This is a 2021 Epiphone Brendon Small Ghosthorse Explorer. It is in excellent condition and comes with original case and tremolo bar. Specs include two Burstbucker pickups and a Floyd Rose tremolo. SlimTaper mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard. Grover tuners and binding on neck and body.
Guitar is nearly mint with only one mark on the edge (see pics) and perhaps some incidental scuffs. Weight is 9 pounds, 4 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

Metalocalypse-creator and modern guitar master, Brendon Small has unleashed a phantom firestorm of equine insanity with the Epiphone Brendan Small Ghosthorse Explorer! The Ghosthorse Explorer riffs on its classically inspired body shape, featuring push-pull pots for splitting the coils of its two brawny BurstBucker pickups. Ripping hot leads? Laying down heavy slabs of power chords? You’re covered — this hard rocker is a horse for every course! The Brendon Small Ghosthorse Explorer boasts a resonant mahogany body, 1960s SlimTaper mahogany neck with a bound ebony fingerboard, Grover Mini Rotomatic Tuners, and a Floyd Rose tremolo for maximum horse diving action
BurstBuckers serve up old-school hard rock and heavy metal sounds
The Brendon Small Ghosthorse Explorer owes its brutal, bone-rattling tone to a duo of Gibson USA BurstBucker pickups. Fashioned after Seth Lover’s iconic PAF pickups, BurstBuckers have a solid low-end, harmonically dense mid-range, and clear, articulate highs. Pushed hard into a tube amp, BurstBucker’s churn out the time-tested crunch tones and thick distortion that is a staple of old-school hard rock and heavy metal.
Coil-tap switches expand the Ghosthorse’s tonal offerings
To put his own twist on the original Gibson Explorer design, Brendon Small equipped the Ghosthorse Explorer with two push/pull volume knobs for coil-splitting the BurstBuckers. Keep it chunky with the ‘buckers for rhythm playing, then flip over to single-coils for stinging leads. The added tonal flexibility makes the Ghosthorse Explorer an excellent stage guitar, letting you switch up your sound in an instant!
Smooth and fast 1960s SlimTaper “D” Neck Profile
Introduced in the 1960s, the SlimTaper “D” profile neck was speedier than its 1950s predecessor but still had enough heft for comfortable chording. The Ghosthorse Explorers’s mahogany neck features this satisfying profile, and it’s capped with a bound ebony fingerboard, 24 jumbo frets, and a Galaktikon-inspired spaceship inlay at the twelfth fret.
