  2. Gorgeous guitar. I'm a little confused on the various Epi Masterbilt model numbers. Could someone tell me exactly what specific model number this is? The label is too blurry to read. Thanks, Scott
  3. Hope you don't mind that I bump and renew this thread. I am DESPERATELY trying to locate and purchase an Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500mns. There is currently one on Reverb at $499, but I'm hoping to do a little better on price. If you live in SoCal and own one of these and are hard up for money, I'll drive to your location and pay a fair price. I already own four Masterbilts and need an OM model. Didn't they also make this OM style with a bunch of bling on it? Thanks. Please feel free to PM me if you have any leads on this guitar. scott
  4. I'd kill for a grandchild right about now. My oldest is getting married in Dec so we hope to have some rugrats running around this place soon. love the story, scott
  5. Great post. Question: Are you mainly an electric player or an acoustic player? Most acrylic picks are very screeching and noisy when playing acoustic. thanks, scott
  6. Cougar, thanks for your post. Yes, I've had amazing luck with the Epi MBs. One thing I noticed: One of my AJ-500Ms is the loudest guitar I've ever owned. I've had some great guitars in my stable through the years, but this one's a real screamer, the only guitar I've ever owned that one could call a "cannon". This particular one has the satin top, not the glossy one. Is it possible that lighter finish allows the top to vibrate more? It's really a noticeable difference. thanks, sm
  7. Folks, even though I'm new around here, a lot of your already know what a total Epi Masterbilt nut I am. I currently own four of them. I recently bought an incredible Eastman OM-40 fingerstyle guitar; it has all the bells and whistles and blings and will be with me a LONG time. However, I've learned from bitter experience never to take my best guitars to what I call "uncontrolled situations" -- open mics, drunken parties, jams with people I don't know well, etc. I'm on the hunt for a used OM under $500. I love the wider 1.75" nut on OM models. Has anyone played this model? This is NOT the cutaway, but the straight OM with no factory electronics (I prefer to add my own). Thanks for your input, scott memmer
  8. Cougar, yes to my knowledge those are the pick of the litter, esp the round-shouldered models. Just amazing all-solid wood guitars for the money, especially used for $400 or so. Funny story. I have a lot of guitars, so I'm frequently at my luthier's here in Los Angeles. A couple months ago he was talking with a customer at the counter about good used dreadnoughts under $500. Knowing nothing about my preferences (he hasn't worked on any of my Epis), he says to the guy, "The best thing out there used is to pick up a clean Epiphone Masterbilt. Those are sweet guitars." Here's a guy who works on hundreds of guitars every year, and in thirty years has seen the insides of thousands. This said a lot. I just nodded knowingly. scott memmer
  9. Dub, did you find any of my socks in there? sm
  10. Players often play completely different picks for acoustic vs electric. For example, playing a steel string acoustic guitar with a coin usually produces a very raspy sound.
  11. Prairie, hmmmm, intriguing.......
  12. Mel, yeah, I love those cases. I have two myself. Not only is the case great, but the pocket on the outside is the bomb. Good to hear from you..... sm
  13. Buc, absolutely true. Genuine tortoise is not incredibly durable. I've been playing my old ones for forty years now. The brittleness increases as they age. Playing for more than four decades, I was shocked a few years ago to discover how closely casein picks mimic the tone and feel of genuine TS. It's quite remarkable. Folks, if you've never played casein, you owe yourself the experience. A good place to start is the wonderful Fast Turtle line from Jon Pearse. At less than ten bucks each, they have the look, feel and tone that casein is known for: https://www.stringsandbeyond.com/jopefatutogu.html sm
  14. Murph, one reason I never got into bevels is because everyone likes a different kind of bevel. There is no "standard" bevel. Almost without exception, the best players I've read about or know personally all do their own bevels -- that is, they re-bevel the bevel. So I just don't get involved. As for Dunlop's production methods, I have doubt (about 98%) that they hand bevel or finish the Primetones in any manner. This would not fit their business model. For the amount of volume they do and their target profit margins, they need to remove all human hands from the manufacturing process. I'd bet my eye teeth the Primetone line is injection-molded. I do expect them to jump into the "premium" pick market in the next five years or so, perhaps by acquisition. However, they'd have a huge marketing gap if they started selling $30 picks and the next closest far less than $10.00. They need a pick line selling ideally for $14.95, then you have the traditional steps of good-better-best. My two cents, Memmer
  15. Murph, we're at the dawn of a new era, and Blue Chip opened Pandora'S Box. To give you just an inkling. Within the DuPont family of materials alone, the BC material has more than ten brothers and sisters that have never been turned into guitar picks, by anyone. There are more than a hundred (100) engineering thermoplastics that have never been tested by anyone as a possible guitar pick material. Easily over a hundred. It's just begun..... scott memmer
