Epiphone Limited Edition Jason Hook M4 Explorer Features
  • Premier Artist Signature Model by lead guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch 
  • Seymour Duncan SH-1 Vintage ’59 and SH-4 “JB” Humbuckers Super Jumbo Frets, Deep Cutaway, and Grover Locking mini-Rotomatics
  • Custom Gigbag and Hand-Signed COA in Presentation Binder 
For nearly a decade, former LA session ace Jason Hook has been the lead guitarist of Five Finger Death Punch where his explosive solos have helped propel the band to new heights and a regular spot atop the Billboard charts with every new release. And from the very beginning, Hook has counted on an Explorer to deliver his trademark combination of melody and power. 
21st Century Explorer:
The new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Jason Hook "M-4" Explorer Outfit—much like Hook himself—is all original and not your standard Explorer. The “M-4” features a deeper upper body cutaway, which makes for easier access to all 22 Super Jumbo sized frets. Hook has also added an angled scarf across top of the body to give players a comfortable arm “rest.” The Pure White finish has Hook’s signature M-4 “Sherman” graphics. The neck has a Jason Hook Custom SlimTaperTM profile with a standard 24.75” scale length, a Granadillo fingerboard with a 12” radius and pearloid “Dot” inlays. The neck is hand-set and glued and comes with a dual action truss rod with J. Hook in white on the truss rod “Bell” shaped cover. The traditional Explorer headstock has the Epiphone logo in pearloid.

Seymour Duncan Pickups:
Jason Hook chose Seymour Duncan pickups for his debut Epiphone signature model including an SH-1 Vintage ’59 Humbucker in the neck position and a Seymour Duncan SH-4 "JB" Humbucker in the bridge or lead position. The SH-1 Vintage ’59 is inspired by Seth Lover’s original P.A.F.-style pickups but with a slightly scooped midrange for squeal-free performance. The Seymour Duncan SH-4 "JB" Humbucker is known as the ultimate hod-rodded humbucker with a powerful low end, crisps details in the high-end, and an upper-midway bump for chunking heavy chords. Controls feature Black Tophat knobs with metal inserts with individual Volume controls for each pickup, a Master Tone control, and an Epiphone all-metal 3-way Toggle Switch.

Hardcore Epiphone Hardware:
The Jason Hook “M-4” features a classic LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and a Stopbar tailpiece along with an Epiphone Non-rotating Heavy Duty Output Jack. A premium custom gigbag is included along with a hand-signed COA in a presentation binder. An optional hard case is also available.

Product Review

Great Guitar.. First one I received was damaged but it was not the fault of the great folks at AMS.. They arranged for it to be picked back up the next day and I received the replacement guitar just days later.. They were absolutely great through it all and I can not speakly highly enough of their customer service.. Now getting to the guitar itself.. Its definitely worth the money.. Its plays super fast, its comfortably sitting or standing.. Quality is top notch. It comes with a certificate pf authenticity. The Seymour Duncan pick ups are well rounded, great low end with soaring highs. Don't second guess this guitar.. Buy it and enjoy.. You won't regret it

Excellent quality great features..

Product Review

Wow !!!! The deep cutaway is great going up the neck to hit those notes and bends are awesome. And the bevel cut gives you such a comfort to play for hours your forearm will love it, it's angle is perfect while playing. The custom neck is beautiful and the extra jumbo frets you can run up and down this neck so smooth and fast its perfect. And the Duncan 59 and the JB pickups? What's to say, one of the greatest combos in a guitar.The Grover mini locking tuners are a nice touch. The graphics are out of this world

This thing sounds HUGE and is crazy comfortable to play!

Product Review

This guitar sounds and feels amazing. I would recommend this to anyone who is on the fence about picking it up. The cutaway and the extra scarf on the body make it a dream to play and the pickups sound plenty mean for any style of metal or rock. The Changes that Jason Hook made to the body have definitely improved an already rock solid design.

Product Review

Really impressed with this Epi and not just the price. It arrived in one piece and with some minor adjustments to the bridge to get some string buzz out, she plays great. I love the Duncans and the tone they put out through my old Fender tube.

Well worth the money

Product Review

Its a very high quality well built guitar. The sd pickups really scream. I have been playing this non stop since I bought it for ams. I play a lot of metal and classic rock and it plays both beautifully. I would recommend if you play in b standard tuning to get bigger gauge strings but this guitar is amazing.
