One of the coolest things about these guitars IMO is the cutout on the body for fret access.
But I started noticing that the cutout appeared higher on some than on others.
Compare these two:
Does anyone know what the difference is? At first you might say "the one on the right is an LTD. That's the difference." But if you look at ESP's website, even the lowest model LTD has the 21st/24th fret cutaway:

What's up with that one on the right with the 19th/22nd fret cutaway?
Is one like an older model or something? I've seen both styles used on websites talking about the same model.
The cutaway is deeper on the newer ones, it's the same on the SV as well.
