Epiphone Gothic 1958 Explorer Electric Guitar Satin Black - EXP2PBBH1

Product Information

  • Based on vintage Explorer
  • Alnico Classic™ humbuckers
  • SlimTaper™ “D” profile neck
  • Mahogany Body

The Goth ’58 Explorer puts a new twist on a vintage favorite with a Pitch Black color finish to become the dark knight of our 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.
