Epiphone Masterbilt Zenith Classic (F Holes)

A History of Archtop Excellence Since 1931 Reinvented for the 21st Century!

Epiphone’s first Masterbilt archtops quickly rose to popularity during the 1930s “Big Band” era and were renowned for their warm woody tone, wide tonal range and punchy volume.  However, with the invention of the electric guitar pickup, archtop acoustic guitars quickly became equipped with magnetic amplification and were for the most part, forever transformed into “electric” guitars.  Until now… Epiphone, the leader in affordable professional archtop guitars, reinvents the archtop again by combining our original, time-tested designs with 21st century acoustic guitar electronics to bring you the new Masterbilt Century Collection™.  The first collection of archtop “acoustic/electric” guitars designed to be played and amplified as true acoustic instruments.  Just play one and you will immediately feel and hear the difference between today’s common “flat top” acoustic guitar and the unique voice of a Masterbilt Century.  Plug one in and prepare to be amazed!  Really.  You have to hear it to believe it.  Now with the eSonic™ HD preamp and Shadow NanoFlex™ HD Under-saddle pickup, you can plug in any Masterbilt Century archtop acoustic/electric into an amp or any PA and hear your guitar’s beautiful and dynamic true acoustic tone on any size stage. For flattop guitarists who have only played old plywood archtops, the sound of a Masterbilt Century guitars will be a revelation. Get ready for a totally new acoustic guitar experience!

"Hi Stuart, Collings is brilliant. Thanks so much for sorting. Excellent work. Are you on Facebook or Twitter? I'll post a blurb. Best wishes."
Brooks Williams

"Well I went in yesterday and I needed a amp for a gig last night and the staff were very friendly. They help me out loads and they was just genuine people not people try to push sales like in shops like Xxxxxxx."
Hayden Guitarist

"I live in Spain and for the first time I ordered a guitar from Electromusic, a Turner CLS-01E. I would like to say that the attention was very good, and it's been a very pleasant transaction. Also I'm very happy with the guitar. I asked Pete for advice, since I hadn't had the chance to try it before, I had only tried a different Turner model, which I loved, and I had only listened to the CLS-01E on a video on youtube, played by Clive Gregson. It sounded great in the video, but I wanted to have the opinion of a professional. Pete said he vouched for the quality, and I ordered it based partly on the video and to a large extent on Pete's advice. For all of it, I want to thank Pete, who was the one I was in touch with, and the shop."

(Guitarist)

"The nice thing about Electromusic is that since I first visited your original shop as a young drummer ( with a waistline ,hair ,shades and ego )  your business ethic has remained the same. Everyone is given star treatment by people who really know their stuff. Maybe the shop is now many times larger, but you have retained the vital elements of friendly professional service, problem solving and attention to detail and customer satisfaction .  Not to mention great products at competitive prices - Try getting all of this on line.."
John Drummer (and struggling Guitarist)

"I had been told by my local guitar shops that I may stand a chance of getting one of the last ones and have had one on order since February. After visiting your website yesterday morning I am now the proud owner of one within 24 hours. It really is a breath of fresh air to deal with a company who gets it right. Thanks again."
Andy Mandolin Player

"I've been up and down the country in guitar shops and this place is DEFINITELY the best, without a shadow of doubt."
Greg Guitar Player

"These days service like yours is virtually nonexistent and we’re very quick to complain, so I would just like to thank you both very much for all your help and advice in helping me come to my decision. You’re exactly what a great guitar store should be. I would just like to say what a pleasure it was."
Mike Guitar Player
