Epiphone Innovation Again
The Wildkat Royale’s innovative design starts with a solid piece of warm, sustain-rich mahogany that is computer-routed to create an acoustic guitar-like body except with a “center block” area like an ES-335. The body is then covered with a beautiful pearl white finish with gold sparkle binding and gold hardware to create a semi-hollow body masterpiece. The Wildkat Royale’s mahogany body is matched with a hand-fitted, glued-in solid maple neck for maximum tone and sustain. It features a rosewood fingerboard and an authentic gold B70 licensed Bigsby® vibrato for even more sonic versatility. The vintage voice of this ‘Kat comes from a pair of Epiphone gold "dog ear" P- 90 Classic pickups specifically designed by Epiphone.
