Description

Details

The Epiphone Limited Edition Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan Outfit Guitar in Walnut finish, is the second model to be released as part of the collaboration between Epiphone and the Bring Me the Horizon guitarist. Though BMTH may be pushing boundaries with regard to their style of music, Malia's signature models have a distinctly old-school vibe about them. The laid bare finish, carefully chosen appointments, and remarkably smooth tones all combine to create an outstanding model that lends itself to a wide range of musical styles.

Classic Explorer body

Sticking with another classic, the Explorer body shape was originally released back in 1958 but was decades ahead of its time. The pointy, double-cutaway profile was a hit upon its re-release in the 1970s, when hard rock and metal guitarists adopted it as their weapon of choice. Malia's uncompromising playing style is in keeping with that hard rock and metal attitude. The body is built using mahogany, which establishes a weighty mid to low-end tonal foundation, whilst a cool maple top ensures a crisp upper-mid response. The luxurious walnut finish is coupled with a 7-layer body binding on the front and back, whilst a distinctive 4-layer black pickguard protects from unwanted scrapes and scratches.

Solid mahogany neck

Fitted to the body is a durable mahogany neck, which is shaped to the "1959 Rounded-C" profile. Paired with the neck is a torrefied composite fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with a classic "Artisan" floral pattern in pearloid. The weight distribution between body and neck is perfectly balanced, making the Explorer a joy for those who want to let fly without being impeded. The standard 12-inch fingerboard radius makes it very easy to perform seamless string bends with choking notes, and the single layer fingerboard binding guarantees smooth transition between each and every fret - as well as contributing to the cool finish.

Gibson USA pickups

The Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan is equipped with a single-coil P-94 in the bridge, and a more powerful 84T-LM in the bridge. The advantage of this setup is the subtle sensitivity of the P-94 for clean rhythm playing, whilst the 84T-LM offers an exceptionally powerful output for more aggressive lead playing. Control over the pickups is carried out between a trio of knobs: neck volume, bridge volume, and master tone. The bridge volume serves as a coil-split via a push/pull switch, to turn the humbucker into a single-coil. Between the pickups and under the pickguard, Gibson have included a "dummy coil", which cancels out any hum when in single-coil mode.

Gig-ready hardware

The classic Explorer headstock is home to premium 14:1 ratio die-cast gold machine heads with "tulip" buttons, which uphold tuning integrity with precision. Epiphone straplocks secure your guitar strap throughout the most energetic of performances, whilst Epiphone's gig-ready non-rotating, heavy duty output jack with metal output plate anchors your lead. Fitted to the body is a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece provide a seamless connection between strings and body to optimise intonation and sustain.

Included accessories

The Epiphone Limited Edition Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan Outfit Guitar in Walnut is supplied with a custom gigbag to transport your new pride and joy, whilst a hand-signed certificate of authenticity seals the deal. Each model comes with Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty, as well as Gibson's outstanding customer service.
