ESP Explorer
Does anyone know if the ESP Explorers had a set neck or a bolt on neck?

thanks for the response Frank but i unfortunatly realized i was unclear. i was actually referring to the ESP Explorer model dubbed after the infamous Gibson Explorer body style. I know there production was limited and the concept eventually wound up as a big lawsuit between Gibson and ESP because it was Gibsons design first. I think ESP referred to them as EXP-250 or EXP-350 or somthing. James Hetfeild of Metallica uses ESP's version if i am not mistaken. So the summary of all this babble is was the Gibson style Explorers produced by ESP set or Bolt-on? thanks

Frank you are truely killing me. you are telling me the answer to the wrong guitar. Those are ESP styled Explorers that are currently in production...in fact i own both of the EX series. what i am asking and thought was clear in the picture and description i made earlier, is the Gibson style Explorer produced by ESP. the current ones have sharp corners on them and i know about them. i want to know about the old ESP Explorers. they look like Gibson Explorers (rounded corners) they do not make em anymore so don't give me a link to ESP's site and if you do not know the answer then do not respond thanks
