    okay, can someone explain to me any reason why ESP would be so ignorant?
    Those aren't Bodom's guitars...
    espguitars.net has is correct...but it just seems weird that the american site has Allu and Ale with guitars they don't own to my knowledge :err:

    It´s stupid, but those pics are just placed randomly.....
    So Alexi and Alexander don´t have anything to do with those specific guitars.
    What I think sucks, is that that´s the only spot on the site where Bodom is mensioned.

    I love how when no one in america could give a shit about Bodom the esp.com website completely neglected them (much like they do to the members of Blind Guardian, Rage, Symphony X, Edguy, Stratovarius, etc etc who endorse the company), but when MTV starts playing their music videos and mallgoths start buying their HCDR shirt at hot topic, they add them. :rolleyes:

    It´s because Alexi´s guitar looks too much like a Jackson Rhoads, and they don´t want to get sued by Jackson (or Fender actually....)

    which means in theory esp couldn't advertise anything, because all their guitars "look too much" like another company's guitars.... ?

    > if having 2 less frets limits you as a player, then you sucked to being with

    if you have to rant mindlessly about 24 fret guitars, you're a fucking moron to begin with.

    ESP guitars are way cool.
    My ESP and Jacksons are both quality. I would actually pick my ESP over my Jacko

    Hey Strapping Young Lad plays ESP^^ (well even LTD I think)

    But the Warrior looks better than the Explorer' and it's sock shaped headstock (at least for "old" models)

    My low-budget ESP LTD has taken 4 good years of abuse and it still kicks ass.

    Only real complaint is that I've managed to rub the paint off the hardware - I sweat a lot when I play.
