I can't even imagine how it feels playing that.

The base of the handle makes a reference to The Alfee which aparently is some kind of Japanese prog band.

It woudl feel great, play sitting down classical style, with your arm around the guitar. Its perfect, but how does it sound?

The word "retarded" comes to mind looking at that.

Imagine how utterly stupid you'd look if someone caught you playing it.

Is it really that much different from the Draco?

If you look real close, it's a custom ESP.

Did a little research tonight. It seems that The Alfee are kinda famous for their collection of guitars. I thought I'd share some of what I found. It puts the angel sword in perspective...

Here's a Youtube video of some clips showing their playing and some of the guitars. A couple interesting solos, but they're very Japanese.

The link below is a section of the ESP Japan site dedicated to their guitars. Interesting collection. There's a full section dedicated to the angel guitars that puts the sword into perspective.

I really don t like the ESP angel models, they remind me of church rock and stuff.... Not my kind of music.

The other one looks strange, but nice somehow. I would not like to play it but the right guitarist in the right band would be kickass with it smile.gif
