Don't miss Masterbilt Century Olympic fan Billy Bragg on tour this summer throughout the UK including appearances at the Victorious Festival on August 25 with Paul Weller, The Long Road Festival on September 9 with the Lone Bellow and Ruby Boots, and the Manchester Folk Festival on October 20. Check out Mr. Bragg's exclusive performance of his classic "New England" filmed for Epiphone during the Americana Festival and read our interview about his classic, Shine A Light, a collection of traditional folk songs made with producer Joe Henry.
"(The Olympic") has been a real great addition to the Shine A Light tour," Bragg told Epiphone. "I was initially only going to use my J-45 acoustic for the whole show, including my solo spot, which would have limited me to my more ballady songs. The compact size of the Olympic gives it a little more bite and the neck seems faster. I just felt like I was wielding something with more kinetic power than an ordinary acoustic, which really helped on the BB songs."
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 along with the cutting edge eSonic™ HD (High Definition) preamp system and Shadow NanoFlex™ HD Under-saddle pickup.
