Explorer started out in 1957 as part of the Modernist series. This series was a trio in which the Explorer, Flying V and Modernist models made their debut. Radically new design with futuristic elements and new approach to construction proved to be too progressive for the rather conservative guitar world of the 1950s. About a decade later, Gibson decides to partially reboot the Modernist series, but instead of the trio of outlandish guitars, Explorer and Flying V series were introduced. 1968 version of Explorer hit the jack pot and Explorer became the legend. Almost five decades later, Gibson USA unveils the tribute to the Explorer of all Explorers. Solid and flat mahogany body, set in mahogany neck, two-piece bridge unit, 496R/500T set of pickups, 22-fret rosewood fingerboard and Gorver Mini tuners are featured on this reissue.
