    As @Albake21 alluded to, it appears as though for certain models it can be MiK or MiI. My assumption is that ESP is slowly phasing out production from Korea (at least for their 1000 series, maybe not the 600 series), but who knows.

    For example this EC-1000 Sweetwater exclusive had some Korean and some Indo:

    Korean:

    https://www.sweetwater.com/store/de...ater-exclusive-violet-shadow?serial=W19080577

    Indo:

    For EC-1000's here are a few more 2019's from Korea:

    There were some pictures of the then new factory in China where EII guitars were visible on the racks a few years ago. It led to a lot of confusion and ESP taking it down.

    Do I see scallops there? A trick of the light perhaps.

    Oh wow sandblasted finishes now. Meh scallops, though these fingers will never grace the upper frets they’re likely isolated to anyway, so I guess I’d be fine with them.

    Hard to tell from the pic, but not only does the fretboard look scalloped, it looked like the fretboard and the neck are one solid piece, which would be really old school (and cool to see).

    A bit off-topic but did anyone try this guitar ?

    https://www.thomann.de/fr/esp_ltd_k...FUaG_9RQMc1-JUw2d0YLJoAqZRAAZuT8ito1fRn8nKja0

    I'm looking for something with a feel between my Prestige and my LTD MH, like smooth neck profile but medium weight, evertune equiped and with fishman's or good tight passives (BW, SH6, Aftermath).
    This one seems to tick all the boxes in that price range

    +Also, are there any new evertune models announced ?

    Man I've been eyeing this model since it first launched last year. It has pretty much every single thing I'm looking for in an evertune equipped guitar. I check Reverb almost daily hoping for a used one to pop up.

    It was from an email sent by ESP to their mailing list, no insider knowledge or anything mysterious!

    They did this for a few of the "phase 1 2020" releases too.

    Don't listen to this man. Paypal me $Tree-fiddy and I'll let you know about the new ESP releases. Only one per week though. :)

    Got it in my mail to. Looks like an LTD Snapper with a roasted maple neck and fretboard. Dare we hope for ss-frets??! :fever:

    Looks like SS to me. Nickel frets rarely get that much of a shine to them on production instruments.
