Roope never actually uses his esp, not that I've seen anyways. His jacksons have the j50bc's in them. And alexi got a je1000 installed in his esp.

Wow.. What the hell were they thinking when they designed those guitars?!

As far as ordering the Japanese sig models goes, it gets really really expensive fast because they're already around like $2000 I think and then you have to deal with the shipping and taxes.

I think Alexi has installed some kind of gainboosters into his ESPs. And yes, his Jacksons had Jackson pickups with active electronics.

That's not right, in the picture on that site it's an H4 (cuz the logo is too big to be an 81 or 85). Check out the actual ESP site dude, it says H4, it is not a question, it's a fact. I've got a small poster of Alexi using his white ESP and it's got an H4. The site you provided is some knockoff site trying to jip you.

I know as a fact, seen with my own eyes, that Alexi has a custom ESP with a EMG-81... in a pic and on the guitar shop wall with 10 don't touch-signs... might be that he has more signature models? cuz there is a ESP RV-350 AL (AL=Alexi Laiho) AND a ESP Alexi Laiho. There's a difference of about 200 . They're identical except the emg81-version is cheaper. Might be that the emg81-version is old, and replaced with a HZ. It seems that you can't get the active-version anywhere anymore?

well, I couldn't care less what the guy has... but believe it or not.

btw, he doesn't have gainboosters.

It isn't dude, look at the logo, it's too big. Check out all the live pics of Alexi on the internet. He hasn't been playing ESPs that long either, so there hasn't been much time to switch around a bunch of different versions.

Alexi Laiho ESP

Alexi Laiho got 3 signature models. He got two RV-350 AL Black & White and a RV-398 AL Black.

Here you can see them... (These pictures has actually been taken in ESP when finishing the guitars to Alexi. I've noticed that the 350 guitars has a stomach cutout, but not the 398. Maby he forgot to tell them or something ?)

http://www.guitarsatbmusic.com.au/e...rigs/index4.htm

The specifications can be found here...

The RV-350 AL
Black with Yellow Stripe, "Arrow"
White with Black Pin Stripe, "Schythe"
http://www.bmusic.com.au/prod3309.htm

And my favourite....

And the RV-398 AL
Black with Luminous Pin Stripe, reverse "Sawtooth"
The fact of this guitar is that the inlays and stripes are Luminous.
Alexi only uses this guitar on 2 songs, Sixpounder and Angels Don't Kill when he plays with DropC. The reason for having a guitar just for that is that the Tremolo System needs to get configured in any tunechanging.
http://www.bmusic.com.au/prod3996.htm

The prices that you see on the page is in Australian $. If you are thinking about buying it (Im buying it ) i prefer you go to the closest musicstore and ask them for ordering. I did that and it turned out be much cheaper than ordering from bmusic or other places like the shit Soumi site that cant see the difference between a EMG-HZ-H4 and a EMG-81. I saw a Black RV-350 AL in eBay, and it turned out be a fake. The day after i saw the auction i found pictures on the guitar beeing copyied and had the same scratch on it like the one in eBay.

Otherwise the copy is succesfully but the price just doesnt fit into the real price.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...ssPageName=WDVW

Alexi uses his Black/Yellow when rehearsing and the white on stage. It happens that the Black/Yellow get to be seen on stage too. The Black is only for Sixpounder and Angels Don't Kill so far...

Alexi Rocks!
