I was recently offered a killer deal on this brand new (Nov 2021 build) left handed Gibson Explorer. What a killer playing and sounding guitar....I never knew! First impression is that this model kind of blows away the other Gibson's I've had (or still have). Lightweight, resonant, simple controls, super low/fast action, stays in tune and no BS features. I see now why you would get one of these if you want to rock. Excellent build quality too and smells like it just left the paint booth :cool: ...and there's something about Korina...

Totally agree with everything. This is the new golden age of Gibson. Happy NGD.

What a beauty your Explorer is! congratulations.
I hope you really enjoy it.
This should be a lesson to those who state that Gibsons don't stay in tune, or have a bad G string, whatever it is.

Those things can happen to any guitar and are easily rectified, but!, it's even better when you don't have that niggle from the get-go to worry about. :)

Really cool guitar. I've never owned one but I've always thought they were a great design. Enjoy it!

Wow lefty! Very cool.

It doesn't look like Korina, I'd say that's mahogany as well. Curious now, because there's usually a huge price difference between mahogany and Korina.

I picked up an explorer last year after selling my Firebird that I could not bond with. I agree, they really are great. Total rock machines.

I'm in the opposite camp. I much prefer the Firebird over the Explorer - both in tone and ergonomics.
