A very rare model, it was Epiphone's competition with Gibson's L-4, Epiphone's only Masterbilt model with a round soundhole. After two years the model was changed to ?-holes. It has a carved spruce top and a pressed maple back, 16 3/8" lower bout, 25.5" scale and 1 3/4" nut. There's an area of damage at the lower edge of the bottom bout that's been professionally repaired, the set-up is excellent, with great new jumbo frets. The tone is remarkable: a true marriage of archtop and flattop, with an expansive bass and sweet high end.
