The radical Explorer was light-years ahead of its time right from its unveiling in 1958, and the Government Series II Explorer from Gibson USA takes that revolutionary spirit to the max, in a guitar commemorating a notorious era in Gibson history. Constructed using woods that were seized by the Feds, then returned once there was a resolution and the investigation ended, this bold axe is the perfect weapon with which to fight for your right to rock. The timelessly modernist Explorer design is dressed in a distinctive vintage-gloss Government Tan finish, with the Government Series II graphic—a bald eagle hoisting a confiscated Gibson guitar neck—and black chrome hardware. A genuine piece of Gibson history comes in the form of a solid, one-piece rosewood fingerboard made from stocks returned after the resolution, and each guitar includes a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Gibson CEO Henry Juszkiewicz. And the Government Series II Explorer’s tone is far more than visual. With a pair of Dirty Fingers+ humbuckers, among Gibson’s hottest pickups ever, it’s primed to slash and burn with maximum vengeance.
