    Epiphone Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Electric Guitar Product Description

    Swing Like a Pro with the Epiphone Swingster! The Emperor Swingster is Epiphone's dazzling go-to rockabilly, jazz and rock hollowbody classic. It 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!

    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 Emperor Swingster today.

    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 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.

    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, a favorite of legends like Chet Atkins and Merle Travis.

    Loads of Bling

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

    But wait...there's MORE!

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