    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Brendon Small Thunderhorse Explorer Electric Guitar:

    Epiphone's ability to create excellent playing and sounding guitars at reasonable prices continues to amaze! Especially these limited edition, Custom Shop models. This one required absolutely NO tweaking of the setup, just changed strings to my particular brand and gauge. Even the intonation was dead-on perfect, something I rarely see even among the highest pruced guitars! The Gibson Burstbucker pickups really shine here, delivering a great tone at all gain levels. The coil split function (not available on the much more spendy Gibson version!) Pushes the versatility up a notch. My favorite for gigs is to run the neck pickup split and at about 8 for volume, with the bridge wide open in full humbucker mode. Then I use the middle toggle position for rhythm, bridge only for leads, and neck for cleaner/bluesier work. Playing SRV on an Explorer raises some eyebrows, but it works!
    Just a very high quality, extremely versatile guitar. Maybe not suited for your twanging country band or jazz quartet...but thats only due to its looks, it can do the tones. A tad neck heavy, but a good leather strap will keep it in place. Epiphone has come a long way lately, and is deserving of more respect than they get.

    This is a tonal beast. It can handle anything you throw at it. The play and feel are top notch. And to top it off, it looks great.

    Do keep in mind that the neck is a little thicker.

            This guitar has excellent tone. It's powerful, yet it's coil tapping makes it sing nearly as well as my Strat. Great guitar for anything.

              Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Brendon Small Thunderhorse Explorer Electric Guitar:

              I've played a lot of cheap guitars and a handful of mid-range guitars, and this surpasses them all. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful details in the craftsmanship. Everything is pristine. The tuning gears, push-pull knobs, and toggle switch all work very smoothly.

              The Gibson USA pickups sound amazing, very crisp and clear, with strong sounds when clean, lightly overdriven, or heavily distorted.

              The fretboard is perfect; there is no fret buzz, sharp frets, etc. Also, the electronics are solid, with no issues.

              The neck is a little on the thicker-side, so take that into consideration, but I find it very comfortable.

              I got this for lower tuning, and it can really get a fairly-good Dethklok sound through my Line 6 amp. However, I love it so much, I like leaving it in standard E tuning as my main guitar. I'd love to get another one, and it's well-worth the money.

              Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Brendon Small Thunderhorse Explorer Electric Guitar:

              First the negative comments:
              1.) The Thunderhorse took a bit of adjusting to get the action just right, and even so, there are a couple of places where the notes just don't ring like they should. Mostly around the 14th – 16th fret on the B and high E.
              2.) This thing is a giant chunk of wood. I bang into everything with it, mic stands, amps, waitresses, vocalists, etc.
              The good parts:
              1.) The sounds you can get from this thing are vast, sundry and useful! The coil tapping makes this guitar more versatile than I expected it to be. The Burstbuckers sound great and both pickups are very clear and useable. The switching and coil tapping give you 8 pickup configurations to help widen your tone pallet.
              2.) The neck is comfortable and fast! This guitar feels so comfortable and the neck lends itself to accuracy and speed.
              3.) It is a cool looking guitar. I get more questions and "can I hold/touch/fondle/play it" than any of my others.

              Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Brendon Small Thunderhorse Explorer Electric Guitar:

              I bought this guitar for my son for Xmas and am blown away by the overall quality! I've been playing guitar for almost 40 yrs so I know what I'm talking about. Paint, binding, fit & finish, etc. are all imacculate. Surprised to find USA pickups and real Grover tuners on an Asian guitar at this price point. Coil split functions and the gig bag are nice additional touches. Pretty decent setup right out of the box as well. Also, don't be scared away by the fingerboard material: it looks great and pretty much feels just like the ebony board that I had on my mid-70's Les Paul custom. Overall this thing competes head-on with the USA Gibsons that are marked at 2-3 times the price. There's a reason why these are continuosly on back-order. If you are a fan and/or want a solid, radical metal axe with a sick look, do not hesitate.

                  This guitar is evidence that epiphone can in fact make a guitar that satify the needs of all players and a high quality intrument. The guitar has a neck thin enough to play fast yet full enough to fill in the empty space in your hand, much like two pieces of the puzzle that fit together. The intrument is pretty solid and and will play anything you want it to.
