beautiful looking V
I find this one ironic though, as Dirk from Edguy ended up leaving ESP and going to Gibson because ESP wouldn't make him pretty much this exact guitar. I'm guessing it was for legal reasons dating back to ye olde lawsuit.

Out of curiosity - why custom order and not go with the Navigator V?

Interesting havin the logo on the truss rod cover rather than the headstock itself.

Likely more than a Gibson 8-) Although, I don't know what Gibson custom shop would charge

So it seems that ESP are a little less apprehensive about still making the Gibson V shape as opposed to the Explorer shape these days - judging from Hermz' axe and now this one?

Maybe they think that Gibson couldn't find a buck to sue them anyway.

Surely they can scrape together the cash, what with all the sales of their Robot guitars and Jonas Brothers Melody Makers and such?!?

Maybe they should spend that cash on getting a bloke to stand at the end of the production line. That might slow down the customer hemorrhage more than anything else!

In the end they could just pull a Fender and buy the company out

I had Octoban once, it was kind of like calamari but a bit chewier.
