Description

Details

The Epiphone Wildkat is a semi-hollow body electric guitar that you won't want to put down. Rocking a cool, vintage look with dreamy tones, the Wildkat is the perfect embodiment of forward-thinking Epiphone's ingenious guitar building skills.

Long before an electric version was made, Epiphone had a wealth of experience in acoustic archtop design, delivering instruments of exquisite beauty with tones that have been coveted by others ever since. However, it wasn't until that original design was married to an electric solid body that things started to take off.

The Wildkat is built from a solid mahogany back, with a bright-sounding maple top - a combination often used by Epiphone as it produces a solid mix of powerful mid to low-end with a crisp high end tone that cuts through beautifully. Whether you play funk, country, rockabilly, rock 'n' roll, hard rock, punk, and grunge, etc. the Wildkat's tonal response perfectly suits any style. The semi-hollow body gives the tonewoods superb sustain too, so you notes ring out even longer to give a fuller, more natural sound.

The maple neck is shaped to the SlimTaper "D" profile, robust yet surprisingly slender, which means you can effortlessly glide along it whilst you play. The 22-fret rosewood fingerboard is shaped to the classic Epiphone 12" radius, making string-bends a dream.

The P-90R Dogear Classic pickups in the neck and bridge position, really give the Wildkat that signature roar. Use your instinct to feel out your desired tone with the 3-way pickup selector switch; create blends of the pickups using the individual pickup volume switches, master tone and master volume switches and let your creativity loose. The response from this pair of pickups is both warm and creamy, but ramp up the volume and guttural, visceral sounds can be ripped from them - again highlighting the diversity of the Wildkat.

The Wildkat benefits from some hardware that you'd normally associate with guitar carrying a much weightier price tag. What's not already been said about the Bigsby B70 vibrato tailpiece, doesn't need saying. Working in combination with the LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar, you have absolute control over the strings for creating delicate textures with your sound. The Grover machine heads keep your tuning fixed tight, so once you're locked in, nothing is knocking you out of tune.

The Wildkat is completed in an antique natural finish to the body, whilst a metal vintage-style Epiphone badge and truss rod carrying the distinctive Epiphone “E” adorns the headstock.

Whether you're a bedroom rocker or stadium filler, this guitar has the prowess one would expect from a company like Epiphone, with years of experience behind them. But let's be honest, this guitar is not one to be hung on the wall or left in its case, neglected and never picked up. The Wildkat lives for the stage and deserves to be in the spotlight, every night.
