I need a new guitar and ive taken a liking to the gibson explorer, but once i saw the price, i decided to llok for an epiphone. Any suggestions?

The Epiphone is a nice guitar. It feels plays, and sounds good. The only 'iffy' thing, for me at least, is the pickups. I wouldn't say they're horrible as there are much wose out there, but I find them rather underwhelming.

Otherwise, it's a great guitar.

With a pickup change it will sound very, very close to the Gibson. Go for it.
