Meh. Not much changed imo. The black flamed maple looks nice though.

I'll close the thread if I need to.

EDIT: also, there's rumors that the 401 series are made in Indonesia.

I like the "Clockwork Zombie" ones, the ribs on the Viper look badass. The Black Flamed top one is nice too.

the blood splattered V would have been SO COOL if only the headstock had the same pattern as the one in the custom shop does. God damn it

Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

The best news is that these are not ALL the new 2009 guitars :P

I hope they'll release some ESP Japan Artist signature models to the US but chances are they probably won't

"Rounding out the new graphics series models is the LTD Screaming Skull (based on a popular custom model)"

I have to say I'm rapidly going off ESP. They seem to be sacrificing actual quality components for fancy paintjobs. The drop in quality from the 2007 models to the 2008 was pretty significant but the prices remained the same. For shame ESP, for shame.

i wouldn't be purchasing it till much later on in the year if i did and if the 401's are made in indonesia i will be looking for a 500 series. unfortunately i live in a lame city and finding a 500 would be near impossible im sure.

if i can't then i'll look to the next closest ltd that is made in korea ^_^

Just because it's made in XXX area doesn't instantly make it bad / good (hint : made in america).


I just hope they manage to sell the floyd'ed V at a normal price.

The only thing they probably changed is production (Indonesia).
