Free Deluxe Set-up
From the early years of the Gibson Custom Shop we have this beautiful 1985 Gibson Explorer in an Alpine White Sparkle finish. This guitar features a beautiful ebony fingerboard, Gold hardware, Tim Shaw Humbucking pickups, three-way toggle with two volume knobs and a master tone. Everything on this guitar seems to be original except for the Dunlop strap lock ends that were installed earlier in its life. The neck profile leans towards the slimmer side and with the combination of the ebony fingerboard it is perfect for thrash riffs and face melting fast picking.
This guitar is in very good condition. It shows signs of checking across the entire body. There are a few paint chips located near the volume and tone pots. The guitar has had Dunlop strap lock end pieces installed. The original gold hardware is in good shape but does show signs of fading. There is a dings and dents on the head stock and the sides of the guitar. Frets are on the lower side but still have plenty of life left.
