It sounds weird, but they cut the maple into 3 pieces to make the neck stronger. Usually they'll reverse one of the pieces of maple so that the grain faces the other way. I guess this helps combat warping.......MORE »

It's legit. The screw version Floyd is an older model and may have been replaced along the way.  The "S" serial number may be a mistake.  A single "S" is usually the prefix for Custom Shop built guitars from the Sado......MORE »

I'd argue with your premise that those are the top three ESP Custom Shop KH guitars.  In fact, I'd say those are among the least desireable guitars as only one of those three are regularly played on stage, and even that is......MORE »
