1994 Gibson Centennial 100 years Anniversary Explorer Picture and Description:
1994 Gibson Centennial Anniversary Explorer Limited Edition The year 1994 was a big one for Gibson, representing its 100th anniversary, and the company wanted to "do it big".

This 1994 Gibson Centennial Anniversary Limited Edition Explorer is an absolutely stunning, absolutely awesome and incredibly collectible piece of Gibson history. The Gibson Explorer debuted in 1958, about 20 years ahead of its time. It wasn't until the late 1970s did Rock'n Roll's most daring guitarists embrace the Explorer and it's radical body shape. The Explorer is now one of the most sought-after instruments in the world. So much more than the sum of its parts, it's increased body mass aids the guitar's punchy tone, while its asymmetrical outline is deceptively well-balanced. This guitar will out perform other guitars in a way you just wouldn't believe until you plug it in! Its playability is as ideal for complex heavy metal rhythm styles as it is for blues-rock lead work... and it looks unbelievably cool. The Explorer has been played over the years by the likes of Mattias Jabs (Scorpions), The Edge (U2), Allen Collins (Lynyrd Skynyrd), James Hetfield (Metallica), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Gary Moore and Eric Clapton. This guitar is all original and in MINT condition! I never say that about a used guitar, but this guitar is in MINT CONDITION. ONE OWNER, UNDER THE BED. It looks like it's been locked in a vault since it was new and that's really too bad, cause this thing is a TONE MONSTER! This guitar is extremely resonant and incredibly light for a gold guitar with a ton of bling and she comes complete with the Certificate of Authenticity in its original gold-lined envelope and the original Gibson black hand-tooled leather case, complete with outer covering and hand-tooled embossed leather strap with 100 year anniversary logo, the blue silk ribbon with the Gibson 100 Year Anniversary logo in gold and all the other original hang tags.
