Epiphone Emperor Swingster Hollowbody - Black Aged Gloss

The Epiphone Emperor Swingster™ is a highly impressive guitar suitable for a diverse range of musical genres such as jazz, blues, rockabilly, country, and rock. This guitar features a hollowbody design constructed with a 5-ply layered maple body. Its mahogany neck has a SlimTaper™ profile, providing a comfortable and fast-playing experience. The Indian laurel fretboard showcases block inlays, while the large Clipped Dove Wing headstock is adorned with mother of pearl Epiphone and Tree of Life inlays. The Grover® Rotomatic® tuning machines ensure precise tuning, and the guitar is equipped with two Epiphone SwingBucker™ pickups, each with its own dedicated volume and tone control. The volume controls also feature push/pull switches for series/parallel pickup switching, expanding the tonal possibilities. Additionally, the guitar offers a 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for further versatility. The LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ bridge is securely mounted on a pinned wooden base, preventing any movement when using the licensed Bigsby® vibrato with a wire handle.
