EPIPHONES LATEST limited edition semi has more than a hint of a certain Mr Setzer about it, with the familiar Wildkat model given a lick of metallic red paint evoking fifties Americana. Chrome Alnico P-90s and a Bigsby are anchored to a semi-hollow mahogany body with a substantial centre block, maple top and a set maple neck. Although we had some initial tuning concerns, re-stringing with a heavier set of strings in this case 0.012-0.056-inch settled things down and seemed to compliment the general vibe. The old-school chrome Epiphone badge on the headstock didnt sit quite flush to the headstock facia and rattled as a result, but this didnt come through the amplifier, so only proved to be a minor irritation.
