April 2, 2021 – Brendon Small may not be a name you know but if you know the band Dethklok from the animated short films “Metalocalypse” on Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim” you’ve heard his playing. Small wrote and played all of the music, including guitars on the animated TV show. Now Small has teamed up with Epiphone for the third in a series of Epiphone Brendon Small signature models. His latest signature guitar is called The Brendon Small GhostHorse Explorer.
Among other features, the guitar includes the following appointments:
- A glued-in Slim-Taper™ neck
- Twenty four frets on a bound ebony fingerboard
- A Floyd Rose™ locking tremolo
- Two volume controls with coil-tapping push-pull pots with knurled chrome knobs
- No tone control
- A contoured heel joint permitting full access to the upper frets
- Grover mini-tuners
- A flame-maple veneer top in “Galaktikon Burst” green finish
For pickups, the guitar comes with Gibson’s famous Burstbucker™ pickups with chrome covers. The veneer top is finished in a gloss while the mahogany back, side and neck are finished in satin black. An Icarus Spaceship is inlayed at the 12th fret as well as decaled on the back of the headstock.
