    the mod on the ESP forum said we should expect the new models by march-april time-frame...some of the new models have already been at dealers for a while now.

    Nice, thanks for the timely reply. My SC607 should arrive tomorrow :yesway: I'm thinking maybe I should have waited for the mahogany ones to come out though.

    Yes I suppose I could do that, I already thought about it. I just fear I may grow an attachment to the SC607 that I'll already have :)

    um are you talking about returning a guitar to ESP if your not satisfied? FORGET IT!! It's not going to happen I begged and begged and they told me there was nothing they could do. Things may have changed since then but I seriously doubt it. Make sure your getting a guitar that you are at least 75% sure you are going to like.....because I ordered my stef B7 zero % sure whether I would like it or not....that's a very shitty feeling getting all excited about a new ax(had to wait 3 months for it BTW) to come in only to be like shit this thing just does not do it for me....will they take it back?lol:lol:



    but then again this was an ESP not an LTD they may make exceptions for that.

    Dude :lol:, most online retailers have a 30 to 45 day no questions asked return policy. It has nothing to do with ESP bro. I got my SC607 from SamAsh.com, not DerkaDerkistan. They'll honor it. You couldn't return yours because you special ordered it.

    You couldn't return yours because you special ordered it, man. No offense but it probably wasn't wise to drop $2700 on a guitar if you didn't know you'd like it and had no way to return it. Even places like Drum City Guitar Land who sold those offer a 48 hour approval period.

    Well okay I'll just say it.....I'm an idiot!!!!!:evil: Lust took over me in a big way and I did not know much about guitars and it was just so damn sexy looking. That's out the way now, but at least it's going to someone who I'm pretty positive is going to like it alot more than I have

    It's companion showed up today. It has a somewhat different vibe to it. I am going to be taking the pickups in this out and putting in Duncans or DiMarzios. Any recommendations for an all-maple guitar would be welcome :yesway:

    Yeah I love the Invader in my Rico, but I wonder if the maple might be too middy for it. Then again its neck-thru so its mostly maple anyways. Black hardware is a good idea too.I like the chrome on my black one but not as much on this. Good call :yesway:

    Pick up a Custom-7, yank the magnet, and drop in a alnico 5.

    I returned the sunburst SC607. I want to get the mahogany version that comes out in april instead. Keeping the SC607B though.

    Man ESP really is making me want a SC607 now... especially if it is mahogany... now I just need an ebony fretboard on that damn guitar and I will ditch my COWs finally and get one of those.
    Where did you hear about this wood change thing? Are you sure it is happening?
