Epiphone Masterbilt Excellente

Perhaps the rarest Epiphone model ever made, only 139 Excellente acoustic guitars were produced between 1963-70. The beautifully ornate, top-of-the-line Excellente was made famous by country music legend Loretta Lynn, and now it returns as part of the new Masterbilt™ Collection. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top, solid ovangkol back and sides, an ebony fingerboard with historic pearl cloud inlays, bone nut and saddle, and gold vintage-style Waffleback tuners. Powered by the Fishman® Sonitone™ onboard preamp system, it's ready for the studio or stage. 

This guitar is in very good condition and has undergone a full setup and inspection from our in-house luthier. The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and exhibits only light fretwear. Cosmetically, there are some imperfections to the finish such as some small dings and scuffing to the back of the body and the binging near the neck heel, gentle playwear to the back of the body near the bass side lower bout, playwear to the side of the body, light delamination to the end graft (lower strap button), a scratch in the finish next to the soundhole/rosette, light imperfection where the fingerboard meets the soundhole, and some wear to the face of the headstock, all of which can be seen in photos.
