Masterbilt status


Recommended Posts

Do we know what the status of the Masterbilt line is?


They seem to be out of stock at all of the online dealers. Musician's Friend has an in-stock date of later this month, but those dates are generally meaningless.


If they will be returning... what are the chances we'll add a Super Jumbo model? I'd pay $800 or so for an SJ-500 model.


There was an Elitist J-45 and SJ-200, after all...

I am curious as well. I ordered an AJ-500ME from Musicians Friend in early December because I'd heard the line was being discontinued. A day later they showed as no longer in stock, so lucky me.


Out of curiosity, I checked again a few days ago and GC had the AJ-500ME listed as discontinued. After I saw this post, I checked the GC site and now they have an expected date of December, 2010. Prior to buying mine, I had been looking for the sunburst version and checked with Epiphone. Got an e-mail from them confirming that the sunburst had been discontinued, though it's still shown on the site as an option, so they aren't exactly forthcoming with info on the site.
