The modern Gibson Explorer embodies all the trail-blazing style of the 1958 original, from its eye-catching angular body and hockey stick headstock to its red-hot rock appeal. The Gibson Explorer’s resonant mahogany body and comfortable rosewood-topped SlimTaper mahogany neck offer a memorable playing experience night after night. Under the hood of the Gibson Explorer, twin Burstbucker pickups deliver a tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs to cater to rock and well beyond. Meanwhile, Grover Mini Rotomatic tuners give this guitar rock-solid intonation for the stage and studio. Spice up your guitar collection with the modern Gibson Explorer!
