Being a massive Metallica fan I always wanted an explorer, ideally a 1984 explorer but when I saw the '58 in this gorgeous matte black colour I had to have it. For the price it's fantastic, it's got a very solid tone with quite a lot of low end, perfect for those chuggy riffs.
an awesome guitar, beautiful, great dark heavy tone. I changed it's pickups to a pickup called Punchbucker from brazilian pickup brand called Sergio Rosar, which has a great quality on low tunings. This guitar with those pickups is a metal beast.
