Epiphone Olympic Masterbilt Acoustic Honey Burst
The Epiphone Olympic Masterbilt Acoustic in Honey Burst re-creates the original Olympic archtops from the 1930s.
Powerful note clarity is there in spades thanks to the solid Sitka spruce arched top. And features such as the on-board Shadow pickup system bring the New Century Olympic into the future with a plugged-in voice that proudly displays all of the natural character of a great archtop acoustic. The controls are tucked neatly away to not interrupt the vintage and curvy lines of the guitar.
Assertive may be the best term to describe the full yet cutting tone that a great archtop acoustic guitar displays. This sound puts much of the focus on the guitar's midrange, making the instrument superb for powerful chord work and letting your single-note runs really jump off of the fretboard, which were essential for cutting through the sound of your band in the days before modern guitar amplification. The New Century Olympic delivers this character through its solid Sitka spruce arched top and mahogany back, sides, and neck.
