Outclasses other hollowbody guitars in its price range.

The Epiphone Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Royale Electric Guitar that outclasses other hollow-body guitars in its price range! World famous for making some of the best and most innovative hollow-body guitars, Epiphone conjures up some of it's 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! Case sold separately.

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 sophisticated series/parallel electronic switching package. 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.

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, 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 gold Grover tuners and a multi-bound, 20-fret rosewood fingerboard with block inlays. 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 Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Royale today.

            This guitar really looks cool! It plays nice,sounds nice and is set up decently right out of the box.
            The headstck is a tad heavy though and the fit and finish where the neck meets the body leaves a little bit to be desired on mine.
            All and all a good guitar for the price.

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Royale Electric Guitar:

            I stained the fretboard black ebony which makes it even more beautiful that the rosewood which looked drab to me and took away some of the pizzaz and added a gold pickguard which enhanced the look even more. I sometimes get string buzz and have to roll the particular saddle under the string to get it to stop, but this is occassional and I can fix it quickly. I shouldn't have to mess with it though... hence only 4 stars.
            Overall, great guitar. I use it all the time in performance and recording. It stays suprisingly in tune better than many other guitars withn bigsbys which is a common issue and this bigsby is sensitive and easy to use.
            I love it. Great price!

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Royale Electric Guitar:

            Great overall sound, look and quality. Just be gentle with her.
            Love the Bigsby, surprisingly ergonomic. Series, parallel switching on the pick-ups is not a big difference in the overall sound.
            The pearl finish is so classy, better than I expected, Gold sparkle bindings...very Falconesque.
            This guitar can't take agressive playing though, without knocking the strings from the saddles.
            It's a fraction of the price of the "White Falcon" that it is undoubtedly, patterned after.

            Solid Guitar

            By JR-iXNnX

            from North Brunswick, N.J.

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Royale Electric Guitar:

            I would definitely recommend.
            Excellent tonal varieties with pickups (despite not being that hot), especially when using Series / Parallel switching.
            It seems like more care was taken with build and set up having come out of their Custom Shop in Indonesia (not always the case with Chinese builds).
            I got this for a great deal. I think it's still a good deal at regular pricing as well.

            Great Guitar and even better buy

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Emperor Swingster Royale Electric Guitar:

            Awesome
            I've been playing this guitar non stop all week and just love it. When I recieved the guitar it had some really crappy strings on it and the fretboard sucked all the oils out of my hands, so I removed the strings and conditioned the fretboard and replaced the strings, lowered the action and it's just awesome now. The pick ups are suprisingly vibrant and the series/parallel feature puts it above a lot guitars that cost 6x what this one cost. I own 46 guitars and this one is amoung the best of them. The emperor is built solid and looks a lot like a Gretsch White Falcon. Check one out.
            It'll be around for a long time.
            Can't beat it.
