Overview

Fifty years ago, Gibson debuted a new series of guitars ” referred to in the 1958 catalog as the Modernistic series. Designed by Ted McCarty, they were far enough ahead of their time that the originals languished until a later generation of players enthusiastically adopted them. Fewer than 50 original Explorer guitars were shipped during 1958, making them among the most collectible guitars ever. This special 50th Anniversary 1958 Korina Explorer Electric Guitar, featuring a one-piece korina body and neck is limited to a run of 100 guitars.

A solid korina body and stopbar bridge are the primary elements of tone and sustain for this awesome axe, which you can wield handily thanks to the Gibson Explorer Guitar's player-friendly setup. A 19th fret neck joint means you can shred all the way to the highest notes on a rosewood fretboard. A tune-o-matic bridge and mini Grover tuners keep your strings spot on in tune even when you're bending the night away. All this sound is superbly telegraphed to your amp by two ceramic magnet humbuckers.

WWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW!!!

By TG(Rickey Medlocke)

from Naples, FL

THis is an awesome guitar!!! If you are wanting to rock out,this guitar will do it. After i played it i thought i was in heaven. plus and a tremolo bar on there is the best thing to do to it because you could have easier ability to do Wah-Wah without the actual pedal. So, if your into rocking hard, then get this guitar. You won't be let down!!!
