Comments about Gibson 2016 Limited Run Explorer Faded Electric Guitar:

Electronics are not as I expected - other than that it plays great -
I would have preferred a hard case for a guitar of this price - The gig bag is like a thick sleeping bag - not a fan of it

    Comments about Gibson 2016 Limited Run Explorer Faded Electric Guitar:

    The electronics are better than expected (push/pulls) and it is very comfortable. The specs state it comes with a gig bag, and it did, complaining about that seems futile. Buy the guitar if you can find one.
