  1. Good for you! My Esonic2 in my 5 yr. old AJ500RENS works flawlessly and sounds phenomenal. Guess I got lucky with this one.
  2. We get it......you hate AJ Masterbilts. Lets move on.
  3. Congrats on your new AJ. On the finish....just use a soft cloth dampened with water.
  4. Technology has come a long way over the years with AG pickups. Lots of variations and combinations thereof from L.R. Baggs, K&K, Fishman, Sunrise, etc. I'm using the poorly received Esonic2 system that came with my AJ. Apparently, I have the only "properly-working" Esonic2 system in the world...lol. It sounds absolutely wonderful.
  5. In case you haven't seen the link I posted over at HCAG.... http://acapella.harmony-central.com/showthread.php?2874320-FS-Epiphone-Masterbilt-EF-500M I don't know this fella but, he seems to be a well-respected seller. Always has really good gear for sale. Seems like a fair deal to me. I've never warmed to the DR models (too blocky-looking for me.) Love my AJ 500RE.
  6. Kody, I'll chime in. Masterbilts ship with these on them. I'm using D'Addario PB EJ26's on my AJ 500RE (11 - 52.) They're OK, a bit boomy to me. I may go to 80/20 strings. I hear they are a bit brighter. I haven't tried out any other brands on this guitar yet as I've only had it a couple of months. Some praise the John Pearse brand on their MB's, but a few claim they don't last very long.
  7. I like mine too....on my '07 AJ500RE. There must have been a bad run on those at some time. Mine is perfect...so far. I can get it much more natural-sounding than the promo vid Epi is featuring.
  8. Getting ready to install my strap button soon. On a previous acoustic I used this position on the install. This way holds the guitar in a comfortable position and actually pulls your guitar towards you.
  9. Tough crowd alright. :D I thought about joining the Acoustic Guitar Forum, but I already have several strikes against me..... ...I own an Epiphone AJ 500RE (not booteek enough) ...It's rosewood (they hate RW over there) ....Not that great of a player....still learning ....My git has an eSonic2 that "works" (that really pisses 'em off.) :D
  10. A silver Creek case came with my AJ. Best case for an acoustic I've ever had. Not sure if they'll fit your EF, but check the specs....you may get lucky. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/silver-creek-vintage-archtop-hollowbody-guitar-case
  11. Wish I could help but, I must have the only "working" Esonic2 in existence (according to the reviews I've read here & elsewhere) on my AJ500RE. It works perfectly and sounds lovely.
  12. Hmmmm.....maybe I have a rare one?
  13. This is what I got from them. Ser. # starts with GR Any idea where "GR" is?
