Sammy Hagar Limited Edition Signature Explorer

Gibson USA introduces the Limited Edition Sammy Hagar Explorer! Crafted in the image of the original Explorer of 1958—a guitar that was blindingly ahead of its time back in the day—and graced with an original blend of Sammy's Red Rocker and Chickenfoot styling, the Sammy Hagar Explorer is an eye-catching axe from every angle, and equipped for everything from searing to sublime tonal adventures, too.

Here's your chance to be in a music video!

Hey Redheads! Here's your opportunity to be part of a Sammy Hagar Music video! Some of you may have heard Sammy's new take on the Jimmy Buffet classic 'Margaritaville' at a few of our recent shows. Well, we decided to make a rocking video to go along with debut of the single and we are starting to collect footage to go along with this new recording. Sammy wants to give it a good time/beach/laid back feel and what better footage to use than Cabo footage? And you of course know the best part about Cabo... the Birthday Bash at the Cabo Wabo Cantina of course!

I miss him.

Born John S. Carter in East St. Louis, Illinois, he grew up moving around the West and Midwest, the only child of an oilman and an indefatigable Arthur Godfrey fan.
