Epiphone Acoustic Guitar: Masterbilt AJ-500R Advanced Jumbo

by Guitar Guru

”Solid Choice for Chocolate Lovers”

The Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-500R Advanced Jumbo is a whole lot of guitar at just a fraction of the price of other all-wood guitars on its level of quality.

This solid rosewood guitar sports a solid Sitka spruce top; a combination that produces a warm, woody tone that simultaneously has a crispness and vibrancy. The only way to accurately describe it is by comparing it to eating a warm chocolate cake covered in fresh raspberries; two awesome flavors in one bite.

Styled to pay tribute to Epiphone’s 1930’s line of classic guitars, the AJ-500R shows Epiphone’s commitment to producing great acoustic guitars in every detail. And its price tag may have you blinking at just how little they charge for such a great quality instrument.

At only ~$599, the AJ-500R can compared to guitars in much higher price ranges (such as Martins or Taylors). And while they may not have the projection of, say, a Martin or the flawless body work of a Taylor, for the price they ask, the tone and quality of the instrument is excellent.

And speaking of body work, you may need to change the string weights or play around with different bridge pins until you find the right combination for your playing style. But once you find the right combination, you won’t regret your purchase and will find yourself growing more attached to your Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-500R by the day.
