Description

Details

The Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II Pro Archtop electric guitar in a beautiful vintage sunburst is a superb guitar inspired by the man himself. Exquisite attention to detail ensures that Jazz enthusiasts everywhere will find this instrument an absolute joy to play.

Pass' legacy doesn’t just lie in the awesome fretwork laid down during recordings with some of Jazz' biggest names - including Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker, and Oscar Peterson to name but a few -, but also for his dedication to music, and peerless inventiveness of his playing.

Consistent craftsmanship

When compared to Epiphone's earlier archtop models, the Joe Pass Emperor II Pro may be slightly smaller, but utilises the same laminated maple body with a select spruce top. The maple back and sides produces a sweetness that generates a natural resonance thanks to the archtop body shape.

The select spruce top rounds out the upper frequencies whilst softening the fat midrange warmth and the lightweight body is very comfortable to play.

The hand-set maple neck has a generous 24.75" scale length, with a SlimTaper "C" profile that enables a smooth and fast-playing style, perfect for executing intricate scales. Married to the neck is a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard that carries stunning mother-of-pearl block position inlays. The headstock bears the awesome Epiphone "Tree of Life" design, as well as a signature "Joe Pass" truss rod cover.

Complimentary pickups

In order to guarantee that the Emperor II Pro's tonal dexterity meets the requirements of Pass, Epiphone installed Burstbucker 2 and 3 pickups. The gold covered humbuckers are controlled using the individual volume and tone pots for each pickup, as well as a 3-way pickup selector switch for instant sound switching.

The neck pickups deliver smoky tones that are perfect for Jazz. Combining the characters of both pickups at the same time gives a wonderfully balanced output that is great for chunky Blues' licks. The bridge pickup puts greater emphasis on the bite and sizzle produced by the highs, great for country players too.

Superior hardware

The gold pickup covers are offset beautifully by the tortoiseshell-style pickguard with historic metal "E". String intonation is maintained via the ornate pairing of the floating rosewood bridge, and gold vintage-style scroll trapeze tailpiece. The gold Grover Rotomatic 18:1 gear ratio tuning machines firmly secure your tuning during performances, but when needed, adjustment is simple and incredibly precise.

The Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II Pro Archtop electric guitar is a brilliant example of the level of professional quality guitar that Epiphone can produce. Whether you're a relatively new player, or seasoned pro, the Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II Pro will delight players and audiences alike.
