Overview

Epiphone presents the Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale debuting in an exclusive Chicago Blue Pearl color finish along with distinctive Royale-style Silver Sparkle binding. It features superb Epiphone pickups and electronics along with the rock-solid hardware you've come to expect from Epiphone.

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale features the timeless Wildkat profile made from mahogany with a maple top and classic Epiphone styled f-holes. The glued-in hard maple neck is hand-set and has a fast and comfortable SlimTaper D-profile with a 24.75 scale and a 12 radius. The neck has a beautiful rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets.

The truss rod cover (2-layer black and white) is matched to a classic '60s-era "E" logo for Epiphone. The Sloped Dovewing headstock has a vintage-style Epiphone metal badge. The body has Royale-style Silver Sparkle binding on the front and single-layer Silver Sparkle binding on the neck.

The Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale is powered by Epiphone-designed P-90 Dogear Classic pickups. P-90 pickups are the world's best single-coil pickups and are made from Alnico magnets with precise articulation for leads and rock-and-roll growl for power chords and rhythm. The neck has an Epiphone Alnico P-90R while the bridge position has a slightly overwound Alnico P-90T for leads.

Each pickup is activated via an Epiphone 3-way toggle switch for rhythm, lead, and a standard middle position for both pickups. Controls include Master Volume, Master Tone, and individual volume controls for each pickup with black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts.

The Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale comes with a time-tested Epiphone LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Bigsby B70 Vibrato tailpiece combined with Grover Rotomatic machine heads and an 18:1 tuning ratio for precise intonation and rock solid tuning. Each Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale is set up at the Epiphone factory with the world's finest strings from D'Addario in a 10-46 (light) gauge.

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wildkat Blue Royale Electric Guitar:

    The Epiphone Wildcat (Royal Blue) Guitar is a great buy! I purchased this at a sale price as I always wanted a semi hollow body and I could could not be more happy. The look of the guitar is amazing and the quality is hard to beat at any price!
    The guitar was set up spot on out of the box,and it sounds absolutely fabulous. I am planning on installing a roller bridge with the Bigsby as an upgrade. It is the only thing I would change on the guitar......It is that good!
    If you are looking for a semi hollow body without a hefty price tag, and one that looks,sounds, and plays like it should cost twice as much as it does......This is the one!

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wildkat Blue Royale Electric Guitar:

      I've always wanted an arch-top hollow body guitar. I love the sound even when it's not hooked up to an amp. The sound is very full and clear. The vibrato is great too. Haven't had any of the tuning issues that people talk about with Bigsbys.
