I don't usually like red guitars, but I love the wood grain on the heritage cherry ones. I can't stand the black explorers.

White is the only choice.

Crisp and clean, yet so badass at the same time. What's not to like?
Life is like an Empty Box, there could be something exciting in it at first look, but upon further review, well, it's empty.

White with black PG or white PG-or hell, even NO PG.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Korina. It looks so classy, but still looks like it will tear your head off at any second, if that makes sense

I swear, Gibson needs to get with the program regarding finishes on the Explorers, V's, and Firebirds. Hamer has the right idea with the flametop, but IMO, Dragonburst is the sexiest Explorer color scheme I've ever been blessed enough to see.

White.

However, if the black has gold hardware, it wins.

only possible colour id ever buy one of these in is silverburst. otherwise, explorers are ugly as sin.
I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling.

korina is so simple and the gold hard ware makes it classy
It's always the last day of summer and I've been left out in the cold with no door to get back in

If I had to choose, Korina for the natural+gold combo.

Honestly though I can't stand Explorers, especially after how awful the one I played felt. And yes, Gibson Standard. Not an Epi.
