Epiphone Introduces the Limited-Edition Jason Hook M-4 Explorer Outfit

The signature model features Seymour Duncan humbuckers, a deeper upper-body cutaway, and Hook's signature graphics.

Nashville, TN (May 8, 2018) -- Epiphone proudly welcomes Jason Hook of Five Finger Death Punch to the House of Stathopoulo’s Artist Signature series with the new Ltd. Ed. Jason Hook "M-4" Explorer Outfit. Featuring Seymour Duncan Humbuckers, Locking Grover Locking mini-Rotomatics, a Premium Custom Gigbag, and a hand-signed COA in a presentation binder.

For nearly a decade, Jason Hook’s explosive solos for Five Finger Death Punch have helped propel the band to new heights and a regular spot atop the Billboard charts with every release. And from the very beginning, Hook has counted on an Explorer to deliver his trademark combination of melody and power.

“It’s a rock solid guitar and totally meets up to my expectations,” Jason Hook told Epiphone.com. “It sounds great. It was a dream to have a signature guitar. You can have your cake and eat it, too.”

The new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Jason Hook "M-4" Explorer Outfit features a deeper upper body cutaway, which makes for easier access to all 22 Super Jumbo-sized frets and an angled scarf across the top of the body to give players a comfortable arm “rest.” The Pure White finish has Hook’s signature M-4 “Sherman” graphics. The “M-4” is powered by legendary Seymour Duncan pickups with a SH-1 Vintage ’59 humbucker in the neck position and a SH-4 "JB" humbucker in the bridge or lead position. The SH-1 Vintage ’59 is inspired by Seth Lover’s original P.A.F.-style pickups but with a slightly scooped midrange for squeal-free performance.
