Semi-hollow Electric Guitar with 5-ply Maple/Poplar body, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard and 2 Mini-Probuckers
Taking inspiration from its classic predecessor, the WildKat, the Epiphone Uptown Kat ES is a great-sounding semi-hollowbody electric guitar in a good-looking package. The Uptown Kat is a member of Epiphone's Original Collection and features a true ES-style semi-hollowbody archtop with a pair of Epiphone ProBucker mini humbuckers—the same ones Joe Bonamassa chose for his signature Epiphone Firebird model. If you like a guitar with a classy look and feel, like we do at Musician's Friend, the Uptown Kat, with its maple neck, ebony fingerboard and Grover Rotomatic tuners, is for you.
Newly Designed Mini HumbuckersThe Epiphone Uptown Kat ES is equipped with a pair of newly designed Epiphone ProBucker mini humbuckers. Your sound will come alive with these mini humbuckers, which offer a crisp and transparent output. The Uptown Kat is also modeled with a control layout that will help you customize your sound.
Semi-hollow Construction with Fantastic ProjectionThe Epiphone Uptown Kat ES is constructed with a 5-ply maple/poplar body that will give you the kind of fantastic acoustic project you'd hope to get from a semi-hollow electric guitar. The classy 5-ply binding, paired with the bold metallic finish, will make this guitar an eye-catcher on stage.
Classic Epiphone LookWith all of its upgraded appointments, like new mini-ProBuckers, the Uptown Kat ES still boasts the classic feel you'd expect from Epiphone. Its Slim Taper rounded C-profile neck is sleek and speedy, perfect for the modern player, but its mahogany construction gives it a classic look and feel. The ebony fretboard is also adorned with classic block inlays, and the headstock is dressed with the historic Epiphone badge.
This is the Epiphone to get for Classic TonesWhile its mini-ProBuckers, semi-hollow construction and sleek neck are enough to get you to run and order the new Uptown Kat ES from Musician's Friend, there are more features to be excited about. It comes equipped with Grover Rotomatic turners with an 18:1 ratio to guarantee you'll always stay in tune. The Epiphone Uptown Kat ES also includes a rich and resonant Graph Tech nut, ebony fingerboard, trapeze-style bridge and LockTone tune-o-matic tailpiece.
