Lets see some Explorers. I have always kind of wanted one. Back when I was younger playing in punk rock bands it would have been sacrilege to be in stage with a "metal" guitar but I've always wanted one even then. Just never had the chance or the cash to get one. A few years ago I was at the local Guitar Center I played one of the Traditional Pro models with the neck and body binding and slightly scaled down size. I didn't realize it was a limited run GC only model. It played great and fit me really well. the action was already set up nice and low and I seriously considered buying it but I was searching for a Les Paul and ended up leaving with a nice LP Classic but I never really bonded with it and sold it 6 months later. Still kicking myself for not getting that Explorer when I had the chance. I've been on the lookout for one ever since. They don't seem to keep many Explorers in stock anywhere for me to try the standard versions but next time I find one that fits me I think I will go for it.
