:lol: Why not have them naked instead? THEN I might consider getting one. Oh that's right the EV kinda ruined the whole thing though

Does that mean a Japanese citizen can still order a ESP S-II?

In Japan = a model never really end, because you can always place a special order for one of them. Sometimes ESP stores make a special run 1 time in a year.

S-I I believe is the only Sugizo Eclipse available for regular custom order. If it's available from Sugizo range it's available for export also.

The Karyu is pretty sick! Probably could switch out the dummy knob for a kill switch or something.

The ZERO (D'espairs Ray) bass is pretty sick as well.

Looks like it. Must be a stain or something. The Japanese seem to not have a problem with coloring fret boards as evidenced by Mana's white guitar and Ken's (from L~arc en Ciel) red Fernandes.

I really don't like the look of weird coloured fretboards.

Can we order the Karyu model from you, Shane? If so, how much would it be (besides a long term investment)?

i love the white one. i would drill a hole for a switch at the usual LP position right in the center of that little circle it has in that place and i would put another pot in the existing switch position. that would be a dream.
i play a megafeth style..really heavy with alot of squeals and deadened/muffing chords and it was awesome.

and the knot in the back adds caractor...i even have a proper custom here with 4 knots on the front that will also blow any other custom guitar away for the purpose its been made for..

Love the body on Karyu's, totally not digging that headstock though.
