Gordon Smith Explorer Guitars

The Gordon Smith Explorer appears to be a nice Explorer reproduction. It is actually called the Gordon Smith Explorer. Although it has not been reviewed yet at Ultimate Guitar, some of the other GSG models have been reviewed so you may be able to gauge your interest on those reviews.

I will admit, I have never played any Gordon Smith guitar, and none of the playing public that I personally know have ever played one.

So, in a nutshell, I have no personal knowledge of Gordon Smith Guitars at all. Any information I have compiled has come through reading magazines or internet articles.

Gordon Smith Explorer Shaped GuitarTheir official website is located here. However, I don't see any GSG distributors listed for the USA.

The lack of American distributors is a key indicator that these guitars are not as popular here as they are elsewhere.

As I troll the GSG website,, I see a quote from an American guitar magazine that says Gordon Smith guitars are to England what Gibson guitars are to the United States.

These are strong words to identify with GSG however I will leave the opinion on Gordon Smith guitars wide open. They have an excellent reputation and their guitar manufacturing dates back over twenty five years.

They do list the Explorer as a current model and you can check it out for yourself here. It is available for plenty of options for those who know what they want in a guitar.

It looks as though they use Brazilian cedar for the guitar body and Brazilian Mahogany for the neck, coupled with a Rosewood fretboard to cap off a great looking instrument.

This is all the specific info I have right now but if you'd like to add to this description I'd appreciate any information sent to me right here.

I'm looking for descriptions, pictures, production years, availablilty, and that sort of info. Any kind of thoughts and overall experience with playing a Gordon Smith Explorer would be ideal. If you can help out, please do.
