Has anyone played one of the Epiphone Masterbilt Archtops?


They have three versions. It's definitely a different sound than a dreadnought.

Here a video with acoustic blues unplugged


Video of one plugged in

Sweet vids! Both videos demonstrate the clipped quality of archtop tone, I like it. Plugged in sounds awesome! I've liked every Epiphone I've had my hands on.

Never played one. The size seems big for me but I adore the looks of archtops. My grandfather was a band and orchestra leader and had a quality archtop that I never even got to see or hear him play. An uncle has it now on display half the country away.

Sure makes me wish I could play guitar. Love the bluesy, jazzy tone. Well done Epiphone.
