"Epiphone Masterbilt Century Olympic" That's a mouthful lol I have been a David Rawlings fan for years. So I thought I would get the Epiphone Olympic in hopes it will allow me to ease into the archtop realm for not a lot of money. I knew going in that a MII version would not sound like a vintage one. But as long as it was in the ballpark and played well, I'd be good with it. Action was a bit high out of the box but I lowered it a lot, expecting to hear some fret buzz but was pleasantly surprised. Action at the (bone) nut is fine and the neck has almost no relief at all. I'm going to put heavy gauge strings on it after the stock Cleartone light strings wear out. The string slots will need to be filed to accommodate the move up in gauge. No fret sprout or any other issues. Tuners seem fine. First things I noticed. Not much low end at all and it sounds nothing like a flat top guitar. It's not a guitar to strum cowboy chords on. But playing accompaniment with someone playing a flat top, it sounds nice. Finger-picking and arpeggios is where it shines. Got it Tuesday and the more I play it, the more I dig it. I have not tried to plug it in yet. It has an under saddle pickup with. Volume and EQ control inside the edge of the lower f hole. The neck profile is fairly fat. Enough so that those who do not like fat necks at all won't like it. I love it though. After lowering the action, placing my fingers on the fretted notes requires as little pressure as any instrument I've played. It's a small body archtop and is very comfortable to play but one thing I learned quickly is that playing while playing while seated I prefer to rest the lower bout in my lap rather than the waist on my right leg. It's kind of spoiling me. Now my Yamaha FG335 doesn't feel so comfortable. And I never noticed that with the Yamaha before. I also found I don't like using the strap pin on the heel of the neck at all. The Olympic wants to tilt toward the floor using it. Attaching the strap to the headstock is the way to go, for me anyhow. Fretboard is pau ferro. So overall, I'm very surprised I like this bottom shelf archtop so much. Case is nice as well.
