I have these two guitars in mind for my next guitar.
I was wondering how good they are. The review on Guitarcenter seemed pretty positive on both. I was looking into the Goth explorer not the on the other korina one. And is the G-400 Cherry color close to the heritage cherry color cause in the pictures it looked kind of a weird cherry.Are they decent guitars? I play Hard rock and metal and i need a new axe because i dont think my one now has a lot of life left. Any advice on either would be great.

Doesn't matter, you'll get more benefit out of a new amp right now. Get a new amp, then a new guitar.
If you insist, my vote goes to the Explorer, but do check out the Korina one, it's quite nice.

well i have been leaning towards the explorer and might go for it just change the pickups

sgs are good, i own one, be warned, its neck heavy, which i dont think the explorers are. Ive never played one though, so i cant tell you about them.

never trust gc reviews though, I once read one with someone claiming that a marshall MG was the best amp ever

The Explorers are neck heavy too. I moved the strap button to the back like they are on the Gibson versions. Now the neck does NOT drop to the floor when you take your hand off the neck.

tbh every goth explorer i have tried, the neck feels really dry, like i cant slide easy on it, it feels kinda dusty i would say, basically i dont like the neck cause it feels dry, i like the korina one better.

I took really fine sandpaper (can't remember exact grit) to the neck on mine (It's a Goth). I lightly sanded it and now it looks gloss black and is super smooth.

ive played both the g400 and the korina explorer i liked the explorer better it had a thinner neck and sounded quite nice even though they vere both good. the only problem i found with the explorer ws it was really heavy especially in that massive epiphone case.

if you really want the all black look like the goth explorer maybe get the black korina explorer and put a black pickgutard on it. but the finish is gloss not matte like the goth explorer

well i like the matte finish ,but not the all black pickguard. i would defiataly change the pickguard to a white one. But i dont like the gold hardware of the korina and thats more crap to replace

from what i have seen the g-400 is top heavy and its like if you let go of the neck it swings down really fast. that could potentially damage the guitar if it hits something
remember kids, you can't spell bass without ass

Interesting, i might buy a goth now, because i like how they look, but i hate that dryness.

The gibson neck feels excellent compared to the epi one, its a gibson thats why, it might not be the best build quality right now, but if you compare it to a epi, it will be much better constructed because you get what you pay for. Im just saying you should try out the exact model you plan on buying before you buy it, because some might feel wonderful and some might feel like crap. I tried the gibson version and various other gibson ones, and compared them to the epi version and the gibson had a better feel/sound to it than the epi, its just my opinion though.

1966 g-400? it's heritage cherry like you want, not some ripoff cherry finish. Youll have to wait until it comes out again, though, but seeing as your fund for it is one dollar, that shouldn't be a problem



yeah i like those too just havent see them anywhere
to try one
