    The guy at ESP here (https://www.instagram.com/p/BvMaxMync-_/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link) mistakenly attributed the color name to a name I ordered the guitar under. I'll happily take the credit though. :)

    Body: Quilt Maple, White Limba
    Neck: 5 Piece Hard Maple, White Limba
    Nut: Bone
    Fingerboard: Ebony
    Inlay: Mother of Pearl, Recon Stone
    Side Dots: Luminlay SGM-23

    Niiiiice! Not sure that color is 'sakura' but I dig it. Often times shops with great woods like PRS PS will post in-progress pics and I want to scream, "no! stop there!", before they spray some strong color on top of the sanded-back basecoat. This looks a lot like that.
