Gibson Dethklok Thunderhorse Explorer
Brendon Small, creator of the Metalocalypse TV show, and Gibson Guitar have collaborated on the Dethklok “Thunderhorse” Explorer, a limited edition Explorer
A guitar player who graduated from the Berklee College of Music, Small says he strives to be as authentic as possible when including “guitar stuff” in Metalocalypse. When a member of fictional death metal band Dethklok shreds onscreen, the fretting hand animation is designed to be lifelike.The guitar gear featured on the show looks like the real-world item it represents.
One mainstay of the Dethklok arsenal — both on the show and when Small takes the live version on tour (with drummer Gene Hoglan, guitarist Mike Keneally and bass player Bryan Beller) — is the Gibson Explorer.
This very limited version is mostly similar to the regular Explorer model. It features two Gibson Burstbucker 2 & 3 pickups, nickel-silver alloy medium/jumbo frets, with a Silverburst finish.
