Epiphone Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Royale Electric Guitar
The Epiphone Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Royale Electric Guitar that outclasses other hollow-body guitars in its price range! World famous for making some of the best and most innovative hollow-body guitars, Epiphone conjures up some of it's past with the Emperor Swingster. Starting with the same body and neck as used on their Emperor-II guitar and made famous by the jazz master himself, Joe Pass, Epiphone swings into action and turns it into a serious twangin', rock-a-billy slingin', country flingin' machine!
Classic Construction with SwingBucker Pickups!
With it's hand-scalloped arched spruce top combined with a laminated arched-back maple body and glued-in 3-piece hard maple neck, the Swingster has what it takes to satisfy any professional's demand for great tone. At the heart of the guitar are Epiphone's SwingBucker pickups and a sophisticated series/parallel electronic switching package. Specially designed for the Swingster, the humbuckers offer no hum performance and feature classic Alnico-V magnets, enamel wire and over-wound coils for the perfect combination of warmth and bite.
Two push/pull Tone controls allow you to change each pickup's output individually from parallel to series wiring creating a palette of useful sounds to tap into ranging from warm humbuckers to "quacky" single-coil type sounds and everything in-between. Of course, any swinging machine needs a vibrato and the Swingster is no exception featuring a Bigsby Licensed B30 with original style "wire" handle as preferred by "Certified Guitar Player" and legend, Chet Atkins.
But wait... there's MORE!
Unlike some, Epiphone spares no expense by adding a "pinned" Tune-o-matic bridge with roller saddles for smooth operation and accurate return to pitch, which is preferred when using a vibrato.
Loads of Bling
Topping it all off are Epiphone's trademark, multi-bound headstock with the classic mother-of-pearl "vine" inlay, premium gold Grover tuners and a multi-bound, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with block inlays. And Epiphone stands behind every guitar they make with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 Customer Service.
