Finally - A Smaller Body Explorer with Updated Features! Since it's introduction in 1958, the Explorer's angular body shape
and aggressive looks has been a of favorite of rockers all over the world. Epiphone puts a new twist on this classic with th e
NEW Explorer-GT. Featuring a slightly smaller and lighter-weight Mahogany body (about 85%), this new GT is the most
comfortable Explorer we've ever played. But don't let the smaller size fool you! This is a full-on, in your face rockin'
machine with all the same features (and more!) that you've come to expect from an Explorer. High-Out Ceramic Pickups:
Providing the sizzle and snarl that you can only get from humbuckers is a 650R (neck) and 700T (bridge) pickup combo.
You'll be amazed how these U.S.A. designed pickups with their high-output magnets add more highs with increased
definition and no muddiness. Slightly over-wound, the hotter 700T bridge pickup is smooth but can give you a little extra
scream or growl when you need it while never losing its rich combination of enhanced lows and crystal clear highs. Cool
New Electronics: Always an innovator, Epiphone has equipped the GT with a patent-applied-for combination Master Tone
and Kill Switch. Operating just like an ordinary tone pot, if you push or "tap" it down it acts as a KILL switch muting all output
signal and creating a cool effect (think Buckethead!) when combined with distortion. The Whole GT Package: Other
features include Epiphone's patent-applied-for LockTone(TM) tune-o-matic/stopbar combination for re-stringing ease and
increased sustain and of course, their Limited Lifetime Warranty with 24/7/365 Customer Service. Top it all off with a
Rosewood fingerboard upgraded with pearloid parallelogram inlays and 22 medium-jumbo frets. With this Explorer's
cutaway design and a contoured, recessed bolt neck, all 22 of those frets are easy to access and it's SlimTaper(tm) neck
profile make it comfortable and fast. Wrap it all up in a thin "worn" black finish that feels vintage all with a price tag t hat any
guitarist can afford and you've got a NEW Epiphone classic made just for you!
