Epiphone Masterbilt AJ500RCE
Factory Refurbished, but looks and plays as new!
Premium-grade, solid rosewood back and sides with generous cutaway and quality electronics.
As with all Masterbilts, the AJ-500RCE features a Solid Sitka spruce top. The AJ-500RCE has a modern stylish cutaway, hand-scalloped Sitka spruce braces, and mahogany kerfing along with a rosewood bridge and bone saddle. One of the great attributes of a Sitka spruce top is that it gets better with age – and playing time. The AJ-500RCE's historic dreadnaught shape contributes its powerful tone mid-range projection. The rosewood bridge features a vintage classic 1.69 bone nut. The dreadnaught's classic profile top has 5-ply binding, 3-ply binding on the headstock, and single-ply binding on the neck along with a tortoise-style pickguard.
The AJ-500RCE has solid mahogany back and sides, just like vintage models. The hand-shaped neck is also made from solid mahogany with a one-piece heel, and is attached to the body with a dovetail joint and hide glue. The neck has a standard 24.75 scale and the Masterbilt's classic SlimTaper D Profile. The rosewood fretboard has pearloid dot inlays, a 14 radius, and 20 medium jumbo frets.
