If I was going to change the middle humbucker would it be better to use a neck or bridge pick up for the replacement? May be a silly question but I'm curious.

Carl N.

Hey David, currently these have a neck pickup installed in the middle position but you can replace this with any humbucker, would just depend on your tonal preferences.

A throw back to the 90s thank you for bringing it back esp/Ltd like bringing back my childhood. Can’t wait for you to bring back the sky blue. Here’s a Stephen Carpenter story. My 03 Silverado SS was stolen, cops recovered it the next day in pixley CA. The car was straight stripped, but the thief’s left me two things my child support receipts to my ex and a Stephen Carpenter signed ticket when I met him and seen him perform in Ventura. Thanks esp/ltd for giving us a guitar that represents the sound of my life, and Stephen thanks for everything bro.

Todd B. ESP

Hey Capt, thanks for sharing that story with us. Glad to hear there was something positive out of your truck getting stolen!

Here is a photo of Chino playing what I assume is the guitar posted earlier at Bottom of the Hill (SF) with Team Sleep. Sadly this guitar was smashed in 2 the next night at the Cactus Club (SJ). Was hoping to play the SC-20 at Rock the House, but didn't see one and next years SC-20 should be sunburst.

Hey Eric, thanks for sharing that photo and story. Too bad that guitar got smashed!! We will be considering which color to release next for the SC-20, thanks for your suggestion.

Hi, are these still being made? I’m looking to buy one this summer/fall but many places are listing them as out of stock or limited supply, so I’m wondering if they’re limited edition/discontinued. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Aidan, These models are limited , but there is no limitation on the number produced. They are currently available but it's likely that we will not offer this model next year.

I'd KILL to own his sonic blue version of this!! 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Caleb, Thanks for letting us know. I remember that sonic blue version, it was really cool!

Craig L.

I second that. The sonic blue version is basically everyone's white whale. Todd make it happen! It's time for a mid year sonic blue option! It'll prob be cheaper to make

Todd B. ESP

Hey Craig, Sounds good to me! There are no mid year releases this year (other than the 400 series with metallic fade colors), but there is always next year.
