Gibson Explorer with Tremolo Limited Edition

Gibson Explorer with Tremolo Limited Edition


This new rendition of the legendary Gibson design carries high-output humbucking pickups and the most advanced vibrato tailpiece available, and wraps it all in Gibson's renowned playability, while retaining the deadly looks that made its namesake such an icon in the first place, enhanced by a stunning high-gloss nitrocellulose finish in Classic White.

As advanced as the Explorer with Floyd-Rose™ is, it still starts with Gibson's traditional cornerstone of select tonewoods and superior construction. A solid mahogany body provides the blend of warmth, depth and richness that has made it a favorite with players for more than half a century, while a solid quarter-sawn mahogany neck—glued in, of course—both enhances resonance and sustain. It offers a sweetly fast and comfortable feel, too, with a depth that starts at .800" at the 1st fret and rises gradually to .850" at the 12th. On top of this time-tested template, the first major update comes in the hardware department: a Floyd-Rose™ vibrato unit partnered with a locking nut. Together, this system yields everything from deep divebombs to subtly tremulous wobbles, all with the highest tuning stability available. Floyd-Rose™ originated the high-performance “double-locking" vibrato, and the use of the real deal on the Explorer With Floyd-Rose™ takes this axe right over the top.

To power it all home, Gibson USA includes a pair of high-gain pickups from its Hot Ceramics range, a 496R in the neck position and a 500T in the bridge. The former offers rich, creamy tones with outstanding clarity, while the latter, one of Gibson's hottest humbucking pickups, provides everything from heavy crunch to wailing lead tones with endless sustain. In short, they constitute a pickup set that delivers in spades all the attack and aggression that modern metal players demand, while achieving sweet tonal nuances when desired. A control array of two independent volume knobs and a master tone, along with Gibson's traditional three-way toggle switch, provides plenty of sonic versatility without ever getting in the way.
