    I think that's pretty cool actually!

    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.

    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. :lol:

    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 :lol:), 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 :lol:.

    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

    I feel too old to be giggling so much at "Black with Silver Frake Fire"

    These remind me of prince guitars

    I really like the black one though. I'd play that in a heartbeat

    AWESOME !!

    Hmmmm, looks like there is enough room on that headstock for 1 more tuner !!

    7 string version would be sinister :evil:

    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 shit 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 :noway:

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

    Definitely not my thing, but they kind of went to the other extreme, opposite of B.C. Rich.

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