    I was gassing hard for this guitar for the longest time, and finally caved in and ordered one. Boy it does not dissapoint. I won't go into too much details but I love it. I'm a huge fan of the ESP neck, Black Winters, reverse headstocks, and black guitars so this is a perfect fit for me. I kinda wish I got a nicer piece of Ebony but honestly this thing plays so I good I don't even mind. As a huge Jackson fanboy, it's making me think of selling a few of my Jacksons for more ESP's. Seriously. I'm already thinking of getting the matching Arrow. Enough talk, time for some pictures:

    That's a very cool and downright mean looking axe. Love the 'stealth' finish. Reverse headstock FTW! A damn fine score!!

    Yeah usually I'm all about some natural ebony but the whole deal with the black metal series is blacker than the blackest black so I think these should come with fretboards dyed or even ebonol or richlite.

    Unless they are really high end, those were probably dyed. The Stew Mac pictures aren't great, but that stuff does work. I've done it to rosewood before and it was jet black when I was done.

    Here's a before/after video (not me).

    Grats! I saw one pop up used yesterday for a fair price and I was GASing hard for one of these once again...

    I only noticed the logo yesterday myself. The logo is not totally my thing I would prefer a regular black logo on top of the matte black, kind of how Jackson does their blackout RR. Such a small hard to see detail though. And how dead simple pure badass the guitar is makes up for it. They even blacked out the SD logo which is even more awesome.

    PS If you're a RR guy like me the Arrows are massive in comparison.

    Beautiful guitar.
    I wish ESP would make something similar to the Jackson’s Doom Soloist. It would fit perfectly in the “black metal” series

    After having owned 2 89-90’s Japanese RR’s I just felt like the guitar bodies were really small. Is the arrow wider, longer, or both?
