The Epiphone WildKat Guitar features a Bigsby Tremolo, Nice!

my soulmate guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I've had many guitars and my search is over for me this is the best guitar in the world. 1.the neck is the best feeling neck for me. 2.i like the wood maple in fron and mahogony back and sides i like the sound of mahogany. 3.it has a bigsby tail or tremolo thats my favorite kind. 4.the bridge i think it's called adjusto matic works well and is secure. 5.the p90 pickups these are truly the best pickups possible ,sparkle and agressive attitude but warm and freindly. 6.nice knobs and layed out cleverly.. 7.beautiful guitar nice wood colors. 8.very versatile from surf to rockabilly to rock to blues. 9.if i had a signature model it would be along these lines of guitars. 10.grover tuners,22 frets not 20 like gretsch and semi hollow so you can play louder. 11.what a great price for all this really is a bargain.

A Good Rock 'N Roll/ Blues/Bluesrocker/ Value
What is your opinion of this product?
When guitar first arrived, I was quite disappointed & was prepared to send it back as unplayable/unsatisfactory. It wouldn't stay in tune (fluctuated between "sharp" & "flat"), & quality control left something to be desired. Glue around neck/body joint was a bit sloppy, control knobs on crooked, metal nameplate on slightly crooked (gives her character). Also thought I saw blemishes in finish, especially around F holes, but it may have been eyes playing tricks on me in low light. Overall first impression? I knew that Epiphone could do better than this!
Fortunately, something was telling me not to write the guitar off. I decided to keep it. Glad I did! Along w/ a friend who's a good guitarist & trained luthier, we went to work setting her up. As the flaws were corrected she came alive! I started seeing & hearing her potential! She's probably passable as a Jazz guitar, but I feel her strong hand is hard rockin' R 'N R, R & B, Blues, & Bluesrock. Was my first single coil unit, & P90's can be a bit noisy.
Guitar has a small, but solid, slightly heavy feel to her, neck feels a bit chunky, substantial, but very playable. Depending on music style, you may have to move fast, but all knobs/controls are in easy reach.
I'd say tones are bright/snappy w/ P90's ranging from mellow to hot! Highs a bit thin as you move up the scale depending on guitar & amp settings. As advertised, she will go from a kitten like "purr" to a gritty "growl" w/ flip of a switch! I love it!
No complaints here. Nicely finished & front/back grain patterns are beautiful. Same for Rosewood fingerboard.
At the time Antique/Natural Wildkats were going for $350 & another $100 for hardshell case. I own/play several different guitar make/models & have played Epi's for almost 30 years now. I've never been disappointed w/one. Like all guitars they have their own "quirks," but they give you a lot of instrument for the money. A great buy once I got the "kinks" ironed out of it. Depending on what you're playing, highly recommended.
Action was a bit higher than I like, but was easily adjusted. Prefer it slightly low. She still has tendency to go slightly flat/sharp at times, but stays in tune for the most part. I seldom use the Bigsby. Tune-o-matic bridge may not be the best type for these guitars. Seriously considering replacing it w/ a "roller" type bridge if I find one that fits.

Beautiful Guitar Worth the Money!
What is your opinion of this product?
Well..out of the box I noticed that the strings were a mile high on the fret board. The action was horrible, like set up for lap steel or something..Also, there was some looseness in the hardware on the string posts..this stuff isn't a big deal. I took it to a guitar tech which I do when buying any guitar regardless of price and let me tell you..this thing plays great! The tuning issues that I read about on the reviews are not an issue with my guitar. I stretch the strings two or three times when putting on new and lube the nut (I know that sounds weird) but it stays in tune. T
I play whatever..Buddy Holly, Beatles, old country, Oasis etc..It sounds great. I don't get all crazy on the Bigsby..I use it for a little wobble/wiggle here and there. The quality is good and solid..I could go on and on but to make a long story short..It's just a cool guitar that's priced right.
The controls are great. The Master Volume is perfect. Big frets but some were uneven but that's not a big deal..Just needs a total set up. All I can say is that it plays like it looks ..which made me pretty F-in happy!
I'm not a tone snob..all my guitars sound completely different so I just tweak them to my liking ..but let me tell you brother..this Wildkat is F-ing fun to play! The P-90's sound as they should..
Perfect for $349
When you buy such a nice stylish semi-hollow guitar with a Bigsby for $349.00 you kind of half to wonder how much it costs to be built the thing. Then how much profit is made by the vendor? Anyway, I'm pretty happy with it
Sucked..Strings Super Duper high almost unplayable but that's ok and expected..just take to a pro and it will sound as good as any Gibson

Wow !
What is your opinion of this product?
Very nice guitar.
I bought this as a dent and scratch. I could not find any dents or scratches. The handle on the Bigsby was binding. I replaced the strings with DR nickel blues medium and greased the Bigsby handle. I also removed the spring washers to lower the handle.
The neck feels good in my hand. The action was low out of the box, the intonation was right on.
Sounds like P90's Dark and warm. good range if you know how to work 'em.
Finish is beautiful.
I was looking for an inexpensive guitar with a Bigsby. I saw this as a scratch and dent for $259. Honestly I expected a hunk of junk, but I only wanted it for a couple songs. Quite surprised with how nice this thing is.
The action and set up was very good. the Bigsby issue may be why it was so cheap. Played it through several amps good sound. easy neck.

Product comparable to price
What is your opinion of this product?
Nice Grover tuners; good Bigsby trem arm; neck feels good - semi-beefy; somewhat heavy axe.
Quality is ok I guess. This was a "scratch/dent" item; the two flaws I found were: paint/varnish at neck heel very thick and sloppy; screws holding pickup to body were loose and when I removed pickups, found that screw holes were cracked so I had to repair them, re-drill, and re-install pickups.
Heavy axe for semi-hollow body; neck semi-chunky (not fat as late 50's Gibson, but fatter than some of the 60's slim-tapers I've played); feels good.
Tone is somewhat muddy; pickups are soldered to their housing and rattle against top of guitar; I put some rubber bumpers under them; helped somewhat; guitar fine if just playing lots of distortion, also nice with reverb. Really had to crank treble on amp to get treble sound.
Paint/stain poor at neck heel; could have sanded the f-holes trim better, but looks better than some of the high-end Gibsons I've owned.
Probably the non- scratch/dent model would be a good buy.
Action ok out of box; at first fret 0.016", feels good; at fret 12 - 5/64 on e; 6/64 on E; I lowered each 1/64. now feels good.
