You know, I think a normal Explorer would look pretty badass without the upper horn. Like, the side that faces the ground on the Reverse, but the other side, and the big bottom part, of a normal Explorer.

EDIT: Kinda like this. Forgive the 30-second MSPaint-job.

Well I was wondering if they made other ones because I think the idea of a reverse explorer, but the headstock and lightning pick guard and other features kill this one.

That has got to be one of the ugliest guitars ever built. I'd rather play the wangcaster than this.

I bet the same person that came up with that reverse explorer idea is the same person that came up with the hot pocket theme

Yeah.... That looks weird, they could have atleast kept the regular headstock.

Eh, I don't like how it points downwards...I like the original explorer because of the stance, the largest horn points upwards which makes it seem much more dominant. The reverse just looks like it's falling down, and the headstock doesn't help at all.

its better than the reverse strat.
i dont know if it was an official release, or just a custom thing, but i saw one in a guitar shop somewhere. i actually thought i was gonna throw up.

Yeah I'm not a fan of how they stuck a Moderne headstock on it but oh well. Most of the reverse guitars I don't like with the exception of the Thunderbird. Looks better than the nonreverse one IMO.

This thread only with a gibson site link was made two days ago.

Searchbar anyone?
