The first of the 2009 Limited Run Series guitars from Gibson USA
The neck on the Holy Explorer retains the traditional characteristics of the original Explorer neck – 24¾-inch scale, 22 frets, rosewood fingerboard and figured acrylic dot inlays. The Holy Explorer also sports a single volume control perfectly positioned for swells, and two of humbucker pickups.
The Holy Explorer features include six in-line mini Grover tuners, which deliver smooth tuning action and accuracy, Gibson’s traditional stop bar tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge, and a customized Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity and Gibson USA hardshell case with a white silkscreened logo. The new Holy Explorer is limited to just 350 guitars.
There’s just a single volume control, positioned for easy pinky-finger volume swells, and a three-way pickup selector — nothing superfluous to get in the way of you and your tone.
The Holy Explorer also retains its ancestor’s distinctive “drooping” headstock with six-in-line tuners, which in this case are Grover Mini tuners. The guitar is also fitted with a 1-11/16″-wide Corian nut and Gibson’s traditional stop bar tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge, which keeps everything firmly anchored and ready to wail.
