Happy NGD! This is a 1985 Lotus Explorer, made in Japan, maybe. As referenced in an earlier post, I got one of these back in 1983 brand new and it was my main player for years.
These are very hard to find, been looking for one for years. This one does have a different headstock than the one I owned way back when. This was the 4th guitar I ever owned, have had 28 more since then. Now if I could only find that Monaco Yellow Stratocaster I think I'd be done with the trips down memory lane. Yeah, probably not.
