for Sale is my now discontinued (and therefore very rare, i challenge you to find another for Sale ANYWHERE... seriously.) MINT CONDITION Epiphone Alleykat archtop guitar in 'trans-black' colour.

Wikipedia entry:
Quote
The Alleykat is an archtop guitar manufactured by the Epiphone Guitar company. It is made in Korea and features a single cutaway design similar to a Gibson ES-175 albeit without the florentine design. The Alleykat is a semi-hollow body guitar that features one wood block under the bridge to improve sustain and reduce feedback. The Alleykat line was discontinued by Epiphone in 2008.

I could go on all day about this guitar and give you the salesman spiel but to save you all time i'll give you a few links to read through for those who are actually interested in buying it.

Epiphone's press-release about the Alleykat and the other 'kat' guitars

Open & honest reviews by people who actually own and have played the guitar.

Epiphonewiki page (scroll to very bottom for Alleykat)

here's what GAK has to say about the guitar:
Quote
The Epiphone AlleyKat Electric Guitar a citified kitty. Though the AlleyKat archtop guitar has the same body design as the WildKat, it's got big, elegant pearl bars inlaid in the fretboard and a daintier, simple stopbar bridge setup. The '57 humbucker at the bridge and a New York mini-humbucker at the neck make the AlleyKat Ltd a guitar that treads easily in the smoother, slicker, jazzier realms of the night.


the specs for the guitar are as follows:
BODY:
Top: Flame Maple
Back: Mahogany

NECK:
Wood: Maple
Join: Set

FINGERBOARD:
Species: Rosewood
Scale Length: 24.75"
Number of Frets: 22
Nut Width: 1.68"
Inlays: Block

HARDWARE:
Bridge:Stopbar
Pickups:1 x '57 Humbucker, 1 x NY Mini
Controls: 3 volume (one for each pickup and one master volume), 1 tone (controls both pickups)
Machine Heads: Grover 18:1 Chrome Tuners
