Sound of Epiphone WildKat Limited Edition Electric Guitar

  • the overall tone is rich, warm, and smooth, clean tone;
  • you get great highs, lows and mids with it;
  • a beautiful, airy, clear, tone with lots of high end extension and large component of nice accoustic character;
  • dirty bottomend that growls but also able to play clean beautiful jazz parts and belt out the blues like a crying baby;
  • the sound is huge and can be slightly boomy on the low end if playing with distortion;
  • full but hot sound on the bridge that dosen't get shrill.

Pros of Epiphone WildKat Limited Edition Electric Guitar

  • a great guitar for the price;
  • jazz box;

  • it can accurately produce thousands of tones;
  • thin neck but with a thick feeling to it;
  • you can reach all the frets;
  • the body is surprisingly thin for a hollow body;
  • very good for beginner students;
  • the body materials and semi-hollow construction really add to the tone;
  • stays in tune very well.

Cons of Epiphone WildKat Limited Edition Electric Guitar

  • you can't get too rough with the Bigsby but for subtle effect it works reasonable well;
  • the strings it comes with break because of sharp tune-o-matic saddles and the saddles need springs to hold the screws in;
  • knobs and pickups selector covers are cheap.

Suggestions for this Epiphone Guitar

  • adjust the action slightly if you get fret buzz;
  • it will go out of tune if you use the tremelo too much;
  • use big, flatwound strings;
  • TonePros locking bridge helps with tuning stability;
  • you'd might as well consider Ibanez Artcore, Gretsch Tennessee Rose, Gretsch Nashville;
  • change the saddles for Graph Techs.
