The Gibson Explorer was released back in ’58 alongside the Flying V in an attempt to push solid body construction forward through the radical design and futuristic body shape. It’s since been adopted as a metal and hard rock players favourite. The Epiphone 1984 Explorer EX is a powerhouse axe that takes you back to the golden era of Explorers, the mid ‘80s.
With a Mahogany body and neck, this monster guitar is rich and resonant, well balanced and ready to rock. The SlimTaper D profile is fast and built for speed and precision, perfect for today’s speed freak metal players.
Loaded with a duo of EMG-81 and 85 humbuckers, the same as Ozzy sideman Zakk Wylde, you get crisp, gnarly tones. With great note definition and clarity, they offer unreal power and deliver those monstrous riffs with ease.
