I am in love with the Gibson Explorer's body style, but can't afford it. I found a Dean ZX for $199 on guitarcenter.com and was wondering if anyone can rate or review this sweet looking axe so I can figre out what I want to do. Thanks in advance!

Don't spring for low end deans.
I'd lean more towards Epiphone XP.

And always remember tone before looks.
