ec-401FM

or



ec-500/ec-401


They have the EXACT same specs, just aesthetics now. Black is always sexy but the maple top is nice as well. Very similar price.

Personaly, I don't like a lot of things in ESP guitars: the bindgins, the inlays .. But I'd have to go with the flame top , very nice finish

Depends.

If the 500 is matte(sp?) [not shiny] get that.
I hate black guitars that shine and reflect all the light.
ruins it.
and matte is so sexy.

I woud say the first one, but that spike is abit strange-looking.


what spike? and the black is the shiny one.

i would go with the black one, although the hardward matches, colorwise, more closely to the flamed top. i personally would go with all white with black hardware. but i still say out of those two the all black

I like the first one more. The plain black one looks nice but IMO it would get really boring to look at after a while.

yeah Olympic white does look nice but I already have a white ibanez rg350 with black hardware
And I agree that the black could get boring after a while.

yah and black has the problem of get smudged very easily. you could go with a classy red flamed top if they have it, or just flat red i think esp/ltd make the flat im 95% certain they make red flamed. but i think im just tired of black guitars, i already have 3, well actually 4 if you count the bass. i want like a classy white base black hardware and bevels if the guitar has them. so that's probably where that came from. they do make red painted ec's right
