Name this guitar!

I know it's not an Ibanez but I figured the guys here would probably know.

I simply can't figure out what axe this is in the first video on here...

At first I thought a Jackson or a Fender...or even a custom job. The pickguard holes are what really throw me off.

any ideas?

I thought that too. But the HSS configuration proves the body can't be one... That's what makes me think it's a custom combo of parts.

Re: Name this guitar!

It's an ESP the artist is Arkadiy Starodoub some Russian Fusion dude.
If you do a search on him, you can find pictures of the guitars. He plays ESP Customs.

Here he is at ESP Russia

Re: Name this guitar!

This guy doesn't look like a guitarist.
He looks like a lawyer, or a senator, or something like that.

Re: Name this guitar!

I want that guitar...

Any ideas on how I could get the parts on a budget? I figure I could find a body in that color somewhere, but a maple neck to fit might be a hard find.

DUDE!!!

It was hard enough figuring out who the guy and the what guitar were , now I have to help you get a guitar like his on a budget?

Just joking.

Also, he plays Laney amps.

Re: Name this guitar!

haha. Yeah I demand a lot from this forum.

Maybe I should start paying?

I've actually been looking for parts to do one like that for a while now. It seems that color finish is harder to find than you'd think.
