Gibson USA Explorer 120
The 2014 Gibson USA Explorer 120 electric guitar celebrates Gibson’s 120th Anniversary in tuxedo style…dressed in black ebony with a white pickguard.
The Gibson Explorer with it’s radical shape & lines was ahead of it’s time when introduced in 1958 & still is today. From the outrageous body shape to the classic angled headstock this axe has always made a bold statement & is one of the most revolutionary guitar designs ever!
The Gibson USA Explorer 120 is a creative re-think of the radical Explorer of the past. It starts with a high grade Mahogany body cut to the angular profile of this iconic axe. The glued-in, grade-a Mahogany neck is carved to the comfortable & fast, slim profile that so many rockers love, with a bound, one piece Grade-A Rosewood fretboard and dot inlays. The fret over binding really is done well with a noticeable increase in the playing surface making the Explorer quite comfortable. The traditional angled headstock with Mini Grover™ six a side tuners has a mother of pearl Gibson logo, and there’s a commemorative “120th Anniversary” banner inlayed at the 12th fret.
Then finished in a hand-sprayed, high-gloss Ebony nitrocellulose lacquer & accented with the traditional 4-ply explorer white pickguard the Gibson USA Explorer 120 is dressed to kill.
The Gibson USA Explorer 120 produces warm vintage PAF style tones with modern performance thanks to the Burstbucker Pro neck & bridge pickups, made in the image of the original PAF humbuckers with mismatched coils for exceptional tone & depth. The versatility of the Explorer will take you center stage in a surprisingly wide variety of musical styles.
The Gibson USA Explorer 120 comes protected in an elegant brown Gibson hardshell case and includes all literature & truss-rod wrench.
