    Wow, they even took the 12th fret inlay off of the USA models. I guess they finally realized how stupid it looked to have something different on 1 fret. And of course they make this decision right after I get a guitar that was supposed to have no inlays and has a 12th fret one.

    I'm usually all about the more "metal"-looking Vipers, but got DAYUM, that is nice!! :drool:

    Already got a Viper, but if I didn't I'd be tempted.

    Always wondered weather a Viper would look right with 22 frets. This one looks decent!

    Most SGs look better with 24 frets, but man the viper looks much better with 22. Looks less cramped.

    If that kamikaze is around $500 like his current ones I am definitely going to grab one just for fun. I am seeing a lot of stuff I like, might be picking up a few ESP's next year.

    sv + nv please

    although we won't get a real sv, any sv is better than no sv

    I, for one, actually really enjoy the Alexi sigs. Of course, the MIJ ESP/Edwards ones are better than their slightly changed US counterparts, but even the LTD 600 series ones are pretty nice.

    :lol: Well, it’ll really blow your mind to know how much I’m gassing for a jfrog skull-n-bones model! I generally don’t play sixxers anymore, but I’d love a Jason Becker Numbers, a Skull-n-Bones, a Frankenstrat, a 77FP, and maybe even a Warren Dimartini San Dimas. I just have a thing for those over-the-top 80s guitars.

    I would love a NV, preferable without iron cross inlays. Maybe no inlays at all!

    Howdy guys. I'm a bit out the loop guitar front wise but seeing as it's nearly time for winter NAMM I'm interested in all the new ESP line ups especially their higher end stuff as some of you know.

    Could anyone make one big post of pics and of the new gear available? That would be epic

    Speaking of newly-available finishes, here’s one that people have been asking for all year long. Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett has been performing on tour over the past 12 months using a killer Purple Sparkle version of his ESP signature guitar, and now you can play it too with this updated LTD KH-602. The guitar includes new EMG Kirk Hammett Bone Breaker Signature pickups and an environmentally-friendly fingerboard made of Pau Ferro.[​IMG]

    I wonder how much that KH602 will cost? I am not a fan of cross bone inlays, but I love the finish!

    and the EMG bonebreaker pickups are probably just a variation of the 81/60 set.
