    Too non traditional for me, but I can see where some metal guys could LOVE it.

    Love the red binding, hate the headstock inlay.
    Gary Holts signature LTD looks better IMHO, and I guess thats where Gibson cop... errr drew inspiration for this model. And I say that as a Gibson fanboy.

    I find this a much better and really aggressive LP. No bling & blong, not pretending to be a custom, but really badass looking Gibson;

    The white neck binding kindof ruins it for me. That and the white inlays on the neck yet red on the headstock. Just feels too pieced together

    Thats just red tinted nitro, had they sprayed the board you would have red block inlays, red tinted nitro on black just shows black.

    Then maybe they should have finished the job and sprayed that neck.. I love the black customs for the binding outlines on nearly the whole guitar. I think that cosmeticly ESP did it right.

    Reminds me of the Washburn guitars of the early 80's.
