Be sure and check out the March 2006 issue of Acoustic Guitar Magazine! On page 28, Teja Gerken reviews the Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-500RC 12-Fret. Here's a sneak peek at what Teja had to say:

...Our review guitar had cosmetically attractive woods, and its craftsmanship was very clean in all visible areas...

...I found myself enamored of its open quality and strong lower midrange...

...Epiphone's AJ-500RC 12-Fret is a very cool guitar with a combination of specs and features that are difficult to find in its price range... 

Acoustic Guitar Associate Editor Shawn Hammond added this:

...the guitars remarkable, bell-like sustain and balanced response are exceptional for dynamic fingerstyle playing. I was especially impressed with the guitar's note separation - how distinctly individual strings ring out, even in complex chords...
