Reviews of the Epiphone Masterbilt Century Collection are starting to hit the streets and we are loving what we are hearing about our new, award-wining line of acoustic arhctops. Phil O'keefe at Harmony Central just posted his review of the De Luxe Classic model and concluded:

"Because of its size and solid spruce arched top, this guitar sounds huge, with a loud and commanding voice. While the stoutness of the neck may turn off some players, others will love its meaty profile. This guitar loves to be played hard, and the harder you play it, the louder and bigger it gets, without the compression that often limits the output of traditional flat-topped guitars. The projection is simply outstanding. Five minutes with this guitar and you'll know exactly why big archtops were so popular in the pre-electric big band days. That ability to cut through the mix can be equally appreciated in a world music, folk or bluegrass context when you're playing with loud acoustic instruments like drums, fiddles and banjos too. If you're looking for an alternative to the same flat top acoustic guitars that nearly everybody else has used since last century, and want something that has retro appeal that will stand out onstage and that has a different, unique and very cool sound, then you owe it to yourself to try a De Luxe Classic. It's a new archtop for the new century, and one very cool way to sound great while standing out from the crowd."
