It had a feature article along with a black one on the Technical House site a few years ago, if I had $1k more I would have hit the BIN already

Is it just me or is the long horn like five times its normal length, and the headstock curves awkwardly backwards? I like the concept, color scheme, and the carved top, but it just doesn't look as "right" as a real Rhoads does. Jackson still does a Rhoads better than anyone else (And copyright law ensures they will continue to do so) :D

pretty sure it's the normal shape, and ESP's Jackson-heastock is actually less bent backwards than Jackson's is, it extends straighter from the neck.

Could ESP try to rip off Jackson any harder?
actually the ESPs were made earlier, but yeah :lol:

The guy who ordered them said the Jackson design hurt your arm and sucked, so he had them put the bevels on it.

That's a really cool looking guitar. Love the fretboard and the black and white colors.

I think that's why ESP can't use that headstock any more. Jackson filed an infringement action against them. The ESP headstock isn't angled as sharply, so the strings pull a bit straighter. I quite like it, actually.
