Among the more 'bizarre' ESP guitars you'll ever see

FINGERBOARD: Ebony, 24frets
INLAY: MOP Dot
SCALE: 648mm (Long)
NUT: Lock Nut (42mm/R2)
JOINT: Neck-thru-body
TUNER: GOTOH SG360-07
BRIDGE: Floyd Rose

Hahahaha. That's deffo in the "so hilariously awful that I love it" category of guitars. Leave it ESP to make a wacky manga-based guitar, too. A sign of more insanity to come, I hope.

Walter Winchel was wrong. People are terrible.

I've actually played a majority of them. And the guitars posted above have been reposted to a point where I've become bored with them too.

This one...



Despite the look, the Sakito sig was among my favorite guitars to play.

I would buy a Jeune Fille in a nanosecond if I had the money. It practically epitomizes over-the-top hilariugliness (it's Mana's after all ), and I absolutely love it. Shame it's so damned expensive, though. Even the Edwards model is a bit more than I'm currently willing to pay for a guitar that I want in large part just because it's hilarious .

Damn I'm pretty jealous haha. I can only assume most of these guitars, despite being weird looking, are top tier in play-ability and quality as they are ESP guitars :P

Looks like it's all crazy J-rock axes. Those mofos get real intricate with their image.

Not my thing, but if i was as glam/cosplay influenced as those dudes, yeah, I'd be all over that .... lol.

That Sakito sig is fantastic minus the headstock. I could even manage if it was a traditional nylon/classical style headstock but the way they throw the ESP part on there is awful and offsets it

Is it bad that the instant I opened this thread, I thought "That's the guitar based on Toraneko Folklore?"
Yeah...

The OP is actually pretty sweet. How ergonomical it is to play is a different story
