He's had one a few months with different inlays, I guess keeping it under wraps for this to come out. We'll see if he straps it on now.

They've really embraced the 7 string artists this year.

That's f***ing awesome Shane. Lots of new 7 strings too! I really like the Slayer special edition one, and I'm not even a huge slayer fan, just a sucker for the cool artwork.
Interesting to see Buz with ESP now, his sig looks a lot like the silverburst Ibanez RGA he had a while back, granted it didn't have a maple fret board but near enough. :lol:

Question about the Hanneman. I realise the control layout is the same as the old one however I am wondering what he toggle on the upper does. Is it a truckster style inactive toggle or what? Could Jeff not get one made with no hole upstairs?

Hard to tell with smaller pics but certainly a cool idea. Good to see ESP looking after a bigger audience with a more affordable anniversary models. I'm sure it'd be up there with your quoija in terms of quality.

*edit* on second look seems it might be about the green LTD standard, still cool though.

Lots of nice guitars this year and a surprisingly minimal number of non-signature ltds announced.
They've definitely catered well towards the death-djent-hard-core mob. The Alex Wade sig is very attractive and may have to be purchased :)

I take it more announcements will come in the ltd range Shano?

When i 1st saw Kirl playing his new guitar on the 30year anniversary vids on you tube i thought he was playing a esp potbelly but it looks a little different to a potbelly .
Love the new JH guitars

I don't know of anything else, they already had that range they released in Novemer or whenever it was that was all LTD standards. We have MusikMesse in March with more ESPs to be announced for export.

Hmm that Black-Aqua Eclipse may have just made my next to buy list after the Camo SV.

Definitely looks sexier than that reindeer Eclipse.

Otherwise very much what we in Export land have had for a while, apart from the newly released sig series models.
