Anyone getting one of these? I'm seriously gassing for one.
E-II ARROW-7 - The ESP Guitar Company
Looks pretty badass to me. I'm assuming the frets are stainless? Didn't see it in the specs
I checked one out at NAMM, I loved it! Although I didn't get to really spend time with it, it was super comfortable. The neck had a little bit of meat to it, but it was still flat. I would absolutely buy one, if I had the funds to do so.
Extremely unlikely that they would put stainless frets on this. It's not really an ESP thing.
Unlikely. ^ that guy has it. ESP is generally a conservative Japanese company (see Ibanez taking a decade to add "real pickups" below j-custom).
I've been really digging all of these recent E-II 7s with black finishes and the EMG 57/66 pickups (M-II, AJ EC-7, and this).
That being said, I think it came out looking worse than the other two models.
Body binding might help a little though.
^ Have to disagree. I think binding wouldn't look right on the body with the contours.
But that's one sexy backside...
The Arrow is my favorite ESP shape ever. I'm just glad it's no longer Japan exclusive, though I wouldn't mind them bringing the Andromeda bevels on the lower priced models.
I've got the LTD 6 string version on the way, but slowly taking my time. The store I'm getting it is trying to get me a free case as a token of good will being a loyal customer. They're still trying... But I'll get it eventually.
Not a big a fan of V shapes. :/
I've never been a huge fan of V shapes but the entire aesthetic of the Arrow is cool as hell. It looks like a model where form and function converge to be badass.
I have been waiting years to see a 7 string Arrow especially in this part of the world. Unfortunately I have too many guitars already and just bought a few recently.
I just really hope they make them for at least a few years so I can pick one up eventually without having to find one used. I made that mistake though with the Marc Rizzo BC Rich Stealth and now they are tough to find and when they do pop up(there's one on Reverb right now) they are quite expensive and I think its in Russia...
Yeah it's the nicest V shape I've ever seen. Pure old school thrash, yet modern looking.
^ very nicely said, and right on the money.
It's a guitar I'd like to see other people playing.
Make an LTD version of that with a Hipshot and you have me sold.
v's are second only to destroyer/explorer shapes for me, and i just love this.
i kinda reminds me of my esp custom shop flying a
Can I ask for more pictures? The finish looks fantastic!
That looks so killer!
There's a store in Toronto that seems to have a new Marc Rizzo Stealth in stock right now for just over 1k CDN.
I'll PM you, not sure if it'd count as advertising if I just posted it, even though I have nothing to do with them.
I would buy one of these in a heart beat if it had the 27" scale. Actually I'd probably buy two.
PLEASE ESP 27" scale on this model. PLEASE
Wouldn't mind it losing the inlays or at 12th and 24th only. But give me the 27" scale and I'll deal.
