A genuine Explorer, through and through

Gibson built the Explorer 120 with a solid mahogany body and a very comfortable set mahogany neck (topped with rosewood), so you know you're in for rich tones, great sustain, and outstanding midrange character. The Explorer has been embraced by hard rockers the world over for decades, its set-neck construction and fast-playing neck combine to give you an unbeatable sonic weapon onstage or in the studio. From the tonewoods to the rock-solid set-neck to the top-shelf hardware, this axe was made to rock.

Burstbucker Pro humbuckers give you access to a universe of tone

The Gibson Explorer 120 features Burstbucker Pro pickups that give you everything you need for iconic humbucker tones. From smooth and sultry clean tones to raging rock leads, this stellar axe covers the entire range. Take it from Sweetwater, the Explorer 120 has the tones you need!

You just can't beat the feel of this slim Flying V neck

This Gibson Explorer 120 gives you the smooth feel and fast action of Gibson's Flying V slim profile neck. Early Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications, eventually becoming the standard SlimTaper carve. And when you add to that the ultra-smooth feel of its bound rosewood fingerboard, you get the best of both comfort and performance from this Explorer. Add to that this guitar's classy Gibson 120th Anniversary banner inlay at the 12th fret, and your Gibson Explorer 120 has the look and feel of a future classic.
