Gibson's competitors had long accused the company of being conservative. In 1958, the company answered with what had to be the least conservative guitar designs in history - at least up until that point. Gibson introduced three "futuristic" guitar models that year, the Flying V, the Explorer and the Moderne. The first two went into limited production and while there have long been rumors of a production version of the Moderne, most doubt it went beyond the prototype stage. But Gibson certainly showed the critics that it was capable of and quite willing to break the conservative mold with these instruments, which actually owe an awful lot to late '50s automobile design. While there weren't many Explorers sold in 1958, the guitar has been reincarnated a few times in the last four decades, most notably in 1976, which is the design used to create today's X-Plorer. Love it or hate it, the original "lightning bolt" look of the original Explorer was clearly well ahead of its time.

This Epiphone Korina Explorer is a replica of the 1958 classic equipped with two humbuckers, gold hardware, and a mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard. This is an affordable way to own a piece of rock history.
