Exceptional tonewoods deliver timeless tone
The Epiphone Masterbilt Frontier combines a toneful Sitka spruce top with maple sides and back. Maple is known for its sonic transparency, which makes it highly reflective of your personal playing style. Solid maple, used for the back and sides of the Frontier, is complemented by a solid Sitka spruce top. As a top tonewood, Sitka spruce offers a combination of strength and elasticity that delivers a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation that’s ideal for a wide range of playing styles, from delicate fingerpicking to aggressive flatpicked strumming. Together, these premium tonewoods make for a highly responsive and expressive instrument.

The Epiphone Masterbilt Frontier comes equipped with Fishman Sonitone electronics that are ready for you to hit the stage or plug into your computer for easy recording. The pickup controls are mounted inside the soundhole, giving you easy access to volume and tone.
