Product Description

The Epiphone Goth Explorer is based upon Gibson's very successful Gothic line. The Epiphone Goth Explorer features a satin-black finish and black hardware for an absolutely wicked look. Add to that, a roman numeral XII inlay on the 12th fret, a Celtic Cross on the headstock and Alnico Classic Humbuckers, and you've got guitars guaranteed to wake the dead! KillPot on the tone control allows you to momentarily 'kill' the sound for great effects. Features Epiphone's Limited Lifetime warranty.

Lock Tone
The Lock Tone Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece are standard equipment on all Epiphone guitars with a tune-o-matic setup. From their Custom Les Pauls right down to the Special II, Epiphone knows that tuning stability and sustain can make or break a guitar so it’s important to have a dependable bridge you can trust.

Overall Rating
WOW!! What a bargain!!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
What an amazing bargain! I've had the bug for several months to break down, get in touch with my inner 80's metal head, and buy an Explorer. Not that I play 80's metal, but I've always loved the look of the guitar. Boy howdy, did I get a winner with this one!! Plays great, sounds great, looks majorly cool. Makes me want to break out the spandex and the Aqua-net!!!
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Quality was outstanding. The only other Epiphone electric I've owned was a mid 90's Les Paul Elite (semi-hollow LP). Really cool guitar, but pretty chintzy with the inlays, plating, finish, etc. This guitar has definitely changed my opinion. Frets are dressed well, tuners are top notch, pots are high quality. Pickups are perfect. I remember reading somewhere that they were replicas of the original 58 Gibson humbuckers, so they aren't a high gain pup, but they sound great. I normally play Christian rock, along with more conventional Christian music and this guitar handles it flawlessly.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Lighter than I would have thought. I own a couple of Les Pauls and was expecting the same amount of weight. I was surprised at how light the guitar was, although it does tend to be a bit heavy in the neck. Definitely invest in a set of Strap Locks! The stock strap pegs are pretty flimsy and I would hat to have this thing pop loose. The neck is smooth and a bit chinky, but I've got large hands and it fits quite well. Easy layout on the control and the stutter switch in the tone pot is a really neat addition.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Warm, smooth, like a nice cup of hot chocolate. Plays clean, crunchy, and dirty with no problems. Notes sustain well during solos. Handles barre chords as well as open chords with a very nice voicing.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish, while a flat black, was amazing. The guitar looked like it was carved out of a chunk of black coal. smooth finish with no bubble or flaws.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
This guitar is indeed a wonderful bang for the buck. It doesn't come with a cae or a gig-bag and will definitely NOT fit into anything you might have laying around, but a gig bag for it can be had for around 30.00.
How was the action out of the box?
Nice and low. Needed to change out the strings because it was strung with 9's and I prefer 10's with a wound G string, no buzz, no dead spots, nice and smooth.
