Product Description

One glance and you know instantly: this is a rock'n'roll powerhouse of a guitar. The 2017 Explorer T delivers raw power, scorching tones, and extreme sustain, all wrapped in an iconic design that's as rebellious as rock itself. And beneath the Explorer's aggression and brute sonic force lie the subtler qualities that make a Gibson such a special guitar: superb playing comfort, extreme speed, and the confidence of utmost quality. Crafted in the image of the original radical Explorer body style, using select solid mahogany, and loaded with two of Gibson's fiercest high-gain humbuckers and top-quality hardware, the Explorer T is truly a piece of rock weaponry that can do it all. The guitar is delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

What is your opinion of this product?
I have been a Gibson guy for 25 years (not a purist but a huge fan) up until 2014 when the auto tuners, adjustable nut, and other gimmicky junk came out on the Gibsons-I tried a few guitars and was not impressed, so I bought other brands the last couple of years. I purchased the 2017 model Explorer T(can't believe Gibson put these in a gig bag last year)which came with a beautiful vintage style case, strap and cool multi-tool. After adjusting the neck, putting on new strings and setting the action to my liking, the guitar plays really well. The pickups are great, nice and chunky sounding. The balance is awesome and the guitar is lighter than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise (My LP Custom is a back breaker). I would have given it 5 stars if there wasn't some wood chipped off the end of the fingerboard past the 22nd fret (cosmetic only)-I can live with that but QC should have been better. It sounds great clean or overdriven-useful for many music styles.

Top of the line guitar, with a stunning look. The guitar plays very well and looks even better in person, I highly recommend getting one, well worth the price. Beautiful finish and very lightweight for jamming out, stays in tune very well, and feels good to play sitting or standing.
