- electric guitars
Dates of manufacture:
The original Gibson Futura was an electric guitar designed in 1957 and patented in 1958 (U.S. patent number 181,865) which was the precursor of the Gibson Explorer. These mahogany prototypes, dubbed the Futura in later years, looked the production Explorers, but had a slightly different body with a split or forked headstock. In 1996 Gibson eventually put this design into production as the 1957 Futura Korina Reissue.
This page, however, is for the other Gibson Futura (which has nothing to do with the Explorer prototype). In 1983 Gibson introduced another model named the Futura. This Futura's body shape was an upscale version of the Gibson Corvus can-opener shape guitar. Production of this Corvus Futura lasted until 1985.
