Epiphone Emperor Swingster Hollowbody Electric Guitar - Black Aged Gloss

This is a brand new 7.8 lb 2021 Epiphone Emperor Swingster hollow body electric guitar that has a full factory warranty and is located at our Rapid City, SD showroom. The Epiphone Emperor Swingster™ is a way-cool guitar that excels in a wide range of genres, including jazz, blues, rockabilly, country, and rock. This hollowbody has a 5-ply layered maple body, mahogany neck with a comfortable and fast-playing SlimTaper™ profile, Indian laurel fretboard with block inlays, mother of pearl Epiphone and Tree of Life inlays on the large Clipped Dove Wing headstock, Grover® Rotomatic® tuning machines, and two Epiphone SwingBucker™ pickups, each with a dedicated volume and tone control. Push/pull switches are built into each volume control to provide series/parallel switching for the pickups, and along with the 3-way toggle pickup selector switch, give you a broad selection of tonal options. The LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ bridge is mounted on a pinned wooden base so it won't move out of place when you use the licensed Bigsby® vibrato with wire handle. Available in Forest Green Metallic with gold hardware, or Black Aged Gloss and Delta Blue Metallic finishes with nickel hardware.
