Great guitar!

What is your opinion of this product?
Maybe my favorite guitar out of 9 or 10 I own, most costing far more. Sounds and plays great, feels better than expected. The pickups are good but I will change them. The frets are good/level, but could use dressing the fret ends. Finish is great "ebony". Very resonant and clean sounding, great shredder, just fun to play. At close out price this is the guitar.

Now this is a rocking machine!! Arrived on time and was perfectly set up right out of the box! I got the cherry one and it arrived without a single blemish or fault. Plalys like butter and sounds killer from full out melt your face to nice clean jazzy or blues licks. Well worth the money!

Great right out of the box!
What is your opinion of this product?
Playable and usable out of the box! Nice setup and one of the best necks I've used. Pickups are hotter than I normally use(PAF style) but are very usable for what I play which is blues and rock. The finish is flawless and looks incredible in the cherry finish. I'll have my tech give it a setup with my fav strings because I always do but I suspect he won't have to change much. I've always been a fan of Explorers, especially the Korina models, but this is a fine substitute for a Korina! Also, great price from AMS!

Gibson quality control is terrible
What is your opinion of this product?
Ordered and returned 2 different explorers. The 1st showed up with scratches and chips in the finish and the replacement showed up with a fretboard that wasn't sanded smooth and fret ends that gouged the hand. The stories of Gibson's quality control going down hill seem to be true.

Much better than expected
What is your opinion of this product?
Knowing full well of Gibson's QA/QC problems, I decided to take a chance on one of these. I'm glad I did. I'm not sure who did the set-up on this one, but it was spot on. The guitar is a froikin' monster. Other than strings, I've no plans of modifying it at all. None of the usual Gibson issues are on this one. I got a good one! The only "drawback" is that I'll have to set it up with heavier strings, but I have to do that with any guitar I get. I intend this to be for studio work so the gigbag is fine for me. I've been a customer of AMS for years now, and will continue to be.
