Epiphone Uptown Kat ES Electric Guitar
Fresh for 2020 Epiphone have a new generation of Archtop guitars, the Epiphone Uptown Kat ES Electric Guitar, which embodies all the class and vintage sound more discerning players might be seeking, however with a healthy dose of modern appeal and playability.
Built with a 5-ply Maple/Poplar body, the Epiphone Uptown Kat ES Electric Guitar presents a wicked aesthetic, with classy 'F' holes cut into the top of the body and bold metallic finishes to capture hearts and imaginations. The 5-ply body is set with a Mahogany neck, featuring a highly playable slim taper 'C' profile that Gibson players will find familiar and comfortable. A 12" radius Ebony fretboard tops off the build, providing a bit of the secret spice that make Epiphone guitars sound so good.
Our sound is delivered courtesy of two powerful Mini-Probucker FB720 pickups, emulating authentic sounding vintage tone with plenty of sustain, warmth, and a tight treble response. Other hardware appointments include a gold plated hardware, Grover 18:1 ratio tuning machines, a LockTone ABR bridge, the highly coveted trapeze tailpiece and a GraphTech nut, all aspects which helps deliver the premium feel and performance we expect from Epiphone.
