Gibson Unveil Reverse Explorer!
2nd Sep 2008 | 09:17
Gibson is releasing a limited edition Reverse Explorer Guitar following the positive response to last year's Reverse Flying V.
The Reverse Explorer's mahogany body is now inverted so that the small horn is on the upper bass-side extending upward, while the larger horn is now positioned on the lower treble-side, pointing downward.
The body outline is a carbon fiber pickguard shaped like a lightning bolt. The neck is a hybrid betweens Gibson's standard '50s rounded contour and its '60s slim-taper profile, topped by a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard.
Production is limited to 1,000 guitars at a cost of $3,049 (approx £1,500).
