I have been very interested in Spear guitars recently due to the good reviews and good looks of their guitars. I currently have an ESP LTD EC-1000 in Vintage Honey Burst. It is worth around £750 and plays really nice but is just same old same old.... I checked out the spear website and although many of their guitars are very nice, two particular guitars took my fancy. The Gladius HT and The Claymore:

http://www.spearguitar.com/product/pro_1/NF-p/claymore.asp

They both have great specs and the Gladius comes with a set of EMG Hz's. I know some people will look at the claymore and think I am mentally deranged or something but I think it looks great. Plus it's spec is really good.

Someone check em out and tell me which you think is the more desirable in your opinion.

Cheers, Mx

The claymore or whatever is sweet looking, the other one is ugly as sin.

i'd go for the claymore, out of those choices. it's pretty interesting looking, the top is kind of iceman-esque and the bottom is typical strat shape-ish.

the claymore looks like the baby of a mockingbird and an iceman. I like the gladius better though the claymore looks kinda odd imo.

i think both are awesome looking. the first one is kinda generic looking, but the paint job is really awesome, as are the specs. IDK about the HZ's though

i'd go for the claymore. it looks incredible in my opinion. I've never seen or heard of them before though.

wow! so many replies in such a short time. I was expecting some "Spear guitars are **** get a ****in jackson you twat" hahaha. but so far so good. Yeah, I really like the look of the Claymore, really unique.

That Gladius looks brilliant
If I bought it, pickup swap, locking tuners, straplocks, looks like it'd be amazing.
I'm wondering how that neck would feel though.

JOEYEDIT: where are these sold? I'm interested now.

I like the finish on the Gladius, but the inlay is tacky, EMG Hzs are awful pickups and I'm not sure I'd trust the other pickups they give you the option of having.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Well I thought the claymore was neat until I saw that the upper part of the body extends out on the top of the neck,which I ****ing hate.I'd go with the gladius or one of their other models and do a pup swap and tuner upgrade.The green strat copy they have looks like it'd be pretty decent with a couple mods.
