Epiphone Emperor Swingster, Delta Blue Metallic
The Emperor Swingster is a hollow body guitar that’s great for playing various genres of music, whether it’s rockabilly, jazz, blues, early rock ‘n’ roll, country, and more… It has a layered maple body which delivers more acoustic-like qualities as well as more definition, and a mahogany SlimTaper neck making it more comfortable to play and some more mid-range warmth. It’s topped with a 22-fret Indian laurel fretboard for extra resonance. It also has a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge on a pinned wooden base for increased tuning stability, and a licensed Bigsby vibrato tailpiece with a wire handle, great for getting those subtle, slow bends with little force.
For pickups, it has two medium-output Epiphone Swingbuckers each with their own volume and tone controls and a 3-way toggle switch, providing balanced lows, thick mids and singing highs, and are great for playing a range of styles of music.
To complete the Emperor Swingster are Grover rotomatic tuners, block inlays, nickel hardware, a silver pickguard with the Epiphone ‘E’ logo, black ‘top hat’ knobs with metal inserts to complement the finish, a striking ‘Tree of Life’ inlay on the headstock, 7-ply top and back binding to accentuate the cool Delta Blue Metallic finish.
