There's nothing cooler than wielding a limited edition axe like the Epiphone Limited Edition Wildkat Deluxe Electric Guitar. Now you don't have to be a rock star to own one. Each month of 2005 will see the release of a different, unique guitar that will only be made in limited numbers. While based on legendary past models, each instrument will be customized with special finishes, hardware, pickups, and other choice trimmings to make them genuine collectibles.
The Limited Edition Wildkat has the same traditional F-hole archtop design as the popular Epiphone Wildkat series, but with a gorgeous, customized finish. The mahogany body has a laminated maple top, and the hard maple neck is topped with a rosewood fretboard. The Bigsby trem adds to its classy appearance and the two alnico pickups crank out monster tone.

My wife bought this guitar for me for Christmas. I have the white/gold one. It is truly a beautiful guitar. A guy at a local music shop thought I paid $1500 for it. For all it's beauty the quality is average. Nothing to rave about. There is a lot of pick-up noise. The pick-up switch fell off after I opened the box. The input jack won't stay tight. No major problems and the sound is good (not awsome). I will keep this guitar because it looks so good. I plan to buy a Fender Player's Addition later this year to play in my band.
This guitar feeds back like nothing else, and it's not a nice feedback, it's a shrill screeech and it makes your eardrums want to explode. It's looks pretty damn sexy and plays nice too, the bigsby is kind of bulky but is nice too, but the feedback just takes it all down
Simply put this guitar is a thing of beauty. I've played some of the best semi hollow body guitars around and for It's price the Epiphone limited edition WildKat deluxe is one of the best deals around. Aside from the feedback this guitar emmits It's amazing. It's great for jazz, blues, or classic rock. with all the beauty of a Gretsch and a great unique sound this guitar is definitely worth buying.
Just got my new Epi Wildkat and I can't believe how nice this guitar is! It looks beautiful and sounds even better. The metallic red finish is so bright I swear it practically glows in the dark. It's set up perfectly. The strings are so close to the fretboard that it's the easiest of my 11 guitars to play. Plugged in, it's a monster. I can get any tone I want (through a Behringer digital effects amp) from mellow jazz to snarling rock distortion. My main axe is a Gibson ES355 and, sad to say, it might be accumulating some dust for awhile. Rock on Epiphone!
I bought a Turqouise model a few years ago and that one sucked. Right now I currently own two, a Chrome Red and a Antique yellow finnish. The red one is new and the yellow one was one of the first since it has an Epiphone E on the trem instead of Bigsby. I originally bought them to be a cheap gretsch copy. Now I love them more then any Gretsch I have ever played. The small body is nice and if you are like me then replacing the knobs is a must (I suggest Tele style knobs. Great guitar, nails rockabilly and psychobilly sounds and also gives you a Social Distortion style tone.
Iwas interested in finding a hollow body thin-line. And this baby was the ticket. It not only plays well, but it is beautiful. Igot the blonde version. Once again Epiphone maintains the quality I've enjoyed over may years. High-end features and look's for the price.
I think I'm going to return it. I'm very disappointed in the sound quality. I've tried playing it with different amps and amp modelers and it always sounds flat. Sounds like a tin can. I can get a full, rich sound out of it. Maybe it has very cheap pick ups ??? I don't know.It's a shame because I like the guitar for how it looks and feels but that's what I get for buying a guitar without playing it first. Looks aren't everything.
I liked the white finish and gold hardware enough to jump at this one, though the P-90's were the clincher. This is a big-looking stage guitar, with great tone and playability to match. It sounds more like a jazz box than a Les Paul, but the P-90's overdrive nicely for a retro sound. The Bigsby works well, and looks great! "Back in the USSR" and "Bad Moon Rising" fairly leap out of this axe!
I bought this guitar a few monthes ago and i really think it could be a lot better. The guitar has an uncontrollable feedback that can not be stopped after using a noise suppressor and different distortions apart from the amps'. It is the first hollowbody I have owned, but still it doesn't seem to me like the fretboard has been made to very easily playable circumstances. The bottom part of the guitar makes it very hard to play higher frets. The guitar, when playing metal, sounds very weak. I think there are much better hollow-body guitars out there.
