New for 2018, GAK are proud to present the new Gibson USA range of electric guitars! 

The Gibson USA 2018 Explorer, Antique Natural is the Gibson's latest take on the original, 1958 trail-blazing Explorer model. Featuring a solid genuine Mahogany body and set-neck, the Explorer 2018 has bags of sustain and low midrange. The fretboard is torrefied Granadillo, which is known as 'the wood that sings' and although similar in terms of tone to Rosewood it does have a touch more brightness, which balances well with the Mahogany body and neck. The neck profile is a comfortable slim taper which is perfect for fast shred work.

Pickups are Gibson Burstbucker humbuckers which have that classic growl and sustain you would expect on a rock machine like the Explorer! 

Includes Gibson fitted hardcase.
