I am a huge metallica fan and play realy close to exclusively metallica and pantera and i was wondering if this guitar would get me the right sound? i know james uses EMG 81/60 pups but i dunno if i could play solos on this? (i've never played this guitar so i dunno)
\

so ya wondering if could get right sound + if i could solo with it (like kirks solos not the slow mop one)

You can play solos on *any* guitar. As long as it has strings.

That said, you can't really play Metallica or Pantera solos without a Floyd Rose, so you may want to look at the M400 and the MH400, with a trem swap down the road.

I have the older EX-351 that I've modded to EX-400 specs (EMG 81/60, Earvana, etc) and it's an excellent guitar. It has a great tone and feel. And as far as Explorer (or Explorer-esque) guitars go, this one has a geat neck joint and fairly easy upper fret access, so solos shouldn't really be any problem.
