Epiphone Acoustic Electric: Masterbilt DR-500MCE
by Guitar Guru
“Beauty and Quality in One Affordable Package”
If you want the very best quality in an acoustic-electric guitar, then the Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE is definitely a guitar to take into consideration; the DR-500MCE has everything that you could possibly want from a high performance acoustic-electric guitar. It will provide you with years’ worth of playability and performance.
There really is nothing like the sound of a solid wood guitar
, and the DR-500MCE is made with a solid Sitka spruce top
and a solid mahogany body
with inlays that will give your instrument a sparkle and shine that will make you smile every time that you see it.
You’ll be smiling even wider when you play the DR-500MCE because the depth and quality of the tone is going to blow you away. What makes this guitar even more desirable is that it has a built-in eSonic2 preamp system (with a built-in tuner) as well as a NanoFlex Tone and NanoMag Tone. Plus it has an indicator for low battery and a phase switch to allow you to know when your battery is in need of replacement (a necessity if you are performing).
While some people may want to do some minor adjusting (such as replacing strings, bridge pins etc.) in order to bring the DR-500MCE up to their own personal standards, the instrument itself plays great right out of the box.
With a price tag of ~$599, the Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE Acoustic-Electric Guitar is not a cheap guitar. But it does have the advantage of having everything you will want or need in an acoustic-electric which means that it will be a very long time before you have to upgrade. However, chances are that you will become so attached to the DR-500MCE that you won’t want to trade at all, but will keep playing it for years yet to come.
You may want to purchase a
Gator Deluxe ABS Dreadnought Guitar Case
for an additional ~$949 to protect your Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE. Don’t look at it as an expense, but as money well spent to protect your investment.
