2022 Gibson Mod Collection Explorer – OHSC – Satin Black – Project Guitar/Parts

$ 1379.99

For your consideration is a mean looking Satin Black Gibson Explorer from the Gibson Mod Collection. This particular instrument is dated back to September of 2022, but I acquired it in May of 2023 from the original owner. I planned on doing a full blackout on this guitar, started gutting wiring, and replacing hardware, but due to changes at work and home, all projects will be on hold for the time being.

Cosmetically, there are no deep scratches, dents, gouges, scrapes, scuffs or chips present on the guitar. With this matte finish, very faint marks can be seen in certain lights. Some were detailed in the checklist from Gibson. The finish is durable, but it was designed to wear and age. In the top crook of the body where the wrist rests, there is a sheen, and a little bit of exposed wood from Hetfield-inspired down picking riffs, but plenty of life to tell your own story on this beautiful axe. Neck and Frets are clean showing very little (if any/visible) wear. Headstock free of damage, and hardware is in amazing shape. All paperwork, certificate of authenticity, and pictured case candy included with purchase.

Three pickguards included with this guitar. The original mod guard was the Red tortoise shell, but if you want to go traditional, I’ve included a 3 ply W/B/W deep bevel cut, and a 5 ply B/W/B/W/B guard (currently installed). Plastic is still on the 2 newer custom ordered from GaryGs Guitars (eBay). As pictured, black Grover mini-rotomatics, Dunlop dual design strap pins, and TonePros Bridge/Tail piece are currently installed on the instrument. Also, I’m unloading a plethora of Gibson compatible parts with this listing. Black and chrome finished Grover tuners, black metal knobs, speed knobs, bridges, tail pieces, switches, screws, etc. Again, I’m on a time crunch with things at work/home right now, so the guitar projects are on an indefinite hold.
