Classic Black with a Twist!Here's a real cool retro rocket! The Emperor Swingster Black Royale from Epiphone is based on the Emperor II (made famous by late jazz great Joe Pass). But where the Emperor II relied on elegance and grace, the Emperor Swingster Black Royale resides squarely on the rock side of the fence. The specially designed pickups are paired with cool push/pull and series/parallel switching, giving the Swingster Black Royale a ton of tonal options. Just to complete the vintage vibe, the Emperor Swingster Black Royale rocks a Bigbsy tailpiece, roller bridge, and hip block inlays. Ready to rock? Give the Emperor Swingster a shot - you won't regret it!
Epiphone semi-hollowbody guitars have given players affordable alternatives to their pricier cousins for decades. A longtime fan favorite, the Epiphone semi-hollowbody has been a key ingredient of Beatle jangle along with the effects-heavy modern rock of Silversun Pickups's Brian Aubert, to name just two. The combination of fat tones, strong sustain, and vintage vibe make the Epiphone semi-hollowbody guitar a perennial classic.
