Maybe my 2019 Explorer had the same problem.....to much pickup cable. The employee solved this quick.....Living in germany i asked Gibson europe how this is even possible. The answer from mother USA: at this stage of progress on the line there is no chance QC can find out.......
I think so too. Bought 4 Gibson since 2017 and 3 of them had strange flaws (2 Explorer, 1 SG). Only the last one, a 50th Les Paul Standard P90 Goldtop was nearly perfect. May i ask what was wrong with your Explorer?
Sorry, little offtopic :bowdown
Joe, your replacemet looks cool. Have fun...
Cool video, thx for that. I have mine for half a year now and it is a great playing and sounding guitar. And after years of questionable QC issues, Gibson made this one right with no building flaws.
As a humbucker guy who never really find love for a Strat, i also had doubt about the P90. But...
I dont get it. Gibson allows other builders to build guitars that they dont build but for what "we" are still waiting: '58 Korina Explorer' s and V' s. They still make them "wrong" and go on with that.
I understand, now they can knock on "design thief" doors. What a joke.
Had never thought about that :hmm: Sometimes im looking for an AR30 in black to fill the case.....was a good guitar back then and my first "real" electric guitar (the "herti-caster" was not). So, for sentimental reasons i guess not :)
mh, i always thought: "Shaws should be stamped "137/138 372/373 498/499" followed by the date..."
Is this wrong? I know the white plastic and the rough magnet is a dead give away, but i wasn´t sure all the years :hmm:
