The Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor-II PRO pays homage to the "President of Bebop guitar", Mr Joe Pass. Pass was a pioneering and prolific jazz guitarist. Famed for his use of the Gibson ES-175, the Emperor-II Pro is a fitting tribute to one of the very best.
With a Select Spruce top and hand-scalloped bracing, this is a true archtop. Big, smooth and really refined, it just oozes class. The 3 piece Maple neck has a comfortable 1960s Slim Taper C profile and 12"radius. Perfect for all those sweeping jazz runs.
Loaded with a pair of Epiphone ProBuckers you get all those beautiful, smooth, slick jazz tones. These pickups are really well rounded and offer a broad scope of sound, a most fitting tribute to one of the jazz world's most iconic players.
