We were looking to purchase an electronic drum kit for our son. We visited PMT back in September to have a look at the range of items they had. While there an assistant came to offer help and advice on the different sets that were available. My son was also allowed to try them out too. After choosing one he liked we went away to research as it was intended for a Christmas present. On looking the item up it showed that for the same money you could get extra items. We then returned and asked if they would price match as we believe in trying to support the local business, but ultimately things do come down to price and value. To our delight they were happy to price match, and as a result we even upgraded. The service from viewing to purchasing was really good, as these musical instruments are not cheap and you need good honest advice when purchasing. Would totally recommend this company.

Overview

The new Gibson 2016 electric guitars bring back traditional features and models that helped to turn the brand into a true symbol of rock'n'roll. The Gibson Explorer 2016 T resurrects the iconic design that's well-loved by heavy rockers and even blues players alike.

With a supremely comfortable neck and powerful humbuckers, this guitar rocks!

Unveiled in 1958 alongside the Flying V, the Explorer 2016 T Electric Guitar is one of the first truly radical electric guitar shapes to hit the worck world, and was way ahead of its time in its day. Popular with heavy rockers from the late '60s onward, it has been an iconic design for nearly 60 years, beloved in its original form.

The Explorer 2016 T offers good playing balance, and its select solid mahogany delivers a fat, punchy sound that will crunch, grind and wail through a 496R Hot Ceramic neck pickup and 500T Super Ceramic bridge pickup. The Gibson USA's 2016 Traditional range include Gibson's original neck width of 1 11/16 inches at the nut, quality manual tuners, a traditional Graph Tech nut, and a thicker one-piece rosewood fingerboard with a hand-rubbed oil finish for a plush look and feel.

Specs:

  • Tuners: Mini-Grover tuners
  • Neck width: Original 1 11/16" neck width
  • Nut: Graph Tech nut
  • Pickups: Powerful 496R and 500T humbuckers
