My favourite Explorer guitar. Walnut body with curly maple top and a 5 piece walnut neck. Tim Shaw Dirty Fingers pickups with Gold hardware and a TP 6 Stop bar. Sounds huge and does clean up as well. Really versatile guitar. Getting harder to get these days.
The body is a monster and the neck is pretty fast. The locking tuners are great for getting things a little tighter when tuning low for the dooms.
