What's the tone difference between a LP, SG, and Explorer?. Why would certain styles choose one over the other? Not counting the various pickups they come with. Sorry if this is a dumb question.

You'll find certain styles choose one over the other because of design, aswell. I can't picture Eric Clapton with an Explorer.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

not sure about the explorer as i havn't heard one,
but the les paul is a hell of a lot heavier than an sg
it has alot more wood so the tone is fuller with more sustain,
were as the sg is is alot lighter and as such sounds brighter.
also stuff like paint and finish, how many pieces the body is made from, hardware etc will all
change the basic tone of the thing.

Explorers have a lighter build, suitable for metal. LPs are heavy guitars with nice deep tone and feel. SGs are pretty much inbetween, but can still get bright to deep tones. That's the basics. Pickups have a lot to do with it though.

Good Guitars
Good Pedals
Good Amps

That is all.

Well, try it and see for yourself.
