You can see from the posted shipping totals just how insanely rare the Emperors are. Total of 9 shipped in 1960, 4 of which were natural finish. This is one of those 4 naturals. You don't see these very often. This video also really shows just how large the bodies on these guitars are:
Nice. Always a treat to see one of these rare thinline Emps. I've seen them come up for sale a few times over the years. I would have tried one by now... if I was rich. Anyway, closest thing I've seen to this design concept was a custom thinline Super 400 that Gibson built several years ago. Other than that, these things are pretty darn unique. You guys ever play one?
