  1. Greetings, So I purchased this modified 1983 Explorer a few years ago with the sellers claims it was a Custom Shop and also Korina. I liked the guitar and it played REALLY well so I bought it. But being modified with EMG's and diamond plate, I was skeptical about the Custom Shop Korina part. It does have the CS logo on back of headstock, but you know ebay.... I was curious the other day and opened up the top removing the full diamond plate pickgaurd and discovered a previous tremelo routing. (I assumed this since the headstock has locking nut screw holes). But to my surprise, the
  2. Hello. This is my first post. I recently installed new tuners on my explorer and hater them, so I put the old grovers on. The only problem is that I had to drill holes, and so I plugged up the holes with toothpicks. They are barely visible because I put touch up furniture paste on them. But they are re still noticeable to me. This is my favorite guitar and I can’t forgive myself. Any recommendations on what to do? Is it possible to get the back of the headstock refinished?
  3. Hi there, i just bought my first ever Gibson guitar and this is what i'm greeted by, is this normal or should i return it? I don't really care if there's dings or anything but i just want to know that it's structurally sound and that the headstock isn't gonna snap off.
  4. Hi everyone, i'm about to exchange my Les Paul Studio 1999 (way too heavy for me) with a 2009 Explorer. The owner of the Explo sent me pictures of the guitar and i noticed this defect on the back side of the keyboard. He told me that you can't feel it by touching, that is not a bump (he informed me about all the others bumps and scratches) and that he never noticed it before taking flash photos for me. It looks like something that involves finish more than a bump (he said that you cant notice it by touching it). Is it wise to exchange my Les Paul for that guitar (if it sounds nice)?
  5. I’ve got an old Gibson Explorer that was heavily refinished at one point in it’s life. I bought it used from a local guitar shop 15 years ago, and the dude told me it was a 1981. Anyway I’m pretty sure the pickups have been switched out to these cream colored humbuckers. Recently the neck pickup has gotten SUPER dark and just doesn’t have that nice tone it used to. I had my guitar tech buddy tear it all apart and check it out. He can’t figure it what’s wrong with the pup but did replace all the pots as they were old and failing and one had a brass stem, and the other 2 aluminum- clearly not
  6. Hello everyone, I'm new here, just a quick question. I recently bought my first Epiphone, as you can read from the title, it's a Lee Malia Explorer. It has a dummy coil on the backside of the neck P-90. The idea is it should cancel some (or all) of the hum from the neck pickup. However, when I opened the plastic cover of that dummy coil, I saw a wire wrapped around it. It has a naked end to it (no plastic insulation around the end of that wire), like it's intended to be soldered somewhere, but it isn't. So the question is - is that wire supposed to be soldered somewhere or not? Beca
