Gibson Gothic Explorer Limited Edition Reviews
Well..this is one of those bad things turn into good things epics,it started out that a very late jammin' session results in the demise of my cherished jap fender bitng the old fridge,thanks to the help of a mad girl friend.So, out comes her credit card and we go shopping.I happen to know this guy who owns a pawn shop and ask him about guitars.To my displeasure i ask him about fenders or gibson, he tells me without haste he has a gibson stored away next door.Well ,he says it came from Edmonton Canada,and its been checked by the cops etc,i look at this thing and see that its totally black except for a half moon and star pearly in the middle of the neck,and a picture of old man gibson on the back.I ask him how much and he says 600 bucks..that's Can.dollars remember...it comes with a custom case that says Gibson U.S.A also.WELL I GET THIS THING HOME AND HOOK IT UP TO THE PEAVY AND WOW!,i mean what a cruel, crisp, effortless sound from hell is unleashed and i think ..i better look this one up on the internet,and obviously poor Tien, the pawn shop owner,has done a little more research on his guitar collection after i told him what he sold me,mind you were still good friends,but i do get asked if ill sell him back a peice of the devil he gave to me that day.
I could go on all day about this guitar,but if you really want to get a feel of what this guitar sounds like go to the gibson web site and listen to a demo,remember, its the GOTHIC EXPLORER LIMITED EDITION,not the regular explorers.Also i would like to mention i do not work for or am affiliated with Gibson manufacturing in any way shape or form,im just a guitar player from the great white north. Thank you for your time and this web site. Jerome FayantJerome rated this unit on 2004-10-23.
