Epiphone Uptown Kat ES Electric Guitar

The UpTown Kat ES Collection is the next generation of Epiphone's classic "Kat" archtop featuring a true ES style semi-hollowbody archtop with Epiphone ProBucker FB720 mini humbuckers, GraphTech nut, Ebony fingerboard, and Grover Rotomatic tuners.

New Kat in Town:

The UpTown Kat ES Collection is the next generation of Epiphone's critically acclaimed ES-style archtop featuring a 5-ply Maple & Poplar bent rims, pressed top and back with a Spruce center block and 5-ply white and black binding on the front and back. The Mahogany neck has an Ebony fingerboard with a rounded "C" profile, pearloid "block" inlays, a 24.75" scale length, 22 medium wide frets, 12" radius, and a 1.68" GraphTech nut. The headstock features Epiphone's historic "badge" logo used briefly in the early 60s and the orange f-hole label is also modeled after vintage Epi labels from the 60s.

Epiphone Mini-ProBucker FB720:

The Uptown Kat ES Collection is powered by the ProBucker FB720 pickups, the same mini-humbucker used in the Ltd. Ed. Joe Bonamassa "Treasure" Firebird and reconstructed to the original specifications of the Gibson Firebird pickups from the mid 60s. Accept no substitutes! The ProBucker FB720 has two Alnico II bar magnets used as blades in the coils along with a steel reflector plate to achieve the classic Firebird tone of the 60s. Because the DC resistance is around 7.85Kohm, the ProBucker FB720 mini humbucker provides a clean, bright output with incredible touch sensitivity and a warm low end compared to a standard mini humbuckers. Controls include gold speed knobs with volume control for each pickup, a master volume control, and a master tone control.

Epiphone Hardware:

All Uptown Kats features our legendary LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and trapeze tailpiece along with Grover Rotomatic 18:1 ratio tuners for fast and accurate tuning.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Epiphone products.

CUSTOMER
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: Guitar looks great, pickups sound great, BUT sadly the frets are not leveled. Many areas up the neck has fret buzz and 2 dead notes. The fretboard is smooth and the neck profile is gib on like. Just those unleveled frets are going to cost me 60.00 to get fixed. Not too happy spending money on repairs that should not be needed on a 600.00 new guitar.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
