    This baby here rawks! I'm a happy owner of the Explorer counterpart, as well as a Gibson and ESP Explorers. Despite the Goth Exp and V have slightly lower frets than the ESP, they don't hinder my playing much at all.The two more expensive models that I have are both loaded with EMG pickups, but with the Goth, I decided against it! The stock pickups work wonders in these, though I tried the EMGs on the Explorer. Surprisingly, I didn't do the guitar a favour! I definitely suggest sticking with the stock pickups.The only complaint is the position of the neckside strap button, as it causes the neck to dive. I don't really like making new holes to my guitars, but I guess it's an inevitable evil if you want the neck not to dive. But if you don't have a problem with drilling new holes, move the button. I feel this point doesn't fault the guitar. If you like the V-shape and one is within your reach, don't hesitate!

    I bought one of these nice Flying V's less than a year ago. The cicuitry is perfect, and it is extremely comfortable. The only thing I am unhappy about is that I have less than a year with it, and it has a major crack in the neck. I KNOW I haven't damaged it because I keep it under lock and key, and I would never hurt my guitar. I have slighty taped the body against a wall or something, but never enough to put a fracture in the neck!

    Mate this guitar rocks, got it yesterday and what a great buy. I originally had a korina flying v but I got this one as it broke. Brilliant value for money and it's so easy to play, sherdding is no problem and as for standing and sitting with it it's easy. It is a light guitar but the headstock hasn't weighed it down with my strap, and as for sitting down, it's just semthing you get used to after time. I dropped it in to C and B and it rocked, it can handle heavy dropped strings so well. Great buy

    this is a nice guitar , its really light but the only problem was the neck falling down because of the position of the strap button and the way its tilted ,all you have to do is buy a nice strap and reposition the strap button to the back of the guitar or get it done somewhere, thats what i did and it worked perfectly. i have seymour duncan invaders in mine and it sounds amazing. it has a wider neck witch good.id recomend this guitar to anyone

    Pretty Good.

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    This is a really nice guitar for live shows, if you can afford a strap, or if you want to loose some speed because your hand needs to push the neck back up from time to time (you can also put the lower part on your right leg). Unfortunately, for long study sessions the body gets quite uncomfortable, specially if you're used to playing with a guitar on your right leg. I think that 24 frets are a must, but I can deal with 22. I tune it 1 step down with .10s and never looses its tuning. The action, when playing on a sitdown position is really low. Not the best for its price, but it sure kicks some butt both in looks and sound.

    What A Nice Guitar

    By kyle-P5SKY

    from Hartford CT

    I've been playing for about 2 years and I would consider myself quite good at guitar, so I kinda know what I'm talking about. This guitar is very good throw on Walk and plug it into your Marshall Zakk Wylde mini stack and its feels like its a $1000 dean dimebag guitar. I very well built solid guitar. My only problem is that you have to buy a $50 levy's strap so it wont fall down when your standing up because the body is so light that the head stock pulls it down but no big deal. I think the funniest thing about this guitar is that you get all these people going " This sucks it falls down when I'm playing sitting down YOU PUT IT IN BETWEEN YOUR LEGS. Ha but w/e any way very nice tone and great value not a Gibson but d*** near close!

    metal

    By Josh-pk6SQ

    from Opelika, AL

    So I just recently received this guitar for my birthday and I must say this is easily the best guitar I have ever played. I play a lot of metal and rock so I was very pleased with the pickups and the look of it can kill.

    DUUUUUUUDE

    By JibbaJabba4000

    from Plano, TX

    As I said earlier, DUUUUUUDE!!!!! This guitar is BEAST(really good)!!! The satin neck is so smooth and is a shredder's DREAM! It's really light and easy to play and the lack of inlays looks awesome; I was suprised how easy it was to play without them(use the side dots). If you got one of these and put some EMG's in it...Good G-d...the devastation would be massive...no survivers... Anyways, this guitar is really good, and at a price like this, there's no reason not to buy it. Excellent.

    Very Pleased

    By kingzepplin

    from Brewster, MA

    I just got this guitar in last weak, and I am very happy with what I got. The sound is very nice and clean, and the strings it comes with are not that bad (for my purposes). It is a lot lighter than i thought it would be, and although it may look huge when you take it out of the box (I'm used to stratocasters) it really is easy to hold and play. It comes with grips on the bottom so you can play easily sitting down, and I've had no problems standing up while playing. For the price, this baby is amazing quality, and looks even better.
