Product information - GIBSON 1958 Korina Explorer Reissue Natural Black Pickguard

Authentic replica of the 58 Explorer with custombucker pickups, including case and certificate

The Gibson 1958 Korina Explorer Reissue Natural Black Pickguard is an authentic replica down to the smallest detail. Gibson Custom Shop sends an authentic replica of the first Explorer, of which only 19 units left the factory in Kalamazoo in 1958. In-depth scans of original vintage Explorers provide the basis for a precise reproduction of the futuristic guitar design with which legendary Gibson president Ted McCarty was ahead of his time, while Korina wood promises a special resonance joy of the guitar. With Gibson custombucker pickups, 1958 Korina Explorer delivers an authentic Vintage-Sound in the style of the legendary PAF humbuckers, which is still considered the benchmark for all rock and blues players. Historically accurate Hardware in Aged Gold Finish completes the 1958 Korina Explorer Reissue guitar from the Gibson Custom Shop.

The neck and body of the '58 Reissue Explorer are made of Korina and glued with Hide Glue.

Historically correct construction and shapes

In order to reproduce the pioneering shapes of the '58 Explorer as accurately as possible, we had the Gibson Custom Shop detailed scans of the best originals from the period. The use of lightweight Korina wood and Hide Glue also promises the coveted vintage sound with resonant emphasis on the mids. The precisely reproduced "1958 Explorer" neck profile and VOS nitrocellulose finish with vintage patina also promise the feel and feel of original Explorer.

Custombucker pickups and a hand-wired circuit with "Phone Book" capacitors promise authentic vintage PAF sounds.

Custombucker Pickups and "Phone Book" Capacitors

For the pickup of the 1958 Korina Explorer Reissue the Gibson Custom Shop two Gibson Custombuckers. With unwaxed coils and the correct Alnico mix, the humbuckers deliver absolutely authentic vintage sounds in PAF style. With their airy response and vocal midrange, they provide the perfect basis for creamy overdrive tones. But also in the clean channel the pickups convince with an excellent and warm sound. The pickups are controlled via a traditional 3-way circuit, which allows the precise adjustment of the sound with CTS Vintage Taper Pots and historically correct "Phone Book" capacitors.

Aged Gold Hardware

Last but not least, the 1958 Korina Explorer Reissue electric guitar is completed by historically accurate Hardware in the appealing Aged Gold Finish. Developed under the aegis of visionary Gibson president Ted McCarty, the duo of an aluminum stopbar tailpiece and ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge guarantees precise intonation and string action adjustment. At the typical hockeystick headstock, Kluson Style tuners with celluloid wings ensure high precision when tuning the electric guitar.
