Product Description


Epiphone Emperor Swingster - Wine Red

The Emperor Swingster features Epiphone SwingBucker pickups with classic Alnico-V magnets, Grover machine heads, a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge, and best of all, a licensed B30 Bigsby with original style wire handle as preferred by 'Certified Guitar Player' and legend Chet Atkins.

World famous for making some of the best and most innovative hollow-body guitars, Epiphone conjures up some of its past with the Emperor Swingster. Starting with the same body and neck as used on their Emperor-II guitar and made famous by the jazz master himself, Joe Pass, Epiphone swings into action and turns it into a serious twangin', rock-a-billy slingin', country flingin' machine!

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.

Series/Parallel Switching
At the heart of the guitar are Epiphone's SwingBucker pickups and a series/parallel electronics switching package that outperforms all others in its 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. 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.

Loads of Bling
Of course, any swinging machine needs a vibrato and the Swingster is no exception featuring a Bigsby Licensed B30 with original style wire handle, a favourite of legends like Chet Atkins and Merle Travis.

Topping it all off are Epiphone's trademark, multi-bound headstock with the classic pearloid vine inlay, premium Grover 14:1 tuners and a multi-bound, 20 fret rosewood fingerboard with block inlay. Gorgeous!

Unlike some, Epiphone spares no expense by adding a pinned tune-o-matic bridge for smooth operation and accurate return to pitch that is preferred when using a vibrato.
