NU X-PLORER

BILD

Story: My debut as a guitarmaker. I was tired of the compromises which must be made if one purchases an instrument of the rod. Since I am a fan of Metallicas James Hetfield, I have adhered to his Ken Lawrence Explorer a little at the design! The shaping is completely independent and slimmer, though. Who knows the Explorer has to know these sleek beauties tug at the belt very much. Therefor I hollowed the corpus and achieved a refreshingly low weight with that. This semi-hollow-body has been made to contribute his to the replete Sound, the clear tone and the singing sustain. The pickups I assembled are James’ common pickups and provide a sound like hell. In the end I with this piece i created a guitar as it is perfect to me! I have introduced myself to Boris Dommenget with this guitar with the result that I started working in his company. The high requirements of this professional ennoble this instrument. Model: NU X-Plorer
