    Yeah man, the Solar in the OP is pretty much the ideal Explorer. All I've got is one of those ones that isn't a 5 pound Indonesian Superstrat for dudes who only play superstrats but want to get into "EXTREME SHAPES" that are really just uglier superstrats.

    On a related note, this is the ideal telecaster.



    And have I showed you the ideal Jazz bass?



    Don't even get me started on the ideal jazz arch top.

    That pre-order went FAST. I got a few more weeks before I can justify throwing the cash at it, but it shall be mine!

    Hey man, even the Jackson Kelly is a pale imitation of the Explorer, and Jackson is my favorite brand.

    At least Ola's has short scale.

    I mean, I get why there are so many derivatives. Full sized Explorers are really fucking heavy and massive guitars, but you can't beat the original.

    Hamers are awesome too. As far as derivatives go, the Ibanez Destroyers are cool, but they are also their own thing.

    But these are just so plain and basic... together with the distressed Evertune / hardware it looks fantastic!!!
    Same. Love the distress on the Evertune.

    To be fair, proper Explorers are fucking huge.

    To the point that Gibson themselves also did a downsized redesign with fucked up angles, just because "real Explorers" are too big for most people.

    That's what the "E90" designation means, ~90% of the size of a "real Explorer. There's a reason people are always like, "Explorers are so cool, I wonder why you don't see more of them".

    That's pretty much everyone's reaction picking up an E2 for the first time. "Holy fuck, this is a massive guitar".

    E90 for reference.

    That's fuckin' sweet! I get what you're saying and I could have saved this whole discussion by saying E-shape, but one more Explorer got exposed to me so it's only a bonus. And yes, Kelly's always reminded me of a shape you'd see on Rockstar Barbie.
