by Dave Belaire from Brooklyn, MichiganThe Emperor II has been a wish-come-true for me. The guitar is more attractive in person than I thought it would be! It plays VERY well, too. The 'jazz box' design and quality is nothing short of amaz... read more [+]ing, especially when you factor in the price point of this guitar. I had considered saving up for a Gibson like the ES-175, but the cost was way too high for me. The Emperor II appears to have the same build quality, although I know that the electronics aren't as good. But that can be taken care of if I decide to upgrade them. Still, as it stands I have NO plans to do anything but enjoy playing this and leaving it completely stock. close [-]

I Played it and Loved It at First Sight and Sound
by Adam Propper from Westport, CTIt was love at first sight and sound for me. I went in to buy a set of strings for my LP 1960 VOS and left with a Emperor II. It just had such a great whole body tone and I loved the feel of the neck ... read more [+]and quality of the sound. This guitar is priced right, too. I had an Epiphone ES 335 that I traded in 2 years ago. I didn't like the quality. It wouldn't hold it's tune. I loved the tone but was just disappointed. The Emperor won me back. The Vintage Sunburst is beautiful. It fits my hand and body comfortably and the sound through my Black Star amp. I agree that they could have shaved the frets a bit more for my taste, but this is by no means a big issue for me. There is some feedback issues but that goes with the territory for a hollow jazz box. It is fun to play with or without my amp - just a great addition to my collection. close [-]

ONE GREAT JAZZ BOX
by Steve O from Pleasant Grove, UT USAAbsolutely love this guitar! Very, very warm jazz tone, but can be fun for rockabilly style or rock on the bridge pickup.

Plays like an acoustic guitar, like you've stepped back in time about 70 years. Only complaint, the pickguard rattles a bit. Awesome, get one, you won't regret it! close [-]
