One of Hetfield's most exquisite explorers. Used live for Nothing else matters and in the Studio. While most Doublenecks are a 12/6 string configuration, this one differs with the fact that , both necks are 6 strings and the upper neck is a standard 24.75" scale while the lower one is a 27.75" Baritone scale ,usually tuned to drop B.
Instruments like this Kenneth Lawrence doubleneck Explorer - with two six-string necks, 24.75" and 27.75" (baritone) respectively - are certainly very impressive looking creations. This particular guitar is currently being offered for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $18,250.00. The body is made from mahogany topped with premium Hawaiian Koa, and accented here and there with the same plus snakewood for the knobs and pickup rings. It certainly makes for a very eye-catching instrument.
