as some of you may know, i am crazy about gibson guitars... and that i used to have an epiphone explorer... well ever since i sold it there has been a pretty damn hole that my les paul doesnt quite fill and a few weeks ago i saw this black 2005 gibson explorer(same year as my old epi) at guitar center for 649 used on clearance and i was pondering upon the idea of buying it....


... so anyway, i went in there today and it was still there so i figured what the hell and tried it out again. the jack was cutting out badly, a salesman came up to me and asked if i needed any help and i said yeah i really wanna buy this explorer but the fact that the jack is bad is kinda turning me away. so the guy brings out a brand new 2008 one just like it and i was like dude im not dropping a grand on a new one when i can have this one 3 years old for almost half the price... so he was like well we can fix the jack for you if you want but it will be a $45 dollar upcharge. so i said how about i take it as is? the sales dude kinda hesitated and was like well sure but...... and i cut him off and said i dont want to pay 649 on a guitar that wont even work when i plug it in and he said how about 575? i played off like i was seriously thinking about it and was like i really dont have the money


(i could so tell this guy was desperate to get rid of this thing so i took him for all he had)

after that i kinda was like ehhhhh and he was like how about 560? and i said 525 and you have a deal and the guy was like right on man lets go bring this over to the counter


so anyway after all that was done i dropped 200 dollars down on it.... and im picking it up in 2 weeks when i get paid again... im actually very happy...... even though the guitars electronics are problematic i can fix them myself so im really stoked about this thing


and i know my grammar sucks so i am truly sorry.... but in 2 weeks when i get it i will have pictures for all you guys

Same.. Same.. I absolutely LOVE the SG. It's got the comfort of a strat, it's got good upper fret access, and it's got good sustain & tone!
