Epiphone Acoustic Guitar: Masterbilt AJ-500M Advanced Jumbo

by Guitar Guru

”Guitar with Vibrancy and Value”

The Epiphone Masterbuilt AJ-500 Advanced Jumbo is so well made that you would swear that it costs far more than ~$499. Furthermore, its sharp flavor enhances the natural woodiness of its tone to produce an intriguingly vibrant musical combination.

With a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, the Masterbilt AJ-500M is surprisingly lightweight for its size. Plus its slim neck makes it very easy to play even if its body size can be a bit daunting to beginning acoustic guitar players or those musicians who are more slightly built.

The volume of this beauty is incredibly loud and can cut through even the most cluttered of performance issues – including rooms full of chattering people and competing instruments. While fingerstyle playing tends to make this guitar sound a bit mushy unless you choose lighter weight strings, it will hold up to strenuous strumming and picking with absolutely no problem.

In short, if you are looking for the quality, volume and tone of a much more expensive guitar but cannot fit it into your budget, the Epiphone Masterbuilt AJ-500M is a great acoustic guitar that will not disappoint.
