    I like it, it reminds me of a Guild somewhat.

    I dig the body style, but that headstock is a deal-breaker.

    Not enough strings or frets for me, but they look pretty good.

    Not quite for me, but I appreciate ESP taking the initiative to produce a different style.

    I like the look a lot, but I'd worry about the long reach to the low frets.

    It's so ugly! I want one. Does it come in a 5er?

    Yeah, I love the looks of Tbirdish basses but for me a bass needs an upper horn that reaches at least almost to the 12th fret to be comfortable to play.

    Not enough to put down my own $ on it, even as a decades long ESP fan. :eyebrow:

    I think someone's gonna have to give me one of these just so I can make sure I'm truly disgusted by it! :)

    Very reminiscent of the old Gibson RD body style.

    Yeah saw the price, I'm out. I wouldn't pay a grand for it, much less 4K

    I saw them on some music site... maybe Sweetwater? They had them at $2k. It's a little beyond what I would expect people to pay for an ESP. $1200 is more what I was expecting.
