Comments about Epiphone Goth 1958 Explorer Electric Guitar:

If you are looking for an explorer check this one out. It's everything that you'll need in the explorer line. Epiphone does a Great job on this instrument, looks,feel,sound and, playability it's all there. They must have spent some time on the neck because the frets and neck feel smooth as glass. I did some very minor adjustments as to lower the action and, tweak the truss rod very little. Intonation was perfect. I replaced the stock strap button on the top with a Dunlop strap lock mainly because when standing there is a fairly sharp bend in the strap not a straight pull like most guitars and, I thought it could possibly come off while playing at any rate it's cheap insurance for peace of mind. The all black finish and, hardware are very cool and, not having fret markers gives the neck a very clean look but, there are side markers so don't worry about knowing where you're going while jamming out. The XII on the 12th fret is very distinctive also. I tuned it up plugged it into my amp and, gave it a good workout, clean and overdrive sounds were right on, the mini Grover tuners never faltered and, stayed in tune perfectly. I highly recommend this instrument for anybody wanting an explorer model.

Brutal Metal

By Toki

from New York

Comments about Epiphone Goth 1958 Explorer Electric Guitar:

This is a brutal guitar to play brutal metal. Think Hetfield and the guys from Dethklok. But alas, no EMGs. I think it is one of the better made Epiphones. Clean, well-balanced and easy to play. The neck is wide, and looks cool without the face markers. Relatively light for the size. Again, everything is top-notch but why no EMGs?

Well metal

By CHAS

from Coventry, UK

Comments about Epiphone Goth 1958 Explorer Electric Guitar:

With the exception of the name on the headstock, there is (in my opinion) no need to choose a Gibson over this. It's a very light guitar with a very heavy sound and it looks ace as well. The shape, the first thing that draws you to it, is as perfect as always and the matte paintjob gives it a lot of character. Add to that the 12th fret inlay and you've got a really nice looking guitar. For playability, this is one of the better guitars I've used. The neck is nice and thin and the scale is just perfect for me; you can move around so quickly on the fretboard. Also it didn't give me trouble when tuning it to B and the sound that comes out of it (dependant of course on amp settings) is fantastic. As far as I'm concerned, if you're a fan of the Explorer but can't afford the Gibson, look no further - the value for money is amazning.
