alright, i am looing for a new guitar to replace my old one, because i am starting a band with my friends. i need help deciding between the epiphone goth 1958 explorer hardtail, epiphone 1958 explorer(normal), and the dean z-x.
post here about quality only, not looks.
thank you very much

if your going off quality then plain and simple dont get an explorer because their for looks other than that there horribly off balance and a little muddy sounding imo

so far, out of other reviews ive read, ur the only one who felt that way
i know about the off balanced neck, but ive heard its not TERRIBLE, but thanks for ur input anyway

it is good in a way without fret markers to teach me to navigate more accurately around the fretboard, but on the down side, it will take some getting used to

Dont think there's much difference quality wise between either epiphone but not sure about the dean. I'd go for the epiphone 1958 explorer just because the finish is better than on the gothic. The gothic feels a little cheap. End of the day get em side by side and play em both. Follow your ears!
