Explore an Original

Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality, and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson’s legacy through accuracy, authenticity, and attention to detail.

The Gibson Explorer was way ahead of its time when it was introduced in 1958, and only 19 were shipped that year, but it has become very popular in the years since then. The classic vintage Explorer features have been carefully recreated in this Historic Reissue model. Featuring an ABR-1 bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece, a korina body, Custombucker pickups, korina neck, Indian rosewood fretboard, two volume and one tone control with CTS pots and a phone book capacitor, gold hardware, Kluson tuners, and a 4-ply black pickguard. A historically accurate case is included, with a classic brown exterior and plush pink interior.
