LTD. ED. LZZY HALE SIGNATURE EPIPHONE EXPLORER

Epiphone, a leader in affordable professional instruments, proudly welcomes LZZY HALE of Halestorm to their Signature Artist family. The “Ltd. Ed. Lzzy Hale Signature Explorer Outfit” features a classic Explorer in an Alpine White gloss finish, Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers, Grover™ Rotomatic machine heads, an Ebony fingerboard and gold hardware. A Custom Hard Shell Case and Certificate of Authenticity are also included.

For over two decades as the founder and leader of Halestorm, LZZY HALE has been called one of the greatest metal guitarists of her generation. And for her debut Signature model, LZZY worked closely with Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville to design an Explorer to match her fiery fretwork.

This guitar was something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time,” says LZZY. “In passing, they’d say, ‘We should do an Epiphone…’and I’d say ‘yeah…yeah… that would be great.’  And now here it is! Having an Epiphone signature is extremely important to me because it gives me a broad reach. I’ve had signature models before, but they’ve also been pretty much a mortgage payment. Even from a financial aspect, with my Epiphone, I get to give the gift of music and put a great guitar in the hands of people who want it. It could be someone’s first guitar, but it’s not something you’ll ever have to upgrade. This a real guitar and it feels like home to me. What I love about an Explorer is when you see someone playing one, you know they’re going to rock. It has those edges to it. I always feel like a rock star with my Epiphone.”

The Ltd. Ed. Lzzy Hale Signature Explorer Outfit has a Mahogany body with an Alpine White gloss finish with multi-layer black and white binding and a gold metallic pickguard. The Mahogany neck has a Custom “C” profile made to LZZY’s specifications, an Ebony fingerboard with block inlays, medium jumbo frets, a GraphTechTM nut and a traditional Explorer headstock with a vintage Epiphone logo in gold. LZZY’s Explorer is powered by Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO™ Humbuckers that have the tonal characteristics of classic 1950s humbuckers, but instead use Alnico V magnets with a slightly higher output for a more modern sound.
