Legendary construction looks great and sounds better
The Gibson Explorer needs no introduction. This design made its first appearance in the 1950s and has achieved iconic status around the guitar community. The Explorer Faded Limited shares all of the appointments that come together to make these guitars as popular as they are. The mahogany body and neck boast great sustain with plenty of midrange bark. You'll have no problem nailing fast-fretted passages on the SlimTaper neck. And the Tune-o-matic bridge and Grover tuners keep your tuning stable while you pound out riff after riff.
Stripped to the hard-rocking essentials
If it wasn't needed, it went. That's how the Explorer Faded Limited was born. The iconic body is finished with a satin nitrocellulose that allows the wood to breathe optimally. The lack of pickguard allows more wood to show through. And limited ornamentation ensures your audience will be focused on your every riff. Not only that, but this also means you can get your hands on a genuine Gibson Explorer at an unbelievable price. Sweetwater will only have this model for a limited time, so act now!
High-output, snarling tone
The voice of the Explorer Faded Limited solidbody electric guitar is particularly viscous. The guitar is outfitted with a pair of Gibson's Dirty Fingers humbucking pickups. These are Gibson's highest-output pickups. They sound great clean, but excel at pounding the front of your amplifier into submission. And you'll be amazed at how well they still let the natural tone of the mahogany body and neck and rosewood fretboard shine through. Plug the Explorer Faded Limited into your favorite high-gain amplifier and stand back.
