Epiphone continues its historic Masterbilt series with the new Epiphone Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME Acoustic/Electric. The legendary J-45 round shoulder dreadnought has been the driving power behind decades of classics in every genre-rock, pop, and country. From Hank Williams to John Lennon the “J-45” has been the go-to guitar for songwriters and rhythm guitarists. Epiphone’s first Ltd. Ed. reissue of the "The Workhorse" J-45 earned it a “Mark of Excellence Award” from Guitar One magazine and now the new Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME Acoustic/Electric brings two legends together for the first time!
The Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-45ME acoustic-electric guitar stems from a renowned lineage. Since their first release in June of 1931, Masterbuilt Epiphone acoustics have been coveted by guitarists of all genres for their easy playability and exceptional tone.
