    I didn't have to pay for my bowl of fuck all which is why I can let you have some, but we did have to pay for the pressing of the discs. ;)

    Oh, come OOooon - that guitar only has 6 strings!! You know you want the ESP 8 string. I'll even donate some fingers to give you extra reach!! Besides, I think it's time that Lord did a song in F# to get some one-upmanship going with Type O-

    :D

    Edit: The big question is.... will they give you a complimentary George Lynch signature edition?!?!?!?

    Someone just got shit out of luck then, didn't he? :p

    But seriously, if you DO want one of those and you can save up a bit, talk to Shane at bMusic (Mr. KellyStar here on the forums) and he'll do you a great deal. :)

    One day! :)

    Because I've just started with ESP I only get a great deal buying their stuff (how much I can't say, but it's pretty damn good ;)), but even with my deal getting a custom made will still cost me a FUCKLOAD of money, so I'm currently doing some saving up now for when I'm in Japan next talking to the custom shop. :)

    I love my ESPs man, grats on the choice. They're my first choice considering I don't feel like ordering Caparisons from Japan, though I really want one of those. A friend went through the effort of getting one and fuck does it ever play like a dream.

    Yeah, pretty much.

    Specifically, the rear pickup is actually half corroded, the bridge is a Kahler 2600 "Steeler" bridge with replaced "long screws" on the back which were never a perfect fit, but better than the original ones that were in there, so over time the screws started to be a problem, the blocks that wedged the strings between the saddles and the long screws were starting to crack, the bridge itself was starting to corrode, etc. and apart from that it really needs a fret-job.

    Each thing alone isn't a great deal of money but to do a new pickup and good fret-job would be $300 or more each, and forgetting the fact that I couldn't get a Kahler 2600 bridge anymore (Kahler went out of business and then came back into business but are only making their "classic" roller style bridges, not their Floyd Rose style ones like the 2600 was), it would cost $400 to replace the bridge with a straight swap with another Kahler, or LOTS more to retrofit the guitar with a Floyd so I have current hardware that's easy to replace once it starts to get worn again. In short, I added up it was something like $1200 or more to get the guitar up to scratch, and it would be a real fuck around with both time and money to do it, so I decided to put my money where my mouth was and actually use the guitar brand I've been telling people to get for years.

    Speaking of, I saw some of the early pics of the custom switches and wiring that bMusic is doing for me and it's come up great! I should have it this week if all goes to plan! :D
