Do you just melt when you see an Explorer like we do? Probably. Why else would you be viewing this page?
This 2016 Gibson Explorer Faded straight up ROCKS! It's a winning combination: take an Explorer, get rid of the shiny finish, simplify the electronics layout, add a pair of Dirty Fingers 'buckers, and boom! Instant rock machine!
This guitar is 100% original and unmodified. The coil splits sound fantastic...a Dirty Fingers is actually usable in split mode, unlike a lot of pickups we encounter. This guitar has minimal signs of use and no evidence of abuse. There are a few dings here and there but nothing abnormal for a used guitar that doesn't have one of those thick protective clear coats. The coolest part of the Faded Series is how awesome they show wear. Natural aging on these actually looks great! No cracks, no signs of previous repair, no finish touchups.
We just gave it a full setup, fret leveling, fret polishing, cleaning and set it up to wail with new strings! The original huge padded gig bag and case candy are included.
