ESP flew two contest winners to see Slayer and they have a picture of the new Gary Holt prototype ESP
Les Paul-style guitar.

You have to see the red and black multi ply binding up close, first of it's kind to my knowledge. SWEET!

I really like the Eclipse and got one myself too.
The Black and Red looks really awesome!

But i really have to say i love the Schecter Vs especially the Black Jack ATX.
They are just beautiful and great to play!

I´m glad that Gary is happy with his ESP but I loved to see the Schecters on him, they fit so well together :)

I have a Firebird and a strat. Too broke for another guitar! I'm tempted to sell the strat but I got it set up for my music. :mrgreen:

That firebird has really helped my playing. Starts are tough to play sometimes. I used to work out my arms to play it. I had the 11-48 strings on it.

My firebird is getting a mod for the bridge and tailpiece , so I'm stuck with the strat for 2 weeks. The mod is supposed to make it sustain and improve resonance by taking out the studs and put the bridge in almost direct contact with the guitar body.

Cool guitar s. I like SG sounds but not the look so I got the firebird. I played a 72 SG with the plastic black minibuckers that kicked ass.

I had a Gibson firebrand (les Paul shape) that was my favorite.

I gave it to a friend. He has an uncle who worked at Fender , so he could fix it for a lot less $. It was a 'rescue ' guitar.

The lex Talons V was not going into production, only two ever were made or will be made. Selling one, keeping one. Any interest let me know.

Gibson once made a Les Paul called a "black widow" that is very similar to Gary's new red Eclipse. I think the Eclipse looks better though! Plus that simple look with the 1 switch/knob. Tasty.

Looking nice. Are they arriving to music stores soon, or will they be like Fender's Dave Murray strat (only special order)?

The idea is great. The LTD one undercuts the price of the Gibson traditional w/Floyds, but the ESP one probably has better quality/materials (at an appropriate high price)?
No Sustainiacs?
