Overview

With its angular, asymmetrical body and pointed headstock, the famed Gibson Explorer was light years ahead of its time when it was first introduced in 1958. The 7-String Explorer electric guitar continues that radical heritage in every way.

The most central feature of any Explorer guitar is its mahogany body, which provides players a well-balanced, weight-reduced alternative, with absolutely no compromises in tone, sustain, or performance. The neck on the Gibson Explorer has the best of both worlds”it is a hybrid between the '50s rounded contour and the '60s slim-taper profile. Other features include chrome hardware, Tune-O-Matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece, and mini Grover tuners.

The 7-String Gibson Explorer is fitted with an EMG 707 (neck position), features and an Alnico V magnet loaded wide aperture coils that beef up that low B tone and at the same time provide a more responsive super tight overall sound. The EMG 81-7 (bridge position) is its perfect compliment, working best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume and producing a razor sharp attack with incredible sustain for brilliant soloing.
