I'm really jealous (not envying or anything, but i want a Gibby explorer). Appearantly they're amazing to play and sound great (but if it's an epiphone, a pup change is recommended by almost everyone)

^Epi used to make a black explorer that looked just like the gibson one.

Dude gibsons sound amazing, if they arn't rip-off gibsons and yes they indeed exsist, it says Gibson on my guitars headstock
#14
Gibby Explorer sounds fine. What it says on the headstock would help, because there are thousands of other Explorers. Does it have any extras (like built in effects?)?? What the headstock says would really help.

I am not really sure, My uncle sent me these photos with his band (the guitar is my grandfathers but my uncle uses it sometimes) through E-mail, those are the only photos of the guitar.

I haven't seen the actual guitar itself.

ok, when you see the guitar, find out what it says on it and get back to us, we'll be able to tell you exactly who made it (it does look like a Gibson though)

You are one lucky SOB if that is a Gibson Explorer. They go for $1100 and up nowadays.
