Gibson Explorer Faded 2016 Limited Run Vintage Amber CH

For both looks and tone, the mighty Explorer remains one of the most menacing guitars in the entire rock spectrum. Now Gibson USA takes it over the top in both departments with the Explorer Faded 2016 Limited, featuring a luscious and characterful satin Vintage Trans Amber finish and a pair of our hottest humbucking pickups to launch your own scorched-earth sonic campaign. The classic combination of solid mahogany body and glued-in mahogany neck with genuine rosewood fingerboard anchor it all down for superb tonal integrity, and from there we trick it out into an almighty rock weapon ready to take on all comers.

Simple master Volume and Tone controls plus a three-way toggle switch provide non-nonsense access to a pair of Gibson’s hottest humbuckers of all time. The Dirty Fingers+ pickups in both the neck and bridge positions are made with ceramic magnets and over-wound coils, for the ultimate in shred-certified distortion and sizzling sustain, without sacrificing clarity and tonal depth. From classic rock, to grunge, to metal, or even heavier blues styles, the Explorer Faded 2016 Limited attacks it all with ease.

Our ultra-slick Explorer Slim Taper neck profile offers unfettered speed where you need it most, with the extreme upper-fret access that this radical body style is known for. Our classic hardware complement of Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece lock it all down for solid sustain, while high-quality Mini Grovers offer excellent tuning efficiency at the headstock end. The great looking and tactile feeling Vintage Trans Amber in satin nitrocellulose lacquer has no pickguard to encumber its raw, rockin’ look, while simple acrylic dot markers adorn the rosewood fingerboard. Grab ahold of a sultry yet menacing take on this original rebel, and prepare to torch everything in your path.
