ESP/LTD new models for 2010

Just found on the ESP Guitars website... (pretty sure this isn't a repost)

New finishes for EC-1000


LTD H models get rid of that stupid headstock. No cockstock, but F headstock.


New finish for MH series.


New 300 series. Dunno how this is going to compare to the 400 series - so far they look basically the same?

FX-360 Padauk Brown Satin, and Spalted Maple


H-351FR


H-351NT


This is cool looking! Viper-300M VBS (vintage brown satin)


New model: MH-327 - 27 fretter, Duncan Hot Rail and Custom 5


ST-203 Strat copy


New finish for the EC-256 (AVG - aged vintage gold). Not sure why the pic says MGO.


Also, apparently the X-tone brand is being merged with LTD.

Yeah, it looks like ESP/LTD is trying to be Schecter, with the F headstock on the Horizons.

I love the 27 fret ones, and the silverburst EC looks tasty. ESP/LTD GAS is stronger than before.

While I agree, I think the F headstock looks miles better than this:



I also agree the cockstock is way better than both
Why don't they bring that back?

ESP/LTD is Schecter. The same dude owns them both.

Giving the Horizon the Forest headstock instead of bringing back the original is dildos. If I want a Schecter I'll buy a Schecter.

Goldtop EC gets the gas rolling though.

Isn't the Xiphos 27-fret still available?

I'd imagine the 27 fret LTD to be in line with other mid/high end LTD's (probably around $650-750)? A bit cheaper than the Xiphos, anyway.

EDIT: That is, if the same general model numbering system applies

^I know about the xiphos, not really a fan of the shape, and besides, this guitar might as well be the kiko loureiro for the us, I would kill for that guitar, I just wish It was available in purple with a quilt top, as soon as these go for sale, believe me when I say I will have one

Fair enough I also prefer the superstrat shape to the xiphos... and I agree the Kiko is a pretty killer guitar

Will be interesting to see the pricing on these.

Whether or not the "same dude" owns both Schecter and ESP/LTD, fact is their lineups are looking more and more alike with each year. Wouldn't you think each company would have a bit more of their own identity?

This 2010 lineup has a lot of guitars marketed solely in black and dark cherry red finishes, much like the Hellraisers, especially with the Horizon headstock change and the Xtones getting EMGs/those finishes (Solo-6, anyone?)




vs.



and



vs.



Pretty damning, eh?

They are ridiculously similar... Although the Solo-6 looks a lot better than the X-tone, IMO.

Shoulda brought back the cockstock and done some different finishes!

Oh well, they still look pretty good. I'm mostly stoked on the 27-fretter and the 7 string.

I'm surprised they didn't put full binding on the FX and Viper models to match every other model.

Not keen on the new F headstocks, they look too much like a Schecter. They should just bring back the cockstock! I like the Silverburst EC-1000 though.

He's "the dude" that owns both Schecter and ESP. He originally planned to keep both companies completely separate, though given the last year or so, apparently he's getting a little laxed with that policy.

In 10 years they'll probably be the same brand.

Silver burst and gold top ec's I would so shell out the 900 bucks for them if had 900 . Lol that BCH H-1001 looks EXACTLY like a hellraiser minus the gothic inlays or whatever they are called. The should make an H-1001 with an ebony board and just drop the abalone and paint it solid black with white binding or their vb finish like the ec-1000 vb
