The historic “Advanced Jumbo” joins the Epiphone Masterbilt Family!
Epiphone continues its historic Masterbilt series with the new Epiphone Masterbilt 2015 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 the “J-45” has been the go-to guitar for songwriters and rhythm guitarists. Epiphone’s first Ltd. Ed. reissue of the “The Workhorse” J-45 earned it a “Mark of Excellence Award” from Guitar One magazine and now the new Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME Acoustic/Electric brings two legends together for the first time!
Legendary Masterbilt Series
First released in June 1931, the original line of Epiphone Masterbilt guitars made a big impression on musicians and heralded the first great era of acoustic guitars. Today, the new line of Epiphone Masterbilt instruments continues that reputation around the world.
The original Epiphone Masterbilt catalog made the promise: “The possessor of an EPIPHONE instrument has the assurance that every possible precaution has been taken to build instruments for lifetime performance and pleasure.” And Epiphone still stands by that promise today!
