In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

I have an Epiphone Explorer and an Epiphone Les Paul...I ended up getting a Gibson Explorer, not a Les Paul so you can guess which one I prefer. But the Les Paul is more convenient to play, I'll say that much.

This is why vs threads are banned, because people can say "well Dragonforce are better because ZP's hair is curlier" or "Iron Maided are better coz Dave Murray looks like a fish"


It's Always Funny When It's True.

You should see if you can play it with your elbow on the guitar. I played one once and unfortunately for me my bony elbow felt weird sitting on the wood rather than normal.

if youre talking bout the explorer, i have a thunderbird bass so im pretty used to it. and i play my friends les paul whenever i have the chance
#6
honestly if your playing that i won't get either of those, but if i had to choose id go with the explorer simply because you can easily reach the higher frets
#7
If you're male and have a slight build, I think the Explorer tends to make you look like Christopher Robin or a hobbit.

Regardless, I have both the Epi and Gibson and the Epi is definitely very nice. I'd upgrade the PU to taste.

whoa... I answered the poll question way to early, I didn't know that it was an epi les paul "studio" vs a 1958 explorer. if the poll was more specific I'd really choose the 1958 explorer.

Anyway, an obvious choice from the 2 is the explorer. but if you have placed an LP standard or custom. I'd choose the LP.

I agree with the Christopher Robin post - part of why I don't have one (yet). But I lub me some explora.
#14
The only people who can pull off the Explorer look are The Edge and James Hetfield. Considering you're not either of them, I'd suggest a LP Standard.
