    [​IMG] I’ve wanted one for so long, but it had to be natural with gold hardware.
    These go for a premium these days.
    One finally came up in my area and I jumped on it. I go get it in a few days.

    It’s amazing, mint condition, 2011 model.
    Ended up being $995 USD.
    Not much else to say, it’s rad.

    Good stuff! If I could find one with a fat neck for small money, I’d join you!

    You are going to love it. I have not owned an explorer in years but the first Gibson I ever owned
    was an Explorer. Enjoy!

    Now you need a "V".

    I like that guitar! I especially like the attention to detail on the gold pickup polepieces. Visually its thinks like, that to me at least, that make a difference.
