Epiphone Introduces Brendon Small ‘Thunderhorse’ Explorer (1)

Epiphone Introduces Brendon Small 'Thunderhorse' Explorer -

Epiphone, one of the world's most prestigious and innovative instrument makers, introduces the Ltd. Ed. Brendon Small "Thunderhorse" Explorer Outfit, a one-of-a-kind signature guitar custom made for two of the most eclectic and challenging artists working today, Brendon Small and Dethklok.

Brendon Small is the co-creator and comedic-and musical-imagination behind Dethklok, the virtual metal band featured in the hit animated program Metalocalypse, produced by Adult Swim. Epiphone and Small have collaborated on the Epiphone Brendon Small "Thunderhorse" Explorer Outfit creating the ultimate 6-string weapon packed with exclusive features only found on an Epiphone.

The "Thunderhorse" is powered by seriously cool Gibson USA BurstBucker™ pickups. The neck pickup features a Gibson USA BurstBucker™-1 humbucker and the bridge position features a Gibson USA BurstBucker™-2 humbucker that is slightly overwound to emulate the legendary hand-wound PAF humbuckers produced at the historic Gibson-Epiphone factory inKalamazoo,Michiganin the late 50s. BurstBucker™ pickups are made with unpolished magnets and non-potted coils, just like the originals for a combination that gives players absolutely one-of-a-kind sound. And, you'll get even more power from the BurstBucker™ experience thanks to push/pull coil-tapping controls on the Neck Volume and Bridge Volume knobs, also an Epiphone exclusive.

The "Thunderhorse" comes with a premium-fitted custom gigbag with three "Dethklok" stickers that you'll only get from Epiphone. And of course, the Ltd. Ed. Brendon Small "Thunderhorse" Explorer Outfit also comes with the Epiphone/Gibson Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service. The Ltd. Ed. Brendon Small "Thunderhorse" Explorer Outfit retails for U.S. MSRP $999.00. The Ltd. Ed. Brendon Small "Thunderhorse" Explorer Outfit will be available beginning in May 2013.
