A pretty radical and futuristic design when introduced in 1958, the Explorer is still one of the most visually stunning instruments on the market today. But it's not all about looks. Explorers are built to rock with powerful tone. This iconic, revolutionary, all Mahogany, body shape combines time-tested tonewoods with some of the hottest pickups in Gibson's arsenal to produce blistering tone, suitable for removing paint from the arena walls. And it just wouldn't be an Explorer without the angled headstock backed with Grover Mini-tuners. A must-have for the guitarist who, like Gibson, blends innovation with tradition.
