Hi Guys and Gals,

I know there is an explorer thread, but that's mainly just pics.

I need some of your helpful and reliable suggestions. I'm in the market for an Explorer guitar and an 'obvious' choice is a Gibson, but are the better, and more importantly, cheaper alternatives?

Epiphones make good ones, which I have read in previous forums (but old forums from like 2011), so just would like some new insight. Anybody try the new Chapmanns for example?

Thanks!!!
