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 force behind decades of classics in every genre—rock, pop, and country—from Hank Williams to John Lennon. The Masterbilt AJ-45ME features a solid Sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, and a dovetail neck to body joint. New this year is the Fishman® Sonicore™ under-saddle pickup and Sonitone™ preamp system. The discreet preamp right inside the soundhole features a master volume control and tone control. Hardshell or EpiLite™ case sold separately.
