I'm still deciding on what to do, as much as I love the H3, its carved top digs right into my forearm. Like to the point where my arm is bruised after playing for an hour.
Style of the logo is fine, I'm mostly referring to the aesthetic of the text itself. I like the shape of "E-II", I just don't like the combination of letters and Roman numerals as a brand name.Interesting, I actually think the E-II logo looks a lot better than Edwards. Just looks more aggressive whereas the Edwards logo looks like a toy. I'd even consider putting an E-II logo on this Edwards. I would think that's more than fair.
Strap, as in standing? This is SSO. I'm a bedroom musician, with too much gear for my own good, who plays sitting down 99% of the time.I had a similar thing with another flat topped guitar and found I could eliminate it by raising the strap. You might get a more forearm friendly angle by raising or lowering the guitar.
My issue was numbness in my hand though, not bruising.
See that's what I said I'd do from the start, but then was roasted for it regardless.Here's a clearly unpopular take:
I don't hate the idea of ESP on an LTD, as long as the "LTD" is somewhere obvious enough that it's not an attempted fake. One way I've considered doing it before is "ESP" on the front of the headstock and the "LTD" on the back in the circle the way "ESP custom shop" appears on custom shop models.
Reminds me of how some Squiers used to read "Fender" in the large logo and "Squier Series" out on the end.
If the real pedigree is printed somewhere permanent enough that you're not trying to trick anyone, I don't think it's dishonest.
I'm not above being roasted on here either, so that's alrightSee that's what I said I'd do from the start, but then was roasted for it regardless.
I did watch a KDH video he uploaded today about it. Does not look pretty, tbh. I wonder what will come of it.Tumbleweed! But on ESP...has anyone seen the shit show on Chondro Guitars vs ESP Custom Shop? Lawsuit incoming on that and I don't mean the ESP Headstock.
