I've been looking at the Swingster for a while. One of the local

stores has one in, and I went in and played it. Very nice. I'm torn

between the Swingster, and the Wildkat. Maybe when my income tax return comes in.......

Epiphone has given the Emperor Swingster versatile new series/parallel switching via two push-pull pots on the tone controls, which 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.


Ordered a harness for my E-by-G Sheraton (currently in the post to Sweden) which has 4 push-pull pots which can do all the Swingster does "plus" you can split the humbuckers.


The harness cost me $85 to have made, you could knock one up for about $40 if you were good with a soldering iron, schematics available if you search this forum...."Jimmy Page".....then pick a nice set of 4 wire vintage type pickups from GFS of your choice, and nice cheap second hand Joe Pass......There's a nice project.......
