    Good god this is tasty! Part of me wants to put together some cash for a custom ESP. Or maybe a limited run, hey just throwing that idea out there.

    Sounds like I will be official joining this club in October. My ESP custom is on the slow boat from Japan with a mid October ETA. Can't wait.

    Don't hold your breath. Mine left Japan late July and I'm still waiting.

    Not shocked since they come over on the same boat as the LTD's / EIIs etc.. ESP gave my dealer a date of the second week of October it would arrive. Weill see if that holds true or even close to when it really shows up.

    I have learned with all the custom guitar stuff I have purchased that the time that he builder or dealer tells you is more a hoped for delivery time than anything based off of reality.

    @Aso @Womb raider I feel your pain. That boat ride is the longest wait ever.

    The delivery times can be unpredictable for sure, thats why often just goto Tokyo to pick them up for customers.

    Speak of the devil I just got a tracking number for next week.
    I think the worst thing about ESP custom is not the build time wait, but the ship time. You know the guitar is heading your way but you have no tracking, no word if it gets held up in customs and no idea how long it will take to get through USA headquarters.
    I'm over here about to lose my damn mind.

    That's cool that you go to Japan to pick them up but I am sure you have enough orders that makes sense to do.

    That's great news. I keep watching the ESP instagram channel hoping that I see mine come through.

    It's pretty wicked seeing the Sparkle Pink Ohmura Snapper in your listings, @zimbloth. Nice to see some Japanese signature rep somewhere outside of Japan. Any chance you guys are getting the gold version in the future? I'm inquiring for a... friend.

    @zimbloth you should post up that rusty iron Horizon. I have loved it for so long now and it's so much closer to home. Makes the GAS pains worse. Back of the neck too please.

    Man, I've wanted one of those for ages, it's my favourite ESP. Glad you got one! I hope it's as good as it seems.

    Dude its been a multi year ordeal and a crazy ride getting this thing but I am so stoked to finally have one on the way. Though it looks like the damn hurricane is going to postpone it....I will give a full report when it arrives!

    In other news, was surfing reverb today and came across this guy at a sick deal. Should be here next week as well. Second one I've had and if its as good as the first its never leaving my possession unless I can convince ESP to refinish it in some batshit color....

    The 13 month journey is complete. Just got back from picking this up so no time for proper pics.
    Not everyone's cup of tea, but this has been on my bucket list for a while. They nailed everything down to the last detail and I couldn't be happier with the end result. I'm hopefully speccing out another build this week.
