While ESP first got started in 1975 as a small repair shop in Tokyo, it was really toward the mid ‘80s when our guitars and basses grabbed the attention of players around the world. The LTD ’87 Series are faithful recreations of this set of instruments from ESP’s 1987 catalog. Based on the original ESP Mirage body shape, the LTD Mirage Deluxe '87 is a bolt-on shred machine with an alder body and three-piece extra thin U-shaped maple neck being made available in Pearl Pink, Turquoise and Rainbow Crackle finishes. These guitars feature a Floyd Rose 1000 bridge and a pickup set that includes a Seymour Duncan Distortion TB-6 (with original style bobbins and a push-pull control to split the coils) in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail single coil in the neck position.

the 87 series should be permanent run with different finishes/ or horizons being added

I really wish this were not an ultra thin U neck. I would like an LTD with active pickups, H-S config. and the normal "thin U" neck, bolt-on as an alternative to my Horizon or Eclipse NT/set neck. In fact, an ESP with similar specs to the Mayones' Blakkheim Gothic Setius or Regius bolt-on TOM models might work well. 

Hell no on reverse headstock BTW; it's aesthetically pleasing, but too much of a pain in the ass.
