Well, since it was my 20th birthday last week and I got a juicy paycheck I'd think I'd spoil myself a little. I always wanted an explorer shaped guitar with a fixed bridged and high output pickups to play down tuned songs. I saw an Epiphone Futura at the local music store that was just that. I tried it, fell in love with it, and ended up buying it :P

Well, here it is.

I don't have any good quality camera but I guess this does the job :P

Anyway, it plays great and sounds great and am 100% satisfied. I even got a good deal for it.

Of course not. I never use them anyway, even in winter, my downstairs neighbors heat so much that I don't have to use mine.

Nice, the Finish is especially sexy, I just don't like the shape, I'd like it more if it was more of a regular Explorer shape, but whatever

HNGD that thing looks awesome im liking the Vol and Tone Knobs especially, what are you thinking of the active EMGs through your viper??

Plus people its not an Explorer its a totally different shape or ment to be anyway, its based on a Peavey shape that they did to rip off the Explorer but it caught on and became really popular.
Gibson/Epiphone regard them as Two different shapes not as a rip off.

I was surprised when it had Stock EMG's

That finish is nice though.

Yeah, becuase Buckethead is like 6' 8" and his hands are bigger than George Lopez's head.

The reason I don't have a tube amp is because I live in a appartement building and I try not to be to noisy and I HATE using headphones.
My neighbours allready complained that my former roomate and his girlfriend were making to much noice having sex in the middle of the night. I doubt they are going to take a screaming tube amp nicely : .

Anyway, it sounds good to my ears I guess that the important part.
