    A lot of them were the same though, the old angels stuff etc. Maybe they got bored of presenting the same pieces over and over again.

    God DAMN, that is sexy. Finally going to be adding a semi-hollow to my collection, I guess!

    Oh, and I'm surprised by how much I like the look of the pointy headstock on the Viper. Wouldn't work on a regular SG, but something about the offset horns of the Viper makes it work IMO.

    I didn't realize that the E-II Eclipse in Black Natural Burst is full-thickness. According to the ESP rep shown here:

    Buzzkill. Am I the only one who prefers the regular thickness Eclipses? I can't be, right?

    Hmmm, I liked my FT Eclipse, it sounded great. My regular Eclipse played felt closer to the rest of the Standard Series though. Not sure I have a preference really. I think it’s cool to see some variation in them now. I love that finish though, so I could understand being bummed that they don’t offer both styles in it.

    Kind of odd they decide to announce USA Vipers and Vs after they came out in NAMM 2018. Guess it’s because they flat out ignored the USA line in promoting them at the last show.

    Still has tummy cut too though. Best of both worlds.

    Good point, belly cut and has the nice neck joint, maybe I don't really care about the thickness:

    diamond plate guitars need more love, they always looked so good when paired with explorers/Vs

    I think just about all of those were protos for NAMM, May seems a pretty normal time for the new line to start shipping out.

    I see them on Thomann (European retailer) arriving in 4-5 weeks. Europe gets stuff quite late, so expect within that time.

    I'm with you. I have 2 Horizons.. one thick, one thin and although they are both awesome guitars, I wish they were both thin. I'm done with thick guitars completely.

    It depends. Like, if it's full-thickness but still light, I can deal. I do love the feeling of a full-thickness guitar... Just not the weight. :lol:

    EDIT: That's why I like my LTD AS-1. For being so thick, it's... actually not that heavy.

    Play Vs, and then you don't care about thickness ^^

    I had an Aria Flying V for the longest time. But I find the V shape doesn't fit me.

    No, it's just that the shape itself doesn't hinder your strumming arm the way a strat or LP do, so guitar thickness becomes much less of a factor. Same goes for explorers.

    Strats and Les Pauls don't hinder my strumming any more than V's or Explorers. Body thickness doesn't bother me at all. Weight does.
