Must have been "bring your kids to work and help paint guitars day" at ESP.

I don't think the bullet holes, though nicely done, really add anything to the look.

I like it actually, different to the usual stuff. Doubt it will sell though except to hardcore fans

I have really grown to like Gus' new signature model, what are they worth Mr Shane? In ESP and LTD?

Like the control layout, shape, hardware. Not so keen on the finish, but then again, I am more reserved when it comes to guitar finishes in general.

Looks pretty good other than the black chrome hardware.

Saw the LTD version in Guitar World never knew there would be a proper ESP version

I had Octoban once, it was kind of like calamari but a bit chewier.
