Like the arctic metal guitars, it's very clean, and i love the EC-1000T CTM black cherry too.

Alex C.

Jeff K. Love all the new options. Any idea when these will be shipping? I saw on a previous post (2019 maybe) that the new line would be available to vendors around April, do you anticipate a similar date this year?

Jeff K.

Alex, it varies by model. However, many of these guitars will be available from your ESP dealer in January and February.  

Roger K.

Disappointed to not see any new colors in the Viper 1000

Mike W.

MAX-200 RPR MILITARY GREEN SATIN is an mean looking guitar, love it

Mika B.

Disappointed, why only a black sparrowhawk? This model was less successful than the pelham blue or the Military Green Sunburst. I want a sparrowhawk, but not black ... please make an artic sparrowhawk!

Astor

I was a big fan of the Pelham Blue and really like it in Black tbh... but man would that be cool in the Arctic Metal series!

John P.

I can’t wait until January/February when we’ll see these available. I’d like to get one of the first 100 of the EC Arctic Metallic! 

Michael D.

Snuck that TE-1000ET in at the end. I almost missed it. That's gonna be one hell of a guitar!

Carlos  C.

Maybe Blood Splatter finish at ltd or e-ll range? 

Also I'm a fan of gold Andromeda finish. I'm ready for the fase 3 at the beginning of 2021!!!!

Nathan M.

The M-4 Black Metal bass is mentioned as a 'slab' body. Is it a slab of alder? I love the classic headstock!

Still hoping to see an LTD model of Alexi Laiho's new purple signature guitar too! 

Astor

An alder slab body would be awesome and I’m definitely hoping to see an Alexi signature with that single coil!

WimVDH

I love the arctic white guitars. Are there any plans to make a 5-string arctic white bass? Learning bass is still on my bucketlist and I can't find any reason to buy another guitar (except that I just really want it).

Road King

I might pick up that new Phoenix since we'll probably not see another with no inlays.

Jerry Wraven

More color options for Stephen Carpenter models please! 

John P.

The only thing that bothers me about the Metal series is no fret markers. I know they are on the side, but would have been nice if you added them on the fret board face. I’m going to purchase the Arctic Metal and have my guitar guy install markers

They’re always side lumen inlays dots which can see in the dark!

Both:

BLACK METAL SERIES

ARCTIC METAL SERIES

does NOT have any fretboard inlays!

 

You’re welcome!

I understand it has side markers, I was stating It would have been nice to have fretboard markers as well or at least the option to have them.

You’re welcome!

The point of not having fret markers on electric guitars (and perhaps basses too) is that you are supposed to learn to play guitar, especially fast guitar playing, without having to look at the fret board.  You are supposed to know by the feel of the neck what position and string you are at.  This is a lot like learning to type.  People who type a lot never look at the keyboard and they are not expected to.  Rather they know by the “feel” of the keyboard what keys are underneath their fingertips at any one moment.
