The Ken Lawrence Explorer Guitar owner: James Hetfield
 
James Hetfiled is the rhythm guitarist, co-founder, main composer and lead singer in the heavy metal band Metallica. Metallica was set up in Oct 1981, since that time, Metallica has won 9 Grammy Awards, and released 9 studio albums, three live albums, four extensive plays and twenty-four singles. In 2009, Hetfield was recorded No. 8 in Joel McIver's book The 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists, and rated No. twenty four in the 100 Greatest Metal Vocalists after beating Parader. James favors Explorer guitar so much that he has employed Explorer guitars from Gibson to ESP successively, and he has been the primary endorser for ESP since 1980. James' main custom-made guitar is the Explorer specifically manufactured by Ken Lawrence.
 
 
  
Ken Lawrence Explorer Guitar Maker: Ken Lawrence
 
Ken Lawrence Musical Instruments was established by Ken Lawrence in 1986 for bass and guitar custom design business. Except remaining as a luthier, Ken Lawrence is also a bassist, he commenced building electric guitar in Moonstone Guitars in 1981 and 5 years later he setup his personal business. Ken Lawrence primarily hand crafts instruments, so the handling usually takes him one full year to accomplish an instrument, and the yearly producing quantity is 20 to 25, so the cost is fairly high-priced. And he also custom makes guitars for Hetfield and his band mates from American music band Metallica. What he made for James is fundamentally based upon ESP explorer, but the headstock and fingerboard inlays differ somehow.
 
 
 
 
Features of Our Ken Lawrence Explorer Guitar Replica
 
Over years many buyers consulted the Ken Lawrence explorer guitar with us, maybe because it's truly hard to find, and the period to customize one is too long or possibly the price is too large. Anyway, we then commenced to study and copy this instrument. We even bought a utilized Ken Larence explorer at a high price, so we've got all precise specs and measurements of this unique guitar! The largest problem to replicate this instrument lies at some specific woods which we make contact with numerous wood providers and finally found some hard woods of tropical rain forest. Our Ken Lawrence Explorer Guitar Replica was made of rosewood fretboard, mahogany neck and body.
 
 
 
To make a best replica, we bought professional drawings and meticulously studied this electric guitar, thus we can grasp every details of processing technique. Besides, they are absolutely 100% hand-mades, strictly adhere to the original. 
 
 
Some customers come here complaining about other sellers' ken lawrence guitars, due to they do not enquire and ask for detail pictures carefully before they order the items. However, it's too late to repent after recieve the guitar. Here, we just emphasize two important points. One is about the headstock shape, Compared to other sellers, our Ken Lawrence explorer is the first and the only correct replica. Their headstock is twice larger than ours,that is to say, their headstock is twice larger than the original, let alone other aspects
 
 
The other is about processing method. Most cheaper guitars out there use a veneer technology, which would save lots of time and cost. What that means is that instead of an actual substantial piece, they cut the wood very thinThis gives the guitar a nice appearance, but it won’t have the tonal impact of an actual top!!! A veneer is a real piece, just cut very thin for cost purposes. The best way to tell if it is veneered is to follow the grain from a flat surface, like the top, to an adjoining surface, like the edge. If the edge shows the end grain from the top, it is solid. If not, likely veneered. 
 
 
 
 
But it is different with the original guitar, which features a mahogany body with a quilted top. What we use is exactly the same with the original guitar. According to my knowledge, we are the only and the first manufacturer to adopt this top technology. It needs an exquisite level of craftsmanship.
 
 
 
EMG is typically used, EMG-81 in bridge and EMG-60 in neck. However we offer far more selections on pickups selection, except the actual EMG pick-ups which we also bought for your requirements, Wilkinson pick-ups is exactly what we strongly recommended because of its high quality and inexpensive price. It can save you a lot funds!! The Wilkinson pickups with the same specifications as EMG pickups are considerably less expensive than the latter!!
 
 
Ken Lawrence Explorer Guitar Vs ESP Explorer
 
Similarity: Mahogany body and neck, 22 frets, Black hardware (tune-o-matic bridge and stop wiring board and tuners), one volume control.
 
Difference: Ken Lawrence Explorer is one of James Hetfield's Favorite guitars. Most oftenly used live for ballad songs and ocassionally Master Of Puppets. You'll be able to find the James Hetfield Ken Lawrence explorer in video Cunning Stunts. In fact, James Hetfield utilized this instrument in a lot of audio, like Mashup Denny's Playlist. Some people think ESP crafted the Ken Lawrence Explorer, but in fact it was produced by Ken Lawrence. It has the ESP Mx body shape ,but the cool 3+3 headstock is designed by Ken Lawrence himself.
 
  
 
Only the finest woods and hardware go into this masterpiece. We comply with Ken Lawrence Explorer specs strictly. So our Ken Lawrence Explorer Guitars Replica are nearly the same with the original one. All in all, our guitars are quality assured and cost-effective and can save much money for you.
