Gibson 70s Explorer - Classic White
It's back...the Gibson 70s Explorer guitar makes a welcome return to the Gibson range!
The Gibson Explorer is one of Gibson's classic alternative designs. Though originally launched in 1958, it wasn't until the mid-70s that the Explorer became a success, thanks in part to its adoption by hard rock and heavy metal guitarist - hence this 70s re-release of the classic era guitar.
Gibson has paired and all solid mahogany body, carved into that iconic Explorer angular design, and paired it with a matching Slimtaper profiled mahogany neck. The neck is topped with a 12" radius rosewood fingerboard set with 22 medium jumbo frets and dot inlays.
Powering the guitar is a pair of 70s Tribute humbuckers. Hand wired with Orange Drop capacitors and the classic 2 volume, 1 tone, and a toggle switch design, the Gibson 70s Explorer begs to be played hard and loud!
Other appointments include a Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece, 3-ply pickguard and black speed knobs.
The guitar comes complete with a Gibson hard case.
