Wanted to double check that this is in fact a 24.75 in scale length? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi, yes it is in fact 24.75" scale.

Wow, really nice guitar! Love the color!  But why are the signature models so expensive? This one is nearly £500 more than the red Arrow 1000... :(

I was wondering that too. It looks to be because of the maple cap on the body and that it includes a case. It uses the Alexi case which is quite expensive.
