Samick Artist Series Explorer with pickup upgrades and radio knobs here. (this is my black-out fleet of the top five food groups) If you cannot find the Gibson Explorer for your price/budget then these Samick Artist series are a great alternative. Samick makes around 80% of all the import guitars for all the retail brands and so their own name on the instrument they usually do a lot higher grade work than a price point for another brand. I got mine many years ago well abused but for $25 it worked out, (scratched up/stickered body, one working pickup, trem arm broke off in the block, bat pots and switch with the lever broken off. A $12 pickup swap from ebay plus a pro setup and this plays and sounds great. I had a die-hard Gibson guy play it on his amp and he demanded to know where I got the pickups, he ordered them that night (look for the creme or red zebra and see the construction details. Many sellers but one factory).
