I have the E-II model. I was wondering how is it any different?

I got one like this but it says E-II on the headstock

Carl N.

Hey W, hope you're enjoying it!

LTD for 2020? 

Carl N.

Hey Lukáš, no plans for this at the moment.

Lukáš K.

Hi Carl, thanks for the quick reply, that´s sad, I was looking for this guitar for a long time but buying a full blown ESP is too much for me to put on a instrument. 

Carl N.

Hey Lukáš, we did produce the Mystique in an E-II version previously, but waning interest in this model caused this to become discontinued.  Some of our dealers may have these on hand still.

Lukáš K.

So people wasn´t buying the E-II but you still make the ESP and people buy it? Maybe you should try to do something like a poll and ask people if they would want it, I know that you make this for Chavier Reyes from Animals as Leaders but I only do 6 string, and I believe that some people gathered some interest in this guitar over some youtube videos, I think this guitar is really stunning, it has unique shape, looks comfortable  and stunning, I like the bridge, and everything all over it, I´ve just recently found some Chinese guitar brand and they are making a guitar shaped similiar to this and people loves it. I think that people would rarely buy this in E-II model while you can buy the famous Horizon, Maverick or Eclipse, but for LTD I would grab one

Carl N.

All good points, thanks Lukáš!

Lukáš K.

Glad you like it Carl!

Hi Carlos, This model doesn't appear in the LTD line right now. The only similar model is the JR-608 signature model. It was designed using this shape.
