Merry Christmas to me, from my amazing family: an Epiphone Wildkat. Glad I restrained my GAS til after Christmas. This is one of the guitars I was considering when thinking of adding a hollow/semi-hollow to the collection. I played a couple at my local GCs, liked them, and had only two reservations: 1. The only ones they had in stock were yellow, and while they looked OK, the color wasn’t speaking to me the way that this wine-red does (and the photo barely does it justice). 2. I’ve never had a guitar with a Bigsby (or a trem of any kind), and I’ve read plenty of horror stories about tuning issues with them. If I’d been the one to make the choice, I’d probably have bought the hardtail version, but since this was a gift, it seems like an ideal opportunity to learn to play with a Bigsby. I’ve seen any number of suggestions about dealing with tuning issues (lubing or changing the nut, different strings, roller bridge, etc.), but I’ve also seen people in various guitar forums indicate that they’ve never had any problems keeping their Bigsby-equipped guitars in tune. I’ll see how it goes. I saw one review that said the Wildkat was for those who think of themselves as more Eddie Cochran than Eddie Van Halen… which means this is the perfect choice for me!
