Used Gibson Explorer Ebony 2005


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


A super cool Explorer in Ebony finish with some really nice upgrades. The guitar was given a somewhat "vintage treatment" by the previous owner - the original tuners were replaced with a set of actual vintage Kluson Deluxe strip tuners; the pickups are now a pair of muscular sounding exposed coil "zebras"; the finish & parts were "aged" to give the overall appearance of a mellowed, vintage guitar. Professionally set up with fresh strings & low action, so it plays & sounds marvelous.
