    In my country there's a saying who goes "those who steal from a thief earn a hundred years of forgiveness". Anyway still sad and missing Ran guitars.

    Both the Ran and ESP are clones of his Hondo Death Dagger ...

    I heard that Chuck Norris once copied a RAN proprietary design.

    I get the coolness factor but he told me it’s a really difficult guitar to play and next to impossible to play past the neck joint/strap lock position. I notice he writes or used to write a lot of his parts based on this limited range.

    That's why he had ESP build it as a neckthrough and shave the neck heel transition this time. It doesn't have the bulkier heel of his old guitars.

    It's weird that they didn't at least use an ESP headstock. As already mentioned, both the body and headstock shape were lifted from an old Hondo H1 Death Dagger. Regardless, it looks awesome.

    Those shaped guitars are the most disgusting thing I have ever seen.

    With all those angles I kinda think it should be multiscale, would fit well

    Another plus of this design is if you need a bottle or a can opened, it's got you covered!
