The Epiphone Goth 1958 Explorer Hardtail Electric Guitar is made for heavy riffs. Dual Alnico Classic humbuckers give it tonal depth and dark appointments enhance its sinister vibe: black chrome hardware, rosewood fretboard with side markers, and a black satin finish. Mahogany body and neck. XII inlay at the 12th fret. LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for more sustain and easier string changing,. The master tone control has an innovative integrated killswitch/tone pot that lets you create sonic strobe effects.
Here's what Epiphone have to say about the Goth Explorer
The Goth ’58 Explorer puts a new twist on a vintage favorite with a Pitch Black color finish to become the dark knight of our Goth collection. With its angular, asymmetrical body and pointed headstock, the legendary Explorer was light years ahead of its time when it was first introduced in 1958. In fact, the Explorer was such a radical departure that only around 100 of the famed instruments were produced at the legendary Kalamazoo factory. What few originals remain are now highly prized collectibles selling for $500,000. Now, Epiphone brings back the one-of-a-kind legend with a whole new look.
The Goth ’58 Explorer features our Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service. Visit an Authorized Epiphone Dealer today and visit the dark side with the Goth ’58 Explorer.
