Default Custom Shop ESP

I'm looking to maybe get a custom shop EX. Anyone here ever ordered through them? The "Suggested Retail" quote seemed a little high at $5,250 for a pretty easily built guitar (nothing too crazy or what they don't already offer stock on other guitars). I know thats not what I'd actually pay but has anyone gone through them and could tell me what they got and what they did pay? Or if it was even worth it? Thanks.

Hey man, good to see you here (this is jb from hell from the duncan forum)!

The local ESP dealer told me that the discount from the retail price on Custom Shop stuff is about the same as production stuff, which is roughly 30%. By that rational, approx $3675.

That's a whole lotta cash for not much guitar. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it'd be nice, but $3,600 nice? Don't think so. I actually think I have found a luthier to build me my dream guitar (one of paul gilberts prototype ibanezs) so ESP may have to take the back seat to this one. Although there is something about a black hardware'd, hot pink, floyd rose'd EX that is very tempting...

Go to a dealer to confirm the pricing. It may be lower than that. And keep in mind, a production Gibby could run you way more than $3600

I can get explorers over here in Germany for just under 1k all day... I donīt think even a Gibson would need 2.6k worth if aftermarket work ;)

I forgot he was talking about Explorers. I was referring to some of the insanely overpriced Lesters.
