    Funny story..from what I recall, the Trivium dudes hated their Dean endorsements and couldn't wait to get other guitars. I don't remember exactly why but the gist of it was Dean was shitty to them

    yeah and Heafy bitched so much when the headstock broke that it ended their endorsement.

    I have no idea... Kind of looks like it is the part "missing" from the pickguard but it isn't...

    Did that really happen - the endorsement ending over complaining?

    No. They hated Dean because Dean was shitty to them. Maybe the guitar breaking was the last straw.

    The ESP V guitars are rad, and I always wanted a DV8. I have a V-350 that I've turned into a project guitar (that will eventually get done!!). This is probs my favorite V, though:

    I've read that Matt and Corey tried to get deals with Gibson and Jackson respectively in the Ascendancy days and got turned down so Dean swooped in because they were a hot commodity; by the time they were in the Shogun cycle and the Deans were falling apart both brands were willing to take them on. Dean was just a stopgap and one that I dont think either of them was particularly enthusiastic about

    After hearing about Alexi Laiho's passing, I'm posting his ESP 135838220_250921713056579_7994781582447161355_n.jpg V in honor of one of my favorite shredders of all time. RIP Laiho!

    I think I roughly remember a local mag interview right after they went to Jackson and Gibson. Might have been the honeymoon period for the new endorsements or just bad blood between them and corporate, but they were trashing Dean hard over the how many problems they had with the guitars.
