                Comments about Epiphone 1984 Explorer EX Electric Guitar:

                I bought a "restock" white explorer. I saved almost 100 and it was definitely worth it. It does have a factory "2nd" stamped into the back of the headstock if that matters. No ink, just pressed into it. I bought it knowing it wouldn't be perfect, but I don't care much for having a perfect finish anyway(I actually play my guitars onstage, so they'll always have dents and dings). There were a few paint marks (black from the headstock paint bled onto the side of the headstock), some glue on the frets (came off), and a couple of paint nicks on the body (nothing you can see really).

                The main problem was with the nut and frets. I took it to a custom shop in town that builds guitar for "rock stars" (RS Guitarworks) and they told me the nut/fret problems weren't due to it being a 2nd, just the nature of buying a lower/mid range guitar. So I think I still wound up with a good deal as I would have had to get it fixed either way. After a nut job and a fret leveling, the guitar is awesome. Exactly what you'd expect from an explorer. It's nose-diving a little, but I haven't played it enough to decide whether or not I need to move the strap location.

                  I got this in black and my god it screams to be played hard. My favorite things is the flare in the back allows your to rest your elbow on it while playing. It is exremely easy to play. the EMGs sound stunning. it can get a really beefy tone and also a vintage tone. mine came with a perfect action. looks absolutely beutiful. only complaint is the finish along the fretboard could have been done better. but its an amazing guitar

                  You cannot go wrong with this guitar. It comes loaded with EMG 81's. You can also use it for old school rock and some blues style music. This guitar has a quick neck action and feel. My wife bought me the white model. I also have the Epiphone Wayne Static V. Epiphone is just as good as Gibson and Esp. Don't be afraid.

                  It also comes with Epiphone Strap Locks.

                    Comments about Epiphone 1984 Explorer EX Electric Guitar:

                    Even with the problem i had this guitar still shreds and is a great value, but it hasn't replaced my Jackson Randy Rhoads as my main guitar!! Although, it is my permanent backup and sounds awesome.
                    This guitar is built for metal. I've been playing some Amon Amarth tunes on this guitar and it's right on to their sound. This guitar is amazing for the price and quality. If your looking for a classic shape metal guitar this is the one to buy! The neck is sleek and built for speed and the EMG's are an excellent combination. And the Explorer shape is undeniably metal as it gets!
                    Although its a great guitar quality could be better. I had to fix the toggle switch which wouldn't work except on bridge pickup which was a task for my local guitar shop. Now the problem is fixed but should have been caught by quality control. Other than that the frets could be a little smoother.
                    For the price you can't beat it once you get it setup right for you!!!!

                    It's amazing. i love it, i would never sell it in my life. i got a white one from sam ash but its the same guitar.
                    Awesome, set neck, emgs, and grover tuners. comes standard with everything you need. gave it an 8 because i would prefer neckthrough, and an emg 60 instead of an 85.
                    No problems with it at all. plays great and sounds great.
                    Goes above and beyond any gibson ive ever played.. matches quality of ESP/LTD guitars for the same price
