ESP custom shops are freaking amazing.

If you have an upwards of $4000 in cash, that is. Custom inlays make it even pricier.

Damn really so if i put a fret extension up to 24 frets, had an original floyd, (and it also gives the option of crossbone skull inlays cuz of the kh series and i dont think those are custom) would it really be that much i'de expect around $1500 maybe cuz its a cheap guitar that i showed and the specs aren't too insane.

Custom Shops usually are upwards of 3000 dollars, even if you are basing it off of a already existing model and adding the few changes that you are. IF you are going to spend that much money just save some and settle on an already existing ESP model or go all out on a custom to make it worth your while!!!

I asked schecter to make one of their existing models that goes for 699.99 into a sevenstring and add a floyrd rose and the quote was $3695. No changes... just those, the rest of the guitar was the same. You are getting better quality stuff, but i dont think its worth it unless you go balls out!

Its the craftmanship you pay for...not really the specs.

Well seeing as the bridge isnt meant for a tremolo system, you're looking at about $500 for the framework alone, plus about $80 for skull and crossbone inlays due to it being a mohogany neck. (mohogany's fragile and can split easier then alder)
The Original floyd is about $200 alone due to the new nut and black hardware.
You'll probably be shelling out double the price of the guitar.

And I'm not sure if LTD's can be custom.

You'll have to get all the specs again on the quote and it'll probably cost around $3000 - $5000.


EDIT: and about your comment above. I suggest you check out the guitar a little more. It already has 24 frets.

That makes sense because it takes more time for them to make custom models since its all by hand
plus they would have to rethink how its built because you wanted it in a 7 string version with a 7 string OFR

It would be cheaper to buy the guitar, have the inlay and routes done, then to have it made buy ESP custom shop.
