This is a beautiful Natural Epiphone Emperor electric guitar. Produced in Korea by Samick, this Emperor II is consistent with the reputation of the Korean era of Epiphone production which offered high quality instruments elevated above the current Indonesian/Chinese factory output. With a high gloss Vintage Sunburst finish, spruce top, and maple back and sides, this guitar is tailor-made for Jazz. Loaded with the original pair of Alnico Classic humbuckers, the guitar delivers a range of smooth, warm tonalities. Naturally the bridge pickup has a bit more bite and sparkle and the neck pickup has more oomph and roundness.
