Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor-II PRO, Vintage Natural
The Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor-II PRO is the signature guitar of one of Jazz's most prolific and groundbreaking electric guitarists. The is a true archtop guitar, with hand-scalloped bracing and sound post, that's great for jazz. But it's more versatile than that description might suggest. Epiphone have given it their critically acclaimed new ProBucker pickups, with coil-taps, meaning it's great for getting a little heavier styles too. Plus it also has the new Graphtech NuBone XL nut to help keep everything in tune during big bends.
During his long career, Joe Pass made use of his advanced harmonic knowledge and seemingly bottomless well of melodic ideas. These made him the premier accompanist for some of the top performers in the world of jazz including Les McCaan, Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker, Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Milt Jackson.
The Joe Pass Emperor II PRO is Epiphone's tribute to Joe, who was a great inspiration to many musicians, from both within and without the jazz sphere, and a friend to Epiphone and guitarists throughout the world.
