    I would really love to see one of the PT's in person. They must be so sparkly. And I love sparkly.

    Ok i can deal with that. Sorry if my analogies were confusing. And i dont want to argue with anyone. I just felt that my initial post was belittled because i didnt like the e-ii thing. Will try to post with more clarity in the future. Peace.

    @Ikke got this well covered. I'm saying E-IIs are fine guitars. I've owned four now (I think??) and I'll own more. I've had two LTD Elites, probably 15 or so ESP Standards, three customs (of which I still own, as I forever will, one). I'm not dissing on the brands, I'm just pointing out that there are differences in the tiers. By ESP's own standards, they want to reserve "ESP" for the headstocks of custom shop built instruments (which includes the Original and USA lines). The name comes with the tier and I'm pretty comfortable saying that anything from the customs to the 400 series LTDs are fine guitars, but some are much better than others.
    Not trying to beat a dead horse here. I think the confusion has been mostly settled. So back to the sick guitars and my sheer envy of @eelblack2 's acquisitions.

    I so very much support this.
    I'm a bit out from being able to get another Custom/Original/US ESP, but I'm always looking, always planning. Still shopping custom quotes too, at this point, payments over a year period is going to be the wiser move, I'm just not permitting myself to use credit cards anymore.
    Give it time, we all know I'll be back.
    That said, I'll proudly say what I think every single day for the past year+, my Custom shop Horizon is the best guitar in the world. I have absolutely no regrets. It's perfect.

    Let's get that Page and Donais in there too!!
    Actually, we should get a whole wall shot again since you're pretty much covering the epic ESP gamut these days.

    Yep. Thats all good except most of it has nothing to do with the context of your first reply to my original comment. But lets just move on.

    Yup, maybe if there is some actual sunlight in the house tomorrow.

    Still my favorite Horizon ever.
