I have come across, in my mindless city wandering, a second hand Epiphone Explorer. Who cares right? Well, its got a built in MIDI pickup and control system, and I figured, well, Epiphone did a special, right? Why is it I cant find a shred of evidence of ANY explorer having a factory fitted MIDI pickup?
Anyway, so maybe someone had it fitted by a pro, my question is weather I should buy the fecker. Its got a crack in the 'natural' finnish but I have stickers .
Has anyone played an Epi Explorer? If so, how are they? and what about the MIDI?
Thoughts anyone?

If its cheap get it.

I hear Explorers get bad neck dive. I don't know though, not really my thing.

If set up properly, an Epi Explorer is not a bad axe, it certainly isn't fantastic, but not bad. As far as the MIDI goes, that's gotta be after market. I've never used a MIDI pickup in a guitar before so I can't help with that. All I can say is test it out and see if you like it!

Point taken, testing it is RickRoll lol

I've played one, wasn't to bad, was quite comfortable to play. It didn't have a MIDI pickup though. For that price, I probably wouldn't buy it, mind you I'd never buy an Explorer, compare it to how much they cost new where ever you live etc.

MIDI pickup (Hexaphonic) is a pickup that allows a seperate signal for each string to be passed to a computer for moddeling. So basically, its lets you play an organ/trombone/any other instrument in the world through your guitar. very usefull if you're into heavy effects and making strange things happen with your guitar.

dude, 250 pounds isnt THAT CHEAP for a used instrument. You can probably get a new one (and not outdated too) for just a bit more...like, 300-400 pounds

They're £250 new. A Roland GK3 midi pickup is £90. Second hand it's definitely not worth £250.

it wouldnt have the fitted midi pickup, thats the point. how is it outdated anyway? its just a little tarnished.
