    NGD!

    I've been wanting an ESP for a long time, I love my LTD Snakebyte baritone, and my E-II Eclipse is awesome as well. I'm just that old weirdo that didn't care for their "re-branding" and I want ESP on the damn headstock, lol! I've had several of my favorite models on my Reverb watch list and nothing really clicked until I saw this one. The artwork isn't for everyone, but I love it and it's extremely well done. The reverse headstock is always a win in my bookThe serial number indicates the it was made in the ESP Japan custom shop in August of 2007. After question time with the seller we went back and forth a bit on price and I ended up pulling the trigger. This thing is in amazing condition, no chips anywhere, a tiny dent by the tone control that's barely noticeable and a little buckle rash on the back. For me a Floyd Rose has been one of the most comfortable even though I rarely, if ever, use the bar. I stopped getting FR guitars years ago because I absolutely hate setting them up and this one is no less of a pain in the ass, lol. It came set up for E standard but I had to go through it and set it up with 11-56 strings for C standard. Sooo worth it, this thing is a fucking beast I've been doing some research trying to figure out who did the artwork and when I took the back cover off to work on the FR I found the Sims Custom Shop logo stamped in the cavity, guess that question's answered.

          Congrats! That's a serious beaut! Now, use that bad boy to make some more SAW dust!

          Edit: Had to DL that body shot and turn it so I could really appreciate the artwork. Love it!

                  My first thought on the graphic was "They killed my wife and my baby...with hopes to enslave me"

                                Thanks all! I finally got spend some time playing it this weekend and what a fucking beast! The past week has been a reminder of my love/hate relationship with Floyd Rose bridges, lol! But damn it's comfortable under my right hand Not that it bothers me, but I find it odd they would put an EMG 81 in the neck position as well as the bridge. I rarely use the neck position so no big deal, just odd to me. Hat's off to the previous owners, this is a well maintained guitar and pics(or my lack of skill in taking them, lol!) just don't do the fretboard justice, it's freakin' gorgeous!

                                  I prefer the 81 to the 85 in the neck. Cuts better for solos.
