1980 Gibson Explorer E2 John Waite The Babys
John visited the Kalamzoo plant in 1980 and hand selected the timber and materials to build this unique guitar, the guitar was used by John on the final Babys tour in 1980.
A caricature of JWs face was custom imprinted adjacent to the pickup selector switch and his name was etched into the truss rod cover, all of this custom work was undertaken at the Gibson plant.
The guitar was finished in Alpine white and is in exceptionally clean and all original condition. It is certainly one of a kind and comes with the original Gibson hardshell case.
Anyone attending any of the shows from the final tour by the band will have seen this guitar in action.
