I'm extremely pleased with my purchase from Sam Ash, the Masterbuilt guitar that I purchased is excellent the fact that it's plekd, is a real bonus in so much as I do that at Mike. Lull's here in Bellevue,WA. To all my guitars. The Masterbuilt guitar first of all earned its name Masterbuilt, fit and finish on this guitar at this price point and also it Woods is unheard of. Somehow Epiphone through Sam Ash husband Apple II bring the guitarist fine instrument at a price you can afford. I'm 72 years old professional musician, I do like guitars that are built well and instruments that's your craftsmanship. Enclosing if you're looking for it a very very classic guitar solid wood at a reasonable price this is your destination.
