This Epiphone Emperor Joe Pass plays and sound great. These guitars are a great way to get started with an electric archtop "jazz" guitar or make for a great gigging guitar for someone who would rather not take out their vintage Gibson. As they usually do, Samick did a great job with making an absolutely fantastic player. The condition is very good with little playwear, and just one very small impression on the back of the neck.
The guitar comes with the original hardshell case.
