    Wow, I haven't owned a V for a while, but if this goes into production then I might have to pick one up...

    That band sure does know how to pick out pretty instruments. I really like this guy's sigs and the sig basses. Great band, great instruments.

    I rarely like V shaped guitars. This one is awesome!

    It is hard to determine the scale length from these pics but I won't be surprised if they are 25.5 just like the first version. Maybe 26.5? I own the ESP version and I had some intonation issues with the low B string (still a killer guitar! I ended up with the standard 7 string gauge) . I have tried thick strings too but I felt the tone was too muddy with heavier gauge. Chthonic's songs are all in standard 7 string tuning (so far) and I assume Jesse kept it 25.5.

    It would be fantastic if Jesse himself or someone from this forum who knows Jesse in person can confirm this for us! Also very interested to know the guitar's specs too. I am assuming it is Alder body, maple top, maple neck ebony fretboard with Lundgren or Duncan.

    Getting old sucks. I was trying to figure out why I didn't like it and found myself saying "that's too metal."

    Be still my heart! :eek:

    Oh yeah, my GAS levels are overflowing here. Usually I don't go for single humbucker guitars, but this wasn't made for diversity. :lol:

    I'd throw a black winter in there and let er rip! :wub:

    Ok, the neck seems very wide because the body is actually pretty small.

    Imo that looks hideous compared to his current production model. I hope that this will not replace his current signature model.

    Not typically a fan of the ESP/LTD V shapes but this is killer!

    If the first sign had a longer scale I would have bought one long ago...
