"Epiphone Excellente Great Guitar"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

I just received the Epiphone Excellente Guitar after waiting patiently for the backorder. It was worth the wait. I saw this guitar when I was a kid being played by Eddy Arnold on the Opry stage. I fell in love with the look and knew that it was a special guitar. I was so happy to read that they were going to release them 40 years later. I took it out of the box played it and ordered the case right away from zZounds where. I bought the guitar. Buy this Masterbilt guitar. Playability is excellent. Action is low. Stays in tune. Sweet sound. Brilliant for epiphone to re release this guitar. Order today.?worth the wait.

I purchased this guitar from zZounds on 2/22/20 and received it the very next day. The workmanship was perfect. This guitar is manufactured with solid ovangkol wood back and sides with a solid spruce top. It produces a powerful warm mellow tone. The playability action was just a little high but except able. . It came with Gibson light gage strings. Two thumbs up for this guitar.

"Beautiful guitar but very heavy with a thick plastic finish!"
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
Imaging pouring thick honey all over your favorite speaker. That's the one big problem with all of the Masterbilt epiphones and this is no exception. The finish is as thick as a penny...and is very plastic to the point where it feels like a plastic guitar, making the solid wood feature that everyone likes a moot point. It completely squashes the tone. The woods are thick...the braces bulky, basically everything that Gibson did wrong in the 70's is manifest in this guitar. At least a 70's Gibson is nitro lacquer and can be found for the same price as this guitar new. If you are plugging it in for a gig, it's great. If you are looking for amazing open acoustic tone...sorry, not this one. All that said...I bought mine used for half the price of a new one and I'd buy it again.
