Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I just received the new 2020 Gibson explorer. I first noticed damage to the case. There are 5 tares on the bottom of the case. After opening the case I looked it over. The 3 way toggle switch was loose. Then I noticed the crack in the finish where the neck meets the body. It runs the length of the seam on the left side of the neck. Other than that it's an amazing guitar. The pickups are amazing. Intonation it perfect. Pickup hight it good. The special angled slots on the nut due to it being an explorer is really nice. It really helps it stay in tune. With the exception of the loose switch and crack on the neck joint it's a really beautiful guitar. It just sounds amazing.
