Mint 2022 Gibson Custom ’58 Explorer Korina


In stock

Mint, the white pickguard variant, with deluxe original hard case, COA, and hang tags. A note-perfect recreation of Gibson’s futuristic 1958 Explorer model that passed almost unnoticed at the time but has subsequently become possible the most valuable and collectible vintage American solidbody electric of all. Stunning korina body with strong and variegated grain and set korina neck with natural VOS (vintage patina) nitrocellulose lacquer finish, rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays, great ‘50s vintage neck profile, hide glue construction, lightly aged gold hardware including Kluson tuners with celluloid keystone buttons, ABR-1 bridge, lightweight aluminum stoptail and pickup covers, and very attractive late ‘50s-style plastic such as the 4-ply white guard and brown control cavity covers. Electronics consist of a fantastic-sounding pair of Custombucker pickups, individual volume controls for each pickup and a master tone control, and a 3-way switch. Like-new condition, plays and sounds great, just an amazing guitar. Made in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.
