Overview

With tribal graphics that suggest a prehistoric bird in flight, the still-futuristic Gibson Explorer Electric Guitar provides the beefy resonance for any rockin' adventure. The set mahogany neck's ebony fretboard and '60s profile makes it easy to navigate any tricky note passages. 2 high-output Gibson humbuckers with ceramic magnets supply all the raw power you'll need. The 500T Super Ceramic bridge pickup is extremely hot with increased sustain and definition. The 496R Hot Ceramic humbucker is an aggressively hot neck pickup that goes perfectly with the 500T. The tremolo bridge provides the range of expression that modern guitarists crave.

The Gibson Tribal Explorer is limited to just 350 electric guitars, and each one comes with a special Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity and a black hardshell case with white interior and silkscreened Gibson USA logo.

Not as great as it looks

Comments about Gibson Limited Run Tribal Explorer Electric Guitar:

The guitar is fine as long as you dont use the whammy bar. I saw it in GC and loved it. I sat down and played it for like an hour. When I used the whammy bar to do pull ups and divebombs, the strings went completely out of tune. The guitar would have been much better if it had a locking nut.

Gibson Fail... Yet again.

By Isaac

from Pittsburg, CA

Comments about Gibson Limited Run Tribal Explorer Electric Guitar:

I am posting this review by simply looking at the picture of this guitar. I have only seen Gibson Fail at this type of guitar twice now. I do not know if there are any more. Here is why i think Gibson has failed yet again. I really like explorers. The shape, feel, and playability of the Gibson Explorer has always had my attention. The only thing i ever wanted on it, was a Tremolo. So Gibson comes with the Gibson Explorer Shred X Guitar which is a straight flat black Gibson Explorer with a Kahler Tremolo on it. Now the reason why that guitar fail is because the Shred X comes with the Kahler Tremolo but it does not have a locking Nut and without the locking nut, if you use your tremolo, you are basically just throwing your strings out of tune. No Locking Nut ruins the purpose of a Tremolo bar. Plus the Shred X was twice as much as a normal Gibson Explorer. So all it was good for is playing without using the Tremolo bar unless you want to purposely throw your strings out of tune. And here Gibson does it again with the Tribal Explorer. You are basically paying near $1,000 more for decal and a defective tremolo because what a tremolo with out a locking nut... Fail! I hope this review of mine has broadened your view and opinion on this guitar. I honestly do not recommend it unless you want to pay the extra money for the nice look of it.
