2005 Gibson Explorer - Ebony Finish
Weight: 8 lbs 9 oz’s

Here is a great player with tons of mojo. The bottom line is it is READY to ROCK!! it's in good condition cosmetically and perfect playing condition. Fresh strings and professional set up. The frets are in GREAT shape and have been dressed and polished, showing no grooves. the ebony nitrocellulose finish has some wear but overall is in good shape. This is such a versatile guitar, it can rock out with the best but also cleans up beautifully well. Really brilliant and fast neck. Fitted with factory spec 496-R and 500-T Humbuckers. It has a radically sharp design and excellent playing balance and just looks amazing.

The body of the Gibson Explorer Electric Guitar is solid mahogany for a fat and punchy sound, while the dual blazing-hot ceramic magnet humbuckers (496-R and 500-T) sizzle and snarl with aggressive authority. Other features include a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, and Grover machine heads and is of course made in the USA.

Cosmetically there is some play wear, such as buckle marks and a few scratches on the back. There are a handful of scattered little dings on the body, buckle marks, and normal play wear but nothing nasty and no major eye sores...just some honest MOJO.

Very nice! This is the second guitar I purchased from The Guitar Dude, and I can’t say nice enough things about him or the amazing condition that he keeps his guitars in. I highly recommend purchasing from him. Thanks again.
