So you mean like this?

the music zoo dot com

That just takes me to a google search page. Do I have to capitalize it?

You can get a 2018 EXPLORER 'ELITE' right now from THE MUSIC ZOO dot com, its what I did. Best part of that dealio is the 48 month 0% interest financing, all with zero $$$ up front. 1ST you have to get their credit-card, if you Qualify for the Credit-Card, make the purchaase and the guitar is in your hands in three days. First payment is due 4-6 weeks later. It comes out to about $37/month...and that is a lot of Guitar Tone for less than $40/month.

The MusicZoo is not as big as SWEEWATER but they have the same dealio's, and my experience with them so far has been nothing less than EXCELLENT. and FYI, the credit card company behind them is the same as SWEETWATER, Synchrony Bank.



Going with sweetwater since they're the safest online that can offer a lower price and they have their 55 point inspection.

Don’t trust Sweetwater’s inspections. I bought an RD Artist and it arrived in scratch and dent condition. There is a post on here with pictures of what they sent me.

Well they still would price drop it; my brother shopped a gibson les paul classic and got it around $400 off.

I am just stating that their inspection is fairly worthless in my opinion. It is a marketing ploy and nothing else from my experience. If they will give you the price and you are comfortable with them, do it. I would not buy from them based on my personal experience with my RD and a pair of Egnater amps earlier this year.

it looks great, in fact, one of the coolest looking explorers i've seen posted in here. but you did it the hard way. there are lots of places online where you can order any shape/color combination you'd ever want, and it's reasonably priced. even still, you got great results


thanks, I did it myself,after the one i ordered had the holes in the wrong places and only because it was faster took a day. then overnight for more paint one more night.... still want to add clear at some point

....... The elite resonates a lot more and sounded better.......


Late coming to the party here, but I'm a firm believer of that myself. A huge consideration for me.

Been long enough, let's see it! No hit and runs allowed.......
