My wife introduced me to a special diet called "you can't buy more guitars unless they're paid for by selling existing guitars". It's pretty sucky and I'm always hungry.
I got an Epiphone 1958 Korina Explorer (made in Jan, 1998, the first year for that model) for cheap and was going to sell little red here to fund the purchase and have some extra $ left over to throw at my credit card bill.
I've had a small ache for an Explorer for years and it turns out that I'm glad I didn't sell the Ibanez first. Ergonomically the Explorer is very weak. It's way neck heavy and even after doing all the magic at my disposal it just isn't a comfortable guitar to play. Also, I don't get a vibe of versatility from it. My Gibson V feels versatile; I put it on and feel ready to play anything. I put the explorer on and and feel "well, it looks pretty cool".
No offense to any Explorer or Destroyer fans out there. Just my little opinions.
I'm sure that little red is breathing easier.
