I do not know which brand of explorers you have been trying but explorers have the best balance of any guitar I ever tried. Some Flying v's have issues but not all. Try a Gibson explorer and you will see for your self.

My custom shop Jackson RR does not and I can't recall my Gibson Explorer '76 reisue ever doing that.

It depends on what specific model of explorer/flying V it is you're talking about.

My Gibson V balances absolutely perfectly.

Thanks. I have a pre lawsuit esp ltd explorer that neck dives bad. Think I'll sell and replace with a Gibson or epi.
