is it possible to order KH-3 Spider Signature? or is there a chance for reproduction of this guitar ever again? 


And I KH-602 sparkle purple, looks amazing in person   

Carl N.

Hey Shawn, our custom shop has produced a few of these instruments in recent years.  You should inquire with your local/preferred ESP dealer for a quote on such a build.

Glad you enjoy the 602!

Since Kirk has a red sparkle ouiji now will their be a red sparkle release without the ouiji graphics because I’m not a big fan of the ouiji graphics?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Keaton, Thanks for your question. We are always considering which models we want to release next. Usually we will release something like Kirk is using, so if we were to do this most likely it would have the graphic. But nothing is set in stone and so anything is possible.
