EPIPHONE EMPEROR SWINGSTAR ROYALE HOLLOWBODY, RW NECK, PEAR WHITE
The Emperor Swingster Royale is a dazzling version of our go-to rockabilly, jazz and rock hollowbody classic. It features gold Epiphone SwingBucker pickups with classic Alnico-V magnets, gold Grover machine heads, gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge, gold strap button, and best of all, a gold licensed B30 Bigsby with original style “wire” handle as preferred by “Certified Guitar Player” and legend Chet Atkins.
World famous for making some of the best and most innovative hollow-body guitars, Epiphone conjures up some of its past with the NEW Emperor Swingster Royale. Starting with the same body and neck as used on their Emperor-II guitar and made famous by the jazz master himself, Joe Pass, Epiphone swings into action and turns it into a serious twangin’, rock-a-billy slingin’, country flingin’ machine!
