    Thought this looked pretty awesome as I'm a sucker for Rhoads-style V's. Waiting to see a price tag on announcement and I may pick one of these up.

    The only place I've seen anything about it at all so far is on the ESP instagram page from a few weeks ago. There's a video of it on there as well.

    Isn't this just a one-off custom for him?

    Gary posted it on Instagram but I haven’t seen him play it live. It was brought out to one of the last shows. I love this guitar minus the blood splatter, never been a fan of that finish.

    :agreed:

    All the ESP USA stuff is one-off.

    Well, I suppose someone could put in an identical order. :lol:

    It's just an ESP USA V-II in white with custom graphics. You could probably order it now (~$4500 because of special paint) from them.

    Unless they change things, ESP USA is custom order only, not production, so unless they're doing a special run, putting in an individual order would be the only way.

    he did the same kind of finish with his schecter V back when he was endorsed by them
    Anyways V suits him better than eclipse :)

    Never really liked blood splatters, tbh.

    OK, Boomer.

    Jk, I love Slayer and V's. I wish you could get the V in E-II or LTD. I'm not in love with "notch" on the Arrow.

    You know you're getting old when you look at a red splattered guitar and begin having flashbacks of all your bloodiest accidents. Initial cool factor but I agree with a couple others... naw.

    I wasn't a fan of the rounded Schecter ones he had and Eclipse's in blood splatter? Yuck!

    But this is a completely different beast all together. I think I'm old enough to have gone full circle and like what my teenage self would to, so a big YES!
