Really wish that ESP would bring back the FX. I prefer the headstock on the FX over the EX. Just more aesthetically pleasing to see eye in my opinion. Plus the spalted maple was one gorgeous look! Hopefully one day ESP/LTD will bring back the FX!

Hi, thanks for your suggestion and comment. Those FX models were pretty cool for sure!

Guys, what is going on with your EX series? First of all the angle of the arm rest back is WAY too extreme. It’s super uncomfortable, not to mention it’s ugly.  Also the finishes. You can get black, or white. Seriously? So boring. Give us some maple tops with cool finishes like you do with the eclipse models. The lack of options, and that hideous upper horn contour has prevented me from buying an EX from you. I want to give you my money. Don’t you want my money? Don’t make me buy a Jackson or a solar. I’ll hate it, I’ll hate myself, and I’ll hate you for making me do it. GIVE THE EX SOME LOVE!!!

Hi, thanks for your comments and suggestions. Back in the day we did offer a few varieties of EX models but less options now. We do want you to buy and ESP of course so thanks for letting us know what you're looking for.

I have always been a huge fan of these guitars as a whole, but part of me wishes that Gibson would have never started that ridiculous lawsuit that ended the best version of this guitar in my opinion. To me, it was better looking when it was a James H. Style guitar that had the curves, not the sharp edges like the newer versions. I was born maybe half a decade after the lawsuit, so it’s likely that I would never be able to afford of be able to find one pre-lawsuit in good condition. It’s halfway depressing.

Todd B. ESP

Hey William, Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I'm sure you're not alone in thinking this! The Snakebyte is the closest thing to this and designed by James himself which is really cool.

what will I notice about the pickups on this one vs the pickups on the $749 version? (This is assuming that the pickups are what raises the price.)
