ESP/Edwards Guitar Questions

Post by Monsta-Tone » Thu Dec 06, 2012 11:03 am

I have an Edwards Kiko Loureiro signature guitar.
I love the fretboard radius and the neck contour (back of neck).
I'm not so sure I like the scalloped fretboard (from the 12th to the 27th), and I certainly don't need 27 frets.
I also do not like the sound of a mini/stacked/rails humbucker in the neck. I want full humbucker tone!

Do any of you guys have experience with this guitar?
I am looking for a US or Japan made ESP or Edwards guitar with a very similar neck shape.
I want 24 frets with 2 full sized humbuckers.
I also do not want a bunch of bling, abalone crap that just fades and cracks over time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can find no specs on this neck.
The US ESP guys were helpful, but did not know anything about the Japan models.
The Japan guys did not know either, they simply replied that I cannot get the Kiko model anymore. I think something was lost in translation.......

I haven't. I don't even know anyone with an ESP out here.
I look at CL every morning though. If I see one pop up, I'll definitely go play it.
