GIBSON Explorer Reissue

GIBSON manufactured the Explorer Reissue between 1975 and 1980. This was a reissue of the rare 1958 Gibson Explorer model of which only 38 were ever produced. It was made from select mahogany with natural finish (or more rarely black or white finish) with the exact 1958 body shape, authentic unique “scimitar" peghead and gold-plated parts. The scale length was 24.75"  just like the original 1958 model and also had the same white pickguard configuration. Controls were a three position toggle selector switch and 1-tone and 2-volume controls.
