Is it still possible to obtain a brand new ESP explorer, with the old style 'hockey-stick headstock' ?

I doubt that even if you ordered one custom, that they would make it for you. Im sure the only way to get one now is to buy a used one.

VERY VERY VERY hard. my dad was very lucky to have a buddy with an aria v willing to sell it and that was a long time ago. i haven't seen so much as a picture of an aria v online, let alone selling one. ( gibson had the lawsuit with all the companies about the v design and explorer at the same time, right? )

used is the only way you can find them, and ebay is very hard to find one also, cause who wants to sell those?

well if u have the money go look around ur town and the surrounding towns for a local custom shop and pay them to make an exact replica of the pre lawsuit explorer. it will be the same cept the head stock logo (if there is one)

If you live in Japan and you're very quick or very lucky you can sometimes get them. I think they're still made for the Japan market in very limited quantities although they don't list them in their catalogs.
