1976 Gibson Explorer Limited Edition Vintage – Not A Reissue, Nr
Up for bids is a 1976 Gibson Explorer, Limited Edition, Serial number 00233362. This is the Explorer with the big neck. This is NOT a reissue.It's a player's guitar, and it has its share of dings, nicks and such (see pics - I tried to make as much visible as I could). I've really enjoyed this guitar, it has a great tone - all of the years I've had her, she has been played in my house and nowhere else (through a Vox AC30 - incredible sound!)
The plastic tone knobs, bridge, toggle switch tip, strap buttons, output jackplate and the braided wiring from the switch to the output jack are not original. Everything else is. It's hard to see in the pics, but all of the pots are dated 1976. The pickups are original too. There are no repairs or breaks, nor are there any structural cracks in the wood. It has had a professional refret, it definitely needed it when I got her. Comes with a Gibson Explorer case, but it is relatively new.
All in all, it's a great guitar but I gotta let her go! Please ask me any questions you have before bidding.
Will only ship to the US, no international shipping.
