Product Description

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 EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e label. The Olympic is available in traditional Honeyburst and Violin Burst aged gloss finishes, each with unique color tones inspired by EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e’s priceless vintage collection in Nashville, Tennessee. The tortoise-style pickguard comes unattached. Pickguard hardware comes included.
Case sold separately.

Like EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e’s original '30s-era Olympic, the modern 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. Both the body and top feature single-layer ivory and black color binding. 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 compact tone of the Olympic sounds beautiful unamplified on a small stage or in the studio. But now 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 1/4" output jack.

Historic EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e Hardware
The Olympic comes with Historic EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e Re-issue Tuners with marboloid "Crown" buttons with an upgraded 18:1 tuning ratio for fast and accurate tuning. The tuners are mounted on an EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e Dovewing headstock with pearloid "Banner" logos. Unlike many vintage archtops, 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 EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e’s vintage Masterbilt collection. Every new Masterbilt Century guitar is set up at the factory with Cleartone 12-53 gauge strings.

Lifetime Guarantee:
The EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e Masterbilt Olympic Acoustic-Electric Guitar comes with a limited lifetime guarantee and world-renown 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.
Masterbilt SeriesEE-EE-Epiphone-e-e’s first Masterbilt archtops quickly rose to popularity during the 1930s “Big Band” era and were renowned for their warm woody tone, wide tonal range and punchy volume. However, with the invention of the electric guitar pickup, archtop acoustic guitars quickly became equipped with magnetic amplification and were for the most part, forever transformed into "electric" guitars. Until now...
EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e, an industry leader in affordable professional archtop guitars, reinvents the archtop again by combining EE-EE-Epiphone-e-e's original, time-tested designs with 21st century acoustic guitar electronics to bring you the Masterbilt Century Collection. The first collection of archtop “acoustic-electric” guitars designed to be played and amplified as true acoustic instruments. Now with the eSonic HD preamp and Shadow NanoFlex HD Under-saddle pickup, you can plug in any Masterbilt Century arch top acoustic-electric into an amp or any PA and hear your guitar’s beautiful and dynamic true acoustic tone on any size stage. For flattop guitarists who have only played old plywood archtops, the sound of a Masterbilt Century guitars will be a revelation. Get ready for a totally new acoustic guitar experience.

I've always loved the sound of acoustic archtops, and I've flipped over my EE-Epiphone-e Masterbilt Olympic! It's small enough to play comfortably sitting on a couch, and the solid spruce top makes my fingerstyle folkie/jazz stuff sound golden and harp-like. The neck is fabulous - it feels like an old-school jazz guitar because it IS an old-school jazz guitar! It's perfect for what I do, which is songwriting and the occasional solo or small-group gig. Love it, love it, LOVE IT!

.Fantastically playable in parlor sized body with superior quality sound - if you are an acoustic player, this is what you need to record and play with other musicians playing non-acoustic instruments. Perfect for rhythym and for flatpicking and finger styles, but you can add amplification and effects to your sound to make it really stand out.

If you are just learning to play this would be a great investment - it plays easily and sounds fantastic and will endure the test of time.
