From Our Research Team:
A Semi-hollow with AttitudeThe Wildkat may not wear its snarl on its sleeve like its brother the Flame Kat, but one listen and you'll hear the family resemblance immediately. The Wildkat boasts a semi-hollowbody that's big enough for that classic stinging tone but small enough to dance with. The vibrato bar on this baby isn't just an accessory - it's an essential! The sound? It can purr one minute, then turn mean and nasty on a whim, courtesy of two Alnico V P-90s. Other features include vintage Epiphone logo, vintage chrome VibraTone tailpiece, and more!

A Friggin' Bargain!
by Samuel Claiborne from New York StateIf someone handed you this guitar with a Gibson or Gretsch logo on it, you'd be willing to pay $1200.00 for it - no kidding! Out of the box, action's a tiny bit high, but plays fine. Quality is top-no... read more [+]tch. Epiphone is really amazing me a set neck thin-line that could go from Foo Fighters to Stray Cats to Pat martino - just amazing. The pups are a little thicker than classic p-90s - almost half way between single coil and humbucker sound. I cranked it on my Fender Twin and lord have mercy it rocked! Sang! The controls: separate volume for each pup, + master volume + master tone give you lots of tonal variety. The only other guitar with a similar setup (though not master volume) that I've played is a Godin Radiator, and with both Axes, I find this a very versatile set of controls.

I will probably replace the nut with bone or tusq, get a pro set up, and if nut sauce doesn't do it, I may even get a roller bridge - because it's not rock solid in terms of tuning stability - but a Bigsby is not a dive bomber, after all.
For the money, this thing is incredible. Unlike so many cheap guitars, the electronics on this sound great. The only things you might want to change are those I mentioned above.
I like the smallish body size, and the almost Les Paul thickness.
It is a **** sexy guitar to look at too. close [-]

Amazed at this price point
by Michael Sole from United StatesI bought this guitar cause I thought it was really nice looking. Plus I wanted a semi-hollow body with this style and I am a sucker for Bigsby's.

I also read online others that replaced... read more [+] the tuners and pickups. When I got it, I was truly blown away by how it looked. I was disappointed with how it stayed in tune and it's tone.
I spoke with sweetwater tech support and they suggested some Nut Sauce. Not sure if that really did anything but I gave the strings a REAL good stretching in and now, I have no tuning problems at all. Those are Grover tuners so they are pretty good.
As for the tone, I really how to dial up my rig much different to get the right sound out of it but I have a pretty good rock-a-billy tone now (although my chicken picking has much to be desired).
The guitar was always very playable, the notes would fret nice and it feels comfortable to strum and pick. I find raking very easy on this ax.
I guess it's true, you can't believe everything you read on the internet. This guitar is put together right and of course, sweetwater rocked at sales and service. I feel like I got an amazing deal (especially if you look at something like an ES-335). close [-]
