You make it sound as though they are a new thing. They made loads of them back in the late 80's/early 90's I believe. Thats how Kirk Hammett came up with the idea for his guitar - he started off with an MII.
They are just as good as anything on the market I would say. For quality and all-around greatness, you cant go far wrong with a proper ESP.
I would look for an older model on THAT auction site we know, you will get it for cheaper too. And as I said - just as good as antyhing on the market.
