Dual Epiphone ProBucker mini humbuckers, 3-way Epiphone toggle switch

Semi-hollow 5-ply Maple/Poplar Construction
With its semi-hollow construction, the Epiphone Uptown Kat ES provides great acoustic projection as a result of its 5-ply maple/poplar body. The spruce centerblock also enables long-lasting sustain and resists feedback. Its 5-ply binding beautifully outlines the body and its bold metallic finish will make this guitar a head-turner on stage.
Slim Mahogany Neck
With its sleek and snappy Slim Taper C mahogany neck, the Uptown Kat is perfect for modern players looking to take their playing to new heights. As part of the Epiphone Original Collection, the Uptown Kat ES pays tribute to Epiphone's storied past. Its ebony fretboard features classic block inlays.
Epiphone ProBucker Mini Humbuckers
The Uptown Kat ES is equipped with a pair of Epiphone ProBucker mini humbuckers—the same ProBuckers that Joe Bonamassa selected for his signature Epiphone Firebird. These mini-ProBuckers offer a transparent and crisp output with a warm low end. With their incredible touch sensitivity, these mini-ProBuckers amplify the sound of the Uptown Kat, making it a great instrument for players who prefer roots-rock, rockabilly flash, British-style blues and more.
Hardware on the Epiphone Uptown Kat is dressed with a classic and classy plating that pops against the finish, including the trapeze-style bridge, LockTone tune-o-matic tailpiece and Grover Rotomatic tuners. The Grover Rotomatic tuners have an 18:1 ratio, which helps to ensure precise tuning stability.
Additional features of the Epiphone Uptown Kat ES include a rich and resonant Graph Tech nut and the headstock emblazoned with the historic Epiphone badge. For players looking to add a semi-hollowbody to their arsenal of electric guitars, the Epiphone Uptown Kat ES is a solid choice.
