Classic Construction with SwingBucker Pickups!
With it's hand-scalloped arched Spruce top combined with a laminated arched-back maple body and glued-in 3-piece Hard maple neck, the Swingster has what it takes to satisfy any professional's demand for great tone.
Series/Parallel Switching
At the heart of the guitar are Epiphone's NEW SwingBucker™ pickups and a series/parallel electronics switching package that outperforms all others in its class. Specially designed for the SwingsterT, the humbuckers offer no-hum performance and feature classic Alnico-V magnets, enamel wire and over-wound coils for the perfect combination of warmth and bite. Two push/pull Tone controls allow you to change each pickup's output individually from parallel to series wiring creating a palette of useful sounds to tap into ranging from warm humbuckers to "quacky" single-coil type sounds and everything in-between.
Loads of Bling
Of course, any swinging machine needs a vibrato and the Swingster is no exception featuring a Bigsby Licensed B30 with original style "wire" handle, a favorite of legends like Chet Atkins and Merle Travis.

Topping it all off are Epiphone's trademark, multi-bound headstock with the classic pearloid "vine" inlay, premium Grover® 14:1 tuners and a multi-bound, 20 fret rosewood fingerboard with block inlay. Gorgeous!

Unlike some, Epiphone spares no expense by adding a "pinned" tune-o-matic bridge for smooth operation and accurate return to pitch that is preferred when using a vibrato.
