    I had an Gibson Government Explorer on order since Februray.
    I have asked from time to time when it will be delivered.
    Then the told me the first series was stopped and there was a second one.
    I asked about the specs. Now I got some info from Gibson Europe.
    The are made of the same materials, but different color (some kind of beige). The case is standard black. No info on numbers. COA by Harry, as in the first series.

    Did anyone see these things or has more detailed info about them?

    I've seen pictures of the second edition, it's called Government Tan - basically beige as you say though, ugly as hell.

    Why would they put all black hardware, but a nickel or chrome bridge/TP on the LP

    Weird, unless it's just my eyes playing tricks

    I like the Color
    But lets see how limited they will be?(I am sure there will be more made then the 100 they made of the Explorers and flying Vs the 1st time}
    Hummm No COA and Green case?(not good}.But if priced at $800 New then it would be a very good price,,thats what I paid for my Explorer.....JT

    You can be such a troll. Anyone who's come across your posts here, TGP, TDPRI, HC, Gibson Forums, etc. can tell that your entire bit is to brag about how much of a ninja you are in getting deals, and putting down others that don't meet your lofty standards.

    Do you even play the ****ing guitar?

    I also think they have a flying V also for $999
    It does say I think its a 2014?and comes with a Gig bag but also says it comes with a hardshell case.
    But would not surpise me if they make another 300 guitars for 2014?
    Good luck and hope you get the guitar..........JT
