L'avis de Deserteurs"Très agréable"

Gibson Explorer - Ebony
Fabriqué aux USA, 22 frets, 2 micro humbucker 1 500T pour le chevalet et 1 496R pour le manche.
1 sélecteur trois position et trois potards ; 2 volume et un de tonalité.
ATTENTION : Je ne suis pas certain des détails, il ne sont pas facile à trouver. Je me suis référé a cette adresse : http://www2.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/Explorer/Gibson-USA/Explorer/Specs.aspx


UTILISATION

Le manche est très agréable, assez fin, c'est une autoroute!
Elle pèse sont poids mais bon, il faut ce qu'il faut.
L'accès aux aigus est bon.
Le son est bon.


SONORITÉS

Je fais du punk rock, et j'apprécie ce mélange (métal/rock) de sonorité. Il est vrai que les micros d'origine donne plutôt une couleur "métal". J'avais changé le micro chevalet pour un seymour duncan, indéniablement meilleurs en terme de qualité. J'obtenais un son plus gras dans les basses, avec plus de haut medium qui faisait ressortir le son métallique des cordes (un peu comme la strato pour donner une idée). J'ai décidé de revenir au source en lui redonnant son micro d'origine, peut-être de moins bonne qualité mais plus en accord avec l'esprit Explorer.... c'est une question de goût....


AVIS GLOBAL

Je l'ai depuis 10 ans environ, j'ai une Epiphone SG standard et une Explorer dont je ne connais pas les détails, peut-être une 79. La standard est nettement plus facile a jouer, avec un manche plus fin.
La SG est agréable en terme de son mais ce n'est pas pareil, manche plus large, son riche en bas medium/ medium. Elle est plus typé rock que métal.

J'aime beaucoup son ergonomie, et son son. Pour le prix c'est déjà de la bonne qualité bien qu'il y en ai au dessus!
En tout cas je n'ai jamais regretté mon choix!!

L'avis de Eroachguitar(contenu en anglais)"A Classic Lives on in both tone and quality"

Gibson Explorer - Ebony
The Gibson Explorer was introduced in 1958. It was an outlandish design for the time, and as a result, low demand caused only 100 to be made. These are now incredibly collectible, sometimes fetching 6 figures on the auction block.

Gibson shelved the design, and reintroduced it in the 70's with a few updates, one of them being the choice of pickups. By this time, the Gibson 496 and 500T pickups had been introduced, giving players more power over the previous model of humbuckers, which were lower output.

As a result, the Explorer quickly became popular for the evolving sound of rock n' roll that pushed for more distortion and sustain.

The modern Explorer remains rather unchanged from its 70's incarnation, still sporting the 496R/500T pickup configuration, the hybrid 50's/60's set neck with 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, and two-volume/one-tone control configuration with 3-way toggle switch.

UTILIZATION

Someone at Gibson must have visited a psychic while designing the Explorer. The psychic would have said "guitar players will have the desire to play fast, much faster than today." because that's exactly what the Explorer is designed for - blazing speed. One listen to Brenden Small's guitar playing on any Dethklok album will confirm that shredding is a breeze on this guitar. Access to the higher frets is open, making those wide runs easy.

To facilitate this, the fretboard radius feels rather flat all the way down the neck, allowing for easier bending and faster runs than more traditional radius fretboards. Still, its nut width and scale length are Gibson standard sizes.

It doesn't take a keen eye to see that the Explorer isn't the most ergonomic design in the guitar world. In fact, it's rather large and awkward, which is ultimately why I ended up selling mine. Moving around a small stage or practice area almost always resulted in bumping the headstock or rear corner of the body on something or someone. However, despite its size, the Explorer is surprisingly light in weight.

SOUNDS

The Explorer does well with a variety of sounds, but it would be a mistake to assert that its forte is not rock and metal. The 500T comes alive through a properly distorting tube amp, driving the preamp into harmonic armageddon and evoking a midrange grind that is addictive. This pickup works well with everything from Bad Company-style plexi gain to Stoner Metal to compressed, soaring power metal.

The 496 does cleaner tones and alternate-picked runs surprisingly well, although lower notes tend to blend together on fast runs. It has a very warm, mellow quality without being weak.

OVERALL OPINION

The 2009 Explorer I owned was immaculately constructed, leading me to wonder where the complaints of quality with newer Gibson guitars was founded. The guitar played well, sounded excellent, and looked badass. I actually regret selling it, and will likely own another some day.

Gibson guitars have a lifetime warranty, and are still hand-made right here in the USA. There are plenty of great guitars made elsewhere for less money, and there are many excellent values from many manufacturers. I think every guitar player should own at least one Gibson in their lifetime, to have a chance to connect with a great American legacy that has helped shape an artform and a culture for more than 75 years.
