So im getting my second guitar and im not sure wat to get. I dont want to go over $1000 and i dont like epiphones and i was thinking bout a schecter. i dont really like the fender strat shape, i dont mind it but i rather sumthin else. i was also thinking bout a gibson explorer faded and changing the pickups, so if u have any idea for pickups also tell me which 1s u think r good.

Well I just got a Schecter Omen-6 and I love it, so you should definitely look into them. Check out Jackson if you want something more metal-like.
You know, you're probably reading this saying "Hey, I'm bored, maybe this'll be funny?"
It's not. Too bad. No, I am not refunding you those 6 seconds of your life. So :P

I have a Schecter Damien.

Its really sweet.

I also have an Epiphone Goth Explorer.

The Damien's neck is so much faster. Deffinitely get a Schecter.

Or a Dean. Ya cant go wrong with a Dean.

does Dean have any good explorer shaped guitars?

They have some really nice ones.

The sunburst finishes on those explorers are amazing.

Only thing thats weird is the Dean headstock on the Explorer body. But I love it.

My friend has one, and he loves his too.

EMG's. I'd suggest a guitar with the Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB in the bridge.
