I´d really love for this Explorer to be legit but a few things tell me it may not be.

Seller claims it´s a 2004 model but all the googleing in the world doesn´t mention a 2004 non-pickguard model with the controls aligned the way they are on that guitar.

Any help?

There was a model called "pro" in 2007 but they had binding.

The knobs are aligned the wrong way and it should have a guard or binding. Something also doesn't sit right with me with that color...

The 2007 "pro" models had the knobs that way, but they had binding and the seller claims it´s a 2004!

You need to ask him for more pictures.


Its not an explorer pro but it might be an explorer studio. Possibly refin'd Swamp Ash model or routed mini humbucker.


If he doesnt give you more info I would stay away.

My vote is repainted Studio, if anything. I don't see it in red.
Thanks alot, by the way. Now I want a Voodoo Explorer again. Stupid google image search.

They made red ones, just not with humbuckers.





So it could be a routed one as well IMO.

I stand corrected. Yeah, he at least changed the pups. What does the price tell you?

Yeah it looks like a modded studio.

Really sweet looking explorer though.
