Unless you're a Gibson history buff, you'd never guess that their first Explorer was introduced way back in 1958. In fact, to say that this guitar model was ahead of its time would be an understatement. From its jagged, angular body design to its sharp and cutting tone, the Gibson Explorer was hugely popular with heavy metal guitar players during the '70s and '80s. Today, Gibson continues to manufacture new versions of the Explorer, and this selection provides you with plenty of variations.
Right from the beginning, the Gibson Explorer had a reputation for being extremely fun to play thanks to its killer tone, fast neck and solid electronics. The versions that Gibson builds today are no exception, and it's obvious the moment you start playing the Explorer 120th Anniversary Electric Guitar. A limited run model with an eye-catching finish and scorching BurstBucker pickups, the Gibson Explorer 120 will have your high-flying shred skills noticed visually and audibly. Additional upgrades on this axe include a bound fingerboard, Grover Kidney tuning machines, cryogenically treated frets, and it even comes with a Vintage Brown hardshell case.
Or, maybe you're interested in owning an Explorer that's designed to the specifications of a rock star - if so, then take a look at the Lzzy Hale Explorer Electric Guitar in Alpine White. As the front-woman of American hard rockers Halestorm, Lzzy's unique attitude, powerful tone and fast skills are the result of playing since she was 14 - and of course, being armed with a Gibson Explorer. What you have here is a signature model that contains everything Hale prefers in a guitar. From the '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus pickups, to its comfortable neck, high-quality locking hardware and unmatched Gibson setup, the Limited Edition Lzzy Hale Explorer is a lean, mean, sizzling machine.
