In 1958, at the same time as the Flying V, Gibson introduced a new design: the Explorer. Company boss Ted McCarty had suggested the development in order to polish up the conservative image of the brand. The Explorer was a flop. The time was not yet ripe for such unusual optics. In the 70s, the models of the 50s became a rarity - today absurdly expensive collector's items - and other manufacturers used the shape for their own models. From 1976 onwards, Gibson again produced Explorers, which are still popular with Southern, hard and heavy rockers.The Explorer is one of the most "comfortable" guitars. The right forearm can rest relaxed on the cantilevered upper wing. The solid body provides a well-balanced sound. The Explorer player does not know head heaviness.
