Epiphone Wildkat with Bigsby - Antique Natural

A Semi-hollow with Attitude

The 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!

Wildkat, Oh Yeah!

This review is about a guitar that more people should consider because it has it all! Semi hollow (almost hollow) mahogany body,P90 pickups, Bigsby Vibrato, Grover tuners, Quality looks and, build. I have two of these one Chicago Royale Blue and, Wine Red transparent and, they just blow me away. These come as close as you can get to a true hollow body except for a couple of places where it is solid under the bridge and, by the neck pickup, other than that it is hollow. I was looking for that something different in a guitar and, this is it! I've played these through a small 30w combo amp and, a Fender Twin Reverb and, the sound is Awesome!! I bought both sight unseen with no problem. I live in a very rural area so I have no choice but to do so. I have not been dissapointed in any way with these instruments. No modifications necessary, tune up, set the action, check the intonation and, neck relief and, get jammin'. Highly recommended!!!!

As good as it gets

Beautifully made, bookmatched veneer incredible. Sweetwater's gallery lets you choose the one for you and this was why I first decided to buy it here. The second, more important reason I would shop here again was the quality of the set-up and customer service. The guitar was in tune and ready to play out of the box. It was well-packed and delivery was fast. Guitar has great action and sounds rich and like a much more expensive instrument. Details in craftsmanship (finish, frets) were just about perfect. I am amazed at what you can buy these days for less than four hundred dollars. I'm getting the Night Hawk next. . . .

Smooooooth

I would not give this to just any guitar, But I was truly blown away at the sound and feel of this guitar,,,I seriously went into the store to debunk a freinds suggestion that my son buy one of these,,,but I walked out WITH one of my own instead......The P90's were amazing, this thing sounds much more expensive than it is,,,and there are seperate volumes for each as well as a master which makes this almost like a varitone except with more range,,,It sounds like a much larger semi-hollow, the back and sides are from the same block of Mahogony like the big boys with a Beautiful Flame top,,,,and the playability,,this thing plays like Butter......I thought that it had been set up but when I got my new one from the back and opened it,,,,,it was perfect,,,,it needed little tuning and the intonation was dead on,,,,I do wish that it did not have the Bigsby but since it's there I may even try some dive bombing,,,,

Best guitar for the price.

I purchased this guitar several months ago. It has exceptional clean tones and a very low end cut. It leaves a bit to be desired in the treble side of things even when the lead tone is selected. However it's mid range capabilities are amazing. It has a natural crunch when played clean that allows the user to not have to overdrive the amp or use a distortion effect. It does need tightened up when fresh out of the box, but once done stays in tune very well even when using the tremolo. The neck is fat and chords very nice, but not great for metal shredding. It is a very loud electric and I have issues when playing live switching between this and my solid body electrics because it is so much louder. I use this for all clean songs in our set list. If your a rhythm player looking for a solid piece at a great price look no further. If you want something to run the neck this is not the guitar for you. I get compliments on this guitar everywhere it goes.

One Kool Kat

I got to choose mine from SWEETWATER'S Guitar Gallery. Beautiful Maple Veneered top. I have large hands and this plays PERFECT. Great action and string bending.The tone is super VINTAGE, and with tweaking the controls through my Epiphone Blues Custom 30 all tube amp makes it a SUPER tone machine! Everyone who has seen it are very impressed with its appearance! Great tone for a super price!
