    These do look nice, a totally different take on the "raised center" body. They also make a lot of crazy-looking signature models for the Japanese market. http://www.espguitars.co.jp/artist/

    A very awesome take on the Thunderbird... Way better than the new Nikki Sixx Schecter sig.

    The 3+1 headstock is a bit blech, but depending on the price, I'd totally play one of those in a metal band.

    I hope the price listed in yen will be less in US Dollars... Over 5 grand if you convert the 483,000 yen...

    The Japanese market ESP models are almost always expensive but they are of the highest quality. Masterbuilt custom shop quality that you have to admire regardless of the wacky shapes and colours some might come in.

    Hopefully this will make it to the Edwards line or the US LTD.

    It's all just a matter of esthetic taste. Personally, I think they're pretty effin' rad (especially the Marine Blue models), and I'm a die-hard Fender-man.

    Too bad it'd take a sizable lottery win for me to ever afford one. Five to six grand-plus?! Ouch!!

    The body isn't all that bad but I can't get past the headstock.
