    Yeah, but they are limited, so I'm sure that is driving the price up. Cool guitar, but it seems more like they are making a collectable more than a player.

    nice to see esp has entered the multiscale market
    But I think they could do better than that aesthetically

    That multiscale needs a reverse inline headstock BADLY. It looks really wonky with the regular inline.

    The Ben Burnley sig is official now. The second knob is a 3 way rotary switch.

    This has me drooling. Always loved this model, but adding that Hipshot bridge makes it THAT much better.

    Yeah, the video doesn't make it seem like its a teaser. Moreso just a display of old custom shop instruments they made for long time artists.

    Yeah, but not sure why anyone expected a copy here anyway. They had to stop making them because of the lawsuit, they were too similar to Explorers.

    Great news!!!
    I have been trying to get my hands on an used NT-7B for a few weeks now to be honest but no luck so far. They are rare in Europe but I guess the long waiting has paid off, haha. Now I think I need to buy a new one. :lol:

    Gosh I love seeing Stef's B8FR. It always looks so pretty. I have no reason to own an 8 string, but I would love to see an actual production Horizon 8 or FR8 (preferably with a cockstock but inline 8 would be just as okke in this case)

    ESP made some absolutely insane custom guitars and basses for their NAMM booth this year! They don't even look like ESP made them.

    its always like that though, isn't it?

    ESP always steals the show with a wall of mind-boggling art pieces that look like they belong in the Louvre. (at least from what Ive seen in pictures)

    ESP site is updated. Very disappointing. There are so few new additions to the E-II line that I almost have to wonder if they want it to die. A couple of models got Evertunes...
    The Cult 86 is also not under the signature series, but it does have a "soft V" neck profile, FR Special... At $1150, no thanks. But I appreciate the idea.
