Wow... I've been envious of some of the japanese ESP's for awhile now, but never bothered to check out their custom shop. Now that I have, I'm wondering if they've actually made these guitars, or whether they're just concepts.

Some of them are exceptional, especially the Horizon with the quilted fretboard and the F-series with the natural finish. Beautiful guitars.

Wow, a few of those just look sweet. The one with lightning on it just looks good...I'm also curious about the 36 fret model...

Anyone else think this would be really difficult to try and play comfortably?

I think they're more than likely just concepts, but amazing ones at that.

All of those guitars exist IRl

This may be a stupid question but what is the process of coloring a fretboard, like in this picture. Do they just paint it?

Does anyone else think the cutaway needs to be deeper so you can actually reach the top frets? I guess you'd have to tap or something.
Also, why is there a pickup (or at least a pickup cavity) under the neck?

EDIT: it has a switch, leading me to believe that it really is a pickup under the neck. CUCKING FRAZY

Oh, what's up with the seven string pups on a six string guitar?


Good pick (up), it's probably just the way it's mounted I reckon with no pickup ring as such it just looks a whole more cleaner.

yeah its true that anything you want ESPs custom shop will make for you, sort liek Jackson back in the day. theres one artist whos got his carved to look like an angel and the wing stretches over to the headstock.

it may be a reason why they seem to aquire alot of artists on their roster because they will make stuff that some other companies could be abit sketchy on
