Awesome collection PJM. Don't see many of those M's about. I've always liked the LP Customs, mostly because of Steve Jones.

Another Ebay special which I believe started life as a DeLuxe from the 70's as it takes a full size pickups and a maple neck. No idea what the pickups fitted are.

This standard has the flowerpot headstock motif and an ebony neck and the colour as stated by Gibson is Midnight Blue.

Finally here is the Gibson Les Paul Elegant Burst with mother of pearl neck inlays and an ebony fingerboard. I think this is the best looking of my guitars.

Wish I could play them ;-)

FJM that is an awesome collection. I'm lacking a LP but just don't have the cash to get the one Id want (early 70s black beauty)

It's a powerful device. It's one epic riffing machine and sounds brutal!

A free night out! I've just booked 2 tickets for the London show.

Right then lads. Thought I would revive this thread a bit with my review on the guitars I have and make some short comparisons between the 3 ESP's I currently own.

As I'm sure most who read this thread know each guitar that we own sound different in their own way.

http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/o...psyr87tket.jpg

Up first is the ESP Snakebyte signature series. I've only had this guitar for about 2 weeks but holy mother of god it's one bad arse motherf˙cker! It seriously does feel like it's going to explode the amp I have (may need to upgrade that!). Bashing out a few riffs with the bridge pickup selected it pushes what I thought a gruff ruff metal sound could be. I will have to start playing around with the tones on my multi FX pedal to hone it in a bit to get an even crisper distortion sound. Playing cleanly through the neck pick up changes this beast of a guitar totally. Goes from a riffing machine to a melodic fresh sounding guitar. I guess you could call this guitar the ultimate Jekyll and Hyde machine.

http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/o...pse7jdhtdp.jpg

Next up is my ESP Horizon Standard Series. A fantastic all rounder guitar yet sounds totally different to the Snakebyte. It reins in the ultra metal sound that the Snakebyte brings and produces what I would describe as a "cleaner" sound that's probably more suited to the Maidens and Van Halens of this world. Fantastic neck play and is ultra smooth. Comes with an original floyd rose trem system and it holds its tone like no other. Dive bombing on a natural harmonic is just heaven.

And finally the ESP Eclipse standard series pre lawsuit. This is the lightest in weight of the ESP's that I have but punches out a great tone. As for sound it feels and sounds like a happy medium of the Snakebyte and the Horizon which to me gives it it's own unique dynamic sound. The bridge pickup gives that crunch that I love and the neck gives me a very smooth tone that wouldn't go amiss in some jazz playing. The reason why I got this guitar in the first place was I wanted a Les Paul shaped guitar but I'm not a massive fan of the chunkiness of the necks or the pickups that come with it. Also I have a HUGE fan of ebony fretboards with jumbo frets so this guitar was absolutely spot on. Not to mention pre lawsuit so the cut of the guitar is almost a carbon copy of the Gibson compared to the ones the have on sale now.

So in essence 3 guitars from the same factory and the same company but all 3 are totally different in their own way. I don't think there is anyway in hell I would sell any of these! They are perfect for me and my style of play.

Oops I did it again. This will be my last guitar purchase for a long while now. But I've ALWAYS wanted a Randy Rhoads Jackson. Apparently I'll get it Thursday direct from California. As soon as I get it I'm just gonna go mental and crank everything to 11!

I've got one of these

This isn't mine - it's Sheryl Crows, but mine is the same year and colour (1993). It's got P100's on it apparently - I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I love it. No doubt someone will be along shortly to say p90's are better...
