    They haven't started yet, but ESP announced on their FB page that they'll start showing off prototypes for new models this week.

    I swear to god if they release one more all black 8 string, I'm going to lose my shit. Some of us 8 stringers like colors other than black.

    They need to re-release the EII Eclipse 7 and slap a better set of passive p/u's in it.

    Amongst other things, but that's all I can come up with before I hit the sack lol.

    This is basically Ted Aguilar's custom Eclipse but in black instead (his production version has two pickups instead of one).

    Amen to that. I’ve all but sworn off production guitars at this point, because so little is happening for 8 strings.

    ESP, how about some E-II neckthrough M2’s in colors other than black. A real m-2 with hipshot hardware (no reverse pointy headstock no m2).

    E-II H series at all. An H with a hipshot bridge higher than the LTD range.

    Watch them get all the features right but on the wrong guitar, or in a terrible finish. So tired of black/matte black.

    I really dig that finish and glad they went with black hardware.
    The new RZK models got a full release, so I guess they don't count for 2018.

    I'll say what I say every single year since like 2005: give us a goddamn Formula already.

    Things I'd like to see:
    - something other than matte finish, because who really likes those worn spots on their finish?
    - evertune e-ii horizon 6 string --> instabuy
    - baritone e-ii horizon 6 string
    - fanned fret (not gonna happen soon I guess but there was a prototype LTD I think?)
    - s/s/s e-ii st with maybe some more finish options

    About time they get rid of that 12th inlay. That'd be the best improvement

    I am hoping they will release an E-II M1 bolt on model with a hipshot bridge in white. I will buy that right away.
