Gibson Custom Shop 1958 Mahogany Explorer Reissue VOS - Walnut

Thunder and Lightning

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.
