Greetings,
I've been playing guitar for 3 years now and my current guitar is Dean Vendetta XM. The plan is to get myself a second one, Epiphone Gothic Explorer which costs about 280 €. Now the problem is that I don't have chance to try out the guitar myself before buying to see if I like it. Could you guys point out the main differences between Dean and Explorer? Would it be a good purchase?
Also, feel free to recommend other guitars too because my budget can go up to 500 €.If it gives you any help- I mainly play metal and use heavier gauge strings for tunings like A or B.

Thanks in advance.

You might want to consider an Epiphone Prophecy guitar or an equivalent LTD 400 series instead.

You might want a longer scale guitar than the Gibson/Epiphone 24.75" and go for something at a minimum of 25.5" scale like an Ibanez Snake-bite, LTD EX-2xx
2002 PRS CE22
2013 G&L ASAT Deluxe
2009 Epiphone G-400 (SH-4)
Marshall JCM2000 DSL100
Krank 1980 Jr 20watt
Krank Rev 4x12 (eminence V12)
GFS Greenie/Digitech Bad Monkey
Morley Bad Horsie 2
MXR Smart Gate

It is a Explorer type guitar made by ESP/LTD.

I typed Ibanez by mistake

The LTD Snakebyte is 24.75" and way out of his price range anyway.

Having a short scale length isn't too much of an issue. Just use heavier strings. Rotosound do some ultra-heavy string gauges.
