    images.jpg Hi [​IMG]

    I love Explorer shape. I have had an Epiphone Explorer Pro that It looks awesome but It plays like shit. I upgraded It with better pickups, electronics, ... Finally I sold It because the balance was really bad. I also changed the position of the strap to improve its balance. That didn't help.

    Actually Gibson has a new Explorer model. '70 style model with 70s tribute Burstbuckers. Do somebody tryed? Has It a good balance?. I usually buy online from the famous German store bigger and more known but they have show me many times that they haven't TOP products. I have bought several guitars with them and they have always come with small defects.
    Can someone recommend me a store in Europe or UK that has excellent service and where they send me a guitar in TOP / perfect condition.?
    thoughts?
    Thanks in addvance.

    Thanks brother!
    I talked to a friend and he didn't recommend it to me. We've both tried a Gibson Explorer Lzzy Hale from another great friend of us and this '70 style Explorer doesn't look/feel like Lzzy Hale Gibson Explorer.

    Awesome guitar! But I would like an Explorer with bending guitar sides on the neck. Like my LP's.
    Anyway I'm seeing an used '16 Explorer (black) with gforce. From time to time I get sick. Sick to buy me an Explorer. :sick:
