1984 Gibson Explorer in Mega Rare Green Burst Custom Color! SOLD! Holy moley! I don't think this guitar will appeal to anyone that likes "subtle" or "understated". This is easily one of the craziest looking Explorers I've ever seen. This is custom colored 1984 Explorer with the classic 3 in line control configuration and pickguard. How many did they make? Not many I would guess. Maybe just this one. Super rare as the color is definitely amazing but the fact that the specs are based on the classic 1976 Explorer as opposed to the Kahler, no pickguard, etc things they were doing then leads credence to the idea that someone special ordered it this way. Itís not an E2, it doesnít have a Kahler and itís always had a pickguard. Much cooler and more desirable than the shredder Explorers that Gobson was making at the time. Dual Dirty Finger humbuckers deliver big tone. Gibson branded tuners, Tuneomatic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece keep it rock solid. The finish is an incredible green metallic burst.
