Gibson 84' Reissue Explorer - Guitar is a reproduction of James Hetfield's (Metallica) famous explorer he used live and to create the Ride the Lightening, Master of Puppets, and And Justice For All albums. Has EMG pickups. I swapped out the black speed knobs for the chrome dome knobs James had on his axe! I looks, plays, and sounds killer! FYI that's not my blue carpet!
