I just bought this guitar from guitar center today. It sounds better than ALL of the martins costing around a thousand dollars. The action is also equal to that of a guitar that you might pay two grand for. This guitar is well worth the money. Go play one for yourself and I think you,ll agree.
I had my epi for two months now and I bought it from a guitar center. I've been looking for a while for a great guitar and it took 3 visit to play every single guitar in the store. Well after playing this guitar I couldn't put it down because the action is great and the sound is deep. If you are looking at this guitar online, take my word for it, it's great buy.
Nice features, built in an Epiphone factory under Gibson specs. I play country or acoustic rock. Finger picking or strumming. It suits me well. This guitar is very playable and projects ample volume even when finger picking or finger strumming. The mahogany gives it a nice deep tone, which I love. It responds to how loud I want to play. For the money, I couldn?t get a better tone, but it doesn?t compare to a Martin or a Gibson with the same features.The factory settings are fine. Don't think I need a setup, but I may change my mind. I switched the strings first thing when I got home. Switched to Martin Phosphor Bronze Light Strings. Strings that came with it were dull. Otherwise, I was very happy with the condition it came in.You can?t get a better guitar in this price range as far I?m concerned. I?ve been searching for over a year.
When searching for a new guitar, I played much higher dollar guitars that were not half the quailty of this guitar. If you are looking for a guitar in this price ranger or higher, you owe it to yourself to give any of the Masterbilt line a try. As compared to other brands, this guitar should sell for much more money.
Just picked this guitar up yesterday. I can't put it down. I'm getting my first lesson in a few days, so my fingertips hurt pretty bad. What a great sound. I have big fingers and this is so easy to play. I'm looking forward to years of playing. The case is just fantastic too =)
If you want the same sound & quality for under $1500...you won't find it anywhere else. The DR-500M comes with 'old style' Grover tuners, solid wood throughout and a satin finish. There is a reason for the 'satin finish' vs. a glossy finish. This lets the sound 'resonate' better thus producing full, rich lows & bright, crisp, clean highs. Final note: I am NOT a kid...I've been around the block. This will be the last acoustic guitar I will ever need or want.
This thing sounds great, nice tone and great look. If your in this price range for an acoustic I would make it one of your top choices.
I was searching for a quality solid wood acoustic at a resaonable price. I compared this to some Alvarez and Martins but found that this one had a sound much like the Gibson counterparts. I couldn't believe how well rounded this guitar is. Just a good guitars for twice the price
I finally pulled the trigger and bought the DR-500M. It is fantastic. The mahogany back and sides give a wonderful deep tone. It has fast action. I played several other, more expensive, solid-wood dreadnought and I liked this Masterbilt the best. When you factor in the excellent pricing, anyone looking to buy a nice acoustic should play this guitar and consider buying it.
I recieved this guitar as a gift for christmas and this baby whails. Amazing tone, tone thats hard to find in some upper priced guit fiddles. Just a quality piece of work. Im probably going to order a new one since I smashed mine up pretty good by running it over with my car. Messed up story, but in the end its still an amazing deal. If your looking for a fine guitar thats not hard on your wallet, end the search here.
