    Looks like they are finally rolling out. Anyone get one? Anyone gonna get one?

    EDIT: It's weird to me that the headstock and body are bound but not the neck. It would flow nicely, especially since the pickups are white too.

    Scale: 25.5"
    Body: Alder
    Top: Quilted Maple
    Neck: 3pc Maple
    Fingerboard: Ebony
    Radius: 14"
    Finish: Trans Purple
    Nut Width: 48MM
    Nut Type: Locking
    Neck Contour: Thin-U
    Frets: 24 Extra Jumbo
    Hardware Color: Black
    Strap Button: Schaller locking
    Tuners: Gotoh
    Bridge: Original Floyd Rose
    Pickups: DiMarzio Titan 7 set

    Such a beast! Not into the purple so much though...wish they'd do some other colors. Trans dark brown/dark green maybe? The lack of a bound neck is a little weird but it still looks cool. Love the no inlay board! Like the white pu's too.

    Looks super cool, but I can't get into the purple.

    I prefer the unbound neck for some reason.

    I was just joking earlier about how these were never coming out, but damn that looks good. I'm not a purple guy or even that much of a 7 guy, but I'd like a few minutes alone...

    Pretty rare that I see an ESP that makes me go, "Woah."

    That's one tasty looking guitar.

    WOW!!!! What a sexy guitar. Super clean. I love the blue undertone in the finish. Already have a purple guitar but I could use another .

    That top is weird - almost looks like it's out of focus in all the pics - can't decide if I like it or not. Love the color though.

    They must have had a thing for purple guitars this year as I see those purple silverburst eclipses rolling out as well.

    Don't forget the purple RG Prestige they've got up. I'm not complaining though. There's not enough purple guitars in the world.

    ESP knows how to do purple.
    The Limited Run of the Elipse in purple silverburst is quite nice too.

    ^ LP bursts need the teardrop shape IMHO. But the fade and colors look really well done.

    Little too purple for me, I think a purple sunburst like the ESP USA lines would better.
