Plays great

Comes with a non original flight case 

After its short but noteworthy premier in 1958, the Gibson
Explorer went out of production until the mid-’70s. Gibson changed the Explorer
design in 1981 to include uncovered “Dirty Fingers” humbuckers, a
maple neck with Ebony fingerboard, and chrome-plated hardware. The Explorer
remained in production in various formats since, though again went on hiatus at
the end of 2012. This particular guitar is from 1997.

Body: Angled solid body electric guitar with a mahogany body and
an ebony finish.

Neck: Mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard, dot inlays, 22
frets.

Pickups/Hardware: Dual uncovered humbuckers, two volume and one
tone control, tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece – Chrome hardware, Grover
tuning keys, black toggle switch cap.

Cosmetics: This instrument does show normal wear & tear from
being played and used over the past twenty years – there is buckle scratching
on the back, some light wear around the edges of the headstock, a few nicks
& dings on the top and the back, but overall this Gibson is in pretty good
shape and is totally structurally sound. There is one ding on the back of the
neck where the black paint has been chipped off

Playability: This Gibson Explorer plays great – the action is
low & the instrument plays with no buzzing & no dead spots. We set this
baby up with 10’s and it is ready to be played and loved for years to come!
