    Bevels and ESP are nothing new, the Vipers have had them for a long time. I'm actually fine with bevels so long as there's no tacky wood/top change. *eyes Ibanez*

    Over $2k is significant

    I am willing to bet they might be a bit cheaper in the U.S. ESP Usually tacks on $100.00 per year for MIJ models in the U.S.

    $1600-1900

    It goes up and down. It was climbing towards the end of the ESP SS, but most EIIs have been more mid to upper $1000s.

    The M-II 7 looks cool. Looks like a 25.5” scale. I don’t really dig the finish and wish it had a trem, though.

    American prices are ridiculously low for most things, in Canada you're looking at like 2250 minimum for an E-II

    The two new 7's :hbang::hbang:. Also, looks like they're coming with BKP's? At least that's what the covers tell me. I expect them to be in the 2200 range, and nothing short of awesome

    The closest thing about that guitar to the one I had made is that it also has 6-strings and 22 frets, :p

    Agile was a top choice!

    Yes, ESP has teamed up with Bare Knuckle Pickups to produce pickups for some of their new models. Not sure which model, but my guess is Aftermaths.

    It would have veneer top just like all SS/E-II's, but it would probably still look nice. I wouldnt be shocked to see some of the USA Line finishes start to appear on the lower lines. They arleady did it with this LTD EC-1000 in Violet Shadow.

    I would do evil things for a ESP USA arrow in their fire rust metallic. unfortunately they seem to be keeping the esp USA line fairly conservative shape wise.

    I was happy they added the Viper to the USA line after they removed the Horizon. There are a good amount of people who like Vipers, but I wouldn't think there is enough interest in an Arrow for them to add it to the line. Though that would look awesome in Fire Rust Metallic.

    This was probably their intention, but I'm seeing the trend of the USA line picking up guitar shapes that are no longer produced through the Original Series line (Eclipse, Viper, M). Horizon is still up in the air, but for the most part you can't order from USA anymore unless you are a dealer and it's a one-off. Doubt we will be seeing a USA V shape, but I could be wrong.

    I genuinely hope ESP USA brings the Horizon back to their line. I've heard great things about them and would love to order a Horizon - but it needs a cockstock + Floyd.

    OMFG that purple is sooo much yes!!!, why I already have a 7 string on order and broke lol

    I thouhg the purple sparkel of Petrucci was perfect, now theres a whole line of guitars inspired by it lol. and I though the Head 7 was cool, this just takes the cake. it jsut needs some chrome pickups or not donno. mmm so beautiful

    remember we in Australia get a price hike from you guys, so bet you the price overthere would be less

    I was thinking about that after the fact. Crazy considering proximity.

    Also, I fully believe the Horizon is coming back. There's no way the Viper is considered more sellable.
