So how long before they snag Jaymz?? The old regime burned that bridge pretty hard but I can see Cesar working pretty hard to get him in.
The scale length difference between 24.75" and 25.5" is pretty small. I'll note having played his various signatures over the years, they're both not that thin in the neck. The ESP thin U feels a lot like a Les Paul with the 60's profile neck to my hands. I own both.
Not really. People in Kirk's age bracket have more disposable income than 20 year-olds. They are operating in Gibson's price point.
I would argue that Kirk is now more “known” (over say the past 4 or 5 years) for playing Greenie. He’s pictured with it constantly and by his own admission, he brings it everywhere he goes. It’s certainly the guitar I associate more with him now (as opposed to his old black ESP “Caution”).
Not at all. Metallica is one of the biggest bands in the world and their fans have $. And Kirk has played Gibsons since day one (before the ESPs).
