Product Description

The Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II Hollowbody Electric Guitar brings to life all the features preferred by guitar legend Joe Pass. The fully hollow body is made of a select Spruce top and Maple body for superb clarity and dynamics. Pearl block inlays and an Epiphone ‘tree of life’ design on the headstock gives the Emperor II great class. Alnico Classic humbuckers are featured per Joe’s request, offering rich dynamics and warmth when amplified.

Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II Hollowbody Electric Guitar Features

  • Inspired by Joe Pass favorite Epiphone
  • Fully hollow body design made of Spruce top and Maple body
  • Alnico Classic Humbuckers
  • Vintage style gold tailpiece and Grover machine heads
  • Tortoise shell style pickguard with historic metal ‘E’
Body
The Joe Pass Emperor II is slightly smaller than our historic archtops but bears many of the same, distinctive features of the Broadway model including a select Spruce top and maple body. The 24.75 inches scale hand-set maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard with beautiful mother of pearl block inlays topped off by the legendary Epiphone ‘tree of life’ design which is further set off by Grover 16:1 ratio gold tuners and a signature ‘Joe Pass’ truss rod cover.

Electronics
The ‘50s vintage style controls are spaced slightly farther apart than on Epiphone’s other archtop models and many players prefer the wider spacing. Per Joe’s request, the Emperor II is voiced by two Alnico Classic humbuckers that give the guitar an endless variety of colors and shades. The gold covered humbuckers are set off by a tortoise shell style pickguard with historic metal ‘E.’

Hardware
One of the most eye-catching features of the Joe Pass Emperor II is the gold vintage style scroll tailpiece along with a floating rosewood bridge. The Joe Pass Emperor II from Epiphone sounds great unplugged and at low volume and players who strive for horn like tones or who are searching to develop their own personal touch will find the Joe Pass Emperor II to be the perfect instrument.

Joe Pass
Joe Pass was known as the ‘president of bebop guitar.’ Raised near Jamestown, Pennsylvania, as a teenager Joe headed for New York City where his inventive, fluid lines, advanced harmonic knowledge, and seemingly endless well of melodic ideas were immediately recognized. Perhaps Pass’ best work was for Norman Granz’ Pablo label, based in Los Angeles. During his career, Joe recorded with a Who’s Who of jazz greats including Les McCaan, Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker, Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Milt Jackson.
