The editors of Vintage Guitar gave a stunning "VG Approved Gear" review to the new Epiphone Masterbilt Century De Luxe Classic in the new August 2017 issue calling it "truly special" and that "this modern archtop seems to resonate more fully and longer than vintage models."

"Unamplified, the guitar is an easy-playing modern archtop. The tone is warm and woody, and should only improve with age...The electronics accurately  amplified the acoustic tone--there was next to no distortion or even change to the natural sound. The Master EQ allows the player to adjust the bass or treble boost to shape or emphasize aspects of the sound. Impressive. 

If you ever yearned for a vintage archtop but were held back by it's utility, time have just changed.
