What we say:
At A Glance
The Explorer has become a truly iconic instrument. It embodies the spirit of rock and has been used by many guitarists who want a piece of this action. Such artists as Neil Young, Dave Grohl, Lzzy Hale and Gary Moore have all been seen to use the Explorer to bring their performances to life. Going back to the roots of this instrument, Gibson Custom Shop have created a great tribute to the 1958 Explorer. Being amongst the most expensive vintage instruments to buy, this is a great chance to have all the glory of an original but in a player friendly version expertly crafted by Gibson Custom Shop. The impressive quality of this instrument is present in the construction, finish, playability, tones... every aspect has been produced to a very high standard.
Features We Love:
Authentic Chunky C-Shape Neck
There is nothing quite like the feel of a traditional style neck. It feels snug in the palm and is comfortable when playing chords or moving around the neck. Not only does it keep with the historic accuracy of the guitar but it really adds to the ease of playing this instrument.
Custombucker Alnico III Pickups
Gibson have not stopped at the aesthetics but have made sure that the pickups here also perform to the same high standard as the guitar itself. Taking influence from PAF tones, they offer a warm, well balanced and full sound. This means they handle clean tones just as well as when you apply some gain.
A solid mahogany body and neck make this a guitar that is full of resonance. It feels reassuringly strong and produces a warm tone making it great for music where guitar is a central part. Featuring a walnut finish with a nitrocellulose lacquer, it is a great alternative to the more common black and white models.
