A no-frills version of the new generation archtop.
When the Epiphone Wildkat premiered in the early '90s, it introduced a new generation to historic Epiphone archtop style, which the House of Stathopoulo has been perfecting for nearly a century. Now the Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio nouveau classic is back with new colors and a streamlined look.
The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio features the timeless Wildkat profile made from mahogany with a flame maple top and classic Epiphone styled f-holes. The glued-in hard maple neck is hand-set and has a fast and comfortable 1960s SlimTaper D-profile with a 24.75 scale and a 12 radius.
The neck has a beautiful rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets. The truss rod cover (2-layer black and white) is matched to a classic '60s era œE logo for Epiphone. The Sloped Dovewing headstock, also an iconic style from the early '60s, has a vintage Epiphone metal badge. The body has simple but elegant single-layer Ivory colored binding as does the top, fingerboard and f-holes.
The Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio is powered by Epiphone designed Dogear Classic P-90 pickups, a favorite of Epi fans for decades. P-90 pickups are the world's best single coil pickups made from Alnico magnets with precise articulation for leads and rock n' roll growl for power chords and rhythm. Each pickup is activated via an Epiphone 3-way toggle switch for rhythm, lead, and a standard middle position for both pickups. Controls include a handy Master Volume, Master Tone, and individual volume controls for each pickup with Black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts.
Epiphone hardware is just as famous as its electronics and the Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio comes with a time-tested Epiphone LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Epiphone Stopbar tailpiece combined with Epiphone Premium Die-Cast machine heads. Epiphone Die-Cast machine heads feature a pro-level 14:1 tuning ratio for precise intonation and rock solid tuning. Each Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio is set up at the Epiphone factory with the world's finest strings from D'Addario in a 10-46 (light) gauge.
