One of my new house guests 2006 Epiphone Emperor Joe Pass

Feb 27 2014 by Nero

Hey guys, so my girlfriend's dad happens to be a guitar player and while we were on the phone the other day I mentioned I've been wanting to get an Gibson ES-339 for a while, at some point I bought up how Izzy Stradlin used to play a Gibson ES-175 live and recorded Appetite with one as well and turns out he had a Joe Pass Emperor hollowbody.

He brought it over along with a Strat (which will get her own post after I play it) I took it apart and cleaned it up nicelyand this things feels so good, it's got such a nice sound unplugged but plugged in while the tone is just right, the pickups are not putting out much output so I'm not sure if there's something wrong with them or that's how they are supposed sound, agains Alnico 2 pros they are kinda on the low side.

All and all it's a sweet guitar and I will be using it to record Izzy parst on my GNR videos coming later this year.

What do you think? have you ever played one?
