Exploring expectations

Considering the price-to-goodness ratio, if you are intending to spend good money on a Gibson next year, I believe this Explorer T (USD1,299) is a safe investment. If you have ever played an Explorer before, you'd be impressed with that incredible sustain & a bottom end focus. 2016's version feature the gain-friendly 496R/500T pickup combo so it's something to behold tone-wise. However, the quirky Explorer design means you have to deal with that extra tail end flap which some find undesirable.
