Epiphone Masterbilt Century Collection De Luxe (Round Hole) Vintage Natural NH

The Masterbilt Century Collection’s De Luxe and De Luxe Classic recreate the iconic Epiphone full-body archtop tone that made the House of Stathopoulo world renowned. Epiphone’s original archtops were designed to be heard over a big band and the new Masterbilt Century De Luxe (round hole) and De Luxe Classic (f-hole) carry on that tradition with a big natural sound and elegant style.

The Solid Spruce top has classic longitudinal bracing and the deep tone of the De Luxe and De Luxe Classic can be heard through a mic or amplified with a specially designed eSonic™ HD preamp and Shadow NanoFlex™ HD Under-saddle pickup electronics with mounted controls for Volume and Master Tone. Both the De Luxe and De Luxe Classic feature an Ebony fingerboard with large “notched diamond” inlays, beautiful 3-ply Ivory/Black binding, a recreation of the vintage Epiphone headstock with “mother of pearl” banner inlays, bone nut, and historic aged nickel Epiphone 18:1 tuners. The Masterbilt Century Deluxe archtops are available in both a Vintage Natural and Vintage Sunburst aged gloss finish. The optional De Luxe Masterbilt Century Hard Case comes in a beautiful Russet Brown modeled to look like the original leather-covered Masterbilt cases from the 1930s.
