Mr Bali's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Epiphone Alleykat"

Epiphone Alleykat
Korean manufacturing.
Mahogany body
22 jumbo frets.
Groover mechanical oil bath
Fixed bridge type Tune o Matic.
Channel type "Slim Tapper" 60 '
1 New York Mini Epiphone Humbucker (Ceramic) to handle.
An Epiphone Alnico Classic (Alnico 5) in bridge.
1 master volume, neck volume 1, volume 1 easel, a general tone, one 3-position selector.


Channel enjoyable. but not too round. Radius key dish (12 ')
Good ergonomics. Light guitar (half case).
Access to Acute is correct but nothing exceptional.
The original sound is not bad but I recommend a change of pickups.


Personal I changed the bridge pickup for a Gibson Classic 57 (the top).
The neck pickup "mini-humbucker" sounds good. Small output level close to a simple but quiet.
The "Gibson" in the bridge really makes the guitar sound like a real body half made in United States.
The intermediate position is super interesting.
I played on a Vox AC 30 CC2.


I have 2 years and I gets off.
I have guitars Made in United States but this little Epiphone is largely the comparison. (Maybe not with the original pickups).
I play as much as my other guitars even though it is certainly the cheapest.
Excellent value for money.
Look fabulous.
Sounds close to a solid body but with the weight of half a box.
Format Les Paul type guitar (a little bigger) but much less so great a ES 335 with a more compressed.

I know that the model is no longer for sale so if you come across a model OCCAZ one second please ...

Epiphone Alleykat
Korean guitar 21 frets, a cutaway, set neck to the 17th box.
A humbucker at the bridge and a mini humbucker in the neck the two designated and certified by Gibson United States. Fixed bridge. 4 knobs settings, volume 3 (one general) and a tone. Grover oil bath.


The handle is half a box, that is, a real highway to the 15ème/17ème box, but after the acute access is necessarily not the strong point of this guitar. In terms of ergonomics, the guitar is really comfortable, it's not an enormous chest half (it yours in a bag for paul). it has two anvantages, the first being the aesthetic is not found with a huge guitar it seems to have areas of no-man's land and are therefore poor. Secondly, and this is surtoutr the interest it gives more versatility to the guitar and sounds less heavy, especially when playing on amps means. So this guitar has a very fast its very hot on the neck pickup and is able to have a lot of fishing when we go in the bridge position, the pickups gibson with good sound quality.
It is also worth noting that unlike many of the epiphone is not too heavy.


While the sound now ... Well, the one is really surprised by this guitar. I use a small frontman 15R with a blues Breaker 2 (Marshall) and necessarily gives some great blues sounds - blues rock and putting just a little boost on the pedal the ghost of Chuck Berry haunts us. but it does not stop there! Rory Gallagher's on it seems to end up growing in the garage rock! I love! lot of fishing, a favorite neck pickup and the solos sound the fire of God! well on this guitar knows its limit on the metal or even hard rock! but half a box so we do not take it for ca!
So this guitar has a really surprising versatility for a half box, mini humbucker in the neck allowing it to not have sound but keeps running over half a mind body and can reach a lot of styles with sounds really great for a guitar in this category!


I have for a month and a half. Ca in the store was love at first sight, this guitar is really nice, I have a vintage tobacco burst is really splendid! Another thunderbolt AC was the sound! versatile and really good! I tried many cases half of this range, ibanez, peavey, and other epiphone (dot sheraton casino and the Sheraton is very nice but expensive and rare) and I found this great compromise between quality finishes and Price! € 525 bought a really good price for a guitar like that so for sure I would do this choice!
Note that the violin is really good epiphone which allows you to change the pickups safely!

Epiphone Alleykat
Origin Corenne
single cutaway hollowbody guitar small close to a LP
mini humbucker in neck position and a humbucker bridge position
tune o matic bridge
1 Volume and 1 Tone for each pickup and 1 volume gnral


the neck is wide but very pleasant, 21 jumbo frets are well polished
The guitar is very pleasing Legris and play even when sitting


empty sound is very correct with good sound projection and the strings dtachent much from one another
dception small branch once the sound is a little deaf but can be corrected qvec qualisation good and the two microphones have very DIFFERENT characters that enables a wide range of sounds
on a good class A amp was vintage sounds and fabulous crunch


this guitar is quality for a small price, just waiting for you once did not get the sound of half a box type ES has more than one is raproche Solidbody because it is small enough ey table Paisse
but less than 400 was worth the cluck
Me I plan to change the pickups to real Gibson or Seymour see
