    Phenomenal guitar, and I commend you for having the patience to wait 13 months for it. I know I couldn't.

    I love me some cockstock. Reverse inline or even regular in line are great, but the second I inevitably bumped the tip of the headstock I'd be in tears.

    It turned out amazing.
    Words fail me. Congratulations!

    I think some of the battleworn camo covers by bareknuckle would look amazing in this one...

    And now for something different. Clean sound tests?

    I dig the Air Norton for sure, but I don't think the D Activator splits well personally nor do I think it goes with the Air Norton really well.

    Couldn't help it, the lows on the D Activator and this Marshall IR had a very particular sound...

    Thanks, I'll just assume that it's because you Despise the Sun.

    Yeah the sun was making the gloss go crazy so I didn't really see just how insane the top was and how badass you color choice was until the last one. The neck is beautiful too. I love the headstock as well. This is a small thing, but I like the pickup routes, it looks like you could fit covered ones/blackhawks in there... a problem I'm currently having with my DM guitar. (the corners on mine will not allow blackhawks to fit)

    Yes, this all works out perfectly for the black metal custom shop Seymour Duncans that I have on order. I was nervous about the routes being too small which is why I held off on ordering anything, but a guitar this rad deserves equally unique pickups. :shred:

    That guitar is absolutely gorgeous! I've also had great experiences with Tim at 6-string.

    When you go to play it and you open the case up and see it, do you dance? I would.

    One of the best looking ESPs I've ever seen! I saw it on ESP's Instagram recently and almost drooled on my phone's screen. Congrats sir!

    If I'm reading this correctly, you're saying you would keep it in a case. No can do good sir. It's hanging on the wall so I HAVE to grab it every time I walk by. That is when I'm not already playing it.
    That said, I am thinking about getting one of these SKB waterproof cases for it:

    No remorse, no repent.
    I really dig them, slightly larger than the Jazz III V2s that I was using religiously before. Faster release.
