Shit! $3,999 Your only other hope might be Ebay. Someone might have bought one and now needs the cash, but that would be a rare event. I guess if you want ESP then you got to have it, but I would really look else where before I let ESP rape me. $3,999 is a bit damn much for guitar with those specs.

I still think thats too much but a little better that 4g. If theres a local music store that carries ESP i m sure they could order one but that may take a very long time.

You like that model more than the RR? I noticed that the bottom wing is slightly larger than the RR's. for 3,999 i'd get a ran

haha i was waiting for someone to say that. I played the LTD version and I also noticed that the bottom wing is slightly larger but it basically feels just like any RR especially since your standing most of the time (at least i hope so with a v). It was a pretty nice guitar but signature guitars always cost way more than they need to. You could look into a jackson RR just cuz that would be waaaaaaay easier to find, or you could always get a ran......

i was always wondering if that was the suggested price for that guitar, or if it was just WAAAY overpriced for the ESP website. Shocked me when i saw that $4000 price tag.

Wow! I bought a $300 guitar that has nearly all these specs. You had better be retarded if you plan on paying more than 1,500 USD for a guitar.

There is absolutely no reason to spend that much. Plus COB is overrated and why would you want someone elses guitar? Just get an RR1 or a Ran.

The LTD model is $3000 cheaper and has the exact same specs, just doesn't have a shiny ESP logo, has the LTD thing. Why would you pay $3000 extra for a logo?

RANA RANA RANA RANA RANA RANA RANA RANA RANRAN! RANRAN! ranran.... (batman theme)

[edit:] added
lets do some accounting! i'm rounding almost everything up.

floyd rose w/nut: $200
gotoh tuners: 50$
schaller straplocks 50$
emg hz4, pots, electronics, wiring: the shit on my shoe... just kidding! 100$
alder body wood: 20$
maple neck wood: 20$
ebony fretboard wood: 50$
inlay materials: 10$
binding: warmoth does it in amerika for 200$ for head and body
car paint: 50$
the service to cut and sand the wood and paint it.... in asia they'd probably do it for 200$
ASSembly: 100$
shipping: now if its an esp... 20$ seeing how theyre made in americatown, if its ltd, 200$ seeing how its made in asia.

with everything rounded up, it adds to... $1250 maximum.... now think.... is a little logo that says ESP really worth that extra $3000?

i'm sure you could give the specs and some pics to a custom guitar shop and they could make it for you for less than $4000. then all you'd be missing is the name.. but it would all be nicely hand-made and exactly right for you. and you'd save money too. well, i would be very surprised if it were more than that. i've seen custom shops make normal-types of guitars for significantly less than 4 grand.
