Anyone have thoughts on the FR 1000 vs FR 1000se? I couldn't find much through googling.
If I'm not mistaken, the se just has upgraded stainless steel parts. Honestly though, my Music Man JP16 has a normal 1000 and it's absolutely fantastic, so the se is even better. More so for future proofing the parts.
I think the Japanese vipers seems slimmer.
24.75” scale on the ‘87 Eclipses!? What the freakin’ heck!?
It's the '80s, shorter scales was the in thing.
Billy K with Duncan now?
I am super tempted by the black metal phoenix. hawt damn.
Where exactly: https://www.espguitars.com/products?categories=esp-original-series-guitars
They're on the Japanese site. Should be able to order them to the US without much trouble. If you want to use a US dealer, contact Jason at Drum City Guitarland to see if he can order it (I suspect he can).
Thanks for explaining. I'm actually in the UK, so not sure who (if anyone at all) would sell these here... I guess I will stick to the EII EC 7 I've had my eyes on for a while now, but one can dream...
Maybe next year
Kind of odd it’s the only one with Fishmans pickups though. Wish they would have stuck with The Black Winter.
C’mon KH MUMMY...
EDIT: NVM, I don't know model names. Move along, nothing to see here.
That's the shame of the ESP exhibition series. They use tons of gorgeous looking wood, just look at how many models this year have a body made completely of high grade flame maple. Unfortunately, they're so ungodly expensive that most of them just sit in dealer stock or in ESP's Japanese Big Boss and other ESP direct shops for years and years and years. Imagine how many high quality flame maple veneers for the E-II or Edwards series they could've gotten out of these flame maple body guitars. E-II and Edwards have weak AF looking veneers these days.
Well AFAIK E-II use veneers over maple caps, so they wouldnt likely use the nice woods for those anyway But apart from the price, it's a thing of appearance...they look like pieces of art, but no guitars
Before E-II, ESP standard series and the Edwards guitars at the time all used veneers over maple caps but ESP still bothered to use high quality flame maple for the veneers. Now, there's barely any figuring at all.
I have not seen examples of E-IIs recently (my attention goes to other type of guitars, mainly strats and LPs) so I trust you on this
I used to be a huge ESP fanboy. I still like how they feel. But in the last decade they've changed a lot and become so expensive I'm just not interested in any of their newer guitars. I find myself shopping for used ESPs from the 80s-early00s.
Guitars Rebellion in France might be able to order it for you if you contact them.
