Are they over priced for the quality? And could they play Lynyrd Skynyrd type southern rock through a Peavy Valve King 112?

no, they are very fairly priced, you get a insturment built in the US, with quality woods and gibson electronics, with a valveking and an explorer id find it very easy to get a southern rock tone, slightly overdriven amps with a mahogany guitar equals bliss

i have a new explorer and my only complaint was the finish on the neck.. i had to sand it with like 400 grade sandpaper.. anyways it goes from blues to southern rock to metal back around to funk/soul and punk and yeah.. i just love it.. i wouldnt trade my Explorer for the world.. ok so maybe if i could have 5 Explorers id trade it

Freebird solo was done with an Explorer. They're the only Gibsons I'd pay for.

I like them a lot. As far as the neck, that's nitro for you. Play on it for a while (couple months to a year) and it'll get less and less sticky on it's own. Polishing it a lot during that new period helps speed that up.

Lower your pickups a little, don't dime the gain on your amp, and I think you'll be very very happy with the sound.
