The Gibson 2019 Explorer Tribute Electric Guitar in Satin Ebony combines the vintage style of the legendary Explorer with an aggressive metal edginess. Shaped to the same futuristic body profile that we've all come to know and love, the Explorer Tribute is destined to become a legend in its own right. Each model is supplied with a Gibson gig bag to keep it safe from harm, whilst a Gibson accessory kit allows it to be kept in top condition.
Awesome Explorer body
The 2019 Explorer Tribute adheres to the sleek lines and unashamedly cool design that could still be considered ground-breaking were it to be released today. Built using mahogany, the Explorer Tribute generates an enviable midrange energy with robust sustain whilst retaining a balanced feel in the hands for increased playing comfort. Whether you prefer to wear it high or swing it low, the Explorer always sits just right. The cool ebony finish is protected by a coating of satin nitrocellulose lacquer to maintain a smooth feel that is free from unwanted stickiness or tackiness. The classic-style of the Explorer is complemented by the exquisitely appointed 5-ply black pickguard.
Stable mahogany neck
Joined to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is fitted using set-in construction for improved resonance and sustain. The generous 24.75-inch scale length neck emphasises richness and warmth from every note. Carved to the slim taper profile, the Explorer neck encourages you to play without fear at lightning speeds. The TekToid nut stabilises each string to promote consistency, which allows you to play as enthusiastically as you like. Married to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 cryogenically-treated low frets with acrylic dot position inlays to guide your way. The 12-inch fingerboard lends itself beautifully to sweeping arpeggios, lightning fast legato, elaborate tapping and seamless slides.
Dirty Fingers + pickups
The 2019 Explorer Tribute's edgy character is enhanced by a pair of ceramic Dirty Fingers + pickups fitted in the neck and bridge positions. The Rhythm pickup in the neck position generates a hearty energy that is ideal for bluesy riffs and solos. The Lead pickup in the bridge is unashamedly brash and takes no prisoners, making it perfect for those who want to tear through some hard rock and metal without any fuss. Control comes in the form of stylish black top hat knobs for with a master volume pot, a master tone pot, and a three-way toggle switch for unfettered and intuitive control.
The body is home to the hardworking Nashville tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, which anchor each string securely to guarantee a seamless connection that is designed to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is equipped with Grover mini Rotomatic tuning machines with that work tirelessly to maintain tuning integrity with absolute precision.
