Designed for even the most demanding rock and metal guitarists, the Gothic 1958 Explorer is made to thrash on the big stage.
The hot open-coil humbuckers on this '58 Explorer offer savage rock tone. This is the ultimate Metal shredding machine, with modern upgrades to boot.
Powered by a pair of Dual Alnico Classic humbuckers, its possible to get everything from stripped-down, soaring leads to grungy, gritty power chords and everything else in between. The hardware, appointments and Black Satin finish of this Explorer are custom spec'd to fit the Gothic series for that sinister stage presence.
The Goth ’58 Explorer puts a new twist on a vintage favourite with a Pitch Black colour finish to become the dark knight of the 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.
