About the original James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer 

 

Best known for playing custom-made Explorer-style guitars with an EMG 81/EMG 60 set for pickups, James Hetfield received the Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer around 2006, which  was somewhat a surprise. It said that Ken went to deliver the KL Les Paul and he happened to bring along a doubleneck explorer for James to checkout. Immediately James fell in love with the guitar and wanted it right then and there! James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer is one of Hetfield's most exquisite explorers and has appeared several times in the studio and also live.  

 

 

   

About our replicated James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer

 

 

With two six-string necks, a standard 24.75" scale and a 27.75" Baritone scale, James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer has certainly very impressive looking creations. Some people were attracted by its amazing construction, but often scared by its prohibitively high price.Good news is that with best material money can buy and long time selecting and researching original guitar’s spcs, our excellent luthiers finally reproduce the James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer with their exquisite craftsmanship. The price is relatively low for most guitar collectors to accept. Some detailed information pictures are as follows.


 

  

First, our replicated James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer was built as the blueprint, both the body and the neck is same with the original guitar. However, now on the replica market, some Chinese copies are totally wrong, their headstock shape is much bigger, which is rather ugly.

 

  

Second,while most Doublenecks are a 12/6 string configuration, this James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer’s both necks are 6 strings and the neck joint style is set-in, which is also same with the original guitar.

 

 

  

Third, the original James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer features che chen cap, which is a very rare wood, and it is a noxious wood, the price of which is high too. We didn’t use the che chen cap, instead,we use the very beautiful rosewood cap, which is much more quality than the cheap guitars, you can check the pic below.

 

 

 

 Forth, it is the texture, the control cavity plate and the truss rod cover of the original James Hetfield Ken Lawrence Double Neck Explorer is made of mahogany, and the paint has satin finish, at these two point, our guitar is totally in accordance with the original guitar.
