You know,this should be in the "Piss me off " thread,but I`ll vent here.
I`ve been looking at Jackson and ESP for a new guitar,even went as far as getting quotes on custom builds. Man they were both over 4grand for the features I wanted,hell I can get any of the George Lynch signature models from ESP, for the high 2 grands,WTF is up with that.!!!

I would go with the Red with the Maple fingerboard,I`ve always had a thing for the maple fingerboards,more an asthetic thing than sound. Ebony is a hard wood and it`s darker color lends itself to looking good for a guitar. But a maple board with a matching (body color)  headstock will always get my vote.
It would seem that ESP is overly proud of those George Lynch models also.  The custom shop is just high,so one of the premier series that go for around 3600. will be more inline of what I might go with,but then again,what the hell do I need with a guiatr that costs that much??
Let`s see.... get played once a month and set around in the case the rest of the tim in a dark closet. Maybe I should just drop this notion until a Phantom GT comes up somewhere!! I always liked those when they were new,so now that they`re un-obtanium,makes the pot even sweeter.

You got that bit right about "customer service," bro. I am sure there were many like us left scratching their heads as to their perceived attitutude problem. "Finished when it is finished" reminds me of the 3DRealms slogan for Duke Nukem IV (videogame nerds know what I mean!). Duke Nukem Forever has become an industry joke as it has FOREVER!! It was announced in 1997 and people are still waiting. Obviously, the KxK people never heard of this slogan tied to such a joke "protracted delivery schedule" videogame either.

That aside, what are your choice in options? While I actually like the red, scalloped frets, maple fingerboard, I think I'd be leaning more towards what KK actually plays now. Howse 'bout you? Go KK authentic or color of choice?

2399.99 for an introductory price,not bad,less than I thought it would be. Got the cash,but not gonna wait that potetial year to get as they say...".it`s done when it`s done", man those folks need a lesson in customer service! Their attitude has helped with my decision to not get one. 
Allthough I`m not a "V" guy,they are beautiful guitars and i would like to have one,so now it`s on to the ESP site for a George Lynch model I guess?

Never a big fan of the headstock on that one. Reminds me too much of Ripper-era that, again, isn't really my cup-o-tea.

Now were GLENN'S current Hamer(s) to go up for sale. I think I'd be selling plasma to get THAT!

Really? I thought you might like the mini V too. Ah, well...whatever floats your boat.

Maybe K.K had the new red Flying V done to replace the other red V he had...the one with the Ripper-era JP cross on the head.

You know, that mini V is probably my least fav guitar. Not that I would run were someone to offer it to me but I still marvel at the beautiful tiger-striping of this '84 Hamer as I do the sound and look of the Gibson V.

I would love to try one of those KxKs just to feel the scalloped fingerboard. Robo used to swear by them. Where HAS that fellow gotten off to, btw? I miss his guitar expertise.

OK...I admit that is a bit of a bad pic but I like the way the guitar looks in the KxK website. It reminds me of the mini-v guitar he had during the Painkiller era.

"Yeah" And Switch out them  "EMG'S"  With Some Passives
[guidogodoy] Friday, November 14, 2008 7:30:00 PM 
Whatcha' think? Bad picture or custom color. The KxK site shows that red to be quite brilliant.

Well, holy crap! They are out!

Too bad they don't give the option of moving the volume knob back to a normal position as KK did. Personally, I think I'd take the options that KK has: scalloped ebony fingerboard. White.
