    Product Description

    The Epiphone Emperor Swingster is a superb hollowbody instrument that harks back to the golden era of electric guitar manufacturing in the mid-20th Century. Blending premium components with first-class style, this great-value instrument excels for a wide range of musical genres — including jazz, blues, rockabilly, country and rock.

    Faithfully maintaining many of the original Swingster's signature features — such as a Bigsby tailpiece, old-school block inlays, and a tasteful mother of pearl "Tree of Life" design on the large headstock — this reimagined Emperor Swingster has also been enhanced with a raft of modern refinements including Grover tuners, low-noise Epiphone SwingBucker pickups and a Graph Tech nut.

    Classic Construction

    The Emperor Swingster's body is crafted from strong layered Maple, which is used to form its top, back and sides. Giving the instrument plenty of vibrancy, definition and acoustic-like volume — you can expect airy, resonant tones with singing sustain.

    To add some mid-range warmth, the Swingster's body is joined with a Mahogany neck; topped with an Indian Laurel fingerboard for a silky touch under the fingers. The neck adheres to a contemporary 'SlimTaper' profile, which provides excellent comfort for players of all disciplines, while 22 medium jumbo frets offer a controllable feel for vibrato and string bends.

    Proprietary SwingBucker Pickups

    While the Swingster's unique hollowbody construction contributes massively to its broad tone, most of its scintillating sound can be attributed to its proprietary SwingBucker pickup pairing. Promising balanced lows, thick mids and chimey highs — these beautifully-voiced, medium-output humbuckers are adaptable for a range of different styles.

    Push/pull switches are built into each volume control too, to provide series/parallel switching for the pickups, along with the conventional 3-way toggle selector switch and independent tone knobs. All-in-all, these flexible electronics give you a wide selection of sonic options!

    Bigsby Tailpiece

    The Epiphone Emperor Swingster may be a relatively affordable instrument, but practically zero shortcuts have been taken when it comes to its hardware appointments. Sporting a licensed Bigsby vibrato, this gorgeous-looking tailpiece allows you to gently add warble to chords or lead lines, with the ergonomically-shaped wire handle perfectly fitting your hand for on-the-fly use.

    Other features include high-quality Grover Rotomatic machine heads, a tone-enhancing Graph Tech NuBone nut and a rock-solid LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge firmly pinned to a wooden base. You can therefore expect rock-solid tuning stability and decades of reliable use!
