I was greeted by a chap called Dave and i explained i was interested in buying another guitar, a Fender Stratocaster to be precise. I explained i wanted to try a few options and in particular i was attracted to flashy looking guitars. I selected several to play and Dave took me to a practice room where i spent a couple of hours playing different guitars. His knowledge was excellent and he was very patient. Dave listened to what i wanted as a musician and provided the right equipment when i needed it followed by advice on the differences between each one. I settled on a very good guitar and a couple of pedals. If you are going to buy from PMT, GO TO THE BIRMINGHAM STORE.

Overview

Designed to meet the demands of the metal players of the 1980's, the Explorer servers up immense rock and heavy tone with the versatility offered by a pair of EMG Humbucker pickups. The classic Explorer design was originally introduced in 1958, which served as a lightweight, ergonomic body that offered something with a little bit more stage flair than traditional electrics at the time.

Built for rock-solid performance, the '84 Explorer plays as good as it looks. Crank up the EMG Humbuckers for savage rock tone and sustain.

The savage rock tone of the Explorer is offered up by a pair of EMG humbucker pickups. At the neck, an EMG-85 uses two Alnico magnet coils with a wide arpeture which thickens up the low end nicely. At the bridge, tone is handed by an EMG-81 which really shines once you send the volume into overdrive. Combine the two and you'll have a head-ringing combo that cuts through even the busiest metal mix.

The mahogany neck is hand-fitted and glued into the body and features a 24.75” scale, a rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets, a 1.68” nut width, and a 12” radius. The 1984 Explorer EX includes Epiphone’s trademark LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and LockTone StopBar tailpiece, which provide solid string tension and quick tuning accuracy.
