Representing an unbelievable value, the Epiphone Masterbilt DR-400MCE features an all-solid wood construction plus high-quality onboard electronics at an affordable price! With all the quality you've come to expect from Epiphone's Masterbilt instruments, the Masterbilt DR-400MCE features a dreadnought body that's crafted using a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back & sides to produce a warm, balanced sound with plenty of sonic horsepower. It also sports a convenient cutaway design to allow for comfortable access to the higher frets on the fingerboard. The solid mahogany neck is shaped into a sleek, ergonomic 1960's SlimTaper profile, and boasts an asymmetrical "Masterbilt" headstock that showcases a pearloid script Epiphone logo and a Masterbilt "Stickpin" inlay. Equipped with an eSonic HD preamp system and NanoFlex-HD under-saddle pickup, the DR-400MCE will deliver natural-sounding amplified tone, which makes it the perfect workhorse for the stage and studio. The electronics also feature discreet soundhole-mounted controls including Master Vol and Master EQ wih detent. Other features include a set of nickel Epiphone Vintage Premium open-back tuners with an 18:1 ratio, an FSC Certified torrefied composite "blackwood" fingerboard & bridge, a bone nut & saddle, multi-ply bindings, and an imitation tortoise pickguard.

The Go-To Acoustic-Electric


I've always been a fan of Epiphone's acoustic output and this new Acoustic-Electric addition to their lineup doesn't disappoint. The bright, clear sound on this thing cuts through sharply in just about any mix without ruining the natural tone or sound quality of the guitar's sound, thanks to the eSonic preamp system. The look and feel of the guitar is incredibly nice as well with a mahogany finish on the back, sides and neck. And at a remarkably affordable price, there's no reason that this shouldn't be a go-to guitar for anyone's electric-acoustic needs. This is a Sam Ash employee review

Solid wood, solid price!


This is a great value for an all solid wood constructed guitar. It has great tone and resonance that you would expect from solid wood, and is built well. The neck is very comfortable and plays easily. The onboard electronics sound great and make for a gig worthy guitar. This is a fantastic guitar for any player looking for a reasonably priced guitar whether they're a newer player or seasoned guitarist.

Amazing acoustic for any player!


The Masterbilt Dreadnought from Epiphone is an incredible sounding acoustic guitar!!! The large body dreadnought shape allows for a wide midrange to cut through any mix, and the cutaway allows for higher reach on the fretboard without sacrificing tone quality. Perfect as a workhorse guitar or as a backup gigging acoustic!
