    Is the reason why the forest/forest x shape is so popular in japan because it looks like a rhinoceros beetle

    Stop attacking my Rhinocerous beetle!

    [​IMG]

    Legit though, it plays as well (if not better) than my Original Series Horizon, and it was loads less expensive. I'm not really into the ESP beetle aesthetic, but I dig this one. I don't consider it that weird (or ugly) when compared to say, Kiesel bevels. Different design languages.

    It’s cuz they’re more advanced than us. In the future, we will all love the Forest shape. I’m already there. I’m just waiting on you philistines.

    Yaaay moar confusion

    "The Eclipse" (actual headstock label on SOME 90s years) and "Eclipse Custom" (for the less-common shape + the 'Custom Guitars' logo on the back) have also been names associated with the MA/bolton/90s eclipses

    I used to love the Forest GT and FRX shapes, but ever since they fucked with the F-shape headstock, made it look freaking ugly, and stopped using the block font ESP logo for the headstock, I just can't see myself buying these shapes. I already have a Forest GT with the old headstock but I've been looking for an FRX with the original headstock for the longest time. The new F headstock just looks so damn ugly. The old one fit the Forest GT and FRX shapes so much better than the new one. Also before anyone says "F series headstock is just an ugly Schecter headstock", pretty damn sure the F Series headstock came first and it looks so much better than the Schecter headstock.

    The old block letter logo should be on every ESP.

    Again, hard false. Script is how you know you’ve gone fancy, and fancy is true way to be.
