Will you guys be bringing back the Poly coated anytime soon? I really don't like the matte finish.  Also again as I have mentioned before I believe all guitars over $900 especially signature series should be coming with Stainless steel. 

Carl N.

Hey Robert, no plans at the moment and again thank you for your suggestion.

Dark Owl

what is the difrence between the ESP and the LTD modles

Carl N.

Hey Owl, there are many differences between the two but the biggest difference will be that the ESP Snakebyte will be made one at a time in Japan whereas the LTD version is produced at one of our overseas factories in a production line manner.  There are a lot of nuance differences between the two but the best way to compare the two will be to try them out at your local ESP dealer.

Tiko

Are those ltd locking tuners sold separately? I just got this guitar and i would like to put those locking tuners on my kh602

Carl N.

Hey Tiko, unfortunately we do not sell parts currently.  I'd recommend checking out Gotoh or Sperzel, these are the tuners used on our USA and Japanese models.

Tiko

Thanks carl
