1999 Gibson Explorer Limited Edition?

Mine is a 2008 just like it, does not have a "Limited Edition" printed on it though.

 

The limited edition in the case is the color scheme, "Natural" Explorers seem to be made in batches few times a year, if you look right now with online retailers you will see that most likely is not available in this color.

 

That is not a bad or good, Gibson seems to only make them in limited numbers because this color is not the biggest seller at the same time some people could pay a premium to get this color since it is not always available.

 

Sorry to hear about your job and good luck.

What bothers me about this guitar is the mismatched wood on the left side of the body. Sure this is purely a cosmetic but for $1200, you would think Gibson would be a little more careful about selecting pieces of wood for the body of a natural finished guitar. Back in the late 70s/early 80s Norlin's, that imperfection would have merited the infamous "Second" stamp on the back of the headstock instead of the serial number
