The DR-500MCE combines traditional construction methods modern features to deliver a new "vintage" instrument with deep, rich tone with, shimmering highs and just the right amount of mids. Other guitars around this price use laminated and pressed backs and spliced neck joints, but you can be sure that every Masterbilt holds true to it's all solid wood promise and its great heritage.

There's no doubting that the DR-500MCE sounds great played by itself, but plug it in and it really comes to life. Made in co-operation with Shadow, the eSonic2 pick-up preamp features a built-in tuner and sounds great! Under the traditional bone saddle is Shadow's low-impedance, NanoFlex pickup. Shadow are keen to point that this is not a piezo. It's a unique sensing material that features integrated active electronics to not only pick-up string vibration, but also the subtle vibrations of the top and body for much truer representation of this acoustics tone. Added to this there's also the revolutionary NanoMag pickup mounted at the end of the fingerboard. Exclusively from Shadow, the NanoMag features 3 Samarian-Cobalt magnets and an integrated active circuit to perfectly capture the guitar's tone, as well as all manner of harmonics. This system even gives you a choice of either 1/4" mono output blending both pickups or a 1/4" stereo output splitting the two pickups so you now have great opportunities to create the perfect acoustic tone live!
