The legendary Epiphone archtop joins the Blue Royale Family.
Epiphone presents the Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale debuting in an exclusive Chicago Blue Pearl color finish along with distinctive Royale-style Silver Sparkle binding. It features superb Epiphone pickups and electronics along with the rock-solid hardware you've come to expect from Epiphone.
The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale features the timeless Wildkat profile made from mahogany with a maple top and classic Epiphone styled f-holes. The glued-in hard maple neck is hand-set and has a fast and comfortable SlimTaper D-profile with a 24.75 scale and a 12 radius. The neck has a beautiful rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets.
The truss rod cover (2-layer black and white) is matched to a classic '60s-era "E" logo for Epiphone. The Sloped Dovewing headstock has a vintage-style Epiphone metal badge. The body has Royale-style Silver Sparkle binding on the front and single-layer Silver Sparkle binding on the neck.
The Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale is powered by Epiphone-designed P-90 Dogear Classic pickups. P-90 pickups are the world's best single-coil pickups and are made from Alnico magnets with precise articulation for leads and rock-and-roll growl for power chords and rhythm. The neck has an Epiphone Alnico P-90R while the bridge position has a slightly overwound Alnico P-90T for leads.
Each pickup is activated via an Epiphone 3-way toggle switch for rhythm, lead, and a standard middle position for both pickups. Controls include Master Volume, Master Tone, and individual volume controls for each pickup with black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts.
The Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale comes with a time-tested Epiphone LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Bigsby B70 Vibrato tailpiece combined with Grover Rotomatic machine heads and an 18:1 tuning ratio for precise intonation and rock solid tuning. Each Ltd. Ed. Wildkat Blue Royale is set up at the Epiphone factory with the world's finest strings from D'Addario in a 10-46 (light) gauge.
