Just a quick question - I know the more rounded angles of the MX220 copied the shame of the Gibson Explorer (specifically the '84), but did the later MX250, with it's sharper, more acute, angles copy a Gibson shape, or was that ESP's idea/design?
Interesting, thanks! I hadn't realised the original 84's were the sharper shape, I thought they were the 220 shape. Still kicking myself for not buying a white Gibson '84 lefty when I had the chance some 8 or so year ago
And yes, I'd noticed the Epi 84 re-issue mimicked James' ESP model, in regard to the black hardware, EMG's and that control layout. Bit cheeky really since they issued a lawsuit against ESP for copying the Gibson's in the first place, then go and copy the ESP's
