Epiphone Masterbilt Excellente Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Antique Natural Aged Gloss

Sale price$499.99


Our Take:

Perhaps one of the rarest Epiphone models ever made, the Excellente acoustic guitar was produced between 1963-1970, and only 141 were ever made. But now Epiphone has brought back all the beauty and quality of this guitar for you to own. You’ll love the sound produced by the solid sitka top and ovangkol back & sides, which is captured wonderfully by the Fishman™ Sonitone™ system. The exceptional tone is matched by the detailed design all across this guitar. The headstock is adorned by gold vintage-style Waffleback tuners, the ebony fretboard is gracefully inlayed with pearl clouds, and the pickguard is a stunning piece of art. All this beauty and tone at an EXCELLENTE price! 

Epiphone's Take:

Perhaps the rarest Epiphone model ever made, only 139 Excellente acoustic guitars were produced between 1963-70. The beautifully ornate, top-of-the-line Excellente was made famous by country music legend Loretta Lynn, and now it returns as part of the new Masterbilt™ Collection. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top, solid ovangkol back and sides, an ebony fingerboard with historic pearl cloud inlays, bone nut and saddle, and gold vintage-style Waffleback tuners. Powered by the Fishman® Sonitone™ onboard preamp system, it's ready for the studio or stage. Featuring Gibson™ strings. Epiphone stands behind every guitar they make with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson Brands™ Customer Service.


Note: Because wood is an organic material, slight variations in the grain occur naturally and add to the uniqueness of each guitar. Because of these natural variations, the grain of the instrument you receive might not perfectly match the one pictured here.
