any standard metric bridge in chrome will fit the explorer, most likely.

www.allparts.com has a bunch of bridges.

you have to match your specs.. for the size of the post.. the size of the bushing.. the string spacing..


Here's a korean chrome bridge:

Already vi some photos in google but I do not know if it is original or if somebody modified the guitars. Already I obtained the parts that had cited me and already I made the white shield of a layer, tuning original I I find that they had to be of the mark jinho Korea I already I am seeing p to also buy ones chromed of these[confused]

Epiphone does not make an Explorer with chrome hardware. I don't believe they have made one in the past either. I personally got a Gothic Explorer and put chrome hardware on it myself:




A white pick guard is next [confused]
