The Limited Run Explorer Mahogany models from Gibson Custom pay homage to those "TV Model" Les Pauls of the '50s, which boasted beautiful limed mahogany finishes. It seemed apropos for Gibson Custom to introduce the Explorer in classic TV attire since the popularity of the "TV Model" Les Paul model was at its peak in the late 1950s—just around the time Gibson debuted their groundbreaking, now-legendary "modernistic" guitars like the Explorer. Back in the day though, Explorers were crafted using korina and not mahogany, so Gibson never messed around with the finish options until today with these mahogany-bodied Explorers! Now that these Explorers feature mahogany bodies, Gibson has dressed them up in your choice of two old-school finishes, TV White and TV Yellow, and two brand new finishes, TV Black Gold and TV Black Silver.

Made in true '58 fashion, the Limited Run Explorer Mahogany features a chunky '58 C-shaped neck with a historic neck tenon, a '50s tubeless truss rod assembly, a solid rosewood fretboard with a genuine nylon nut, and hand-wired electronics including a pair of PAF-inspired Custombucker pickups for that authentic vintage humbucker growl and bite. Traditional-style nickel hardware (gold hardware on TV Black Gold finish) including an ABR-1 bridge, a lightweight aluminum stopbar tailpiece, and Kluson tuners round out this vintage-inspired axe. Comes with the protection of a hardshell case and includes a Gibson Custom Certificate of Authenticity.
