hey everyone,

like probably some of you here, i want an explorer guitar, but simply cant afford those gibsons, and hell, even the epiphones. i was looking into remakes of em, like the deans, and kramers, but i didnt know if anyone could reccomend one that they have/played. ive seen the imperial by kramer, and the dean zx. also the slammer by hamer. so any opinions/comments, id apreciate it. thanks.

i have a gibson explorer it is a good guitar but i understand the financial restraint at getting one, anyway LTD makes a couple good ones the EX-400 or the EXD-351 both great guitars, Hammers arent half bad, Dean 79 Zs are ok with a good pickup change, Ibanez destroyers are another good option
i wouldnt get a cheap rip off verson of a guitar
i would just save up the money and get a good decent guitar
trust me in the end it will be better
Peavey Rotors are most likely a good guitar. I've liked all the peaveys i've played.
