Explorer, but go to the shop and try how it feels and how it sounds man.
Because oonce i was about to buy an Epiphone Les Paul Standard without trying it and when i went to the shop i tried it out and it didn't feel right.

Of course it depends on what sort of music you play, what amp you have, and so on. That aside though...

The Vintage Mahogany is awful, as are all of the cheap Gibson LPs. There's a reason why they're half the price of the normal LPs...

So, I'd say, go with the Explorer, if you're hell-bent on buying one of those two.

My advice though would either buy one of the better SGs instead, or save up more money and get a Gibson LP Standard or Classic.

SG ftw.
I bought a '61 reissue about 2 years ago, never regretted it.
There's something living in these lines.

Yea go for the Les Paul.. I think the Xplorer is more suitable for playing metal etc.
My gear:

-Epiphone Standard Blueburst Limited Edition
-Vintage SG Cherryred
-Zoom 505II Guitar Pedal
-Crate GX10w

I own an Explorer Pro with a Flamed Maple top (check my profile for a pic), and it's far from a 'strictly metal' guitar.
I got it mainly because of my love for Lynyrd Skynyrd, and it can handle that beautifully.
Great crunchy tone.
I also got it for my love of metal.
Which, it does to a T.

It's the most perfect guitar (in my mind).
Great neck, great weight, great tone.
It's a beaut.

Yeah, I bet thats exactly what Gibson were thinking when they introduced it in 1958...

Radical designer - "Hey guys, ive invented this great new shape, its perfect for metal!"
CEO of Gibson - "Metal? Youre going to make it out of metal???"
Radical designer - "No! Metal!"
CEO of Gibson - "..."
Radical designer - "Heavy metal? Teh br00talz?"
CEO of Gibson - "I have no idea what youre talking about."
Radical designer - "STFU n00b!!!!"
Actually called Mark!

^ you win sir. But I'm pretty tired of coming on UG and seeing these threads. ZOMG WHICH GUITAR SHULD I GET LOLZ??. Especially in this case, its all opinionated. You might get more posts saying one over the other, but that shouldn't be the reason you decide one one, because its all opinionated. I could just say get the Explorer to **** with you .

But seriously, I do have an old Gibson Explorer.

I have that explorer in the vintage sunburst finish, it's pretty amazing. The neck is small and thin, it just plays really well. I'm plannign on changing the pickups out though, they sound a little dirty to me.
#19
I think you should get the Flying V, because all the other Gibson's don't exist. LOL

At least in my world.
