    Awesome! I have a 2002 black explorer with a mirror guard/truss cover that I love. It doesnt get much love/play tho. Mostly cuz of the ginormous case. Have to thin my herd and trying to talk myself into parting with it, but since it is a dream guitar, Im really fighting the urge. Rock that beast!!

    btw, I have a Custom 8 and a 59 4b in mine. Had a bit of flubbiness in the neck tone, the A4 mag helped cure that.
    Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

    Ended up swapping the Duncan's with Dimarzio 36th anniversary pups. Much better.
