This new 28" long-scale baritone guitar comes strung with .14-.68 strings to add even more beefy, bottom-end tones to the legendary Explorer. The body of the Gibson Explorer Baritone Electric Guitar is solid mahogany for a fat and punchy sound, while the 496R Hot Ceramic and 500T Super Ceramic humbuckers sizzle and snarl with aggressive authority. The neck is carved to a fast yet comfortable Explorer profile and measures .800" deep at the 1st fret and .850" at the 12th, with a width of 1.70" across its PLEK-cut Corian nut. Other features include a preciosa fingerboard, tune-o-matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and Grover machine heads. Made in the USA. Includes Gibson hardshell case.

Comments about Gibson Limited Run Explorer Baritone Electric Guitar:
I can't believe no one's reviewed this baby yet. Probably this is just an homage now as I doubt you will find her anyway for sale these days. Word was one I bought mine in Canada it was the last one officially listed anywhere and Gibson is not planning to release another run in Canada. The first thing I did was change the pickups to a bridge Tony Iommi and the neck to the Liquid fire (No better bridge pickup on the market, believe me). Though I will say that while I like my pickups better I do sometimes miss the P90s for their chunky sound that you can get no where else. Next I put in 72s for strings, had to cut the nut. It came with 62s which are nice but those 72s are brilliant, you get an extra wound string so it's almost like you have 4 light bass strings and two guitar strings. I bought this guitar to tune down to C# and play those c# tuning sabbath tunes. Iommi was brilliant with that tuning. The 72s are a little tight at a C#, I played for a while in A standard but you could easily tune those 72s down a full octave. Anyways, this baby plays like a dream. I'm a gibson man, I've got the les paul and a nighthawk. However this one puts them to shame, the neck is beautiful with really low action and so much room! It makes me think twice when I pick up another guitar cause this one has so much room in the frets. This is the way guitars were meant to be built. The explorer shape is one I've always wanted and is a beaut. The picture puts the paint job a little bright or at least on mine. I like it darker like the one I have which I think is the way she'll be. If you can find her buy her and love her. She's one of a kind.
