so i was just looking around the GC website when i started to wonder which would be a better explorer style guitar, the futura or EX 400 (links below). i've always wanted an explorer style axe for E standard thrash metal (i like metallica so go figure) so which would be better sounding when run a Bugera 333 XL (look in sig). so yeah thanks.

Epiphone Futura

LTD EX 400

i'd take the esp for thrash. i have a gibson les paul and it makes unbellievable sounds, but i'd still take an esp for thrash

i like the Epi better.
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)
TC Electronic Nova Repeater
Lava Cables Clear Connect, Soar and Mini ELC

that epiphone just looks weird to me.

If you like metallica, and want an explorer shape... ESP would be the way to go. At least, that makes sense to ME.

EDIT: TS said, "Epipi"....

Ok having played both and having played alot of thrash through them ......... I say the LTD wins hands down. The emg' 81 and 60 are much more versatile too, and the neck on the LTD is to die for.

LTD Fx400
Ibanez S470dxqm w/Tone Zone
Buz Mcgrath's S7320 w/ emg 707s
Boss Gt-8

I would go for the LTD, I've played the FX version of the EX-400 and it was amazing.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...
