Gibson Explorer 2016 T Cherry

The Gibson Explorer 2016 T (Traditional) is back in the Gibson model lineup & re-establishes the classic features of the Explorer with some updates for today’s music. The Gibson USA’s 2016 Traditional range include Gibson’s original neck width of 1 11/16 inches at the nut, quality manual tuners, a traditional Graph Tech nut, and a thicker one-piece rosewood fingerboard with a hand-rubbed oil finish for a plush look and feel…

The Gibson Explorer 2016 T’s solid Mahogany body delivers a big and punchy sound, while the 496R Hot Ceramic and 500T Super Ceramic humbuckers snarl with aggressive authority. This is a true, made in the USA rockmachine.
