    Apparently they've been doing so well they can't keep up with production, so they haven't been adding more since they're about 18 months (as of last year) behind on existing E-II orders from dealers.

    If they've whittled that down to ~6 months maybe we'll see new stuff.

    i dunno, haven't seen that many ngd's that would suggest this...
    most esp-threads i know basically disappeared with the tranfer to e-ii...

    I wouldn't base anything on NGDs. Not every guitarist is active on the forums, especially here.

    I’m sure they are doing just fine. E-II was so behind on production last NAMM that they delayed the new releases and that was before COVID.

    This preview has me exited for 7 strings, multiscales and baritones, hope next preview will have something here.
    Has ESP ever made a guitar with a scale longer than 28"?

    It came out of the mouth of one of the higher ups at ESP last year just before NAMM that there would be no new E-II's. It was because of the backlog and inability to fulfill orders. The E-II has been anything but a failure.

    I think once everyone realized they were the exact same quality as the old standard line everyone just got over it. They make great guitars that are essentially more modern takes on classics. Its a great spot to be as the audience is less fickle than say the next Djent/scene fanned fret 8 string trend.

    Wish I had 1200 to throw around. If I had that much to shake my djent stick at I'd get a pc :djent:

    I've been wanting to get the LTD black metal arrow for a while but I've always been hesitant due to not really needing aother floyd. Glad to see they made the decision for me by making a string through model :agreed: That thing is seriously killer!

    That H-1001 would be perfect with a cockstock. What a shame.

    ESP throwing SS frets on almost all new LTD announced like they're Oprah. Very interested in getting one now.

    A massive shame. One of the coolest 3x3 headstocks and they're barely touching it.

    My question is tho what's up with all the rosewood? I would actually go for an EC1000 or maybe the black metal F if they didn't have those funky brownish boards.
