      My new guitars have finally arrived! The first two of their kind. I went ahead and doubled down lol. Thanks Jason at DCGL, and ESP Mod Dave R. for making this possible. 

      Congrats. Both look phenomenal. Did you specifically request the Tombstone cases?

      • BlackJack21

        Thanks, no I didn't that's how they came.

        Are you planning to keep the case or switch to a plain black? I know some people have mixed feelings on the tombstone (cough: Pap). I like them but mainly because I was also EST. in 1975 

      • BlackJack21

        I'm back and forth. I hated the gray interior initially, but after looking at the cases more closely, they are actually pretty nice. Also I don't think I want to mess with anything that came with them originally.

        I get what you are saying. I prefer the black interiors on both the Tombstones and the Black cases but I do think the grey interior looks better on the Tombstone than it does on the black case. Safe to say you it doesn't appear you are planning any mods but do you have any concerns running without a TRC? I looked online to see if dust can get in there and bind things up but couldn't find anything conclusive.

    • ESP 348

      Yeah, I am still not sold on the Tombstone case Big Daddy.

    • ESP 348

      Both Zombie guitars were ordered without the TRC BlackJack? Who's is the other guitar?

      Obviously for a personal order like yours as I am sure someone would question the TRC missing if this guitar were on display and for sale in a shop.

      • BlackJack21

        The custom order form for both of these guitars says to "match" Kirk's specs from his order, and it even had his order number on there, which is pretty cool. So I'm assuming yes since they both showed up without it, but I'm not 100% sure. ESP is sending me two truss-rod covers (because I asked) anyways so I'll have them. Both are mine at the moment. Debating on selling one but now that I have them both, and seeing how unbelievable they look in person, it's kinda hard to part with one lol. But I'm always open to offers since I have one to spare.

        If you're looking for a strap, your boys at Earth III are back under new ownership. They have your 2" black listed for 20 bones on Reverb.

      • BlackJack21

        Thanks, but I already have two of the KHS-3s for these.

        WHAT!!! You ordered two of them!

        That's awesome man, wish I could make an offer on it but I can't at this point in time.

        But I will send you a PM because I do have a question.

        holy crap I struggled to fork out for the price of the Levy ones. I suppose the price of these straps is nothing compared the guitars .

        Are both fretboards quite similar in look? The one on the right looks darker but I'm assuming just because of the lighting in the house at the time?

        How far out are the serials from each other if they were both inspected on the same day?

        Have you had a chance to enjoy them yet or is that a thing for the weekend?  

      • BlackJack21

        Haha yea I ordered these straps a while back before they sold out. Both fretboards are pretty similar but you're correct the one on the right is a shade darker. The serials aren't too far off either with a lot of the same numbers in there lol. They both weren't inspected on the same day, but were one day apart.

        Word. That's what I use on my KH-3.

        EDIT: My bad I was thinking of the KHS-2. That is what I use on my KH-3. The KHS-3 is the one model I do not own. Wasn't sure about the whole leather sliding adjustment. I have the KHS-4 on the KH-20 and have a KHS-1 set aside for a future guitar. I have a custom KHS-4 coming for the Demonology.

      • BlackJack21

        However, I did manage to order a few of the Earth III straps for my other guitars. Thanks.

    • ESPEXP

    • Nathan S.

      I'd say 2 White Zombies would make him a special customer .

      I did post the link to where it was only being limited to the Ltd range (unless there is more info officially released we haven't seen).

        Well I don't see what the 6 months comment has to do with anything in that case 

    • Lewis_08

      Awesome order! 

    • ESP 348

      I also noticed the darker fretobard on the guitar on the right, but I thought it was because of the lighting in the pic.

      Definitely keep that darker fretboard Zombie, if you are going to keep only one.
