    Oh no...it has a signature on the headstock back. Deal-breaker for me. :(

    Yeah, probably have to get this as I have the Les Paul version, and I love the Explorer shape... gotta have both. This will be the last one, I promise (ha ha).

    Ah, I see it now; maybe cover it with electrical tape? :naughty: OK, not really, but maybe you could remove it in some way?

    All Explorers I had in my hands so far were really nicely balanced.

    Despite their odd shape explorers are super comfortable to play. Sitting they balance perfect on your leg and standing the way the strap locations are it makes it point the neck up at to me a perfect angle. They arent everyones cup of tea visually but anyone who says they are difficult to play probably hasnt played one.

    I think I'll wait for the Flying-V to come out.

    I don't have one. Yet.

    Damn LP's always win my GAS.

    As of 7-28 these still aren't available; I'm going out on a limb and betting they don't make the July ship date :p (actually I'm really curious about these so I hope they become available soon).
