Gibson Explorer guitars showcase a unique, futuristic design with a powerful sound. First introduced in 1958, it soon became common to see an Explorer in the hands of guitarists in the 1970s and 1980s. With its distinctive angular design and set neck, the Gibson Explorer offers a powerful sustain and tone. A particular favourite amongst heavy metal and hard rock guitarists, including James Hetfield of Metallica and Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, the Explorer is a must-have for guitar enthusiasts.
