Epiphone, the leading accessible guitar brand For Every Stage, is proud to release the new Brendon Small GhostHorse Explorer in Galaktikon Burst. The GhostHorse Explorer is created by Brendon Small--musician, writer, showrunner, director, actor, and mastermind behind the massive metal band Dethklok and the Adult Swim animated TV series "Metalocalypse"--and the luthiers at Epiphone in Nashville, TN. The Epiphone Brendon Small GhostHorse Explorer is available worldwide now at epiphone.com.


Designed by metal legend Brendon Small, the Epiphone GhostHorse Explorer electric guitar is a modified Explorer body shape with a deep cutaway, created in a custom Galaktikon Burst gloss finish. The GhostHorse Explorer features a figured maple top, a matte Ebony finished back, sides, and neck, a Floyd Rose tremolo system, and is powered by Gibson USA BurstBucker pickups. The fast-playing SlimTaper neck features a contoured heel joint for outstanding upper fret access, a bound Ebony fretboard with 24 jumbo frets, Grover Mini Rotomatic 18:1 tuners, and an Icarus spaceship medallion is on the back of the headstock, as well as the 12th fret.

The Epiphone Brendon Small GhostHorse Explorer marks Brendon's third collaboration with the luthiers at Epiphone and follows the Thunderhorse Explorer and the Snow Falcon Flying V. "I am so excited to finally put out the GhostHorse," says Brendon Small. "It's my most played guitar and so very expressive. It's just nice having another Horse in the family." Brendan Small wrote, directed, and composed the new song and video titled "GhostHorse," all while performing on his new Epiphone GhostHorse Explorer.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
