Beautiful guitar John and I have heard good things about them..BUT, I highly suggest you sit down with one. Your use to the ESP with a little bigger scale length and a 22 fret board has taken me a bit of getting use to.

It may also be a lot heavier than your current axe and the body style is designed more toward a Les Paul. Going from a strat body style guitar to a LP takes some getting use to. Trust me, I love this Agile that I have but I still find myself reaching for the Jackson.

For that kind of dough and a different style guitar, I would definitely feel it before I bought it. Just my opinion of course and good luck with whatever you decide to do bro!

Later,
steve

You might miss those last two frets. I know I did when I went from a 24 to a 22 fret neck. Why not the ESP EC1000....I think that's what it is. smile.gif

What don't you like about the floyd? If you don't use it that's cool. I didn't use the tremolo for the first 15 years I played. I HAVE to have one now. tongue.gif I have a ZR trem though....way easier to maintain than a floyd....much more stable too, at least IMO!!

I like that guitar bro! You just don't see many green guitars, so that is quite unique!

Ask them to let you sit with it for an hour or so and make a good decision based on how it feels to you. Also, what model MH do you have, 400? I know the 1000's have all that lavish binding..You going to sell it?

Or.....and probably more important......Justin Timberlake's dance moves and looks. I know you got the looks....I'd need to see a vid to evaluate the dance moves. Maybe you could post one in your MTP thread!!! I'm sure Jeff would be happy to evaluate as well tongue.gif laugh.gif

I`ve tried couple of the hardtails in a local store. Don`t remember if it was a Usa model, but is was quite expensive at least.

I think that the hardtails are some of Dean`s more nice looking guitars, and it is truly lovely to play at. You can achieve some great tones with it with the right amp/effects. Also that finish was quite uniqe..KILLER! biggrin.gif

And I`ve just changed from 24 to 22 frets as well. Cant say I miss them and particularly yet smile.gif

This one looks great! The carving and the flame top pretty much resemble the PRS Custom 22/24. Even the inlays are similar to the abalone birds found on the PRS.

I would definitely try one if I had the chance...
