From the Inspired by Gibson Collection, the Epiphone Explorer takes the classic model of the 1950s and adds some updated features. This body shape has often been the choice of guitarists looking for a slightly edgier look - Gary Moore and Dave Grohl are a couple of great examples. This affordable choice from Epiphone gives all of the classic vibes but with the added benefits of ProBucker pickups, a Graph Tech nut, quality Grover tuners and a SlimTaper neck. The end result is a great guitar that is a lot of fun to play.
With a ProBucker 3 in the bridge and a ProBucker 2 in the neck, the big humbucker tones are full and rich sounding. Huge chords and blistering solos all cut through with ease making it perfect for rock and metal. The clean tones also sound great so more is on offer here than just the heavier side of music.
