    This with the V body and reverse pointy inline would get my money asap.

    What's with the single pickups thing? I like my neck pickups!

    There's plenty of dual pickup guitars out there already. Magnets of the neck pickup will affect the strings even if it's not in use. Hopefully half the pickups and half the pots will show in prices also.

    Well it'd be pretty dumb to put out a series of black metal oriented guitars and not include the arrow or v shape

    I predict an eclipse, viper and maybe a horizon. If they do a V or an EX I would be surprised. That would be too close to something I would want and ESP is completely against that.

    I hope this means a re-release of the NV series, easily my favorite V shape.

    That we would be cool. I just picked up a white NV and liked it so much ordered a custom shop NV. It would be my luck they bring back the NV and it be a single hum after I just ordered one.

    I've looked all around US websites and could only find one on Reverb that was owned by a guy from Suffocation. The price seems a little high but I'm not really sure the going rate for NVs.

    If it's an LTD and black I'll be picking it up no question, single hum or dual. If they make a 7 or 8 I'll scream because the Jens Kidman 8 string V and Explorer are two of my dream guitars.

    Does anyone know why the NV series became discontinued in the first place?

    Abalone everywhere jokes were funnier and less worrying.

    Now that's I've said this, I'm expecting an ESP employee to see it, report, and we all have our 2018 line of matte black ESPs with abalone binding.

    Make it gloss black single pickup chrome hardware abalone binding with flags, it would actually still look pretty bad ass

    I like them, but it becomes glossier with time and if there's color it can be fine, but on black it will likely look pretty bad.

    I like one pickup guitars, but magnets affecting the strings is likely such a minute effect I doubt anyone can actually tell the difference.

    Yeah, haven't tested personally but Phil X said he tested this and there was a difference. He's just the last person I've heard this from. Don't remember if it was about sustain or more. If you don't use a neck pup, might as well not waste money on one.
