Epiphone Inspired by Gibson J45 EC in Aged Vintage Sunburst Gloss
The slope-shouldered body proves to be one of Epiphone's most comfortable models. It's made of a solid body mahogany and solid sitka spruce top, ensuring classic character in the bucketloads.
Attached is a comfortable rounded “C” neck with a familiar 24.74 inch scale length fretboard containing contemporary medium-jumbo frets. Completing the humble aesthetic are mother of pearl dot inlays and a vintage sunburst finish. Hardware features nickel Epiphone ivory colour machine heads and bridge pins. The ever-reliable bone nut and saddle combo keep the J-45's tuning super stable.
Shaped with a sloped shoulder and cutaway, the dreadnought body of this guitar is full of wonders that promise to improve playability as well as offering beautiful tonal possibilities. Crafted from mahogany, a robust and reliable wood, the back and sides focus on bringing out the lower to mid range frequencies for a stunning depth of sound that is strongly desired in an acoustic guitar. It has the ability to make your tone sound wonderfully full, an immersive quality that will undoubtedly capture anyone listening, whether you're in the studio or on stage. It is punchy, balanced, and perfect for shining overtones thanks to the emphasised midrange.
The solid sitka spruce top then compliments such a rich tonewood in sublime fashion and offers those shimmering trebles it begs for. Spruce enriches the higher frequencies to deliver the kind of bright clarity that will make every note sing gloriously. Its crisp articulation teams beautifully with the richness of mahogany and is versatile enough to welcome any style of playing.
When you're performing at your absolute best, you don't want to be hindered by poor design. The Epiphone Masterbilt J-45 EC ensures you can reach every single fret without any impediment, allowing you to play better than you ever have. The sloped shoulder and cutaway are innovative modifications that make a world of difference when it comes to playing the higher frets comfortably. With similar tonal properties to that of rosewood, the Indian laurel fretboard embellishes your sound with vibrancy and balance in good measure, the perfect accompaniment to the mahogany neck. It also has a smooth and fast finish which accommodates your fretting even more. From chordal patterns to intricate playing techniques, this fretboard will feel soft and magical underneath your fingertips.
The beauty of this guitar lies in its wondrous combination of acoustic and electric aspects, without ever sacrificing that gorgeous authentic tone. Equipped with clever yet non-invasive electronics, the under-saddle Fishman Sonicore pickup captures the raw, warm tonal qualities of the guitar, meaning its natural sound is amplified with glorious definition. Tailor your sound with precision using the Fishman Presys II preamp, it includes volume, bass, and treble controls to give you amazing freedom and versatility. From small, intimate settings to larger, sold-out venues, the Epiphone Masterbilt J-45 EC promises a magical gig.
