All solid wood, for great tone and resonance

In the Epiphone DR-500MCE, solid wood is used throughout the instrument, giving you big, balanced sound and unmatched resonance. In this price range, it’s somewhat unusual to find acoustic guitars with solid wood backs and sides. However, Epiphone has a different approach. They built the DR-500MCE with a solid mahogany body, a solid Sitka spruce top, and a glued-in, dove-tailed neck joint. The result? A high-value instrument with robust lows, lucid mids, and bell-like, shimmering highs. We’ve all heard the expression, “they don’t build ’em like they used to.” Well, Epiphone does!

Masterbilt Epiphones: a grand lineage

The Epiphone Masterbilt DR-500MCE stems from a renowned lineage. Since their first release in June of 1931, Masterbilt Epiphone acoustics have been coveted by guitarists of all genres for their easy playability and exceptional tone. The company stated in the original Epiphone Masterbilt catalog: “The possessor of an Epiphone instrument has the assurance that every possible precaution has been taken to build instruments for lifetime performance and pleasure.” This promise is restated today on the Epiphone website, and is backed up by their Limited Lifetime Warranty.
