Vintage Gibson E2 Explorer Walnut 1979


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


Since its debut in '58, the Explorer has sought to inspire both players & fans alike with its unique, futuristic design & superb tonal qualities. The E2 carried on that tradition back in the late '70s showcasing the original design, but with a walnut body & neck. Professionally set up with fresh strings & low action, so it plays & sounds fantastic!

Cosmetic Condition: Various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches & some finish wear. There are a couple of extra screw holes on either side of the bridge posts & the neck was professionally refretted, so the guitar plays like a champ! Overall it's got a great look to it with a cool vibe.
