I need some recommendations. I'm looking to buy a A nice guitar (used). I like my friends G-400 because its got a nice neck, and a good sound. But, I've also always loved the shape of the explorers. I usually play sabbath style stuff, the who, and 70's rock. But I also want a guitar that can play iron maiden style metal. Some insight by people who have played either or both guitars would be great. Thanks.

I've played the epi explorer and a standard g-400 and personally I like the sg but if you like the way the explorer feels then go with it. Its more unique sounding and looking.
New Setup:
Epiphone Les Paul Custom (Black SG w/ 3 Hum.)
Peavey Classic 50
EHX Metal Muff
Cry Baby 535Q

Thanks I think i'll go with the explorer because it comes with a case, and i like being a little different and it will be easier to get noticed

I like both. I have an Epiphone Explorer and I had an Epiphone G400 for a while. The only reason I sold it was cause I needed the money and a guy I worked with offered me more than I paid for it. I would not sell my Explorer though so I guess I like them better. Anyway both are good guitars and have the same pickups in them so get the one you are more comfortable playing.

I would go with the explorer, but thats just my opinion.
