            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.

                  First of all let me just say that this is a really great guitar. Right out of the box it looks amazing! I got it with the 2 year limited lifetime warranty. The factory setup was decent, but I adjusted the string height a bit lower and raised the pickups. This guitar is up to par with the Gibson sg standard and Gibson les paul goldtop 50's tribute I have. Epiphone did a great job on this one. Great sounding pickups. Excellent finish looks like it should last a long time. Stays in tune very well. Fretboard is a resin compound material which looks amazing! Much cooler than rosewood or baked maple, and gives the guitar nice tone too. Overall great guitar. I've been playing professionally for about ten years now and would use this guitar as my main instrument.

                    The epiphone thunderhorse is a pretty nice guitar. Owning the Gibson thunderhorse, I was a little disappointed in the epiphone thunderhorse. Although its a good guitar it just doesn't come close to my Gibson version. If you don't have the Gibson thunderhorse then I would buy this guitar but if you do stick with the Gibson
