    Nice, never tried the Hipshot brand. Didn't know they made them. Hard to see the string angle and idk, guess I would just have to try one. I just play slower and struggle with the traditional TOM and is why I sold my beautiful Horizon.

    In the end they are all TOM replacements, so there is bound to be similarities if you are aiming at the same kind of improvements on the original design.

    Especially if you want them to be drop-in replacements for a wide range of guitars.

    I’ve never seen any others this wide and low profile.

    I've VERY rarely seen one-off LTDs, so that has to be a prototype for a new model.

    "it’s an LTD m-1000 multiscale. Originally natural satin finish on the body, had it re-finished in black gloss with a custom pickguard. Apart from that, everything else is stock." the guitarist responded in the youtube comments. Also a non-reversed headstock for multiscale is a big mistake.

    I imagine it's probably more just to have space for the tuning pegs, without having a headstock as long as the neck.

    It also helps to keep it from looking retarded af. How is the reverse pointy inline not the obvious choice? The frets are leaning forward from the top. The reverse pointy inline is literally pointing forward from the top.

    What about the break-angle towards string-through holes or tail piece? Doesn't the back of the bridge need to be notched out?

    Production version of Jon Deiley's ESP custom for 2020 would be nice. Unlikely to happen off course but one can always dream :D

    Fuck me... as a super strat lover, that thing is cool as hell. The addition of the Black Hawks make it perfect!

    I'd be willing to bet those are Impulse's since they are the sig set for Josh from Northlane. But hey, maybe Jon says FU and goes with Blackhawks just because, haha.

    If it ever releases, it'd probably be another limited-edition AU exclusive.

    I'm getting tired of all the UNFD drop-G tuned nu-metal-vapor-djent-core bands. Start to sounds like the 2020's era Rise Records.

    This probably doesn't interest any of you and it's way too late but I'd love to see E-II versions of the ESP [001] Aiji Signature Model and ESP Amaze CTM in Indigo Purple and Faded Blue. I tried both of them in Japan and they're soooo nice to play. The Aiji Model has a weird combo of a soft V neck shape and small size frets, not at all the usual ESP Thin U and Extra Jumbo frets combo but god damn was it a dream to play on. Next, the ESP Amaze has got to be one of the best playing basses ever. The E-II line used to have an orange and black Amaze but it didn't have a clear pickguard, pickup fence, or the ESP Cinnamon 3 band EQ or the beautiful indigo purple color. I'd really love to see affordable models of these.
