The Masterbilt Olympic Acoustic/Electric Guitar is a smaller-sized archtop with an arched Solid Spruce top with traditional Longitudinal Bracing, a Mahogany body, and classic f-holes. Inside the upper f-hole is a 1930s era replica Epiphone label. The tortoise style pickguard comes unattached. Pickguard hardware comes included. Like Epiphone’s original 30s era Olympic, the new Masterbilt Olympic has a unique body profile that’s smaller than typical archtops but with a tonal range that belies its small size. With its signature f-holes and Solid Spruce top, the Olympic is an ideal instrument for singers and soloists. The Mahogany neck has a full rounded “C”- profile that is glued to the body with a dovetail joint for a precise fit so the Olympic will resonate as one piece of wood. The Rosewood fretboard has 20 medium frets, a 25.5” scale length, and pearloid "Dot” inlays modeled after the original Olympics.

The cutting edge eSonic HD (High Definition) preamp system and Shadow NanoFlex™ HD Under-saddle pickup make it possible for archtop players to hear their instrument amplified exactly as they hear it unplugged. The Shadow NanoFlex HD Under-saddle pickup has easy-to-access controls for Master Volume and Master EQ mounted just inside the lower f-hole. Now you have complete control over how much of the acoustic guitar is amplified. The pre-amp system is powered by a standard 9-volt battery that is easy to access, located near the ¼” output jack.

Hardware includes Historic Epiphone Re-issue Tuners with Marboloid "Crown" buttons with an upgraded 18:1 tuning ratio for fast and accurate tuning. The Olympic has a dual action truss rod for easy and perfect set-up. The Floating Adjustable Ebonoid Bridge is made from a synthesized material that has the grain-like texture and look of Ebony but is harder and more reliable for years of playing. The historic aged all-nickel Trapeze Tailpiece is also inspired from Epiphone’s vintage Masterbilt collection. Every new Masterbilt Century guitar is set up at the factory with Cleartone 12-53 gauge strings. An optional vintage-styled hard case is also available.

Incredible quality jazz box for a great price


This guitar is another excellent blast from the past brought to you by Epiphone. Its smaller size make it incredibly easy to play without sacrificing any tone. Its built in Nano-flex pickup and Esonic hd preamp give it the power to vut through the mix better than many archtops its size. Its mahogany body and neck along with a beautiful solid spruce top are a perfect mix to make this guitar look as gorgeous as it plays. This is one guitar that certainly lives up to the masterbuilt name! This is an employee written review by CGray at Sam Ash store #57
