Gibson
X-Plorer Yellow with Mini-Humbuckers 2003.  

Guitar is in
great condition with some great laquer checking 

Includes Hard
Case that is battered -but does the job 

Here is a stunning
Gibson X-Plorer Studio. Note the spelling “X-Plorer”. These guitars
were only made for a year or so around 2003 – 2004 and they came in five
colours. They also made a model with a Swamp Ash body. The colours are all
Metallic and are red, blue, green, coppertone and yellow which you can see in
the picture. The dimensions of the body are 10% smaller than a normal Gibson
Explorer. They are lightweight and the body is made of Basswood.

An extremely rare Gibson from around two decades ago. The
X-Plorer was a short-lived variant of the Explorer, with mini-humbucker
pickups, slightly different body dimensions and some very un-Gibson colour
options!

This example is in possibly the best colour choice: a bright
yellow that really stands out (and what’s the point of an Explorer if it isn’t
to be distinctive?) The guitar is in great condition. It has some signs of age
as is to be expected, but major dings or dents. Please see pictures for
details. If you’d like additional pictures just let me know.

Lightweight and resonant, it plays and sounds fantastic. The
Gibson hard case is included (it’s not is as good a shape as the guitar, but is
structurally sound, and has the essential bright pink interior!)
