    These are all cool but i can't believe it's almost 6k to get it to say ESP on the headstock now.

    I always wanted the Japan version of these models for some reason, but can't really get them here; that's why I ended up ordering a Jackson years ago. When I am sitting down, longer horn digs into my leg when I am playing my ESP Alexi (USA shape)

    I feel like the USA Alexi walked so the Arrow could run, you know? Japanese Alexi's / SVs are awesome and certainly better than the USA sig shape but the Arrow rocks harder than both, IMO.

    Looks like one dealer got their allocation yanked by esp for taking preorders too soon. ESP isn’t playing around.

    Left my info with Axe Palace, hoping to hear back on either of the LTD pre-orders but it honestly wouldn't surprise me if they both sold out that fast. Fingers crossed.

    That's what happens when companies sell direct on their website and are in direct competition with their own small mom 'n pop dealers just trying to make a living.
    I guess this really is the cash grab model then :lol:

    He has a bunch of other ESP's though including a sweet Eclipse. Plus if they're willing to put that abomination Max Cavalera sig out to name just one gawdy Sig., then I dont think its an issue of shape!

    Gibson yes, EVH is fine since there is still a van Halen running it.

    These look pretty nice! I like the color. Not so fond of the slanted singlecoil, I think a more angular cover for that would have looked way better.

    Got my preorder in on the white pinstripe!

    I was on TAP's website at the same time as they had to take it down for preorders like Chondro, so it was just bad timing on my part. Deposit is down and I'm probably going to order a satin finish chrome pickup to the bridge, maybe something different than my go to Distortion.

    Cash grab and they should be ashamed of themselves.

    To me, the arrow is the Superior V, of all types.

    Isnt everything thats not on the barter system a cash grab? Are you suggesting ESP wants to make money off the sale of a line of guitars because up to this point manufacturing them for god and country doesnt pay the bills?

    It was also Alexi's oldest surviving model and his favorite as he's said many times. Something about the sound being slightly better, but not at first apparent. It never was my favorite visually but it's still damned cool. The katakana from the blooddrunk era or the scythe has to be it for me
