Hi 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.
