When the Explorer was introduced in 1958, it was ahead of its time in that it was not accepted by the more conservative guitarists and simply flopped. It was only the hippies of the late sixties who took it up and revived it. The Asian Gibson subsidiary Epiphone has taken up the models of the US giant and presents them at reasonable prices to make them available to less well-heeled or simply budget-conscious musicians and fans.The 84 designers keep close to the American specifications in terms of construction and choice of woods. The EMG 81s have long been popular with musicians of heavier styles. They produce a lot of pressure and are best suited to deliver the right sounds to the right audience's ears.
