OVERVIEW

Celebrating 120 years of tonewoods, pickups and design.

Combining time-tested tonewoods, versatile pickups, and the full measure of Gibson USA craftsmanship with one of the most revolutionary guitar designs ever to hit the scene, the Explorer 120 delivers show-stopping looks, superb playability, and versatile tones to take you center stage in a surprisingly wide variety of musical styles.

The Explorer 120 begins with a Grade-A mahogany body cut to the angular profile of this trend-setting axe. The glued-in Grade-A neck is carved to the fast, slim profile that so many rockers love, with a bound one-piece Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with frets over binding and dot inlays.

The traditional œangled six-a-side headstock has a mother-of-pearl Gibson logo, and theres a commemorative œ120th Anniversary banner at the 12th fret. Vintage tones with contemporary performance come from Burstbucker Pro Rhythm and Lead pickups, made in the image of the original PAF humbuckers with mismatched coils for characteristic bite and depth.

A chrome tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece partner with Mini Grover tuners for solid sustain and efficient tune ups. The Explorer 120 comes in ebony, finished with hand-sprayed high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer and protected in an elegant brown hardshell case.
