    Im surprised he didn't do a silverburst in the first place.

    Alex Skolnick said no? :lol:

    Wow that’s a teardrop burst gone wrong. That looks like an Abbath burst.

    Well 'woohoo'.

    I was just thinking how we're approaching year end, and how next year's new guitars will almost all be the same old shapes and designs but in the latest combinations of top woods and colours, which strangely seems to excite people.
    It's commercial trickery, the illusion of newness by endlessly switching around a few aspects of little significance. No real progression and extremely boring.

    How many non-wood space material based guitars are ever really commercially available to buy at any one time?

    My predictions?

    More maple goodness. Angel Vivaldi Charvel. Gus G releases is star with an ebony fretboard because it’s my prediction/wishlist and I can say whatever I want.

    Also people to start buying EMG’s again because the circle must be completed.

    And maybe a new Jackson signature model or two.

    Going for line drives here, lol.

    Brutallly true, but I'm personally fine with old shapes, I mean, my whole GAS list is built around Strats, LPs, Flying Vs, Teles, 80's superstrats and not much else, and makes me feel so very sadly old.
    That's also the reason why I feel so uncomfy with ESP new catalogs lately which is even sadder.

    I would buy that EC for sure, if its the T CTM it will be full thickness and likely still have a maple top.... and cmon silverburst. I could justify that for sure.

    That is a comically bad silverburst.

    Re-release the EII Eclipse 7 and offer a baritone option. Replace old EMG pickups with fishmans or 7 string black winters. Do eeeeet!

    I want more options with Black Winters, preferably seven strings with Black Winters as well.

    TBH I predict a lot of boring shit, same old same old. ESP needs something new and I'm not talking about sparkles and glitter.

    I bet they will realse like 20 black guitars, 10 with meh flame tops, and a new KH probably in a new sparkle. SC608B in new color. No floyd on 8s. Maybe 1 fan fret

    That would be amazing! We should sell our cars, to prepare to hitch a ride on the flying pigs that will occur then, as well. :lol:

    I'm going with @r3tr0sp3ct1v3 's prediction. Enough new stuff to make me go to their website and page through it all, only to realize that I'm giving them my time, but not my money.

    Hopefully Ibanez will have some new kickass models that I can't afford, but at least drool over. ESP has been disappointing me over the last few years. The only two things I found interesting were the Doris Yeh sig E-II bass (which I bought) and the Babymetal Arrow (which I can't afford).

    It really does look like dogshit, I dunno what's wrong with the way they've done it before.

    I couldn't agree more. They've had probably the best 7/8-string player roster for awhile now and seem to squander it.

    Don't get me wrong, they've released some cool stuff, but it's usually 600 series or below or released in such small numbers that actually getting something is a chore.
