Epiphone Limited Edition Wildkat Black Royale Electric Guitar
The Epiphone Wildkat is an Epiphone original. This smaller-body, semi-hollow guitar has great vintage sound and is remarkably comfortable to play! Now the Wildkat is new again. The stunning Limited Edition Wildkat Black Royale Electric Guitar has been outfitted with a black pearl finish, silver sparkle binding, and nickel hardware to make a guitar totally unlike anything Epiphone has offered before.
Not Like Other Archtops
Epiphone is a leader in archtop design and has been since the 1930's . An early pioneer in archtops even before they were electrified, Epiphone was never afraid to do something out of the ordinary. With no notable changes in archtop design by anybody in decades, Epiphone took the archtop and practically married it to a solid body guitar. And with a sharp new look, the Wildkat Royale now takes its place among all-time great designs.
The Wildkat Royale’s innovative design starts with a solid piece of warm, sustain-rich mahogany that is computer-routed to create an acoustic guitar-like body except with a “center block” area like an ES-335. The body is then covered with a beautiful black pearl finish with silver sparkle binding and nickel hardware to create a semi-hollowbody masterpiece. The Wildkat Royale’s mahogany body is matched with a hand-fitted, glued-in solid mahogany neck for maximum tone and sustain. It features a rosewood fingerboard and an authentic gold B70 licensed Bigsby® vibrato for even more sonic versatility. The vintage voice of this ‘Kat comes from a pair of Epiphone "dog ear" P- 90 Classic pickups specifically designed by Epiphone.
Other appointments include the historic metal Epiphone name “badge” on the headstock as well as a unique control configuration of 1-bridge volume, 1-neck volume, 1-master tone and 1-master volume. These controls are powered by Epiphone’s full-size 1” 500K potentiometers and matched with Epiphone’s superior all-metal toggle switch and heavy-duty output jack.
The Wildkat Royale also features premium 16:1 Grover® machine heads for superior tuning stability. All of this great design comes together with fabulous vintage semi-hollow tone and great sustain plus, being slightly larger than a Les Paul and smaller than an ES-335 size, it's lightweight and really comfortable to play!
