Explorer HP 2017 HCH

29.01.2017
I have her now 2 weeks at home.
I play so far only at home in the garage but I already feel like I've been her longer.

She sounds like a bell. You feel that they have power, they will! In agreements, in combination with nuts riffs but also in solo play. Also clean eg. With full chords and strumming.

She hangs tasty and you look straight down so the top positions, with me on the LP Custom which are lower, further away, less visible. Also comes from the difference in body but still.
This is better for smoothing your own experience while playing.
You come effortlessly to the highest positions, and plays just as easily those high notes on my Les Paul Custom 1986 can of course there'll be but really it comes with the new (HP) transition between body and neck slightly smoother, there is nothing more , you stay, like, longer hang in the top positions seems.

Playing easy, very inspiring for me (Hard) Rock Original Heavy Metal.
Through a Marshall JCM 800 50W top splitt channel.

Everything looks in mint off. Even smells good. Everything looks very solid from incl. SUITCASE!
G Force mood works fine, first had my reservations here but if you know how it works, just easy! Adds value.

Min point loss, there is no Explorer HP 2017owners Manuel at and not for use in tools supplied with.
There is however a book (Manuel?) For standard LP / Flying V to so I did nothing about it?

Unexpected windfall Gibson guitar strap. (Like at home).

Ad Braat, 54 years. Very satisfied. Happy!

Exciting "Gibson" innovations

15.01.2017
"Gibson Explorer HP 2017 HCH" became the sixth electric guitar in my life. It is now clear, "Explorer" is the best. I bought this model because I wanted to try "Gibson" innovations.
"Gibson" innovations - placed in this model - breathtaking. The handle is comfortable. Fretts honed perfectly, play really easy and pleasure. It must be remembered that these collars are 4 times more resistant to wear.
Somewhere I read a review, the 496R and 500T humbucker is quite sharp and aggressive. But for me 496R & 500T humbucker sounds warm, rich and powerful.
I prefer to use "G-Force" mechanics. Practical thing when a concert crowd rages and there is no time to combine the strings.
It seems to me that the "G-Force" approximate combined. I noticed that all guitar tuners shows different results. And let's not forget the "G-Force" calibration when changing string type.
The "G-Force" mechanics is very convenient to combine manually - no problems.
Design quality - screws, tone control - not super ideal. A screw on the back of the guitar is not very good quality. But it is a trifle. This planet can not be perfect.
Adjustable titanium zero-collar saddle - it's handy because it's made of metal.
I've seen twice how the plastic saddle breaks during the concert. What to do? We are not professional musicians. And to the concert only a guitar.
Very good that is "Gibson Explorer HP 2017 HCH" with Hardcase. There is a sense of security. "Gibson" suitcase - solid as a medieval knight shield. If someone is attacked .... :)
