Mine came yesterday, and it is awesome. It feels 'quality' like my Japanese M-I's, and the satin finish feels like my Hanneman, maybe just a bit 'softer'. The steel frets are really fun; they feel much harder than nickel, and sound colder. Oil up that fretboard; it comes a little dry. The finish is great, and all of the lines are perfect. The glowing side markers are awesome. I love it; I would recommend getting one to anyone who is into neck-thru superstrats.

Oh, this is absolutely gorgeous.

Music Zoo said Korea, but this one came from Jakarta, but this one is a peach.  

The M-HT feels as heavy and solid as my Kiso Hanneman, my M-I Standard, and my E-II M-I's.  The satin finish feels just like my Hanneman.   Fit and finish are awesome.   Feel is great.  Frets seat well and are finely polished.  Bridge is smooth and sleek.   The press put the truss cover screw in just a smudge tight, but a quick de-burr with the Xacto and a slight hand-turn to back off the screw, and this guitar feels absolutely great.   I can't believe that I'm saying this, but it is on par with my other 6 ESP's from Japan.   It feels like a Japanese ESP M-I.   

This guitar is awesome, I am very pleased.   The wait was long, but the quality is definitely there.  

Domo arigato!

Would love to see these with a floyd rose.

On the UPS truck, and en route!

Very excited! 

Stay tuned.

Got mine last week. The pickup was mounted at an angle. It appeared as if whomever mounted it did not have the template straight. I promptly sent it back.  Pickup is perfectly straight on the replacement. Just need to get a proper setup done now.
