The Epiphone Limited Edition Jason Hook M-4 Sherman Explorer Outfit is the signature model of Five Finger Death Punch's lead guitarist Jason Hook. Equipped with appointments that are designed to contribute towards Hook's ferocious riffage, the M-4 Sherman boasts an impressive tonal arsenal to play with and a solid, gig-ready playing feel. Each model is supplied with a premium custom gigbag and a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity in a presentation binder.
Unique Explorer body
The asymmetric body shape of the Gibson Jason Hook M-4 is one of the most rock and roll silhouettes of any guitar. The imposing shape of the Gibson Explorer is recognisable anywhere. Designed in accordance with Hook's preferences, the elaborate lines include a unique scalloped cutaway for easier access to the upper frets, and tapered scarf for enhanced playing comfort for the picking arm. The body is constructed using solid mahogany, which establishes a rich mid-range character that springs forth with exceptional energy.
The hand-set and glue-reinforced mahogany neck is shaped to Jason Hook's custom SlimTaper profile, which sits comfortably in the hand for a freeing feel. The generous 24.75-inch scale length encourages a highly resonant response from the strings as well as upholding consistency. Married to the neck is a delightful granadilla fingerboard, which is adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The 12-inch fingerboard radius promotes lightning fast technique such as seamless string bends and sweeping arpeggios.
Powerful tonal palette
The Epiphone Jason Hook Explorer comes fully loaded with a pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers, featuring a Vintage '59 humbucker in the neck and an SH-4 "JB" humbucker in the bridge. The pickup partnership delivers a raucous energy that runs the gamut from vintage to modern metal power. The 3-way Epiphone all-metal pickup selector switch allows you to rapidly switch between pickups with ease. Each pickup features an independent volume control as well as a master tone pot. Black top hat knobs with meal inserts complement the Sherman body paintwork.
The headstock is home to Grover locking mini-Rotomatic tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout the most demanding of performances. The LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece partnership optimise intonation and sustain, no matter how low you tune to.
