Was about to get a ESP Alexi Pink Sawtooth STD but guess wat... OUT OF STOCK. So now I'll have to w8 for the new stock coming in feb or march (after NAMM, for new models i guess). They said they're ordering the ESP Alexi Blacky STD and if I wanted pink I'd hav to tell them to order it. If I do so then I have to pay 30% in advance (which I'm fine with). Need to get the guitar before next gig during feb no idea if it'll reach in time.



Just want to know what ppl think. Blacky or Pink

I kinda want pink more because during a gig the blacky will just look like a normal black guitar. The black pinstripe just camouflages with the body... (especially for indoor gigs)

I live in Thailand right now. The pink stripe cost around $2300 (with discount) but im not sure about the price if I order it. Blacky would cost abit more than the pink stripe (cuz of the finish) probably 100 bucks more

Well hope u get ur guitar soon. I swear I was gonna kill someone yesterday because I waited so long for it Blacky does cost more cuz the finish has like glitter stuff on it and its inlay is black pearl.

I hope to get mines a week or 2 before my gig. Need time to get used to it and also get used to the string guages (which will be different from my current guitar)

oh damn just looked on the ESP site at blacky. those inlays are niice! i think the pink one is a little nicer though.

you might wanna check drumcityguitarland or sweetwater. when i first started asking about the c-1 classic, i couldnt get a brand new one through my local store and musicians fiend didnt have any, but those two sites were selling brand new ones for $499 US instead of the normal $799.

good luck getting one before your show.

I don't know why you're even thinking twice about this, pink is obviously the only viable option.

I'm getting the standard version not CS... apparently the prices you ppl have been seeing is absolute bs. The STD version for alexi is about $2300 (stated above alreadi), CS version is around $4000 i guess btw its USD

Yes sir indeed the ESP Japan site links to the CS model instead of the SS version. Anyway go for the pink man and you've seen the Bmusic shots of Blacky right? It's ****ing lovely.

They both look awesome I might end up having both one day. Only thing i don't like is probably the pinstripe blending with the body a lil bit too much for blacky (during gigs) otherwise it's awesome.

Normally I would hate any guitar with pink on it, but that is freakin awesome.

Pink looks cool, get it!
Panties 'round your knees
With your ass in debris
Doin' dat grind with a push and squeeze
Tied up, tied down, up against the wall
Be my rubbermade baby
An' we can do it all

My way - your way
Anything goes tonight
