    Despite the looks, the guitar is more old school than it seems, which means no super low action and a thicker neck than expected (it actually feels way more similar to my R8 Gibson Les Paul than my other ESPs) but as far as I know, these were usual specs for Lynch signature models because that's how the man likes his guitars. Anyways, it plays like butter and sounds just like expected: a 80s-90s hard rock / metal machine.

    By the way, thanks a lot for the input, guys.

    That's crazy, I actually dig the headstock. Maybe not so much on such a curvy body but I think it's worth then revisiting for the angular models.

    I've seen that headstock on old Tech / Craft House builds before. The TH and CH guys do the really wild, "draw it on paper and we'll make it" sort of stuff and have been doing so for a long time. Specs or info wise though short of taking it to those guys yourself there's no real way to know.

    I was considering buying that at one point haha.

    I swear I've seen a similar custom ESP headstock like that back in the day.

    Some fun customs I designed recently for my shop (all sold already), plus a couple Original Series Snapper-7s. The top right one is a 2021 model available in the US.

    We can literally get any model thats offered in Japan imported here, and do. They just choose a select few to be in the US catalog officially.

    When I click on this thread and it goes to page one I always get a GAS hard on about my own custom in the first post. Lol.
    Since it’s going on five years that I’ve had it and this thread is to drool over customs and entice more, it’s relevant to say I absolutely love it and play it every day. No guitar I’ve ever played compares.

    To me, this is the “icon” guitar. Whenever I see an Mx, I just think Hetfield with that angry fucking snarl on his face yet in such tight command of his playing and just melting faces.

    I really didn’t mean anything by it other than a hard penis over a couple models, but if you’re gonna push (and hit my dm’s) but I’d love another 7 string snapper in Floyd and for sure would love a MX-250 variant if that would be at all possible.

    The original Snappers that they made in trans orange and trans red were perfect. Never saw them anywhere but on Ebay, though.
