ESP/LTD Baritone

Does anyone know what the pricing structure for the new MHB400 baritone will be? It looks like a fantastic guitar, with real EMG's and the Earvana nut. I really want to try it out.

Check it out:

They are 599-699 for the 400 series depending on where you go and how much you deal. I have one on it's way. =)

That's not too bad. About the same as the MMM1. It's a toss up. I kinda like the ESP better though, for some reason.

The MMM1 feels like trash. It's looks like it's 3inches thick, weighs a ton, plays awful, and the one I played on sounded horrible. I tried running it through every amp in the store and couldn't get a sound I liked out of it other than a nice deep clean. The distortion was just plain bad and that's being nice. The ESP's have a shorter scale which is a lot easier on playing, they hold tune extremely well, and the newer ones have the earvana feature so they are in tune next to perfectly all across the board. The MHB weighs more than the VB as the MHB is solid Maple and has a little brighter attack to it. The bigger issue choosing between the 2 guitars to think about is more the VB hs a set neck and the MHB is neck thru. Other than that it's all in body style.
