As a lefty, I have been dreaming about this guitars for a long time. First the Gibsons, then the LTDs. Now they are reproducing some lefty versions for my luck. But why it always has to be 24.75 scale? Downtuning would be problematic...

This is my dream guitar. It is the most sexy thing ever. Surely riffing on this beast will get the girls

Really wish ESP would bring back the FX, that is my favorite version of this guitar. Especially in different colors rather than Black/White/PBS/SM...like Reds, Greys/silvers, Blues...I just really love the headstock on the FX, it was so unique looking. But alas, ESP will probably never bring back the FX sadly.
