Gibson [Guitar of the Week #13] Explorer Pro
Guitar from U.S. factories, have been edited to 400 copies worldwide, so it was with pleasure that I move to acquire this machine.
Just a quick little description:
- Box Solid Mahogany.
- Channel 22 frets glued.
- 2 humbuckers Gibson 496R Ceramic magnet humbucker, 500T Ceramic magnet humbucker.
- 2 volume and 2 tone knobs.
- 3 position selector micro: neck pickup, bridge pickup and two together.
So here is the Gibson stuff you'll understand.
So just as with the difference between this guitar and explore pro standard: The body has been narrowed, compressed, refined to provide a better physique and better ergonomics course of play with its impact on the sound but we shall see later. I found the features of this guitar perfect limit to my taste.
The color is unique: Heritage Cherry.


Channel pleasant, you look through this table with musical pleasure.
Access to acute is correct, as on all explore easiest course on the high E on the low E.
In terms of ergonomics, in terms of form this guitar can be played seated, the wife of a hollow leg, then standing the weight is suitable, between Sg and Lespaul. I can not tell you the exact weight of this guitar but I'm not ruined after 1 hour of play standing.


So voila, here we have the most to say.
I bought this guitar, then returning to the house I plugged in: a cataclysm. In fact I play on a 50 watt Kustom amp (which does not favor the treble) and it sounds heavy and hot. We see that having withdrawn from the timber compared to the old model conpresse and warms the sound. Therefore it's heavy distortion: metal and rock music preferred, then if we lower the gain can get heavy as maiden, acdc, or the guns, but it will polish up the reglagesde amp.
The weak point of this guitar is probably its complexity. It will really be careful about setting and try a bit of everything to get the required sounds, that's the price to pay to master the beast.
But after some days of play we discover that it really is a nice guitar for the price of 1300 euro, you get to play on a beautiful Gibson!
That is the objective test, then comes the subjective part where I said that this guitar is not in perfect accordance with what I like to play.


I use this guitar for 2 years already and it has rained all around me (scratch my friends, my father occasional guitarist...) What I like most is his appearance and ease of play vis a vis Neck and what disappointed me is that I struggle to find myself in my sound, but when I arrived it was almost perfect for me.
Before buying this guitar I took my time trying to Jackson, ESP, but my choice is focused on exploring this, then nothing to say as EXCELLENT value for money
Avecl'experience me personally I'll change may be, because I'm a stack as I discover teset; but this one suits me perfectly!
