    Dude you gots to be kidding me right? :)

    I remember seeing that on the ESP japanese customs site. But is it even possible to play that? Fretboards look scalloped from the pics, but it could be just the wood colour.

    Wacky guitar!

    That's pretty amazing work. That would have been a very difficult guitar to build. Very nice craftsmanship. If you dig it, I would say go for it. That is the sort of guitar that could become a players trademark. Remember Prince's purple Male/Female unity . . . whatever in the heck that symbol was . . . guitar he had?

    Smash Mouth said it best, "Only shooting stars break the mold." If you want to be like everyone else, that's all you'll ever be.

    Hmm, top gtr doesn't appear to have a pup. Maybe a piezo in the bridge?

    Gonna be hard to find a case for that thing.

    It's an ESP? Weren't some of their crazy sculpture guitars made from something other than wood? Is that wood?

    If it's wood...I don't care how absurd the prospect of owning / playing that is--it's amazing work.

    That's intense.

    No, not for the bar gig --- but what a work of art. If it plays well too, double cool. I wish I could see that in a piece (several pieces?) of wood.

    It'd be a nice conversation piece up on the wall.

    not impressed, no function over form. what some are claiming as a work of art to me imho is not functional therefore of no use or intelegent meaning.


    i saw it sometime ago on ed romans site and thought it looked like really gay trim pieces off a fancy mirrer ordoor trim.not impressed with the prs dragon cosmetics as it has nothing to do with making the guitar play or sound any better and costs more than the guitar itself. rather spend the extra money on old growth figured mahogony and wicked figured brazillian.:NUTS
