    Product Description

    The Explorer 2016 HP is the much-anticipated, modern incarnation of the original Explorer. It boasts a remarkable set of premium, high performance features, overlaid on a solid mahogany body for a fat, punchy, well-defined sound. A new and exclusive fast-access heel, developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup, allows unprecedented access to the high notes - which, combined with the new soloist neck width, provides the fastest-playing Explorer you’ve ever experienced.

    Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. A 496R Hot Ceramic pickup in the neck position and a 500T Super Ceramic in the bridge sizzle and snarl with aggressive authority, while genuine mother of pearl inlays add to the guitar’s premium styling.

    An archetypal rocker ahead of its time, the 2016 Explorer HP nails 21st century performance with a SlimTaper neck profile, the new soloist neck width, and a fast-access heel. A zero-fret titanium nut super-low action for unprecedented speed, and it’s all perfected by a precise Plek and hand-finished setup for unrivaled playability.

    With rich, resonant mahogany as its foundation the Explorer HP sizzles through a 496R Hot Ceramic humbucker in the neck position and a 500T Super Ceramic in the bridge, for utterly crushing rock tones. A titanium nut and titanium bridge saddles optimize clarity and sustain.

    Innovation and craftsmanship reveal themselves from every angle, with G-Force automated tuners, a thicker one-piece fingerboard with hand-rubbed oil finish, genuine mother-of-pearl inlays, upgraded plastics, and an exclusive labor-intensive hand-applied process for a smooth high-gloss nitrocellulose finish.
