    ESP posted this photo to Instagram a little earlier today. Those AAL boys sure like their figured woods and gold hardware. Looks like a carbon fiber look guard to match the truss rod cover is likely as well since all Javier's stuff seems to have a guard.

    Well if there's ever been a timeless and classy combination of materials, it'd have to be quilt maple and carbon fiber and gold hardware and cream binding and white binding.

    Javier has awesome taste in guitars. Wonder if he'll go with the standard 27" or longer since AAL is going to C# on some songs.

    Anyways, 8 string mystique with black quilt top, gold hardware and possible/probable carbon pickguard? Tasty. Different, a little flashy, but not trashy.

    Well it will likely have a signature set of pickups from someone and some good solid hardware. Roughly around the price of the Ben Weinman sig would probably be good estimate. If its under $1000 I would be surprised.

    I think the carbon fiber looks incredibly out of place...

    awesome!, Javier trully deserves it :yesway:

    not sure about the carbon fiber, I think it looks good on the truss-rod cover, but more than that would be overkill IMO
    but still, I'll gladly take a new 8 string that isn't flat black by ESP/LTD. Ibanez and Schecter already got that shit solved up a few years ago

    the mystique is a carved top though, how are we imagining a carbon fibre pickguard on it?
    Or are we imagining a flat top?

    ^^^ I was kind of wondering the same thing, I'm hoping their isn't one, but his Strandberg has an out of place pick guard (ok thats totally just my opinion but. . . ) so maybe his sig will have one.

    If so I hope they stick with the carved top and do a Les Paul style raised guard. . .

    All we have is a headstock now. You never know what the body will look like. He was playing a horizon before so a carved top is probably likely.

    Could pretty easily slap an LP-style raised pickguard on there.

    Looks like real carbon fiber to me.
