Overview

The Limited Run Holy Explorer Electric Guitar from Gibson USA is a prime example of Gibson's imaginative spirit. It combines the traditional features of the original Explorer design of the late 1950's with a modern, more intense look and character, featuring a mahogany body, traditional "drooping" headstock, hybrid neck profile, and carefully carved openings in the body. This design serves more than just the guitar's radical appearance, making it one of Gibson's lightest production guitars to date.

The neck on the Holy Explorer retains the traditional characteristics of the original Explorer neck with a 24-3/4" scale, 22 frets, rosewood fingerboard, and figured acrylic dot inlays. It upholds its reputation as one of the world's fastest guitar necks by delivering the same access to the guitar's higher register of notes.

The Holy Explorer also sports a single volume control perfectly positioned for swells, and two of Gibson's hottest humbucker pickups”a 496R in the neck and a 500T in the bridge. Combined, these two ceramic humbuckers deliver one of the most powerful, crunching tones available on any Gibson, making the Holy Explorer suitable for a wide variety of musical styles.

Other Holy Explorer features include six in-line mini Grover tuners, which deliver smooth tuning action and accuracy; Gibson's traditional stop bar tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge; and a customized Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity. It also includes a Gibson USA hardshell case with a white silkscreened logo. The Holy Explorer is limited to just 350 guitars.
