I don't know if Gibson has ever made anything similar to a Gibson Explorer custom, like they do with the Les Paul Custom. I could be wrong, but man I would buy an explorer with custom style binding with an ebony fretboard with block inlays in a heartbeat! I'm not talking about those explorer pros they made with that, I'm talking full-sized explorer goodness. I know some of the E2's had a custom look and feel to them, but I'm talking full on Explorer Custom. Anyone with me? I know they recently made something like this for Lzzy Hale from Halestorm, but come on Gibson! Make it for the rest of us, just don't put so much gold on it and offer some other colors! Crap... I'd buy her model if they offered it and change out the excessive gold!
