Any input on some ESP signatures?

I've just got a few questions regarding some of the signature models. I like ESP mainly for the signatures, where as i like Ibanez for all the regular lines and a few signatures (JEM, E-Gen...if i ever could afford it, in particular)


Anyways, I'd like some input on the following artists signatures:
Michael Amott's signatures
Richard Z. Kruspe
Page Hamilton



Thanks in advance.

Re: Any input on some ESP signatures?

Would you rather have one correct answer or 71 "Uhh I dunno dude I don't play no them geetars".

Find the guitar you like regardless of price and rock on.

The Page Hamilton is the only one I'd consider, although it has a fugly headstock. I try to avoid artist sigs as much as possible - you end up paying more so the artist gets something out of the deal.

The Page isn't really anything like the Purple Horizon he's known for playing...

I've tried two of those, but I really dont like em looks wise or playability wise.

The only one I would ever consider is Kiko Loureiro's.

Re: Any input on some ESP signatures?

I've played that one too, it is freakin' sweet! But the extra frettage i find really unnecessary. Plus for me the fact that it has his name literally on the neck is a big turn off. I wouldnt play a signature guitar as is, but when the guy's name is inlaid into the fretboard...

I have a KH2 and the quality is good. I can't tell you anything about the models you specifically are interested in.

The ESP signature axes are fair at best. They do make a really nice guitar overall (the ESP series) but there are just TOO many LTD's and stuff like that. There's also a boatload of them out there - my God! I have never seen a company with more signature guitars...

Actually, I think there are probably twice as many ESP signatures in Japan. Actually kind of neat to go on the Japanese ESP site and see the other models they make, some are just really strange (I can't read Japanese, but one looks like they highlight the fact they tape down the pick-up switch, so you can't move it).

It isn't a surprise they have more though. ESP does a lot more non-standard signatures than a lot of other companies. There actually is a much more substantial difference than color and pick-ups for a lot of their signature guitars.
