Epiphone, Premier Guitar and Shadow Electronics unveil the Masterbilt Century Collection

We're feeling a little exhausted but very satisfied after an incredible week at Summer NAMM 2016 in Nashville. The Epiphone booth had non-stop traffic and the new Epiphone Masterbilt Century Acoustic Archtop lineup was received very well. So well, in fact, that NAMM U awarded the line their coveted "Best of Show" award! We could not be more excited and can't wait for you to see and play these incredible instruments. More info is coming at you July 1st on Epiphone.com but we were able to unveil the collection to our dealers and distributors at a private event on Friday night at Nashville's world famous Bourbon Street Boogie Bar.

Very special thanks to our co-sponsors Premier Guitar and Shadow Electronics who made this event possible and also to the talented performers that made this a night to remember and showcased these great guitars with their amazing talent. Here's a behind the scenes look for you.
