That is sick axe, bro. Everything about this is perfect.
DCGL had one too! Actually thought you snagged their’s. I hope esp makes these more available.. a la the esp stef models
Thanks man..I was googling away at this guitar, now I want one..
7 strings, evertune, neck through, Fishman pups, ebony fretboard..
Except for the 7 strings, these are features I miss with Ibanez. I'm sure Head felt the same way.
That blue flamey Kiko sig from a few years back is one of the nicest ESP's ever!
Thanks It sounds SOOO mean.
What an amazing guitar! I love the color, and really don't mind the pickup rings. I actually prefer rings for function, but direct mount for aesthetic. Congrats on a cool, very unique guitar!
I almost bought an E-II Horizon 7 string with an EverTune. I ultimately decided on getting a Horizon with a Floyd Rose instead, actually two of them. I have heard nothing but great things about the EverTune, but I would prefer to try playing on one before committing to a purchase.
The EverTune isn't for everyone, for sure. I honestly dont love it, but I don't mind it either. It wasn't really a factor in me wanting this guitar. It does work though as advertised. Definitely try before buying.
Gotta hand it to ESP for making the coolest looking Ibanez ever.
Can you elaborate why it isn't for everyone? I have 1 floyd and 3 Ibanez locking trems. I basically never use the trems anymore but I like the tuning stability, that's why I'm so interested in the evertune system.
Many find the EverTune system robs a guitar of a bit of its resonance. Also many dont care for how it effects the vibrato. This guitar, being an ESP custom shop and thus impeccable quality, more than makes up for any of those things. However, I think it has some validity to it.
My main issue with ETs is: is it even necessary? A guitar with properly filed nut, locking tuners, etc should stay in tune just fine. The only real advantage I see it in is in the studio if you just want to remove ALL doubt about anything not being perfectly in tune, cool.
I love this guitar, all im saying is if it didnt have an ET I wouldnt necessarily think of that as a negative. My other ESP CS Horizons have recessed Gotoh TOM style bridges which I definitely prefer the tone and feel of.
This is one hell of an upgrade to the K7s he used to use lol. I bet it being a maple neck-thru really helps those lows pop out well. Playing in A standard with Fluences in my 1077XL is heavy AF, i can only imagine how those pups sound in maple!
I think, personally, Misha had the best idea by combining both the ET bridge on top of the True Temperament Frets, but only for his recording guitars. The biggest pain in the ass when recording is the guitars staying in tune, especially if theres some time lapse between recording individual tracks in a song. While I dont find it neccesary to go THAT far, I can see WHY he did it. For me, the jury is still out on the ET.... for me, I just cant get around how it feels under my palm. Ive grown to accustomed to the LoPro lol
So what are you selling it for since the evertune isn’t working out for you
It's not currently for sale. I was saying before I love the guitar in spite of the Evertune. However if you are serious about it, I can let you know what I would sell it for should I decide to move on from it.
What an amazing guitar
And yet it STILL has the damn volume knob right up on the pickup!
Its recessed, so therefore is not a problem. I think this is one of those age-old misconceptions that pictures dont convey properly. The knob is out of the way as it is recessed.
Ahhhh, that makes sense. It’s not on my old M-207, which is a flat top, so in*assumed*... Would love to try one these one day!
Did they stop with the nice shiny polished fretboard wood???
