Gibson built the Explorer with a solid mahogany body and a very comfortable set mahogany neck (topped with rosewood), so you know you're in for rich tones, great sustain, and outstanding midrange character. The Explorer has been embraced by hard rockers the world over for decades; its set-neck construction and fast-playing neck combine to give you an unbeatable sonic weapon onstage or in the studio. From the tonewoods to the rock-solid set-neck to the top-shelf hardware, this axe was made to rock.Slim 60's neck profile is fast and comfortable
Some Gibsons had huge mahogany necks, but by 1960 the company made a number of modifications until those early '60s necks became among the fastest available. You can move up and down the neck at blazing speeds, but the rosewood fingerboard still has that warm, classic Gibson feel, allowing easy access to the upper frets, so you can really dig into your solos. It also sounds great when grabbing big fat power chords. The pearloid dots complete the vintage look.Two smoking hot humbuckers for hot tones
Historically, Gibson has long been associated with the dark, punchy tone of the humbucking pickup with its fat low end and crunchy, complex midrange. The Explorer carries on that tradition with two scorching hot humbuckers. The Explorer comes standard with coverless pickups.Fully setup for precision playability.
This Gibson Explorer 2006 plays fast, precise and stays in tune like a setup floyd rose system, thanks in large part to the uprgaded Gibson TP-6 Fine tune tailpiece and Kahler String lock upgrades.
