Epiphone Emperor Swingster Hollowbody Guitar w/Gig Bag - Sunrise Orange (2019)
Guitar is in great condition, having been very well taken care of by the original owner. It is setup well and currently strung with D'Addario flat wound strings. A high quality after market gig bag is included with the guitar. A pair of gold Schaller strap lock strap pins have been installed but the locks that go on the strap are not included.
Classic Construction with SwingBucker Pickups! With it's hand-scalloped arched Spruce top combined with a laminated arched-back Maple body and glued-in 3-piece Hard Maple neck, the Swingster has what it takes to satisfy any professional's demand for great tone. At the heart of the guitar are Epiphone's NEW SwingBucker(tm) pickups and a series/parallel electronics switching package that outperforms all others in it's class. Specially designed for the Swingster, the humbuckers offer no hum performance and feature classic Alnico-V magnets, enamel wire and over-wound coils for the perfect combination of warmth and bite.
Series/Parallel Switching. Two push/pull Tone controls allow you to change each pickup's output individually from parallel to series wiring creating a palette of useful sounds to tap into ranging from warm humbuckers to "quacky" single-coil type sounds and everything in-between. Of course, any swinging machine needs a vibrato and the Swingster is no exception featuring a Bigsby Licensed B30 with original style "wire" handle as preferred by the legendary, Chet Atkins. Then Epiphone adds a "pinned" tune-o-matic bridge as well.
