Explorer Users Unite!!

Who cares about SGs or Flying Vs or Les Pauls or Strats or Teles. Explorers are the best guitars in the world!

Who's got one? Who wants one? Who's in love with one? Who plans on stealing one? Share share share!

Are explorers good for soloing ( referring to Gibsons). And are ESPs as good as Gibsons?

Depends what ESP you get but i have an ESP EX-50. It has pretty good humbucker for heavy stuff but the neck pickup isnt that great.

EDIT: With a bit of tweaking on your amp you can get a very nice lead soud. good for melodic stuff.

Darn, like no explorers have 24 frets. I suppose those aren't too necessary, though.

Epi Explorer, very nice Bang for the $$$ ...
the Strat was signed by JS when he blitzkrieged GC with his awesome gear.



Proof that Satin is ideal for Black when you play a lot.

Coincidentally I just spotted the Epi Gothic Explorer at the local shop today. It plays alright, sounds great (for the money, eh :p) but the finish didn't appeal to me at all. Still it's an Explorer so it should be at least in your sig ^^

Mr. Joe Satriani!

In other news, I snagged a bolt-on Epi Explorer (MIK) from a schoolmate for $45 ... all the scratch I had with me, because the electronics were screwed and it had lots of buzzing. It has a built-in "chorus" effects and SD PAFs (valued more than $45 used). I'm going to get some proper pots, re-solder everything, get the proper caps, knobs, replace the nut, and flip it.

Pics as soon as I get a new camera.

An Explorer thread! WOHOO! I own a Gibson Explorer with the natural finish, oh yeah! I'm in love with it, and yes it is perfect for soloing, unless you need a whammy bar! What I love about the Explorer is that it is such a versatile guitar! It does all metal, hard rock, classic rock, blues and even pop!

EDIT: I have made an Explorer Owners Group. Anyone who owns an Explorer, or a guitar based of the classic Gibson Explorer can join!!!
