    Hi there,

    I wonder if anyone has both an Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor and an Ibanez Artcore AF75 and can compare them in size for me.

    I've Googled the measurements and it seems like the Ibanez is slightly smaller, but when I look at pictures it looks bigger.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    The AF75 is just big boned.

    It sure is! But is the Epi JP Emperor as big boned?

    I think it's mostly the matter of shape. Ibanez seems just a bit rounder. Don't know about Emperor, but Ibanez feels very comfortable (even for me - Semi Hollow player)

    I totally agree. I’m an Epiphone Casino player but I find the Ibanez AF75 much more comfortable when sitting down ... I kinda prefer Epiphone tho so got my eyes on that Epi Joe Pass Emperor now

    My JP and AF100 are nearly identical in size, the bodies only differ fractionally in width / length (ibby has <1/2" shorter body) and are nearly spot on in thickness.

    Thanks a lot Gary. Good to know! Looking at pictures of the AF100 I think it looks much bigger than the Epi JP Emperor, just like the AF75.

    I’m gonna order an JP Emperor next week. Looking forward to checking it out!
