A smaller-size acoustic-electric archtop with an Olympic-sized tone.
The compact tone of the Olympic sounds beautiful unamplified on a small stage or in the studio. But now the cutting-edge eSonic HD (High Definition) preamp system and Shadow NanoFlex HD Under-saddle pickup make it possible for archtop players to hear their instrument amplified exactly as they hear it unplugged. The Shadow NanoFlex HD Under-saddle pickup has easy-to-access controls for Master Volume and Master EQ mounted just inside the lower f-hole. Now you have complete control over how much of the acoustic guitar is amplified. The pre-amp system is powered by a standard 9-volt battery that is easy to access, located near the 1/4" output jack.
Historic Epiphone Hardware
The Olympic comes with Historic Epiphone Re-issue Tuners with marboloid "Crown" buttons with an upgraded 18:1 tuning ratio for fast and accurate tuning. The tuners are mounted on an Epiphone Dovewing headstock with pearloid "Banner" logos. Unlike many vintage archtops, the Olympic has a dual action truss rod for easy and perfect set-up. The Floating adjustable ebonoid bridge is made from a synthesized material that has the grain-like texture and look of ebony but is harder and more reliable for years of playing. The historic aged all-nickel trapeze tailpiece is also inspired from Epiphone’s vintage Masterbilt collection. Every new Masterbilt Century guitar is set up at the factory with Cleartone 12-53 gauge strings.
The Epiphone Masterbilt Olympic Acoustic-Electric Guitar comes with a limited lifetime guarantee and world-renown 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.
