The Epiphone Masterbilt De Luxe Classic 4-string Bass is a gorgeous acoustic-electric instrument. Oozing with vintage styling, the De Luxe Classic features a solid spruce top and a stunning flame maple back and sides. This bass's deep, expressive tone is beautifully enhanced by traditional longitudinal bracing, and when you plug it in, eSonic electronics capture every ounce of your instrument's sonic character. The De Luxe Classic's comfortable rounded C-shaped neck is a treat to play, and its smooth ebony fingerboard only adds to the enjoyment. The Masterbilt De Luxe Classic 4-string Bass comes complete with aged nickel hardware, including a replica tailpiece and upgraded 18:1 tuners.
eSonic/Shadow electronics ensure premium plugged-in sound
Unamplified, the De Luxe Classic 4-string Bass sounds incredible. That's why Epiphone outfitted it with a cutting-edge eSonic HD preamp system and a Shadow NanoFlex HD under-saddle pickup. This combination ensures that every nuance of your acoustic bass's tone is preserved when you plug it into your favorite amplifier. The Shadow NanoFlex HD pickup features easy-to-access Master Volume and Master EQ controls mounted just inside the De Luxe Classic's lower F-hole. The eSonic HD preamp is powered by a standard 9-volt battery that's a breeze to access.
Rounded C neck profile is comfortable and full
The De Luxe Classic 4-string Bass's great-playing neck is made from five pieces of mahogany and maple. This construction promotes good warp resistance over time, and its medley of tonewoods represents the warmth and articulation Epiphone archtops are known for. Beyond that, Epiphone's chunky Rounded C neck profile is a joy to play.
Undeniable are the De Luxe Classic's striking historic looks. From the Aged Gloss body finish to the Historic reissue tuners, Sweetwater bassists were immediately impressed with the level of care that went into making this acoustic bass look and feel like a historic instrument. Whether you're old school and looking for an archtop with an old soul, or new school and looking for some vintage flavor, the Masterbilt De Luxe Classic 4-string Bass will deliver.
