Overview

With its angular, asymmetrical body and pointed headstock, the famed Gibson Explorer was light years ahead of its time when it was first introduced in 1958. The 7-String Explorer electric guitar continues that radical heritage in every way.

The most central feature of any Explorer guitar is its mahogany body, which provides players a well-balanced, weight-reduced alternative, with absolutely no compromises in tone, sustain, or performance. The neck on the Gibson Explorer has the best of both worlds”it is a hybrid between the '50s rounded contour and the '60s slim-taper profile. Other features include chrome hardware, Tune-O-Matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece, and mini Grover tuners.

The 7-String Gibson Explorer is fitted with an EMG 707 (neck position), features and an Alnico V magnet loaded wide aperture coils that beef up that low B tone and at the same time provide a more responsive super tight overall sound. The EMG 81-7 (bridge position) is its perfect compliment, working best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume and producing a razor sharp attack with incredible sustain for brilliant soloing.

The neck is great the extra seventh string is great the body is AMAZING what youd expect from Gibson...There's absolutely no reason you shouldnt buy this guitar(except it doesnt have a Floyd Rose) it's built to SHRED!And perfect for Trivium and Rusty Cooley stuff!if you have the dough for it BUY IT
