Innovative design and a stunning solid Koa top, the Wildkat Koa features P-90 pickups for that boutique sound. Epiphone’s Ltd. Ed. Wildkat KOA brings a new twist to a true Epiphone original with a tone rich KOA top, mahogany body with f-holes, Epiphone P-90 Dogear Classic pickups, Bigsby® B70 Vibrato, and Grover® Rotomatic™ 18:1 ratio machine heads.
The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Wildkat KOA’s has a similar profile to renowned Epiphone archtops but is made smaller for easier travel. The Wildkat KOA features a solid KOA top and a mahogany body in a beautiful natural finish that’s computer-routed to create a perfectly tuned acoustic guitar-like body but with a center block just like the Sheraton II PRO and ES-335. The combination gives the Wildkat KOA that round archtop tone but with the incredible sustain of a solid body guitar.
The hand-fitted, glued-in solid mahogany neck has dot inlays, a 24.75” scale, and a 1960s style SlimTaperTM profile that’s easy on the hands for long hours of performing and rehearsing. The classic rosewood fingerboard has a 12” radius and a standard 1.68” nut. The Wildkat’s headstock features Epiphone’s early 60’s bullet badge, seen on rare models from the early 60s including the very first Casino in 1961. And it also comes with world famous Grover Rotomatic machine heads with an 18:1 ratio for fast and accurate tuning. An optional hard case is available.
