This bass has a really sturdy, quality build. It seems to leave the factory setup for lower tunings which is convenient. I bought it with intentions to swap out the pickups and whatnot so I didn't even bother to plug it in yet, being that my amp isn't at my house. The only problem I have come across is finding a case for it.
I bought this bass about two months ago and I'm pleased with it. Eye catching looks. I'm not gonna get techie on you, everyone should know the sound they're looking for. I play mine thru a 8x10 cabinet powered by a 700 watt head and love my sound. The weight is of little or no concern. I have a T-bird as well so I'm used to it. I get around on the neck with no problem, there's no dust on my upper frets! If you position your guitar strap properly, there is NO neck dive. I can't wait to get a flying V next!!!!!!!! Hey Epiphone, you finally listened to bassists and reissued these beauties and what did we do in response??? We bought them.
I got this bass a few weeks ago and all I can say is WOW! I owned the Hamer version in high school and I sold it, and I have regretted it every day. I saw Epiphone had released the explorer and the second I knew I ordered one. There is absolutely nothing i have to complain about. The white finish is absolutely gorgeous. It came in almost perfect dropped C tuning which I thought was funny and made things easier for me. I got the planet waves strap lock straps (that way i didnt have to remove and replace hardware i.e strap buttons). All in all I am super impressed
This is my second bass, my first being a Epiphone Accu-Bass that I got last Christmas. The bass in Natural Korina is absolutely stunning to see in person. The gold hardware and black headstock are nice touches. The pickups sound good, but they aren't great for slap and pop unless the pickup selector is set for the bridge. The range of tones is good, as it can be smooth or growling depending on your use of the pickup selector and tone knob. There is a neck dive, but you get used to it quickly and if you have a nice suede strap it shouldn't be an issue. Above all, it sounds good, looks better, and is a great bass overall.
ive always been a fan of explorers and ive always wanted to own one. but problem is....IM A BASSIST!. thanks epiphone i really gotta get my hands on one of these
I recently bought this guitar and all I can say is wow! I got in alpine white and it is just beautiful and the gold hardware, oh my goodness. The pickups one would think would be bad but they sound pretty good with korina body they sound really good.
this bass plays great and you can really thrash on it. the pickups are a little too high up so if you play bass with a pick like me than watch out. this guitar is great to pick though. i recommended this guitar if you want a great look and sound. the neck dives a little if you dont have a good strap that fits you right.great guitar
I've always liked the Explorer body style, and was thrilled to find a bass with the same body. It's got good tone, great frets, and a really smooth finish. Started off with a P-bass copy, and moved up to this with no regrets. It is a bit neck-heavy, but this is easy to fix by moving the front strap retainer. A solid pick!
I have a bunch of basses, and while this thing doesn't come close to my MM Sterling HH, it gives my Mexican P Bass Special a run for it's money. Only complaints so far is that the strap buttons are in the wrong places and it's neck heavy. Otherwise, the fit, finish and quality are better than expected
hey, i got this thing about the same time i got my epiphone thunderbird and ive gotta say there the same thing just diffrent looking, if i would of look i could see that they had the same crummy epi pick ups up there alright for rock, just a warning to every one dont get this if you are going or have a epi thundebrid. just get one
I bought this bass as my drop D axe. I have to admit that it is a really nice guitar. The set-up was spot on when I received it and it sounds great through my GK stack. Fret board is good, finish is fantastic (I got the Alpine white). My only complaint is it's balance, it is neck heavy so strap locks are required.
