    Well I'll be damned. I never knew that. I always assumed it was black anodized aluminum because of the matte finish.

    That multi scale is the first ESP I've wanted in years!

    As cool as that SC-20 is I wish they would reissue the sunburst SC-607. I cannot find one. That being said, I’m going to have a hard time passing up the chance to buy the 20 since that was really this first signature model I ever dreamed of owning when I was younger. Hopefully this is the first of more Stef reissues, give me a sunburst Sc-607 and a SRC-7 next ESP, please.

    I wish they had just reissued the SC-600 instead of doing the slanted neck pickup. I've always liked the pickup configuration on Stephen's guitars, but I cannot stand that neck position because it messes with the pickup symmetry.

    I really want that red sparkle on the 608b, but on a 7 string TE model with a floyd rose and some black nickel fishman moderns. Ah, I can dream...

    I can only guess for KH fanboys that gotta have everything with his name on it. Or people that really want a purple sparkle MII, but don't want to pay top dollar for their own custom. Frankly, if it had a maple board instead of rosewood and no skull inlays, I would have fallen in love. But yeah, obviously knew that wasn't going to happen.

    Dammit was hoping on word if there be a ESP MIJ version of the Ken Susi Blingmachine...

    I have a few of the old ESP STEF SRC 6-String guitars that came out back in the late 90’s. What do you mean by position of the pickup symmetry?? A lot of people bag on the pickup configuration of these guitars but I don’t get why. The 3 pickup configuration in this guitar is quite unique as you can get a variety of great tones out of this guitar.

    Having a middle and neck pickup makes sense. You get a slew of tones like you would on a Strat, but with more beef because of the bridge and middle bucker. Super versatile.

    Having a middle with no neck makes no sense. Not as versatile and you don't get the awesomeness that is the neck + middle combined.

    Where did you get the ESP Japan info? Trying to see what else they will have.

    While there's still time for them to announce a 7 string equivalent of the SC20 I doubt they'll be more Stef reissues on the way as the SC20 is part of their one off artist sig thing which focuses on replicas/reissues of artist guitars such as the Vernon Reid and Page Hamilton sigs or limited edition finishes like they did for Kirk Hammett and Jeff Hanneman.

    All this stuff has been out for a while. You can find it on ESP Japan's website but I generally use something like Ikebe Gakki, Digimart, or Ishibashi
