Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Explorer Pro Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar for it's design and styling. When I first received this guitar, the wood grain had some serious flaws in it. Musician's Friend was kind enough to let me exchange for another. The second came and there was a crack in the finish. I exchanged again. The third one has a rough spot in the finish on the top near the back. I'm going to just live with it as I've come to realize you can't expect a great deal from a guitar in this price range. It is terribly nice to look at, however, and plays okay. Knowing what I know now, I would buy again because I really like looking at it. I'd recommend to a friend only with these caveats.

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Explorer Pro Electric Guitar:

I have wanted this guitar for 30 years, and the day it arrived was prolly one of the best of my life.

Others have spoken about the build quality - there is nothing wrong with mine, though I'm not a huge fan of binding. The neck is beefier than I like - considerably more than my Les Paul Studio. The tone is *not quite* as versatile as my LPS.

The finish is a subtle "grey grain" on black, which is very 60s-ish. I actually prefer this finish to the Gibson options.

It looks amazing on me - one of my friends described it as "very long", and it turns out that the upper butt extends farther than my right elbow, ha ha!

This is guitar #10. I might get rid of the other nine.

Change pickups, this is a beast

Pros

  • Fun To Play
  • Good Feel

Cons

  • Poor Pick Up

Best Uses

    Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Explorer Pro Electric Guitar:

    This guitar looks great in person. I love the feel of this neck, although the shape of the body requires that I wear a sweatband on my right wrist during long practices and gigs for comfort.

    This guitar has a rosewood fingerboard...the USA model does not, it has something like grandillo wood...the white body binding looked well done.

    My explorer had action that was too high, and I did not like the sound of the pickups. I had my guitar tech install a pair of Seymour Duncan hot rodded humbuckers, and switch out the pentiomiters, selector switch, input jack, and jack plate. Action was also lowered.

    After making these modifications, I now have an explorer of professional quality, still costing a few hundred less than the Gibson version.

    After the pickup switch, electronic upgrades, and professional setup this guitar sounds as nice as my Gibson guitars, but I'm not as worried about bringing it to a sketchy bar for a long night of rocking out.

    In conclusion, if you like the explorer body style, this is an instrument with a great core (nice wood, neck, frets, nut work), but is lacking in the electronics department. Out of the box this guitar may not be fit for a gigging professional, but if you put a little more into it you will have a truly awesome guitar that really turns some heads on stage.

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Explorer Pro Electric Guitar:

      Very neck heavy guitar. Pick-ups are muddy and the volume/tone controls have almost no effect. If you want to back either off a little you have to back it off a lot to notice any change. Build quality for this price range is so-so at best.

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Explorer Pro Electric Guitar:

        The first one I received had a crack where the neck meets the body. The paint under the clearcoat looked bad, very poor quality. It was a far cry from the picture M.F. shows. It played nice, had a nice neck. Sent it back for another one. Couldn't believe it, 2nd guitar had the same problem. Very disappointed in M.F. for not looking these things over before they ship them out. Had to send the 2nd one back also. Not going to order a third.

          Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Explorer Pro Electric Guitar:

          This is a very cool color once you see it up close. I have a little trouble getting use to the shape as I'm use to resting my forearm on my Strat and have trouble feeling comfortable on this guitar so far, but this will be an acquired feel after awhile I'm sure. Overall for the price it was excellant, and if Epiphone sticks to no more than a thousand production run as they stated it will be a guitar others will want to have many years from now.
