    They don’t give a shit either. Dealers bitch at them constantly about it, but they’re sticking to it.

    That being said about E-II, the LTD’s I’ve personally handled so far this year (probably like twenty of them) have been quite nice for the money.

    though E-II is a stupid-ass name, the guitars are great. my V-II is my favorite guitar, bar-none. excited to see what new E-II guitars show up.
    C'mon son.

    This is absolutely just me turning into a grumpy old man: the really plain LTDs and E-IIs look great, just like the classic ESPs did, but the gaudier ones just look silly.

    You mean this headstock?



    Edit: I was totally unclear here... I was kinda taking the piss and meant they should only offer the 'cockstock'.

    Yeah, I'm not dogging the quality of them. I've played a few and they are great. I just hate the stupid fucking name, especially since I can't filter more than one thing on Reverb. So I can search "ESP not:LTD" and I get a zillion E-IIs, and if I search "ESP not:E-II" I get 500 assholes selling their "ESP LTD".

    It's the same with searching PRS and trying to filter S2 and SE. Reverb not allowing multiple search exclusions makes me rage at the world.

    Set price on the search kigh to low... that puts the ESPs on top because they are insaneley stupid expensive.
    I have the power to make my evil take its course....

    Cockstock and F do not belong on Horizons, 6 in line and reverse 6 in line only. Anything else is false.
