    Sexy neck, but everything below 15th fret looks like it crawled outta a dumpster fire

    Japanese ESPs always interest me - I'd love to see more Japanese signatures come over as E-IIs. They recently did another article on Japanese sigs on the main website after the original piece last Spring, so maybe things are more going in that direction? The west needs more wacky Japan sigs, that's for sure. I feel like I'm the only one in Canada importing the weird half of ESP sometimes. Apart from the ones you mentioned, I think the Ohmura, Fujioka and (other) Sugizo models could survive over here.

    There’s one Japanese artist that basically spec’d out a snapper-like model and with the curves/cutaways basically made a JP6. With sparkles. I want it.

    @Mathemagician I'm gonna ballpark it and say this is what you're referring to?

    That’s it! Man that should just be a default body style. So sleek. Like a JP meets Jackson B6

    It's Candy Apple Red, I imagine it's difficult to photograph but I would expect some sort of sparkle or flake upon closer inspection / in correct lighting.

    You may be interested in this:

    An E-II BTL-G7 prototype for Jon Chang. It's in limbo as far as I'm aware, though I've read he wants to put on an Evertune, increase the scale length to 27" and accentuate the bevel a bit more. One of those oddball possible limited run / signatures ESP cooks up now and again. If you dig that, though, and want it enough you could always go with the ancient Bottomline GT:

    Somewhat similar, though I feel it more or less evolved into the Horizon-III.

    Both those models are pretty cool. And that red one does definitely look like a precursor to the H3.

    Not a big fan of true offsets myself. Played only a couple but the big butt doesn’t quite sit well when I play classical style. Like, the body ends up feeling bigger than it really is or something.

    I dig the natural black HSS Snapper, but it's not Phoenix nice.

    EDIT: ok, Pegasus bridge pickup, definitely not interested.

    Something I just noticed from the ESP page. "The M-1000 includes an EMG 57TW/66TW pickup set with push-pull controls on volume and tone to split each pickup discretely."

    So splitable EMG 57/66... Color me interested.
