The Gibson Explorer Series captures classic Explorer styling.
The Gibson Explorer's radical body shape debuted in 1958 and was almost 20 years ahead of its time. Not until the late 1970s did rock and roll's most daring guitarists embrace the Explorer, and that classic 1976 styling is captured on today's X-Plorer. Includes hardshell case.
