    I was just looking on sam ash and found this ESP Alexi Laiho Signature Model Electric Guitar Assorted Colors | Sam Ash Music 1-800-4-SAMASH now I think this is a clearout and is not as much as it would have been new. but I also found this on DCGL ESP 2007 Model Signature Series Alexi Laiho Black w/ Yellow Pinstripe 6-String Electric Guitar both under $2000 and Yes I know the one at DCGL is a 2007 model. but what I want to know is how much would one of the new "ESP" Alexi models cost? will it be more then $2000 or will it be something like $1800?

    What do you guys think?

    EDIT:

    Again, mods if this is in the wrong place. Im sorry :)

    I seem to recall $3000 but could be anywhere from $2k to $3k.

    Yeah brand new will be $2999 at DCGL unless prices have gone up. Thats how much the 2007 was brand new.

    so what do you think a 7 string to the same specs as the Alexi might run as a custom?:scratch:

    Probably a little less, unless you mean using the ESP Custom Shop then it'd probably be a little higher than the retail price

    Probably something stupid like $3500 just for an extra string. If you do get one, see if they'll do it with like just the single pickup route but no actual pickup so you can BKP it

    Couldn't I just get passive SD pickups if I went custom with it then BKP it? :lol:

    Oh Yeah I forgot about that :lol: I wonder how much Rondo would charge for a 7 tring Reaper:scratch:

    You could but still take a hit since you probably wont get the same amount you pay for to put it in

    ...maybe? I mean they would in a way save time and a pickup by not installing it

    I just did an almost exact match of an ESP Alexi-7 with a BKP Painkiller in the bridge for Ran and am waiting to hear back, so that should give you an estimate if you tack on like an extra $500-1000
