Overall: zZounds has proven time and again why they are my number one choice for musical supplies. I hadn't even heard of Lee Malia before I got this guitar but he certainly helped create a bada$$ axe; this thing rips! In terms of the actual sound it produces: the P-94 in the neck is great for melodic cleans and 84T-LM in the bridge sounds amazing both distorted or clean. I honestly can't put this guitar down! The finish is absolutely incredible, it has such a wonderful look to it. Year after year Epiphone has shown that it consistently produces quality guitars and this Explorer is a testament to that.

Overall: I received this guitar from zZounds last week and absolutely love it. Tonally, the guitar is extremely versatile (something you wouldn't automatically think of with an explorer). It is also quite comfortable and visually stunning as well. The only thing I can find wrong with it is that the tuners are quite large for the headstock. Also, the strings it came with were in very poor shape and it required an immediate setup. However those are minor flaws and it's well worth the price.

Overall: One of a few guitars, out of the box, perfectly set up (E standard). Well worth the extra $200 to upgrade from the standard epi explorer, since its hard to tell its an artist custom besides the fretboard. Plays fast and beautiful as hell. The pickup selection is worth all this money by itself, hot bridge with coil tap, single coil on the neck with a hidden bucker pickup?! Hell yeah.
