Epiphone Masterbilt Excellente Acoustic Electric in Antique Natural Aged Gloss
Masterbilt Version Of a Very Rare Epi
One of the rarest Epiphone models ever, just 141 Excellente acoustic guitars were produced between 1963 and 1970. Made famous by country music legend Loretta Lynn, the Excellente now joins the Epi’s Masterbilt Collection. Featuring a Solid Sitka Spruce top, an ebony fingerboard with historic pearloid Block Cloud inlays, a bone nut and saddle, and gold Kluson Waffleback tuners; the Epiphone Masterbilt Excellente is powered by onboard Fishman Sonitone electronics. Guitarists are knocked out by the Masterbilt Excellente’s exceptional tone, playability, looks — and value. We’re sure you will be, too.
Sitka spruce and ovangkol: tonewood alchemy
A quality acoustic guitar is all about the wood, and the Epiphone Masterbilt Excellente serves up a classic tonewood cocktail with no compromises. The top is solid Sitka spruce for robust projection and crystalline note clarity. Solid ovangkol, used for the back and sides of the Excellente, is tonally similar to rosewood, but with a slightly fuller midrange and a bright high-end reminiscent of koa. The tonewood characteristics of the Masterbilt Excellente — together with its large dreadnought body — give it the power and nuance to accommodate a wide range of playing styles.

The Epiphone Masterbilt Excellente comes equipped with Fishman Sonitone electronics that are ready for you to hit the stage or plug into your computer for easy recording. The pickup is mounted inside the soundhole, giving you easy access to volume and tone controls.
