Epiphone Lee Malia Signature Explorer Custom Artisan SKB Hardcase P-94 Single Coil 84T-LM Humbucker

$ 1399.00

Mint condition. Mint SKB case with keys included!  Sounds amazing!…(check out the video at the end.) Guitar really sits in the playing position sweet spot due to the offset placement of the strap-pins that Epiphone did at the factory.   Neck feels really comfortable too. Guitar weighs in at a light 7.6 pounds. Only played gently a few times. Not even any pick marks on the pick guard.  Hate to part with this one. Guitar is already packed with care and all delicate corners/angles have been well-padded for shipping. Will ship within 24 hours of sale.  (Does not come with COA)

OVERVIEW

The classic Explorer profile with Lee’s signature tone and style.

Bring Me the Horizon is one of the fastest rising music groups in the world and Lee Malia has emerged as one of the leading guitarists of his generation. Like Lee’s Epiphone Les Paul Artisan, the new Ltd. Ed. Lee Malia Explorer Custom Artisan Outfit features another classic “Kalamazoo” era design—the Explorer–in a beautiful Walnut finish with Ivory and Black binding on the body and headstock along with an “Artisan” floral inlay in pearloid on a smooth Torrefied Composite fingerboard. The Mahogany body has a Maple top to add bite to the tone. The Mahogany neck has a “1959” Rounded “C” profile with a 24.75 in. scale length. The black Explorer-style headstock has a pearloid “Epiphone” logo in ’60s era typeface with a “Lee Malia” signature inlay on the neck.

Gibson USA Pickups with Coil-Splitting 
To get his distinctive tone, Lee Malia prefers the combination of a sensitive P-94 single coil pickup for rhythm and a powerful Gibson 84T-LM humbucker for leads. In between the two pickups under the pickguard is a “Dummy Coil” that cancels the “hum” when in single-coil mode. Three traditional “TopHat” knobs with metal inserts control neck volume, bridge volume, and master tone. The bridge volume also serves as a coil-spitting control (via a push/pull switch) so the humbucker can also be used as a single-coil pickup.

Epiphone Rock Solid Hardware
Lee Malia’s Explorer Custom Artisan features stylish gold hardware including premium 14:1 ratio die-cast machine heads with “tulip” buttons, Epiphone straplocks, plus Epiphone’s road worthy exclusive non-rotating, heavy duty output jack with a metal output jack plate. Set up and intonation is easy thanks to the classic combo of a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece. The black Explorer pickguard has a white 3-way pickup selector switch. A custom gigbag and a Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by Lee Malia are also included.
