Overview

The Explorer has always stood as one of Gibson' most daring designs. From its debut in 1958 as part of their "modernistic" line, it has stood as an icon of just how radical electric guitar design could be. Many of the Explorer's features are widely emulated, from the original, pointy, "hockey-stick" headstock to the geometric, "Z" body shape. For it's 2019 line, Gibson takes the Explorer back to its origin, for a classic that still carries echoes of the future.

The original hard-rocking machine

For 2019, Gibson has gone with the classic all-mahogany construction version with a natural finish to accentuate the look of the wood. The rosewood fingerboard and SlimTaper neck profile are the essence of fast and smooth that hard-rocking Explorer players love, and the lightweight aluminum tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece stay true to the original. It's a form that is, in many ways, as radical as ever, and still looks futuristic 60 years after its debut.

Pickups perfect for aggressive playing

The unseen upgrade for the 2019 Explorer is in the electronics. Loaded with Gibson's renowned BurstBucker pickups. with a BurstBucker 2 in the neck and BurstBucker 3 in the bridge position. These pickups are overwound versions of the classic PAF design, meant to deliver that tone when your volume knob is rolled back a bit. Dime the knob, though, and you'll get a slightly more aggressive, hotter, more modern tone that's suited to heavier rock. 

 

The 2019 Explorer is built at Gibson's Nashville factory, using a combination of modern manufacturing tech and careful handwork by experienced master craftsmen for particularly critical jobs, ensuring excellent fit and finish so that each guitar is the best it can be before those familiar Gibson hangtags go on. From finish specialists carefully spraying the thin nitrocellulose lacquer finishes to winding pickups and hand-testing each guitar, Gibson's commitment to quality for the player is second to none.
