The Explorer gets the TV treatment! Gibson's famous "TV Model" Les Pauls of the 1950s featured gorgeous limed mahogany finishes and were popular around the same time as the development of radical new "modernistic" guitars like the Explorer model. However, the Explorers were made of Korina wood, so Gibson never played with the finish options...until now. Presenting the limited-edition Explorer Mahogany TV series, featuring '58-spec construction and appointments and bodies made from solid Mahogany, which is sonically very similar to Korina. The finish options include classics like TV White, TV Yellow and exciting new TV colors -- TV Black Gold and TV Black Silver.
