well decided i want an explorer: between these , any comments on which one you like?
1. gibson explorer (regular sized one, not the slimmed down model, im a big dude!)
2. hamer standard (seems from reviews its 50/50 to get a decent one)
3. esp 400 spalted maple (looks kool in my opinion + has emg's, i have a dinky with seymours so it would be different)
i have an LTD EX-351. The LTD/ESP explorers are pretty good guitars. I havent tried the gibson or hamers, but the one downside to mine is that it is a little on the heavy side. Other than that, i have no complaints about the guitar at all.

LTD EX-351
Peavey 5150 head
Marshall 1960A
Boss NS-2 Noise Supressor
BBE 482i Sonic Maximizer
