Identify my Explorer

Recommended Posts

I have found a 1985 custom shop edition explorer unplayed. It has what looks to be a

factory midi installed. I'm just not familiar with the guitar and can't seem to find another

like it on the net. I was hoping you guys might have some insight.

Thanks for your time

I have a book titled The Ultimate Gibson Book and it list most if not every Gibson model and may have info thats helpful. According to this book in 1985 Gibson released the Explorer Synthesizer with a Roland: 700 sythesizer installed and it came in Alpine White and Ebony. But this is all the info the book has.

Ok I found out everything about the guitar. It's a roland gk1 as best as I can tell

Old technology for todays standards. I could probably track down the cable and

controller etc. and have some fun with it. All in all it's an explorer that plays great.

I appreciate all who looked.

The "Explorer Synthesizer" model was available in 1985. It works with the Roland 700 Sythesizer system. The "Explorer Synthesizer" was offered in Alpine white or Ebony finish. You could probably find the module and cord on eBay.
