With its figured Maple top, gold-plated hardware and finely contoured body, Gibson updated the classic Explorer design with this E/2 (Explorer II). This example sports a Kahler Vibrato and sounds amazing! Bill Kelliher, of Mastodon fame, said of his ’81 Explorer II “It’s the most beautiful and most awesome sounding/playing guitar I’ve ever had. It just crushes and plays so smooth…it barks like a rabid dog. It’s my main ax now.” Enough said!
