Vintage guitars for sale: Gibson Explorer

The Explorer was one of the legendary trio of solid body guitars created by Gibson President Ted McCarty at the Kalamazoo plant in the late 1950s. Along with the Gibson Moderne and Flying V, the original Explorer featured a body of Korina - an African wood better known as limba - and the latest innovations in guitar design and hardware, most notably the new humbucker pickups. Despite it being the dawn of the space age, the new guitars were just too futuristic and did not sell. Well at first... it gained acceptance in the late 1970s/early 1980s, and several reissues later, the Explorer is one of Gibson's bread and butter models.
