BurstBucker humbucking pickups and the classic Gibson hardware combine for superb tone and sustain. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Gibson Explorer 2018 Electric Guitar:

    This is my 1st 2018 Gibson product line purchase. I own many Gibsons as I've been playing for over 40 years now. I own other brands as well as do most guitarists but this one really stands out. The appearance, fit & finish, the playability, the feel, the action & set up were perfect out of the case. I owned a an Explorer many years ago & ended up trading it off for something else (I don't even remember what for now). These new models come equipped with Burstbucker pups which just sound fantastic!
