Xiphos/Explorer. Both look great, and they're both made out of Mahogany.

Depends on you neck preferance, in the end. I'd rather get a Xiphos, but explorers are great, too.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

Yeah Xiphos are gd but I guess the explorer looks more universal and appeals to stuff outside of metal.

Though, TS, although the Xiphos is gd...avoid the one with the trem.
