    According to the official site, they're doing away with gloss necks on a lot of models. Thank GOD.

    Are you sure? All of the natural necks (besides one EII) all still have gloss over them sadly.

    Well, to be honest I looked at the new M models and they're both satin then made a huge leap through pure excitement, haha.

    Damn, that would be awesome if they got over glossing any necks.

    The new Steph is absolutely perfect IMO, definitely getting one. Anyone know how his signature fishmans are?

    Wouldn’t that be for the Fishman modes?

    Since it's just one pickup you only need one push/pull to switch between voices. If anything I'd rather have one volume (non push/pull) and turn that tone knob into a mini toggle for voice switching.

    Am I imagining that I saw an ESP USA 7-string MII with a pointy headstock? I thought I saw that added to the line up pages back, but it's not on the website.

    I don't think that existed. Only the EII version.

    I have the newer green sparkle SCT-607B,and it sounds relatively bright and has good clarity.The only problem was one of the voicings on middle pickup is super bassy,but...there's no middle pickup on the new guitar.

    I posted it on the ESP USA bookface page and the guy said they could make it happen. I'm not sure if he noticed the headstock or not though.

    Yeah I've noticed this myself. Would be interesting to see if there are fewer Exhibitions come NAMM. If so, I'd be super bummed, I love the Exhibition models, super neat stuff.

    So many times I've seen and played an ESP and though, "man, if this didn't have binding all over it, I would buy it in a heartbeat." Their M and some MH guitars are the closest thing to a Jackson soloist I've ever found.

    That USA M-I FR-DLX in lime burst is another case. Such a beautiful guitar, but the binding will drive me insane and eventually I'll have to offload it, just like every other time. I love some of their guitars, and am happy to see a few without binding, but I wish it was more. At least there's none of that tacky abalone anymore, though.

    ESP USA that really impressed me. I'm not usually into these extreme shapes but this one just touches me in all the right places.
