This Gibson Explorer was made in the USA in 1977. It has a very professionally repaired headstock crack. The repair it very hard to even see, although under ultaviolet light you can see the overspray. Aside from the repair, the guitar is in very nice shape. All of the parts are original except for the nut and the guitar has been refretted. This one has a large profile neck and is a joy to play. The original Gibson tarbacks sounds really great. It has been pro-setup and is ready to go. It comes with the original case.
