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 a mahogany body using the same dimensions as the original. The Goth '58 includes a glued hand-set mahogany neck with a 24.75 inch scale, a SlimTaper™ profile. The rosewood fretboard as a 12 inch radius, a 1.68 inch nut and features a pearloid 'XII' fret marker at the 12th fret.
Goth Power Humbuckers
The power of the Goth '58 comes from our Alnico Classic™ humbuckers, which have all the subtle tonal colours and demonic growl found in original PAF humbuckers.
Pro Hardware All the Time
Like all Epiphones, the Goth '58 comes with all-metal hardware made to last a lifetime. Along with premium die-cast tuners, the Goth '58 includes our LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic StopBar bridge. The Goth '58 also features full function volume knobs for each pickup and a master tone knob, all using full-size 500K O potentiometers.
