Gibson Custom 1958 Mahogany Explorer Reissue VOS Overview.

A new year, a new decade and a fantastic new Gibson Guitars product lineup that is sure to have something for everyone. After a very successful relaunch in 2019, the Gibson Custom range has drawn inspiration from it's roots while offering the very best in modern luthiery technques to deliver a true modern classic. When you play a Gibson Custom Shop instrument you can easily understand what all the hype is about. This years lineup is fantastic with another anniversary series in the form of the Gibson Custom 60th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard which is available in six colours such as Wide Tomato Burst, Orange Lemon Fade and Washed Bourbon Burst. Other notable additions are the Gibson Custom 1963 Firebird V and 1965 Non-Reverse Firebird V both with a Maestro Vibrola and finished in Vintage Sunburst, the Gibson Custom 1958 Mahogany Explorer and 1958 Mahogany Flying V both in a Walnut finish and the very bold Gibson Custom 1967 Mahogany Flying V with Maestro in Sparkling Burgundy. The Gibson Custom Shop is the pinnacle of craftsmanship, quality and sound excellence. Each instrument celebrates Gibson’s legacy through accuracy, authenticity and attention to detail.

As one of the boldest guitar designs ever, the lightning-bolt shaped Explorer has looked ahead of its time since its debut in 1958. Originals have been championed by rock legends and coveted by collectors -- they are currently the most valuable vintage guitars money can buy. This Custom Shop 1958 Explorer tribute utilizes solid Mahogany construction and a Walnut finish, a handsome departure from the original White Limba models with all the same tone, feel and vintage vibe.
