Explorer: A Pictorial History

He wanted something new, something different. Together with a local artist, McCarty worked on guitars that were made up of straight lines, and three new guitars were born – the Moderne, The Flying V and the Explorer. This book delves deep into the history of the Explorer through a myriad of pictures of its versions over time. A must have for guitar collectors!
