My first of two new to me-- a 2002 Unsung factory in Korea Emperor Joe Pass:

Hardly a scratch. I just pulled the Gibson clear plastic off of the pickups. The case is immaculate. I think this guitar was unplayed and sat on a stand, thus a bit of tarnish. It plays with loud acoustic volume and sounds sweet plugged in.


I will need to redo intonation right away. I am going to fit with flat wounds.

The other is a 2004 Riviera with the 2 pickup configuration. It has yet to arrive, but it is in route.

Nice Emperor II.
I have a '99 Samick built Joe Pass Emp. II. Same color as yours.
Mine isn't very "stock" anymore, as I've changed out a few parts. Tuning machines (Wilkenson),Nut(Tusq),Pick ups(Seymour Duncan APH II's)
Trapeze tail piece(China).

Hey Paully! I am glad you wrote. I am looking at upgrading the tuning machines and purchasing the appropriate truss wrench. I am not sure the tuners aren't fine-- with the colder weather and new strings I would probably be retuning constantly anyway. However, the Wilkenson you mentioned is something for me to look into. I love the tone and the pickups are sounding sweet. The color combination matches my Orange Amp in a weird way!
