    I have several guitars with the import Floyd 8 and never any problems. But Hantug is a super nice guy and his stuff looks amazing.

    I just don’t think the US site is updated yet, but did they mention new originals?
    I still want that offset Horizon.

    Yeah it’s definitely a little pricey. Ikebe-Gakki has the 8-string @464,000 yen, but after shipping I imagine it get’s pretty close to 500,000.

    Last year the ESP USA site wasn’t updated until the end of June. Not sure if C-19 was a contributing factor.

    Again, I don't see any new originals listed on the site (at least not Horizons, H3, Eclipse or Arrows)

    I don't think the KH-3 counts, since it's limited edition custom shop

    I like how the wider, longer neck makes the Snapper 24-fret body look less awkward IMHO.

    I've been musing over that guitar, but the cost puts it in the realm of a custom Schecter which could be spec'd exactly how you'd want it.

    As in they are available in most shops? Not sure I follow your meaning.

    I'd love a 24-fret 6 string Snapper (and likely will get one at some point), but the extra material removed definitely gives them a slightly different vibe. Not necessarily awkward in my eyes, just different.

    Like if he was referring to "trying one out" outside of Japan he's screwed. But even inside Japan there's a good number of shops that will still be reluctant to let you try it out on the high end stuff.

    I noticed the urban camo MII I just picked up last summer got a $200 price hike. ESP seems to be going up pretty quickly in price the past few years. I got a green SC20 the year they came out for $899. Now the blue and sunburst are $1099, granted you get a case now and I didn’t. I expect the SC LTD models will be 1500 here pretty quick, the 8 string anyways. I also noticed the single pickup SN-1 appears to be $100 more than last years 2 pickup SN-1000. In my opinion the Black Metal series seems to be the best value they have going now in terms of quality and specs relating to price.

    Everything is going up and lack of availability isn't going to help that at all. But there's really no question, the Black Metal and Arctic Metals are incredible deals. My Black Metal M is an insanely sick guitar and I got it used for $500 in amazing condition.

    If I understand it right, are they still releasing more stuff midway through 2021? There is a bass I thought was coming in the new year release, but no mention of it.

    Is it because you're a foreigner or they just don't want dents/scratches on the very expensive stuff?

    These are the two (updated) models I thought were coming out. Since they're both Ltd, I figured it's likely proof that they're going to be production models. Really hoping that bass is released. Been wanting to try bass Fishmans and that finish and the body shape work really well together.
