The 2017 Explorer HP combines raw power, scorching tones, and extreme sustain, into a pure and iconic rock design that's been classed up with super premium features. Still sonically aggressive and with tons of brute force, the Explorer 2017 HP adds a bit more of the modern comfort and subtlety to its arsenal, not diminishing one bit its fierce rock capabilities.

The mahogany body provides the blend of warmth, depth and richness that has made it a favorite with players for more than half a century while High Performance fast-access neck heel facilitates easy playability in the upper registers. It offers a sweetly fast and comfortable feel, too, thanks to its high-speed SlimTaper mahogany neck and 12"-radius rosewood 'board. The High Performance zero-fret titanium nut allows you to adjust the string action to taste while genuine mother-of-pearl dot inlays gives this shred-ready beast a touch of elegance. The dual 496R and 500T humbuckers are absolute powerhouses, ready to rock the house with the grind and aggression that go beyond traditional Humbuckers

Gibson has added their revolutionary G-FORCE Tuners to this latest offering of the Explorer, delivering unprecedented automated tuning capabilities. You can now access any preset tuning in just one second, which means you can realistically change tunings in the middle of a song, if needed. What's more, the tuners are now automatically engaged to operate both electronically or individually by hand. Compared to previous generations, this G FORCE system offers lower noise, better looks, and a smoother feel when manually tuning.

A traditional hardware pairing upgraded for the modern guitarist, the Explorer 2017 HP comes loaded up with a stop bar tailpiece along with a Tune-O-Matic bridge that features durable, lightweight, corrosion-resistant titanium saddles. The Explorer 2017 HP is delivered in a classic Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.
