Overview

Arguably one of the most prolific and inspirational Jazz guitarists in history, Joe Pass has become a legendary figure, recognised by Epiphone in the Emperor II Pro archtop series.

A true archtop classic that is a fitting tribute for a jazz great. Epiphone have taken extra care to deliver something special with a new Wine Red finish.

Embodying everything about the vintage tone, style and with modern appointments under the hood, the Emperor-II Pro captures the timeless tone of Joe's iconic sound for today's guitarist to explore. Fitted with new ProBucker pickups, each with coil-tapped electronics, the tonal possibilities are endless. Its easy to dial in vintage bell-like tone or really push the boundaries, all with a guitar that carries vintage style with its Wine Red finish.

A select spruce top and 'arched' body shape, with a single cutaway, define the bright, airy tone of the Emperor II Pro. A laminated flame maple body offers plenty of structural support and tone that develops gracefully over time as the guitar settles into its environment. It also features a hand-set 3-piece laminated hard Maple neck with a Rosewood fingerboard that has beautiful pearloid block inlays, 20 medium jumbo frets, and is topped off with the Epiphone-vintage style "tree of life" design seen on the best Epi archtops since the late 1930s.

During his long career, Joe Pass's advanced harmonic knowledge and seemingly endless well of melodic ideas made him the premier accompanist for the top singers and soloists in the world of jazz including Les McCaan, Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker, Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Milt Jackson. The new Joe Pass Emperor II PRO is a fitting tribute to Joe, who was a great inspiration and friend to Epiphone and guitarists throughout the world.
