The upgraded rock machine.

The 2017 Explorer HP combines raw power, scorching tones, and extreme sustain, into a pure and iconic rock design with super premium features. Still sonically aggressive and with tons of brute force, the Explorer 2017 HP adds a bit more of the modern comfort and subtlety to its arsenal, not diminishing one bit its fierce rock capabilities. Its solid mahogany body and powerful pickups are met with unheard of quality of tone transmission and absolute control over the action. Add to that its even faster neck designed for guitar soloists and its super smooth polished frets and you have one of the meanest, best sounding, and easiest to play Gibson guitar ever made. The guitar is delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.
