i'm looking to buy a second guitar as a backup and i really like the explorer. i don't want to spend more than 500$ and i would like something that's good for metal but also some more classic rock. has anyone ever tried the epiphone explorer 1958 version or maybe the ltd xplorer? if it helps i play through a laney LC 50 tube amp and i play mostly grunge and trash metal
I own the epiphone 1958 explorer.

its a great guitar but like EyeHatePunks said get some new pups in it.

Also it can be a bit head-heavy but play around with the legnth of your strap and get some locks on it and it should be great
