Yep, its Tuesday again, and Gibson has announced this week’s Guitar Of The Week––the updated Explorer Pro Vintage Sunburst.
Like the other offerings in the series, this version of the Explorer Pro appears to be unique mostly for its finish, and will be produced in a run of just 400 instruments.
The guitar will feature a mahogany body, AA flame maple top, antique binding (top & fretboard,) mahogany neck with Explorer profile (24 3/4“ scale length,) and a rosewood fretboard with 22 frets and dot inlays.
Electronics include a 496R humbucker at the neck, 500T humbucker at the bridge, dual volume controls & single tone control (amber top-hat knobs,) and 3-way pickup switching. Chrome hardware includes a traditional stopbar tailpiece, tune-o-matic bridge, and Grover tuning machines.
There’s no word on price as of yet, but if Gibson sticks with its current pricing (and indications are good that they will,) we can probably expect the Explorer Pro Vintage Sunburst to go for around $1200.
