  7. MaxOfMetal replied to the thread ESP vs. Caparison? Let me hear some input!.

    Yeah, I'd definitely go with something newer. They do seem to of gotten better, for what it's worth.

  8. MaxOfMetal replied to the thread ESP vs. Caparison? Let me hear some input!.

    Not really. I say that as a big fan of both Ibanez and Jackson/Charvel. Some MIJ RGs come in two or three colors at the most, but...

  9. MaxOfMetal replied to the thread ESP vs. Caparison? Let me hear some input!.

    Most ESP production models are offered in black, and I'm sure that's what most dealers order since it's just about the best selling...

    Commaches are awesome and criminally underrated. Folks see those goofy looking pickups and take a pass on them. I don't think I would...

  14. MaxOfMetal replied to the thread ESP vs. Caparison? Let me hear some input!.

    That's what the Angelus models were, trying appeal to the non-metal crowd. Thing was, no one wanted to pay PRS Artist Tier prices for...
