If you're looking for a guitar that combines the aesthetics of a classic Jazzbox, with the versatility and playability of a modern-day rock guitar, then we have just the thing for you!

The Welcome Return Of An Epiphone Classic

With the Epiphone Emperor Swingster, seen here in a stunning Black Aged Gloss finish, you get an excellent guitar that excels in a wide range of genres - from jazz and blues, to rockabily, country, and even rock!

Top Notch Construction

This hollowbody guitar is crafted with a 5-ply layered Maple body, and is equipped with a fast-playing Mahogany neck to make those long rehearsal and studio sessions.

This body is designed to deliver a big, resonant voice, whilst the block inlays and large Clipped Dove Wing headstock adds a touch of vintage Epiphone class into the mix.

Versatile Pickups

For the voice on the Emperor Swingster, Epiphone have equipped it with a pair of SwingBucker dual coil pickups.

These "toaster top" style pickups offer a rich, thick, and aggressive tone that's suitable for most musical styles - especially those where you can get down and dirty!

In addition to this, both Volume controls feature a Push/Pull function that will change the associated pickup from Series to Parallel, for when a bright and articulate approach is needed.

Top Notch Hardware

Bring all of this together, you'll find some of the finest hardware ever committed to an Epiphone guitar.

Featuring a set of Grover Rotomatic tuners, a LockTone TOM bridge, and licensed Bigsby vibrato tailpiece with a wire handle, this guitar offers superb levels of natural sustain and tuning stability.
