Overview

When the Epiphone Wildkat premiered in the early '90s, it introduced a new generation to historic Epiphone archtop style, which the House of Stathopoulo has been perfecting for nearly a century. Now the Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio nouveau classic is back with new colors and a streamlined look.

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio features the timeless Wildkat profile made from mahogany with a flame maple top and classic Epiphone styled f-holes. The glued-in hard maple neck is hand-set and has a fast and comfortable 1960s 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 œE logo for Epiphone. The Sloped Dovewing headstock, also an iconic style from the early '60s, has a vintage Epiphone metal badge. The body has simple but elegant single-layer Ivory colored binding as does the top, fingerboard and f-holes.

The Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio is powered by Epiphone designed Dogear Classic P-90 pickups, a favorite of Epi fans for decades. P-90 pickups are the world's best single coil pickups made from Alnico magnets with precise articulation for leads and rock n' roll growl for power chords and rhythm. Each pickup is activated via an Epiphone 3-way toggle switch for rhythm, lead, and a standard middle position for both pickups. Controls include a handy Master Volume, Master Tone, and individual volume controls for each pickup with Black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts.

Epiphone hardware is just as famous as its electronics and the Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio comes with a time-tested Epiphone LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Epiphone Stopbar tailpiece combined with Epiphone Premium Die-Cast machine heads. Epiphone Die-Cast machine heads feature a pro-level 14:1 tuning ratio for precise intonation and rock solid tuning. Each Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Studio is set up at the Epiphone factory with the world's finest strings from D'Addario in a 10-46 (light) gauge.

Okay, so I just have a regular wildcat and the only difference is the studio doesn't have a bigsby. That's the only difference. If you dint like bigsbys or you cant afford $80 for it, then this guitar is perfect. I don't own a studio but, when I played it in store, it felt and sounded the same as my bigsby wildcat back home. Nice warm p-90 tone, but make sure you have a noise gate, because I feel like this baby hums more than a hi-gain telecaster. The flamed antique natural chrome is nice and classy looking and is beautiful on stage. Overall a great guitar and I would definitely recommend it to a beginner who doesn't need or want the bigsby,

Good guitar for the money

I really did buy it to hang on the wall. I bought a blemished Wildkat but the scratches aren't that noticeable.

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wildkat Studio Electric Guitar:

    The quality is perfect, it feels great and the neck is robust and feels great to the hand. Its not a heavy guitar and the size is perfect. Tonality is great, and it sounds great (but not so loud) unplugged. This guitar is beautiful and since its not a common choice like a strat /les paul/ telecaster, you stand out. Wine red is on sale, 100 bucks discount, and it happened to be the color i was looking for, so its the best deal ive gotten on a guitar.

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wildkat Studio Electric Guitar:

    Absolutely love the guitar, out of the box it played well after dropping the action on the bridge. The strings did have a bit of trouble staying in tune, but I think that's just becuase it's new. Overall I think the guitar is excellent, for the money a very great purchase!!

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wildkat Studio Electric Guitar:

          The Wildkat was a bit loose upon arrival: Pick up toggle intermittent, neck needed work. However a trip to my favorite guitar tech and a set of flat wound 11's and she sounds pretty good. I do not expect a factory set up to be adequate and 9's or 10's just don't cut it so I actually plan for the added expense.

              Can't beat the deal on this one, especially when it was on sale. Played like a dream out of the box and sounds as well as a guitar twice/three times its price. It's only been two weeks but I am extremely impressed.

              Great guitar for a wonderful price, thank you GC! Perfect guitar to rock loud all day and then unplug to play sweet and low at night without losing any of the pleasure of playing this guitar. Has a great weight and feel and just looks darn pretty! Can't go wrong with this one.
