Product Description

The Epiphone DR-500ME is one of the new classics of our new Masterbilt Collection. The original Masterbilt Collection was first issued in the early 1930s and was the pride of our founder Epi Stathopoulo. The Masterbilt line of guitars marked Epiphone’s arrival as one of the great acoustic designers and builders of the era. We still have Epi’s drive to improve timeless designs and innovate which you'll hear when you play the Masterbilt DR-500ME which features the classic dreadnought style that we’ve refined and re-tooled for the 21st century with world-famous Epiphone Masterbilt quality and the fabulous eSonic2 pickup system.

Legendary Masterbilt Series

First released in June 1931, the original Epiphone Masterbilts made a big impression on musicians from all styles of music and the new Masterbilts have done the same. The original Epiphone Masterbilt catalog made the promise: “The possessor of an EPIPHONE instrument has the assurance that every possible precaution has been taken to build instruments for lifetime performance and pleasure.” And they still are!

Though modern building techniques may have improved the longevity of your new Epiphone Masterbilt guitar, the fundamental design, materials, and workmanship that made Masterbilts superb instruments are still here and can be heard in the Masterbilt DR-500ME, a classic dreadnought style acoustic guitar with the clear and balanced tone, projection, and natural warmth that comes with solid mahogany back and sides and a solid Sitka Spruce top. When it comes to acoustic guitar tone and quality, nothing performs better than an all-solid wood instrument. The Epiphone Masterbilt line celebrates the best of Epiphone’s heritage by combining traditional construction methods and features with premium all solid tone woods to bring you a "vintage" instrument that is affordable but durable enough to last a lifetime.

Epiphone luthiers of the 1930s would recognize the unique sound and feel of their original instruments brought to life again in our Masterbilt Acoustic Collection. New Epiphone Masterbilts also benefit from the consistency that climate-controlled factories provide as well as the knowledge we now have about what made those classic instruments sound so good. We put that knowledge into the entire Masterbilt line. While many other guitars in this price class use pressed backs, spliced neck joints and even artificial wood backs and sides, you can be assured that every Masterbilt holds true to our all solid wood promise. We know Epi would be proud to have his name on such a 1st class instrument.
