Epiphone EM-2 Rebel
Made in Korea, Floyd Rose bridge, neck 24cases
The microphones are installed:
- A double neck position
- A simple intermediate position
- A double bridge position

Possible settings are:
- 1 volume
- A serious
- An acute
- A simple selector / humbucker
- A 5-way switch
What makes this instrument can get different tones 9 + 1 by-pass position and all without amp simulation ;-).


Everything is pretty well made despite its Asian manufacturing.
The handle type highway, correct weight, easy access to acute.
Given the possibilities of switches everyone gets the sound he wants so easily. Then it's the fingers that make the difference.


It can accommodate many styles of music.
It has a very personal sound due to the Epiphone pickups that are not necessarily the best but you may have typed sounds Fender and Gibson sounds typed.
The bridge pickup is not unpleasant, usually they are quite noisy and have some fishing in this price range but not that one.
Intermediate positions that are mixing two microphones are very typical metal mediums, to love.


I've had 13 years and it was my first guitar:
- I played three years
- It remained in its cover 5 years
- I replayed 2 years
- It remained in its cover three years (I switched to the bass)

And there I am from out because my brother wants to test a little guitar (he plays drums) and nothing has ever changed:
- Floyd held the almost perfect agreement in the years of storage
- The frets have not changed one bit
- The knobs and switches do not spit at all
- The pickups come out the same sound

The more she matured more I find nice. The body and head inverted gives a devastating look while remaining simple.
The gold hardware that I found a little kitsch has skated for the use and is now close more brass than gold which gives it a small side "vintage" hehe.

It will be hard to repeat this choice because this model is discontinued.
He was arrested in 1998 and was reissued from 2008 Epiphone version of "Designer" but without the head or the reverse switch single / double coil.
I think these changes caused him to lose his personality as much as physical sound.

Epiphone EM-2 Rebel

I randomly post my opinion the month of his birthday

Rating: 7 / 10
The woods are correct trs (we quickly basswood and poplar)
The Epiphone pickups, dune Manir gnrale: blah!
Laccastillage Epiphone, dor here, dune Manir gnrale: medium
Lutherie correct by laying back


The handle is trs cool, very large but easy to play! I think its a compromise between a Gibson neck Slim Taper neck and a 1960 Jackson!
Systm fixing the body / handle and shape are such that linstrument CCAA treble is excellent because the heel begins the 19th case and the handle sencastre litt generally in the body as a set neck but reinforced with 4 screws! The body of 21me comments box at the bass string and 22me at the upper strings!

The guitar is well balance, nor can it be that the horn suprieure moderately comfortable sitting but I quibble!

The purpose of this guitar is both dobtenir sounds Fender Start and Gibson Les Paul sound! Do prsence of the two switch positions in a position that gives the three microphones simple and exactly the same combinations as a Start! Lautre position and the switch switches only two humbuckers which gives the configuration dune Les Paul, the 4th position of the microphone giving slecteur cbl with acute diffrent (the filter Tone knob for both active), the 5th position gives no sound: Friends of Tom Morello hello.
It has 9 sounds + the possibility of making silent guitar with only 2 switches! Trs guitar so versatile while remaining simple OF USE;)

The Schematic of DIFFERENT sounds depending on the positions of the switches:

Rating: 9 / 10
Jaime many profile of the handle and lergonomie
I find the electronic configuration trs well think
Nothing to say if that nest prsence As usual the volume knob of the microphone al Acute and micro intermdiaire me gnent


Sounds empty
Alder body Bolt Saddle + / rosewood Fender + + pitch vibrato, Obviously we are in the kind of sound type Fender Start and not at all in the kind Gibson Les Paul. A bit less true slamming quune Start can be

Electric sound:
For me jai bought my MS-2 micro without acute at this time put a DiMarzio jai jai cbl X2N that only a single volume knob and switch 2 positions to original post switch to simple short not combining original post!
I do not mexprimerais original post on the sound of the guitar nayant not test the microphones Epiphone. Moreover, I immediately find the DiMarzio X2N on this guitar, so I limped dun comment on the sound of the electric guitar and sound possibilities in the practice of the original electronic

Personally jadore:
The profile of the handle
CCAA dernires boxes to handle exceptional vissbr /> The look
Lergonomie (from micro intermdiaire blah, blah and volume knob)
The range of sounds (on paper not a true test)

Otherwise, an Epiphone Heiniger cest ben! What not a Gibson, do not RVer for the same price when.

This notice will be complt ultrieurement ...
No overall rating for the moment

Javier Guante Hermoso's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Epiphone EM-2 Rebel
Korean manufacturing.
Serial number: S4071879

That means, (thank you Pm. Drag and for serial number from Epiphone)
S = Samick factory
Made of 94 = 4
07 = July
1879: The 1879 ° Model released July 94 of the Samick factory.

See Opinion of comprehensive Pm. quality wood and features. I will be less severe than on the quality of its fittings and microphones.

The black paint is a little glitter. I consider the veneer of high quality, to the extent that, the guitar has 13 years of age, she has only to scratch the jack. Hockey head reversed, which made me flash on the guitar ...

Confirmation of the notice of Pm., The upper horn is a little awkward at first sitting in play, but again, nothing alarming.

I put 8 because the pickups are not very well aligned with the strings. just visually distracting.


I love the handle. I spend a capital C profile neck Arial 18 point bold Squier Start with a profile motorway, very flat. The junction provides access to acute very satisfactory.

The thickness of the body gives a very good print quality, but I find it a little heavier than average. Nothing is insurmountable.

The coupling of two switches allows many different sounds. An adjustment period is needed to properly identify the different uses of the switch positions, but after one week, no problem.
I particularly like the position of the split mini micro switch, which allows an intuitive handling.

Well adjusted when I recovered, the licensed floyd is not moving. small floating in the fine tuners but I have not had to touch them, despite the successive dives I have done to the floyd ... again nothing alarming.

9 because I do not like the location of the jack ... too high on the edge, but it is only my opinion ...


TEST: its clear, no name transos amp 20 watts equation 4 bands, at noon.

The diagram in the opinion of Pm. is very explicit.

resume here:

the test is clear in its positions on the single.
Very clean, crystalline wish. A slight buzz on positions 1 and 5, but my favorite positions are the two intermediate positions, 2 and 4. very clean, velvety and with good attack. Pink Floyd enough shade.

Let's add a Big muff very bottom, a compressor and turn on the humbuckers. His Rock-Hard rock specific, precise and sharp attack with comp. A change in the bridge pickup is expected, however, because he drools a little without the comp.

Very versatile in all the moment we take the reflex to rotate the split single / hum. The plus is the 5-position switch in Hum, which mutes the sound. practice to avoid feedback and other noise between songs in concert.

8 for versatility but the lack of precision of the bridge pickup.


Used for one week, bought Irowhat member AF very nice, honest and available I highly recommend if you plan transactions with him.

Very solid guitar, original, versatile and engaging.
Goodies: versatility, esthetic, easy handling, ergonomics, originality
Cons: some minor finishing details, a bridge pickup a little runny.

I am particularly pleased.
Bought 230 euros including setting, there is a great tool to explore different styles, which will not make you lurch. No regrets and thank you Irowhat
