Epiphone emperor 2 "joe pass."
My guitar ISSUE of a series starting with "s" which would mean that it is of better quality than those of n series commanant by another letter of after a notice seen here.
The caractrisiques are known, so I spend later.

USE

The neck is super enjoyable, quivalant, it is my opinion gibson.Sauf moche.Les repres not pearl but plastic imitation (spleen). Mount with flat files, the action is very low and ideal playing comfort.

sound with the original pickups is very average.

SONORITS

I mount above the "seymour bam 59", and all became top. Super sleeve, great sound, a true jazz guitar, ugly and without prestige, but a formidable efficiency.
I'm on the vir sign skid plate "Joe Pass" becaufe ca was a bit stupid, and I did not (for now) replaces. I finally found nicer like this.
I play jazz and blues on a Peavey classic 30 (great amp) and I get stack the sound I have in my ears. when I have to play more rock, I take my strat us 89 (a wonder), but sometimes rhythmic, I do not take the Epiphone hesitates for large saturs sounds good fatty exellent quality e (Seymour and all-tube amp forcing).
But for BB King solos or Steeve Ray, I return to my Start up finer
(Bends with large flat file, ca kills fingers)

NOTICE GLOBAL

I bought it (pigale) when I lived Cayenne (French Guiana, the Guyanese Hi !!)
there are now 6 or 7 years old, I do not know.
All that is above mtalique svrement rouill.J'envisage change the tailpiece and mcaniques one of those 4, but there's no hurry. I had paid in 4500 francs at the time, and I do not regret it when you see the price of Gibson guitars or luthier. I played with a guy who had a're 175, and frankly, with seymour sound was far from being ridiculous, and comfort of the very close round, the prestge less ....
I have not had the opportunity to try the new Ibanez and Peavey of the same style and I'm curious to see what it gives over my Epihone.
Anyway I do not regret the emperor purchases + seymour bam 59

Added 05/08

I changed the mcaniques for KLUSON MD33N, tailpiece, I put microphones caches, everything chrome. I changed the microphone slecteut, the pots and the pots buttons. I changed the bridge for a Fishman piezo for archtop. This guitar has become superb and very effective and polyvalante.
But I ended up falling for a gibson es 175 ...
That fact that I am disposed to sell this piphone.
If your intersss contact me.
