Introduced alongside the Gibson Flying V™ in 1958, the Gibson Explorer™ traveled where no man had gone before and past every guitar design that came before it. Over 60 years later, the Gibson Explorer is utilized by artists of all genres, making it one of the true classics of the guitar world.
The Antique Natural finish, all mahogany set-neck construction, rosewood fingerboard, and SlimTaper™ neck provide incredible classic looks, sound, and playability. A special set of calibrated Burstbucker 2 (neck) and Burstbucker 3 (bridge) pickups provide that perfect mix of volume, tone, and power.
