It features a mahogany body and SlimTaper mahogany neck neck, Epiphone ProBuckers in the neck and bridge, LockTone tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece, Graph Tech nut and more.

Classic Design and Tonewood

The Epiphone Explorer features the same futuristic design and angular styling that appeared on the famed 1958 Gibson classic. Its resonant mahogany solidbody construction gives it impressive sustain and a punchy midrange.


SlimTaper Neck Construction for Fast Playing

The Epiphone Explorer boasts a comfortable and sleek SlimTaper mahogany neck so you can fly up and down the Indian laurel fretboard as fast as you want. The SlimTaper neck design also feels great around your hands, so you can rock all night long on any stage.


Stage-Ready Tone with Epiphone ProBuckers

The Epiphone Explore is packed with a pair of ProBucker humbucking pickups, ensuring this axe is ready to produce a hard-hitting tone on any stage. Epiphone ProBuckers are made with 18 percent nickel silver unit bases and covers—the same alloy used by Gibson at the Kalamazoo factory where the humbucker was first invented. 


Impressive Hardware
