Gibson

Description

The second of two radical designs Gibson presented in 1958, the Explorer has remained an object of yearning by players who want classic sounds and a distinctive look. The quest can end here, as this left-handed Explorer stands with the best of them. Boasting an all-mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard and loaded with tone-packed BurstBucker pickups, it delivers a full range of tone and power. It's a design that will always look modern, and always turn heads.

This left-handed Explorer includes a hardshell case.
