The 2019 Masterbilt series honors Epiphone's most iconic acoustic guitars from the 1960s and are built with old-world Masterbilt techniques. The Masterbilt Excellente FT-120 is a historically accurate recreation of the extremely rare square shouldered dreadnought that became a trademark for country superstar Loretta Lynn. The Excellente features a Solid Sitka Spruce top and ovangkol body, an ebony fingerboard with historic "cloud" inlays, and plugs in with the state-of-the-art Fishman Sonitone onboard preamp system for true acoustic tone you can take anywhere. Available in an Antique Natural Aged finish.

The Masterbilt Story
First released in June 1931, the original Epiphone Masterbilt guitars were overseen by founder Epi Stathopoulo who was quoted in the Epiphone 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." And today, we still stand by that promise!

Masterbilt Excellente FT-120
The honky tonk queen of guitars, the Masterbilt Excellente FT-120 debuted in 1963 and with only 139 made between 1963 and 1969, is perhaps modern Epiphone's most rare guitar. Despite its low production numbers, the Excellente became iconic as the trademark acoustic for country music legends Loretta Lynn and her mentor Ernest Tubb, one of the first stars of the Grand Ole Opry. Jack White also used Loretta's Excellente in the making of her Grammy winning album, Van Lear Rose.

The Excellente is made from all solid wood construction and features a solid Sitka spruce top with black and white binding and ovangkol back and sides. The top is set off with a beautiful recreation of the original Excellente pickguard. The maple neck has a walnut and maple center stripe and is hand-set with a tapered dovetail joint at the 14th fret. The Excellente neck has a 1960s era "C" profile, an ebony fingerboard with "cloud" inlays, a 25.5" scale, 20 medium jumbo frets, 12” radius, and a 1.68" bone nut. The headstock has a unique Excellente style "dove wing" profile, the only one of its kind, and features the Epiphone logo in mother of pearl with white binding.

Fishman Sonitone Onboard Preamp System
The Masterbilt Excellente FT-120 features the state-of-the-art Fishman Sonitone onboard preamp system for true acoustic tone when plugged into an acoustic amp or PA system. The preamp is soundhole-mounted and includes easy-access rotary controls for volume and tone. The system is powered by a standard 9-volt battery.

Solid Epiphone Hardware
Like all Masterbilts, the Masterbilt Excellente FT-120 features superior gold hardware and a traditional reverse belly ebony bridge with a bone saddle. Tuning is fast and accurate with gold Kluson Waffleback Vintage tuners with metal buttons and a 15:1 tuning ratio.

Lifetime Warranty
All Epiphone instruments come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson Brands' 365/24/7 Customer Service.
