My TGP brothers:

Here's a Japan custom shop I had made in 1991. Little unusual
as it has a strat selector and the skull and cross bones inlays - I think this was even before Kirk Hammet had his done!!! - My design was first I think?

She's still plays amazing and even though I have a loads of really good guitars - the build quality on this is about as good as I've seen. A really superb guitar and the sounds are great - lovely cleans and massive riffing. ESP are fantastic!!!!

ESPs don't get the love they deserve.
I had a Ron Wood tele for a while that was one of the best playing/sounding guitars I've ever owned (and I've had a couple!).
Finally sold it to my guitar teacher who wouldn't stop hounding me.

Kirk had his original skull and inlay guitar back in 88 or 89 (on the Justice tour, anyway).

I have a few early 90's ESP guitars, and they're wonderful. I also have a bunch from 2000+ that are great as well. I think they're easy to get used to after playing Gibsons for so long. My collection is a majority Gibson and ESP.

I had an M II (standard series) that I kick myself to this day for selling. I can only imagine how good the custom shop stuff is. Even some of the mid to upper line LTD stuff is great. And they really don't get enough love around here.

Wow, that is a very cool guitar for sure. I loved the horizon ESP model. Effortless to play.
