Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor II. It really is an excellent guitar, color me impressed.



Have always wanted one!

Was in a blues band in 1999, where the lead singer Julie, played a Natural Joe Pass, and it sounded fantastic ( she was a very good player too)
Great color, enjoy!

Congrats! At least you went into the music store for a guitar and not just some strings.

I really like hollowbody and semi-hollowbody guitars. I played an acoustic for many years and like that combination of pickups and those hollow spaces. Even if they don't affect the sound much I like to think they do.

Great choice. Love that combination of specs, especially the rosewood bridge.

As a person whose main stage instrument for the last 14-15 years has been an Epi, I approve, as if my approval really means much. Ennyhoo, nice, pretty Epi! Pic of my Sheraton

Drooling over here! The P-90 sound in those guitars is such a unique wonderful sound. That guitar looks great. Maybe I'll get one next month, because ya' know: N+1.

These Sheratons were MIJ and finished in the USA, with Gibson USA Minihumbuckers, whose sound I love, about halfway between a single coil and a humbucker.
