    I think I remember entering a contest on Comedy Central(?) for the Explorer, but Snow White I haven't seen yet.

    That Thunderhorse looks really nice. I'd like it even more with a black headstock instead of a white one...

    Am I the only one thinking that a cartoon band just got Gibson signatures?

    Then thinking there's hope for me?

    Besides...Murderface is the lead songwriter....

    I have a Gibson Thunderhorse. Did not buy it cuz of the show, bought it cuz it is a silverburst explorer with full body and neck binding and it doesn't have a bunch of crap on it to make it look like someone else's guitar...well it didnt ....now it looks like mine after a pickguard customization and a phat cat thrown in the neck :)

    I dig the v a lot. Not so much the explorer. I don't know how I feel about the chosen names for these things. I feel like Thunderhorse and snow falcon should be characters on lord of the rings or something haha

    Epiphone posted a new video of Brandon Small with the Epiphone Thunderhorse today, but he says "no date yet - Spring."

    Brendon Small Reveals The Epiphone Thunderhorse at NAMM

    Well, they are from a cartoon :)

    Thanks for the link and info. I hope it doesn't get pushed back constantly like the Prophecy did. Now I just have to choose if I want this or the Prophecy :(.

    Never heard of phenolic, but it still hasn't turned me off from the guitar. Would like some more info on phenolic though.

    Edit: apparently it's also known as micarta. It's a hard laminate.

    From what I've read it is a synthetic material that is hard and real smooth and glossy. I haven't read too much of its tonal characteristics, but I'd prefer it to have real wood.

    I'd prefer ebony as well, but I'm not nessesarily opposed to micarta either. Apparently there are some Martin acoustics with micarta fretboards so ill have to see if I can find one next time I'm in Guitar Center.
