    iv got a ltd ed wildkat coming soon i decided upon it because it sounds prefect for me. flame maple top, mahogany back and sides, thin jazz box construction, p90's (i might switch for some better P90's) bigsby vibrato, grovers and no pick guard :D so i can see the carved flamed maple top:applause::applause:

    A fine guitar but a thin jazzbox it ain't, especially from construction POV. It's basicly a hollowed solid body. Tone is unmistakenly "solid" with LP like sustain(well, mine has). Doesn't mean you can't play jazz on it tho. :)

    Ricochet beat me to it. Not a laminate or jazzbox construction at all. Can still get some great melodic feedback out of it though.

    Thanks, you're right. I use it everywhere from in church to with my main band, that does old school punk rock and roll (think Clash, Pistols, Ramones, Rancid, etc.).

    I like my Wildkat. I don't play it all the time but it's a fine sounding and looking guitar.

    I should note that the Kat series production began in Korea and is currently in China. My 2005 WildKat was made in the Unsung factory in Korea. The serial number should contain a factory code (the letter part of the serial number) identifying where a particular guitar was made.
