    Product Description

    Epiphone and Lee Malia of Bring Me the Horizon are proud to announce his Signature LE Explorer Custom Artisan guitar. To get his signature tone, Epiphone used Gibson USA pickups with coil-tapping to produce that iconic powerful heavy sound.

    Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan Guitar
    Designed with Lee Malia of Bring Me the Horizon
    Featuring Gibson USA P-94 and 84T-LM humbucker with coil-splitting
    Artisan inlay and gold hardware
    "Lee Malia" signature on back of headstock
    "Limited Edition" logo on back of headstock
    Custom gigbag and hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity

    Epiphone presents the Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan Outfit, designed with Lee Malia of Bring Me the Horizon. Featuring the classic Explorer profile in Lee’s signature Walnut finish with a Gibson USA P-94 single coil and 84T-LM™ humbucker pickup, vintage style “Artisan” inlay, and custom gigbag with hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity.

    The New Sound of Rock and Pop 
    Bring Me the Horizon is one of the fastest rising music groups in the world and Lee Malia has emerged as one of the leading guitarists of his generation. Like Lee’s Epiphone Les Paul Artisan, the new Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan Outfit features another classic “Kalamazoo” era design—the Explorer--in a beautiful Walnut finish with Ivory and Black binding on the body and headstock along with an “Artisan” floral inlay in pearloid on a smooth Torrefied Composite fingerboard. The Mahogany body has a Maple top to add bite to the tone. The Mahogany neck has a “1959” Rounded “C” profile with a 24.75” scale length. The black Explorer-style headstock has a pearloid “Epiphone” logo in 60s era typeface with a “Lee Malia” signature inlay on the back.

    Gibson USA Pickups with Coil-Splitting 
    To get his distinctive tone, Lee Malia prefers the combination of a sensitive P-94 single coil pickup for rhythm and a powerful Gibson 84T-LM™ humbucker for leads. In between the two pickups under the pickguard is a "Dummy Coil" that cancels the “hum” when in single-coil mode. Three traditional “TopHat” knobs with metal inserts control neck volume, bridge volume, and master tone. The bridge volume also serves as a coil-spitting control (via a push/pull switch) so the humbucker can also be used as a single-coil pickup.

    Epiphone Rock Solid Hardware 
    Lee Malia’s Explorer Custom Artisan features stylish gold hardware including premium 14:1 ratio die-cast machine heads with "tulip" buttons, Epiphone straplocks, plus Epiphone’s road worthy exclusive non-rotating, heavy duty output jack with a metal output jack plate. Set up and intonation is easy thanks to the classic combo of a LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece. The black Explorer pickguard has a white 3-way pickup selector switch. A custom gigbag and a Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by Lee Malia are also included.

    Lifetime Warranty
    The Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan Outfit comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s legendary 365/24/7 Customer Service.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    First of all, AMS delivery was a day early. And the guitar, in my opinion is very nice. Fit and finish is very good. The balance of the guitar is awesome. But the pickup combination is pretty sweet. Through my old Peavy amp this guitar sounds great. Very good sustain. And I was able to go from heavy crunch with the humbucker to a great mild tone with the P90. And am still experimenting with the combinations of sounds that this instrument can produce. I'm not going to change a thing. I like this guitar just the way it is. If you are a explorer guy you should check this one out. The only downside to the package is the cheesy gig bag. A guitar of this quality definitely belongs in a hard case. So plan on that if you buy one.
