Overview

The often-copied body of the Gibson Explorer with Tremolo Electric Guitar is solid mahogany for a fat and punchy sound, while the 496R Hot Ceramic and 500T Super Ceramic humbuckers sizzle and snarl with aggressive authority. The addition of a full-on Floyd Rose tremolo takes this axe from legendary to other-wordly. Features include a 22-fret obeche fingerboard with dot inlays and Grover machine heads. Made in the USA. Includes Gibson hardshell case.

Nice guitar but set up poorly from the factory.

Comments about Gibson Limited Run Explorer with Tremolo Electric Guitar:

This is a striking all-white Explorer with an Original Floyd Rose Trem. It plays great and, of course, tuning stability is excellent. This guitar is capable of some really nice hard rock/metal tones due in no small part to the really hot 500T pickup in the bridge. It does not excel at cleaner tones - it tends to be a little muddy in my opinion. I previously owned an Explorer with a maple top (similar to a Les Paul construction) and that guitar had a brighter tone which was noticeable when playing cleaner tones. My only gripe is the way this guitar arrived from Gibson: the guitar was tuned to Eb. When I tuned the guitar to standard pitch, the trem had to be readjusted - and there was barely enough adjustment left in it to get it level again. I almost had to go with heavier springs. Overall, I'm very happy with this guitar.
