Epiphone Gothic Explorer PBK · Electric Guitar
The Epiphone Les Paul has never been in a darker dress. It has a non-reflective, satin black finish with black chrome hardware that perfectly brings out its sinister character. Running over its black hardware, the strings look like prison bars, while a set of Anico V Humbuckers delivers a dangerously hot tone. As if its horns weren’t already evil enough, the Gothic SG also sports a satin black finish with black hardware. Just as with the Les Paul Gothic, it has a glued-in neck as well. It features high-output Alnico V Humbuckers for achieving the typical, biting SG sound. The Gothic Flying V has a very distinctive aerodynamic body. Due to its vicious looks you would have to ask yourself if its name was derived from its actual "viscous" looks or rather from its "V" shape. Anyway, fact is that this axe has hidden powers waiting to be discovered... Evil edges, satin black finish, merciless sound- the axe for metal heroes! The Gothic Explorer delivers a crackingly heavy sound.
