People are right about it
Nikolaev88, 11.01.2018
This morning i received this guitar.What can i say...i'm staying hungry because this guitar is AWESOME!I'm not a professional player, i'm still somewhere in the beginning, but i can surely tell that this guitar is top class.When i opened it it was packed really good, it was pleasure to unbox it.The guitar is so nice for the hand - that smooth satin feeling! What can i say about the looks? Well, to summarize it in one word -beautiful! The sunburst color really gives it this retro look, almost like you're looking at history.(it is better in person) The line in the back gives it some creativity i really like it. When i tuned the guitar and i played the first chord i just stood there smiling ( we all know this feeling, when the guitar is real good)

I bought the guitar based on Thomann reviews and i contacted Thomann's people.Once again I'm amazed by the dedication of the people who work there.Everything was 10/10 with the service from order to delivery

PROS:
Looks good
Sounds good
Feels good
Smells good
You will look good with it

CONS:
"Made in China" sticker which was annoying to remove

An english evaluation for non-german speakers here in germany
Merthar, 24.02.2020
I've bought this guitar nearly 2 months ago and would like to write down a couple of words about it. Firstly, this is my step-up, I have been playing a Fender CD-60 for the last 6 years since I started playing guitar and felt like I could use an upgrade. Since I had the economical stability I thought well, lets not just upgrade from a 100€ guitar to 300€, lets find something that will sound like a high end guitar overall and won't cost me a thousand. As I was reading all the evaluations and notes that people have written throughout their experiences with this guitar, I couldn't be more hyped about anything. The virtuosos that I look up to, guitar players all around had all but good reviews to give. After I went out and tried the guitar myself at a store, I decided that this was it, for sure. For the last two months I've been playing it on a daily basis and the better I get, the more surprising it sounds. If I were to name one thing to not deem the guitar as the ''perfection'' it'd be Esonic2's buttons being slicone, kinda bothers me compared to the general worksmanship.

Great quality ELECTRO Acoustic from Epiphone
Strummer, 12.05.2017
Ordered this DR-500MCE VS to play in our Function Band, mainly for ballads, and country.
It was so good looking and sounded so good plugged in, our bass player liked it so much, he bought the natural version!
I like that it has two pickups, one can be used in a electric guitar amp, for using different tones and distortions.
The other can go into my Roland acoustic 90 amp, or into the mixing desk, or using the blend control you can mix the two how you want, creating different timbre''s.
I can't fault it acousticly, or plugged in, and now I've played it for about a year, It's sounding better as the top is bedding in.
So easy to play, if your used to an electric guitar neck, this neck will be an easier transition for you.
This Masterbuilt' guitar is certainly my best acoustic, and It covers everything I need in a spades. Can't find any con's.
A "pleke'd neck, bone saddle and nut, duel pickups, inbuilt precision tuner and Epiphone quality..just great!

who needs gibson
Graeme D., 04.06.2013
seriously if youve been pining over a gibson j45 or hummingbird for years this is the answer to your prayers, it was to mine. the dr-500 mce build quality is exquisite. whatever you might think about asian luthiers, the guys building these really know what they are doing. the tone is full bellied and bright and you will certainly not be lacking for voice as this really is excellent. the shadow preamp system is fantastic and can give you all the range you need however i did find there is only one drawback to it and that is the battery life. you will need to disconnect the battery when not in use or you'll be going through a lot.

aside from a silly battery an excellent acoustic guitar which you could easily mistake for something in the £1000+ range.
