    Looks off to me from the picture. A better picture would help but from that picture to go off of. I would definitely want more pictures from the seller. Here’s few pictures of my headstocks and logos.

    So a dude on Facebook made a rough mockup on what my ESP CS will eventually be if I go the light grey route instead of alpine pearlescent white:

    It'd be a much lighter grey to maximize the effect of the holo flakes, more like this.

    So how's the Epiphone 84 compare?
    :lol::lol::lol::lol:

    I think we just need to have a pinned thread for you: "my rig this week," just keep skipping the NGD posts.

    The Epiphone 84 is probably the closest you can get to a MX, Buuuttttt it’s not even close!

    MX plays better, better setup with less buzz then the 84. The fret job/fret ends are way better on the MX. The neck feels better IMO on the MX. But even though I have pretty much the same EMGs in them, the MX sounds better. The 84 seems to be a little muddier/mushier to me. Strange since both are pretty much same specs and woods. The 84 is a damn solid guitar though.
    If you want a MX and get find one the 84 is definitely worth getting IMO.

    Pic I took a few weeks ago. The area above the bridge has gotten considerably more glossy lately, haha.

    Thr other day i played my buddies 2008 M-ii bolt on and it was absolutley amazing. I couldnt get over how everything felt. I dont know if it was the fretboard radius, the frets, the strings, shape of neck, or what it was. But it felt sooo good particularly in the higher fret range. It just felt so easy to shred on. And now i am gassing hardcore for an m-ii. Can anyone say if the newer models would feel similar to this one? Also are they only with a floyd rose? I kinda prefer a non trem

    Yup, they haven't changed anything except color options on those. Should be no difference otherwise between the Standards Series and E-II models. No fixed bridge option on them unless you go ESP USA M-II which I can't say enough awesome things about.

    Hmm ill have to look at the USA models. But ill bet those come with a higher price tag. Also im not yet sure if i prefer neck thru or bolt on.

    And fwiw. Ive never owned a guitar that was over $600 brand new. So it could be that im used to lower priced range guitars therefore super "wowwed" by a higher end guitar. But man this guitar was awesome. Anyways it sucks because the sam ash's and guitar centers dont have ESP guitars unless theyre used. At least around here. Just LTDs

    If you like that neck shape, then stick with the bolt on. That’s extra thin flat. The neck thru models have extra thin U. It’s probable you might equally like both, but there is a difference.
    You can buy 80s/90s MIIs and Mirages pretty cheap if you’re vigilant enough. They’re absolutely killer.

    To be honest i think what i fell in love with, was on top of the guitar. So it was a combo of the frets, fretboard and strings. It has to be. Im a person that doesnt like flat thin necks. I dislike Ibanez guitars because of their necks. So theoretically, i shouldnt like the ESP "flatter" necks either. But the neck didnt really feel like an Ibanez flat neck so much.

    It could have been in part due to the strings because he uses steel strings. Could it hVe been the frets? I think that played in part in difference in feel.

    Is it possible that there is an LTD that will have the same exact feel?

    No LTD will have comparable neck feel and fretwork to an SS ESP. It will be good, but you’ll feel the difference.
