ok so im thinking of getting the ESP F-404 but ive heard that the inlay has a tendency to pop out..... im also thinking about getting a Dean Demonator 4.... has anyone else had a problem with the inlay on the F-404?
Yeh i got one and one day the inlay just popped out hit me in the eye and now im registred blind.
Don't get one man they are dangerous.
I've only heard of that happening once. Yeah, it's a huge inlay with more possibility of being glued in improperly, but I seriously doubt that it is a common problem. I wouldn't let it scare you away from buying one if you like it.

Sounds to me like an excuse.

PLEASE dont get a demonator. IMO it looks like a rolled up cat turd.

I wish I had enough cash to get the 404 when I was buying. Though this is the first time I've ever heard about the inlay popping out though.
