    Wow, it didn't even click with my brain when I saw the email that that was a Horizon III. Too bad I'm out of the buying market for a while. Glad to see purple getting some love though.

    I'd like to see the Potbelly return with some less vintage appointments, myself.

    We need the Formula to return so badly it isn’t even funny. That shape is basically perfection.

    B-but... Potbelly :(

    The Formula reminds me of the Chris Broderick Jackson sig. Not a fan of the offset.

    Formula is way more graceful and well proportioned than the Broderick

    Also I looked at a H III and Formula side by side and they're almost identical not counting the H III's giant dong bass cutaway

    I've said it before, might as well reiterate.

    The H-III would do really well in an ERG format, IMO.

    Any chance there's an MIJ ESP version of the KS-M-7 Susi model?

    I need this in my life, with Fluence instead of the EMGs:

    I have GAS for an 8 string Horizon 3 complete with cockstock. Unfortunately I doubt well ever see one that isn't custom shop.
    The second guitarist from Revocation has one.

    Man, I love the vintage headstock, but it doesn't work here. :(

    Also, Llexi Leon has one.

    Had no idea he had one. Pretty cool, but the vintage reversed headstock is just not working. And I love that headstock for the record.

    EDIT: yup I'm just late. Looks like he's going natural neck back as well.
