Well originaly I wanted the explorer but my guitar center only gets shipments of them every now and then. They do have the flying v though and as far as I know the main difference is the body shape... would the flying v be just as good?
Well it seems like you want the explorer I think you should be patient and wait. Even if the v is similar in sound you might regret not buying the guitar you wanted.

Well it turns out the guitar center will order one for me so I will probably just do that. I'm still going to go and mess with flying v though because I want to compare... who knows, I might actually like the v better.
