You know as well as I do the extent of how badly I'd love to order up a custom Snapper or Horizon... Times are what they are :/

At least use a prettier picture if you're gonna compare them side-by-side like that!

What a line up!
I would love to get a small run of EIIs based on mine just so I could get a second one that I’d be willing to take on stage.

You could probably find a few guys on here that would be game for that in a heartbeat.

I'd buy an Eii version, no doubt

Also, placing my ESP USA order this week. Does that sound as ESP custom club? NGD in ~9 months.

Hi all!

Just wanted to share that i have just got my CS order confirmed with the Japan CS!

Key specs:

Body shape: Offset soloist (similar to the chris broadrick soloist)

Top wood: See attached pic (was originally meant for Exhibition 2021 but my dealer managed to get it for my build)

Inlays: Custom Ankh inlays

Rest of the details can be found in the spec sheet. Now the wait begins!

That’s going to look awesome. Always wondered if anyone actually ordered top woods as exotic as the exhibition guitars.

actually before speaking to my dealer, i had in mind to get a nice quilt top with a green burst finish. I wanted to select the piece of quilt being used to build it. 2 weeks later, my dealer came back to me showing me this piece that esp was planning to use for the exh and who offered it to us for our own build. Definitely couldnt pass on this for this guitar. Super excited to see how it will turn out

Hi Garga - Congratulations on your custom order! I'm getting ready to order as well from the Japanese Custom Shop. Is there a dealer that you would recommend to go through? thank you in advance!

Hi, it must be really exciting trying to spec one out - i kept changing the specs on mine until the last minute

im based in Singapore so i used my local dealer (davis guitar) who has tons of experience with customs as i got another one from them a few years back. If you are based in the US, theaxepalace or drumcityguitarland seem pretty well regarded too

Yeah between that one and some of their exhibition models I'd say the ESP custom shop does the best finishes in the business, absolutely wild

I feel like PRS private stock would have something to say about that... though they typically are working with nicer woods to begin with.

EDIT: actually maybe I'll take that back. Been a while since I checked out the exhibitions, and so many are gross and ostentatious, but clearly have some amazing finish results. Gotta give props to ESP for trying out so many new techniques.

PRS does great stuff, but rarely do they make me go "holy shit how did they even DO that" the way some ESP finishes do.

Thanks Garga! yes, it is exciting trying to spec it out. decisions, decisions, decisions! I am in the US and trying to figure out which dealer to do this through. Does anybody in the US have recent experience with a US dealer and the ESP Japanese Custom shop? this will be a big purchase and I want it to go smoothly.
