Summary: The Epiphone Emperor VC offers amazing tones. The laminated maple back and sides are topped with a select spruce top for a tone that's smooth and warm with plenty of high-frequency content. A newly installed humbucker is the perfect complement for the tonewood selection, providing plenty of output. The set maple neck of the Emperor is comfortable to play and offers great sustain. A new wood tailpiece, pickguard, and knobs have also been installed.
