The Epiphone Kat

Epiphone "Kat" guitars have long been amongst the company's most popular for many years, with each new incarnation over the decades continuing the tradition proudly.

These awesome guitars combine the big tone and resonance of an ES-style archtop, with the playability and smaller, thinline design of a solid body to great effect.

ProBucker Pickups

Ever since their introduction onto the market, Epiphone Probucker pickups have become some of the most talked about in the industry.

These pickups are crafted using the same materials that Gibson use at their Kalamazoo factory - the birthplace of the legendary PAF - and produce the kind of vintage tone usually associated with much more expensive models.

For this guitar, Epiphone have opted to use a set of FB720 Mini-ProBuckers, which deliver a gorgeous, vintage-style tone combined with modern reliability.

In addition to this, you get CTS electronics, with controls for Neck Volume and Tone, along with a Master Volume and Tone, giving you absolute mastery over your output.
