Take it from Sweetwater: the Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II PRO will add new dimensions to your music.
Epiphone ProBuckers deliver warm jazz tones and more
Epiphone’s Joe Pass Emperor II PRO is packing Epiphone ProBucker pickups, a 4-wire design with coil-tapping inspired by Gibson’s legendary BurstBuckers. ProBuckers conjure the sound of the original hand-wound PAF humbuckers designed by Seth Lover at Gibson’s Kalamazoo factory in the late 1950s. ProBuckers have all the same components under the hood as the original PAF and BurstBuckers, including Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola magnet wire, 18 percent nickel silver unit bases and covers, as well as pole screws, slugs, and bobbins built to original Gibson spec. You get a huge sounding pickup that delivers the subtle, unique characteristics of vintage humbuckers while being responsive to your pick attack and guitar volume controls.
Stunning good looks; amazing affordability
With its understated good looks, you might mistake the Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II PRO for a guitar that costs thousands. Happily, you’d be mistaken. From its bound pau ferro fingerboard and pearloid block inlays to its mock tortoise pickguard and gold hardware, the Joe Pass Emperor II PRO exudes an understated elegance. But his axe only looks (and sounds) expensive. It’s actually amazingly affordable.
