Gibson Limited Edition 76 Explorer in Natural Mahogany
The Gibson Explorer has been a huge part of the rock and metal guitar worlds for generations.

This limited edition '72 inspired models is finished in just a natural lacquer letting the natural beauty of the Mahogany body and neck show through.
Mahogany has been the main wood used on Gibson guitars ever since the 1950's. It is heavy but the powerful tone it creates is unmatched when paired with a pair of powerful humbucking pickups. So apart from the Rosewood fretboard the rest of the guitar is made out of some quite stunning Mahogany that has been chosen to look great with this natural finish.
Hot Ceramic Pickups
While Explorer's have been used by a whole bunch of different players throughout the years nowadays they are focused in on the players who love some high gain destruction.

These are very hot ceramic pickups that were designed for the hard rock or metal player who really wants to push their amp hard.
