Not all my cup of tea, but some of the most interesting designs I've seen in years.

I almost like this one because it has a separate control plate. I always thought not having one was the Strat's glaring flaws. But they need a better control plate, without the jack on it IMO. It looks like all they did was use a Jazz Bass control plate, when they should have designed something that fit the Strat shape better., and kept the separate Strat jack plate.

What Edward website are you looking at? All I have bookmarked is this one: http://www.espguitars.co.jp/edwards/ which still has all the cool stuff they sold before (as far as I know)

Those are all ESP CS guitars (BIG $$$). The first one actually lights up (the cross part anyway). :D

The third pic (reversefirebird bass thing) was built for the bassist of kagrra, interestingly enough the guitarist of that band helped build his own signature guitar, you can fund videos of them building it on youtube if you search for "esp custom".


Last one's designed to look like a shark, I presume? I like.


Its a bass version of the gretsch billy-bo.

They did seem a lot more ESPish.

ESP/LTD (non Custom) has some interesting things coming up this year.

I hope they move towards building more traditionally styled instruments. I'd like to support a company not owned by FMIC or Gibson. And Reverend guitars might be good but I keep looking at their website thinking... ok, now build something that isn't ugly.
