One glance and you know instantly: this is a rock'n'roll powerhouse of a guitar. The 2017 Explorer T delivers raw power, scorching tones, and extreme sustain, all wrapped in an iconic design that's as rebellious as rock itself.
And beneath the Explorer's aggression and brute sonic force lie the subtler qualities that make a Gibson such a special guitar: superb playing comfort, extreme speed, and the confidence of utmost quality. Crafted in the image of the original radical Explorer body style, using select solid mahogany, and loaded with two of Gibson's fiercest high-gain humbuckers and top-quality hardware, the Explorer T is truly a piece of rock weaponry that can do it all.
The guitar is delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth."
