    NBD: Too good for the other instruments forum

    Received a relic from the past today. I stepped into a time warp and found myself at ESP staring at what I simply had to have.

    Brought to you by the 1992 ESP Guitars Export market catalog.

    At first I saw a half baked attempt at a boxing job where two were hacked into one but inside was the goodness:

    I popped open the box and inside was this sweet 20 year old Magenta awesomeness. After adjusting the truss rod and action on the low B string I was in business. I have to say of all my scores over the years I think this one definitely is at the top.

    The colour has a subtle pinkness to it, It's more like a light cherry colour than what you would think of if someone said magenta.


    And yeah it has brand new EMGs apparently no idea why.

    That's both pretty sweet and immaculate, but no way did they sell more than like a dozen of those in 1992.

    They've actually got the 4-string on the ESP Japan site as an old model. They have the most random crap on there.

    That's really awesome. Love P/J setups, and the color and belly carve are great!
