Hey everyone. Skittles here. I've noticed a really fucking awesome guitar around called the ESP Angel Sword. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a video of it in action?

Some pics:




More pics: Click it.

Would be kick-ass to play.

Also, 5 points to whoever can tell me how to tune it. (I already know how, but do you?)

That looks like it would be a bitch to play, especially sitting down.

Release the locking nuts and use the silver Steinberger pegs behind the bridge.

... Okay, so I didn't think about releasing the nuts, but I knew where the pegs were.

Looks like it. But it looks ****ing amazing. You could slay a dragon and then play a wicked ass guitar solo.

And yeah, it looks like it should've been featured in the video for Dio's "Holy Diver."

What a terrible looking guitar. I can just imagine two pre pubescent kids each picking one of these up at guitar center and battling it out.

Or you know, one of your kids picking it up and deciding to slay a dog with it or something.

I think what im trying to say is that it looks like a toy, not a guitar.

I'm so glad skittles is here!

/sarcasm

Anyway, this guitar is old news, if you can't find it on the internet by using youtube or google (who are the same company anyway), then why would we be able to?

Epic Fail. Looks horrid, and the only purpose I see for it is to hang it above your chimney........and hopefully it will catch fire someday and you can take a pic of it when its half ablaze for future reminescence.

Out of sheer curiosity I looked up the Xiphos because I didn't recognize the name. Jesus, it's like a preschooler went to town on a Razorback template with a pair of scissors. I'd rather have the Angel Sword. Some guitar shapes, I will never understand their appeal. Different strokes I suppose.
#21
eh. i think it looks pretty cool. I like things that are out there. Definitely a head turner if nothing else. I guarantee the price is ridiculous though
#22
It looks cool. Relax everybody. Just because it doesn't look like a strat or a les paul doesn't mean people can't like it. Y'all gotta chill and admit that it is kinda cool looking.

I named my guitar after my GF once... It was tempremental, the neck was too fat, and I couldn't turn down the volume, just like her...
#23
I would play that thing in a heartbeat. Only if I tuned it down to like G standard though. XD Not even G standard, something ridiculous like GCGBDE. A ridiculous tuning for a ridiculous guitar. I mean ridiculous in the positive sense, however. XD

It's not cool looking though. It looks retarded and anybody playing it will look like the worst kind of D&D loving nerd around. It looks like the sort of guitar played by people who own t-shirts with pictures of wolves printed on them.

Precisely; V shapes, Xiphos, Iceman, are all different from LP's and Strats and are loved by many, but this is.......just fugly!

No, it's a fact that anyone who plays a guitar shaped like a sword with angel wings is going to keep their virginity in tact for many years to come.

Apart from the fact that it's an ESP custom made for a japanese visual kei guitarist... he probably gets more pussy than 99% of this forum put together. But you know, apart from that you're totally right.

The guitar is not only ass-ugly(my opinion), but I can tell by looking at it that its rather impractical for your standard guitar player (fact)

If it were infact practical, im sure that TS could of originally found a video of it in action.
Needless to say, such a video has not been produced by this thread, or else we would all be making fun of the douchebag playing it.

The sweeping generalizations that you can label a person as a douchebag just by the kind of guitar he's playing just goes to show how immature you are.

No doubt, I think it's fucking horrible as well but to say that only teenage virgins play it when it is in fact the custom guitar of a horrifically successful Japanese guitarist is just wrong.

Oh right, and you can't make a generalization about someone who is obviously playing D&D or somebody that listens to Justin Bieber either without being immature right?

Didn't mean to offend you or anything man, if you like the guitar so much by all means I think you should buy it, maybe you can post a video of you playing it for us?

Wait... What's wrong with D&D?

Also, on topic, I wouldn't pay for the guitar, but I'd play it, for sure.

I was contemplating how to reply to that guy, but I think this is 'nuff said.

I don't play D&D, and I don't like the guitar either, but I'm not going to rain hate or even think twice, really, about people who do. Looks like someone has some insecurity issues to me...
