All-solid wood for higher-end acoustic guitar tone and performance.
The DR-500MCE features a solid Sitka spruce top, hand-scalloped Sitka spruce braces, mahogany kerfing, a 25-1/2"-scale rosewood fingerboard, and a rosewood bridge. Players looking for vintage tone and vibe will appreciate the handcrafted dovetail neck joint and hide-glue construction. The Epiphone DR-500MCE guitar has solid mahogany back and sides, as well as a 20-fret, hand-shaped mahogany neck that joins the body at the 14th fret, which is adorned with carefully cut, split-diamond pearl fretboard inlays. As with all Masterbilts, the Epiphone electric guitar features a vintage-style offset headstock with a stickpin inlay.
While the Epiphone DR-500MCE sounds great unplugged, it really comes alive when plugged in thanks to the Fishman Presys preamp and Sonicore pickup system. The onboard Presys electronics provide premium amplification and are also easy to use. Get full control of your sound with master volume, 3-band EQ controls, a tuner switch with output mute, and a phase switch.
When engaged, the Epiphone guitar's output is automatically muted-with no popping noise-making it a perfect choice for stage use.
Other features on the Epiphone Masterbilt acoustic-electric guitar include quality vintage-style machine heads; bone nut and saddle; imitation tortoise pickguard; nickel hardware; and a bound body, neck, and headstock.
