Inspired by the iconic J-45 now with Fishman electronics

Epiphone continues its historic Masterbilt series with the Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-45ME Acoustic/Electric. The legendary J-45 round shoulder dreadnought has been the driving power behind decades of classics in every genre--rock, pop, and country from Hank Williams to John Lennon. Featuring a solid Sitka Spruce top and dovetail neck to body joint. New this year, is the Fishman Sonitone™ under-saddle pickup system. The discreet preamp right inside the soundhole features a master volume control and tone control. Hardshell or EpiLite™ case sold separately.
