Hot and Heavy

Freddy_The_Freak, 18.03.2018
as a metallica fan i ofcourse had to get an explorer shaped guitar, so when i saw this i was destined to get it. took me a while before i could get it yet when i saw they had lowered the price on this i just had to buy it.

PROS: Great guitar, medium weight, has a very cool killswitch on the tone knob, paintjob is excellently done, has a thick fretboard, stays in tuning.

CONS: the sides of the fret bars havent been done correctly, everytime i slide my hand across the side of the fretboard my hand feels like it gets sandblasted so you will need some rough hands in order to play it without pain, the sound is very muddy/basslike so take that into consideration when buying it.

Side Notes: it did take getting used to playing this but that was probably because i had been playing a V model before buying this guitar.

Verdict: i give this guitar a 4 out of 5, it would have been a 5 out of 5 but because the fretboard isnt done correctly i give it a 4 out of 5. all in all it's a great guitar and i would definitely recommend this awesome guitar.

Ive had this guitar now for 5 years as I wanted a cheap explorer to mod abit and really didnt have the funds to pay for the real deal.

My only complains initially were the stock pick ups which I replaced the bridge pup with a SD JB soon after receiving this.

I was very suprissed by the quality of the finish with only 1 flaw on one of the frets but this wasn't anything that bothered me to much.

The Tuners are a great feature and hold tune well, the bridge was nice and stable.

Slightly neck heavy but this can be sorted out by moving the strap location to the back of the body.

The finish wears quickly but I like this, shows the guitar is used.

Overall this was a great value by.
