Not at all like owning and LTD or LTD Elite. LTD are not Japanese made. LTD Elite are not really an LTD. And, I believe it does say ESP on the back of the headstock of the new E-II line. Besides, once everyone understands and get's used to the name change, then all will be well and no one should then confuse an LTD with an E-II.
BTW OP, who cares if the ESP logo is in a different font? You're not going to get the guitar because of the font for the logo? It doens't affect the playability or tone at all. No one who will hear you play will care or know what guitra you have or what font the logo is.
