    Construction

    youtube video thumbnail

    A five-ply maple and poplar combo is the choice of body wood, with two beautifully cut F-holes. Extravagant without being garish. The mahogany neck has been glued into the body for extra sturdiness.

    Its Slim Taper ‘C’ neck shape is modelled after the Gibson greats and is renowned for its comfort. On top is a 12” radius ebony fretboard, making for a classy, quality package in every department. Hardware appointments include a Graph Tech nut, LockTone ABR bridge and that trapeze tailpiece – an excellent balance between assured stability and class.

    Sound

    The Uptown Kat is equipped with two fiery Mini-Probucker FB720 pickups. These bad boys have everyone fooled with their indistinguishable vintage tone. The lows are warm, the sustain prolonged and brightness snappy.

    They incorporate the same alloy used by Gibson at their Kalamazoo factory – you know you’re getting the best in sound. Match them up with an airy clean tone or crunchier drive for outstanding results.

    Really nicely finished and playable. Had to cut the nut slots deeper. The pickups are really not great at all, but I expected that, and will swap out for Gibson or Duncan’s ...... and the quality of the guitar build will justify them. ......... will look at more Epiphones now.
