Kamikaze?

Sure maybe it is because I grew up longing to own the colorful jems in my 1993 Ibanez catalog, but I love the ESP Kamikaze. Sold it years ago. With the price hikes I'll probly never get to own another, but what a cool looking guitar. Especially the neon green one! Anyone with me on this?

Re: Kamikaze?

Well, I'm not gonna say it will ever out-do a UVMC, or anything like that but yeah....I've got a thing for the Kami's.....The neon green ones are ok but the Kami 2 (blue,red,silver and white)...Thats the one I jones for. Thank God my good buddy has one. All I need to do is visit him and get my fix.

Re: Kamikaze?

I'll go with the original. Probably because it looked so cool with Lynch playing it for the solo in the "In My Dreams" video.

Re: Kamikaze?

The nut sure was wide on it, 1 and 3/4, whew! Like shred-classical or something. I think that is what finally drove me mad about it. Well that and the solid maple body making it weigh more than any Les Paul could dream of weighing hehe.

Yep--the Kamikaze 2!!! I played George's after a show in Nov '87 and loved it. Maybe it's because he just showed that axe to the world on that tour, or because George let me play his--it'll always be my favorite.

Kami is my first choice, then the skulls and snakes, but I could not afford both.
