About This Listing

Up for sale is a 2005 Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-500RC (Rosewood Cedar) SNS (slot-head, natural satin) 12-fret slot-head made in the renowned Grand Rewards factory in China. This “Advanced Jumbo” acoustic has a solid cedar top with solid Indian rosewood back and sides. It's got gold open-back tuning machines. Natural Satin finish. 1.75 inch nut. New bone saddle with plenty of height.  "Soft V” neck. The bridge, often a weak point with this model, has already been professionally re-set, and it's solid. Excellent action and playability. Very little fretwear. Known for its distinctive warm tone and huge volume. Comes with original Masterbilt case with built-in hygrometer. This model very rarely comes up for sale.

I recently noticed a couple hairline surface cracks on the solid rosewood back. They're extremely thin, not through the wood, not noticeable except with a particular light angle. One from the bottom upwards about 4 inches and a shorter one (2 ½ inches) from the top. They don't affect tone or playability. It also has a couple tiny, very minor nicks in the cedar top. Otherwise, this AJ-500RC is in very good VG condition.
