A floating tremolo with no locking nut is a big problem. Locking tuners will not help this. If you have a tremolo and the string can move anywhere around the nut its going to go out of tune. You would think for a shred guitar they would give it a shred neck. This guy comes with the 50 baseball bat neck which does not lend itself to fast playing unless you have huge hands. Gibson did get one thing right when they added the battery compartment on the control cavity plate. You can change the battery for the EMG's without having to open up the whole plate. Some other EMG equipped Gibsons do not have this. The ebony fretboard is nice but ebony with black inlays is very hard to see. You might as well not put any inlays on it.
If this guitar didnt sound so good it would have hardly anything going for it. The huge mahogany Explorer body and neck provide a great base for tone. The EMG 85s front and rear provide crushing tone everywhere. Everyone loves the 81 in the bridge but I prefer the 85. Its tone is a lot thicker and brings more low end and gives you a fatter tone overall. This 85 combination gives you a Gibson-y active tone. In the neck position you get fat and smooth leads and it cleans up pretty decently. The bridge is a sledge hammer. You get crushing tone with the 85 in the bridge. The only big name guys I can think of who use dual 85s are Jon Donais of Shadows Fall and the guys from In Flames and with those bands you can hear the thick tone.
If this guitar was just a hardtail I would love every part of it. The afterthought tremolo really ruins it for me. If it had a locking nut it would be better. Gibson should make another guitar like this with the dual 85 EMG's. If you are looking for a shreddy Explorer and dont mind the lack of a locking nut this guitar is really good.

The Shred-X Explorer is Gibson USA’s Guitar of the Month for June 2008. The Gibson Explorer has long been a coveted workhorse guitar among the ranks of the world’s finest hard rock and heavy metal players. Now, this Explorer guitar takes it up a notch, with a one-piece mahogany body outfitted with black chrome hardware, and an Ebony finish.
A pair of EMG 85 pickups deliver the output needed for hard rock and metal, and a Kahler 2215K tremolo system ensures there will be no intonation or tuning issues when dive bombing chords and notes. The neck is also one-piece mahogany with Gibson’s traditional ’50s rounded profile, and ebony fingerboard with black acrylic dot fretboard inlays unique only to the Shred-X guitar, and locking Grover tuners.
The toggle switch has been relocated to the position it occupies on the Explorers from the 1980s, allowing easier access to quick, pickup selection. The Shred-X Explorer comes with a custom Gibson Guitar of the Month case. Production is limited to just 1,000 guitars.
