  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've been pining after an Explorer for a bit now and I just found this guy on Reverb. https://reverb.com/item/37058795-edwards-by-esp-e-ex-120d-bk-explorer-type-electric-guitar-made-in-japan What do y'all think of Edwards as a brand? Worth the money? How's it compare to a Gibson for twice the...

    I still have a sub going to the German Gitarre & Bass magazine. This was last month's cover: Inside it said the LP and SG were part of a series of five different Gibson style guitars. :holy: What is that on the far right?! :fap: Gallery here...
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Years ago I used to read through this guy's build threads on Ultimate-Guitar and lust after the crazy stuff he did, and admire the impressive attention to detail and all the gorgeous materials he used. Well one day I'm browsing Reverb searching for Explorer style guitars and spot this. I...

    This has been a few weeks in the making, but it's finally done! A while ago I decided I need an Explorer in my life. I deeply regret selling my Thunderhorse, and have wanted to grab another one ever since. Not often having the funds free for a Gibson, I thought I'd bide my time and grab a...
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've just uploaded a video demo of the monstrous Lundgren M6 set. They're loaded into my home-built explorer, Ice, which goes straight into Reaper. All tones are from EZMix 2. Mega riffage awaits!

    This is the aboslute best instrumental I know. It's just perfect. And for many years now, I've wanted to conquer this beast, but it wasn't actually until last night I decided to REALLY get down with it... I knew it was going to be a challenge, but the first third is the easy part... Soon I will...

    Am I on the right track if I say that Flying Vs are generally very light, while Explorers are heavy?? That kinda puts my interest backwards beacause I would rather have an Explorer, but most Vs I've tried have been light, and most Explorers have been heavy. They are basically the same thing...

    OMG OMG OMG OMG :flex: I love both how Explorers and Ibanez Destroyers look, and this is the absolute middle between! Fuck me, I already have a build coming in and now I got excited about this :ugh: If I built one of these I would go Tony Iommi-style with a 24.75" scale locking nut neck and...

  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Growing up one of the first albums I owned myself was Master of Puppets and I listened to it repeatedly, learning the whole album back to front. I never bothered with the leads as I always preferred rhythm playing and singing. So naturally as I got more and more into Metalica I gravitated toward...

    Hey gang! I really don't want to sell this, but I need to help finance building a Fast Eddie strat and a Marshall for my Motorhead trib gig, and I'm just not bonding with it yet like my other planks. These Explorers are fairly uncommon to start with, but this one happens to be in the rarest of...
  16. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    The only guitar I have any desire to play anymore is my Gibson Explorer. I just developed this unquenchable thirst for baseball bat necks and TOMs and massive mahogany tone (even though this explorer has a maple neck/ebony FB and is quite bright, the body is still a huge chunk of mahogany). And...

    The dude who bought this for his Explorer had his buzz ruthlessly killed when he found out upon receiving it that E2s use the '76 reissue shape pickguards instead of the regular explorer ones. So you know. Never installed, like new, etc. etc. etc. Pretty sweet pickguard, these run like $70 new...

    I bought this at a pawn shop, not because I wanted or needed it, but because... ...well look at it, I couldn't imagine a future in which I didn't impulse buy a zebra explorer bass. :lol: Unfortunately, I have quite a few guitars, and am short on space. It's terribly inconvenient to have a bass...
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I've posted about this guitar enough you all know the story. Bitching explorer, etc. etc. etc. I'm overhauling it to a ridiculous extent to get the most bitching black and gold theme to man going. So I finally dropped in the EMG 81. Been playing it a bit. Not sure it was the right choice or...

    Ugh. I don't want to have to. Here's my Gibson Explorer 120th Ann. LE model. Weighs a ton, and sounds like its weight. I have it in B a la Amon Amarth. It's in practically new condition, and I'm the first owner. Plastic still on the pickguard. The fretboard binding is baller especially with...
