Explorer Pro Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

A black Explorer Pro popped up here on Craigslist today so I traded my US Tele for it. Awesome guitar. Fast, thin-ish neck, great tone and that unique Gibson vibe. I've not been able to find much info online. Any info or links would be appreciated. I heard these were a limited production model. Does anyone know how many of each finish were made? Being a black guitar, I assume it does not have a maple top, but rather a completely mahogony body. Would like to confirm.

 

Also, I would like to buy an original Gibson hard case for this guitar. Can this still be had?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!
