Epiphone Emperor Swingster 'Black Aged Gloss' Hollowbody Electric Guitar

1 only in stock

The Epiphone Emperor Swingster™ is a hollowbody electric guitar that excels in a wide range of genres, including jazz, blues, rockabilly, country and rock. It has a 5-ply layered maple body, mahogany neck with a comfortable and SlimTaper™ profile for excellent playability and a balanced tone. The two Epiphone SwingBucker™ pickups each have a dedicated volume and tone control as well as push/pull switches to provide series/parallel switching - so you'll never run out of different tone options.

Aesthetically, it's a stunning guitar, with an Indian laurel fretboard with block inlays, and the intricate Tree of Life inlays on the large Clipped Dove Wing headstock. Notably, it also has the LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ bridge mounted on a pinned wooden base so it won't move out of place when you use the Bigsby® vibrato, while the wire handle is both stylish and great for handling those sonic dives. Lastly, the nickel hardware and the Delta Metallic Blue finish give the guitar an unmistakeable presence both on the stage and to the ears.
