Product Description

The Swingster electric guitar with innovations from Epiphone will make you swing Like a pro! Starting with the same body and neck as used on the Epiphone 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. At the heart of the guitar are Epiphone's SwingBucker pickups and a series/parallel electronics switching package that outperforms all others in it's 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.

Series/Parallel Switching
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. Of course, any swinging machine needs a vibrato and the Swingster is no exception featuring a Bigsby Licensed B30 with original style wire handle as preferred by Certified Guitar Player and legend, Chet Atkins.

Plus, Epiphone has included a pinned tune-o-matic bridge with rosewood base for smooth operation and accurate return to pitch which is preferred when using a vibrato.

Loads of Bling
Topping it all off are Epiphone's trademark, multi-bound headstock with the classic mother-of-pearl vine inlay, premium Grover tuners and a multi-bound, 20 fret Pau Ferro fingerboard with block inlay. Gorgeous! And Epiphone stands behind every guitar they make with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 24/7/365 Customer Service. If you're ready for a professional guitar with unique features and a killer price tag, swing into a new Emperor Swingster today. Can you dig it? Oh yeah!

What is your opinion of this product?
The finish isn't as nice as my other 2 Epi's; there are some runs in the finish, the binding in the f-holes is uneven, and the frets are pretty rough, even after going over them with an 8000-grit Stewmac fret eraser. But it sounds & plays very nice, the fretboard & body binding looks really nice, and the headstock inlay is beautiful. When I purchased it, AMS' ad read that it has a roller bridge; not true, it's a standard Tunematic, but still keeps the tuning fairly stable using the Bigsby, which has a softer spring than my Wildkat. Allparts has a drop-in roller bridge for $25 plus shipping, which is the only mod I plan to make. The p-ups sound nice--as single coils, very chimey, and as humbuckers, can get nice & fat; they're wired backwards...in for single coil & out for humbucker. It also came with an LP-style transparent pick guard, but as the guitar is not pre-drilled for it, it won't go on; I think it would clutter up its clean & classy looks.

What is your opinion of this product?
I love the Swingster,but this guitar (I know, it was a scratch and dent, but come on)was not remotely close to being set up and pickguard parts are missing. I understand it has been unpacked before but send me all the pieces. I have bought scratch and dent from this company before and they have always been excellent. Now I have to find someplace to order pickguard parts and wait for them before I can use this guitar. Not to mention the setup and an immediate string change.
