage sound of hell, a great playing comfort, guidance rather finger picking, but does not prevent the game to pick. A guitar that will make its owner happy, and this for very long, because the construction is flawless Masterbilt.
