The 2019 Gibson Explorer Tribute Electric Guitar is bad to the bone – oh, and the special satin ebony finish and black chrome plated hardware are just a couple of special extras that make this guitar extra mischievous! Just one look and the first impression reveals a commanding presence! One listen will make it abundantly clear - Gibson has created a new Explorer that’s equal parts tradition and modern performance. The all-black color scheme. The Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners. The iconic ‘hockey-stick’ style headstock. Add in the sound of scorching Gibson Dirty Fingers pickups and you’ll be absolutely ready to rock!
Everything about the Gibson Explorer can be traced back to 1957 and 1958. Inspired by new manufacturing trends, automobile designs, architecture, and modernist art, the minds at Gibson created a guitar unlike any other! You could say that the Explorer was a bit ahead of its time, but we’re glad that it was. All it took was a little bit of extra time before the guitar found its way into the hands of the next generation of rebellious rockers and shredders on the scene during the 1970s and 80s.
And the Explorer hasn’t looked back even for a moment, the 2019 Gibson Explorer Tribute is the latest exciting chapter!
