Epiphone Emperor Swingster Electric Guitar

The Epiphone Emperor Swingster hollowbody electric guitar injects twangy vintage character into a classic design! Epiphone based the Emperor Swingster around the body and neck of the venerable Emperor-II (made famous by jazz master Joe Pass), added a dedicated pair of humbucking pickups, and installed a parallel/series wiring scheme that gives you a range of outstanding tones from rich and smoky to defined and snappy! The Tune-o-matic bridge/vintage-style tremolo combo gives you amazingly stable performance. And this guitar doesn't just sound amazing; you get plenty of eye-catching appointments onboard the Emperor Swingster!

Epiphone Emperor Swingster Hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Specially designed pickups
  • Series/Parallel switching, vintage-style trem
  • This Swingster brings the visual bling
Specially designed pickups

At the heart of the Swingster are Epiphone's SwingBucker pickups. Specially designed for the Swingster, these humbuckers offer excellent no-hum performance and feature classic Alnico V magnets, enamel wire, and overwound coils for the perfect combination of warmth and bite.

Series/Parallel switching, vintage-style trem

Two push/pull tone controls allow you to change each pickup's output individually from parallel to series wiring and create a palette of useful sounds. Go from warm humbucker tones to "quacky" single-coil-type sounds and everything in-between. Of course, any swinging machine needs a vibrato ??? and the Swingster is no exception! The Swingster includes a Bigsby licensed B30 with original style wire handle as preferred by guitar legend Chet Atkins.

This Swingster brings the visual bling

Epiphone tops off the great-playing, awesome-sounding Swingster with visual flair. You get a multi-bound headstock with the classic mother-of-pearl vine inlay, premium Grover tuners, and a multi-bound, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with block inlays. If you're ready for a professional guitar with unique features and a killer price tag, swing into a new Emperor Swingster today!
