The Epiphone Emperor Swingster truly makes you swing Like a Pro! Epiphone have always been known for making some of the best and most innovative hollow-body and semi-acoustic guitars, and with the Emperor Swingster Epiphone conjures up some of its historic past. This guitar turns a former Epiphone design into a new, twangin', rock-a-billy slingin', country flingin' machine! 

It has a hand-scalloped arched Spruce top with laminated Maple body and Hard Maple neck. At the core of this guitar are Epiphone's new SwingBucker pick-ups, with a series/parallel switching harness that's totally class-leading. These pick-up feature old-school AlNiCo-V magnets with overwound coils and enamel wire, and with the switching system they can go anywhere from single-coil quack, to warm and chunky humbucker.

As you might expect, the Swingster includes a Bigsby, in this case a Bigsby Licensed B30 with "wire" handle. The kind of "handle" preferred by the CGP himself, Chet Atkins. But that's not the end of is... Epiphone's also thought to add a pinned tune-o-matic bridge with roller saddles for smooth operation, so this a trem that ready and available for judicious use without that fear of everything going pear-shaped...

Epiphone's trademark, multi-bound headstock with classic mother-of-pearl "vine" inlay, Grover tuners and a multi-bound, 20 fret Rosewood fingerboard with block inlays round out the package.

Can you dig the Emperor Swingster?? Oh yeah!
