A Semi-hollow with Uptown Sensibilities

The Epiphone Wildkat Royale semi-hollowbody electric guitar exudes attitude. Boasting a semi-hollowbody that's not much bigger than a Les Paul, this axe dishes out punchy, stinging tone that's ideal in a wide range of musical settings. This baby can purr one minute, then turn mean and nasty on a whim, courtesy of two P-90 Dogear Classic pickups. Other features include gold hardware and a Bigsby B70 vibrato tailpiece. If you've got a rockabilly streak running through you (or even if you don't), the Epiphone Wildkat Royale just might be your axe.

If an archtop and a solidbody hooked up...

Epiphone has answered the big what-if: If an archtop and a solidbody got together and had offspring, they'd be the Wildkat Royale. Little bigger than a Les Paul (but tons lighter) - and with far livelier tone - the Wildkat Royale is for guitarists who are marching to their own drummer. Both in sound and in looks, the Royale will help you stand out from the crowd.

Epiphone's semi-hollowbody guitars

Epiphone semi-hollowbody guitars have given players affordable alternatives to their pricier cousins for decades. A longtime fan favorite, the Epi 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 Epiphone's semi-hollowbody guitar a perennial classic. The Epiphone Wildkat Royale keeps the tradition alive and well.

Epiphone quality

Since Epiphone's founding in 1873, they've produced innumerous iconic instruments. From long before the the British Invasion of the early 1960's, to metal, punk, thrash, grunge, and what have you, the Epi logo has stood for quality and value. Epiphone backs up their products with their Limited Lifetime Warranty and parent company Gibson's 24/7/365 day customer service, so you can rest assured that your Epiphone Wildkat Royale semi-hollowbody electric guitar will give you a lifetime of tasty tone and playing enjoyment.

Absolute STEAL!!!!

Absolutely the best guitar on the market for this price. It looks, and plays like a guitar that costs three times as much. Quality parts, looks, and tone. You will not be let down by this excellent piece of equipment.

Awesome

I have been saving money for a nice guitar that would last. This guitar is better that any guitar I have ever owned. Now there might be better guitars that are like $5,000 but for the price an amazing guitar.

A Must Own Guitar

This is one awesome guitar. The finish is immaculate, the action and intonation are superb. I'd place my Wildkat Royale against any guitar at twice the price.

Great looking/sounding Guitar

Great looking guitar and sounds great. Tuning issues are easily fixed with a "Biggs kid" stablizer. Sweetwater customer service is 5* rated

Definitely My Kind of Guitar

I was browsing the Sweetwater site looking for an electric guitar that was more "me" than so many others I've seen and tried. By accident I ran across this Epiphone Wildkat Royale. My search had ended. As a rock n' roller from way back, I knew I had to have one of these beauties. Between Sweetwater's amazing service and this amazing guitar, I was beyond delighted. I mean, this Wildkat is a honey, period! And Sweetwater, you're the best.
Music background: Singer-songwriter-performer since the late sixties. Rock n' roller since early sixties. Not playing out like I used to, but love rocking out on a great guitar, acoustic or electric.
