    ESP has a lot going on for 2021. Rocka might be happy with the snow white variants and moar Evertunes.. Kind of tasty:
  2. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Having ummed and ahhed over a scalloped guitar for years (largely for doing The Yng Thyng), I have finally taken the plunge. This reversed headstock is cooler in my book than the big Fender one on his current models. Also, I have have a proper 22nd fret, without the hassle of getting one added...

    Spotted this vintage ad on Reverb. I've been looking at it every day trying to figure out exactly what exactly is going on here and can't. Thoughts?

    Max Norman had the best job in the world that day. Fun Fact: Did you guys know that guitar body was completely made out of Quilt Maple and a Flamed Maple neck?

    First off... Little did I know, 5 years later... :lol: Holy fuck the ESP Custom shop is no joke. This thing is magnificent. Hands down THE best guitar I have ever played. Maple neck, board and body. The fretwork and inlay work is absolutely immaculate. Pickups are the same as my other...

    Before I even type anything, just look at this: I've wanted an ESP ever since I got into Metallica. And I've had plenty of LTDs, but ever timey I had the money to get an ESP, something would always come up. And over the past couple years, I got less into playing guitar and more into drinking...

    So I had no idea Lynch was 64 years old, cranking out albums like crazy and sounding good as ever with a Marshall and a Parker Amp. Robert Mason in Lynch Mob is such a giant bonus. Apparently Lynch's new band features: Jeff Pilson, **** Brown, and Robert Mason called: "The End: Machine."...

    $300 shipped! Duncan Black Winter in the bridge, Stagmag in the neck. Tone pot is a push/pull coil tap yet the tone knob is eliminated otherwise. Volume knob is a bornes and the switch was upgraded as well but I can't remember what I used. The control cavity has also been shielded well. :yesway...

    Considering purchasing a new ESP guitar. Asking here before calling a retailer in hopes of getting a "different" perspective. Looking at the following models: M-400 M-1000 M-II Series I have 2 questions: Practically speaking, what is the difference? How do the Kirk Hammett models fit in...

    I have an Ibanez RG652FX. I'd intended to get an ESP LTD H-401, but ended up with the Ibanez. No regrets. But now I'm GASing for the ESP again. I'm curious...what do folks think would be the differences between the two - sonics, build quality, etc.? Both are hardtail, but they use different...

    That satin purple is sexy.
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    :indeed: There is nothing I don't like about this guitar. If they are easily available (as ESPs go in the UK) I can see me owning one in the next year or so.
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hey guys. I grabbed this cool ESP Mirage Deluxe the other day. Its like 87,88, something like that. They only did the Jackson style headstock on these from 87 to 90 before the law suit apparently. Came with a Duncan Distortion in the bridge and a Screamin' Demon in the neck and it sounds thick...

    I still I can't believe I was able to purchase one. It's a ESP Kiko Loureiro Model. :) One of Six sent to the U.S at DrumCity GuitarLand. They were only released in European and Japanese markets (apparently only so many too). I have a video of me playing it for the first time the day...
