What Haworth Guitars say:
The Epiphone Gothic 1958 Explorer Electric Guitar is an awesome Explorer guitar model by Epiphone.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Epiphone Goth 58 Explorer's smooth Pitch Black satin finish, solid mahogany body with SlimTaper D profile mahogany neck and LockTone Tune-o-Matic bridge as well as the powerful Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups.
What Epiphone has to say:
Goth '58 Explorer The Goth ’58 Explorer puts a new twist on a vintage favourite with a Pitch Black colour 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.
The Goth ’58 Explorer features our Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by world famous 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.
