Seller notes: Bass is in full working order, although it has seen a lot of action by the guys in Fightstar, gigged regularly and played at home. At some point the the headstock was cracked in half but has been fixed back together and is solid. The strap lock has been repositioned to the neck plate area for better stability as on Gibson basses. The bass various dings, scratches and the back of the neck has split in the finish near the bottom but doesn't effect playability. But then this kind of wear is what you would expect from a Rock Star Guitar. The bass is fully set up and complete and has been set up by a professional guitar tech.

Gibson Epiphone Explorer Bass Guitar used by Charlie Simpson of FIGHTSTAR/ Busted fame. The Instrument was used in the video for Palahniuk's Laughter (see link below) and on tour. This was hand decorated by Charlie who put the Neon Genesis writing from the Manga film on the side and the cool symbol on the pickguard. The headstock was broken at a Fightstar gig and re attached by the band then given to a fan after a gig. The guitar plays and sounds great with a nice low action. Obviously plenty of cosmetic signs of use but all give it character. A nice piece of memorabilia that you could be playing in no time at all and a genuine rock star guitar. Sold as seen. The bass is also unusual in that it's the only bass Charlie plays in a Fightstar video as normally he plays guitar and in the video below he choses to rock his trusty explorer bass.
