    Here are pics of my newest Explorer. Work was done by www.sharp-concepts.com and it is absoloutely killer! Its actually not that much heavier than my other explorer (the black one in the last pic) and the diamond plate seems to have added a slight tightness to the sound too.

    I know most of you are Metallica-haters but didn't James have an ESP Explorer with black Diamond plating in the S&M video and possibly on other tours? I seem to remember reading that he got it somewhere around the '91 Black album tour.
    Right Now...My gf is probably reading my posts.

    Kinda. One of his early black ESP Explorers was from the early 90s and had the Jagermeister inlays. Around 95, James wanted to put the black diamond plate on an explorer and the Jagermeister was chosen for the experiment. This led to the ESP JH2 signature guitar. He also has a bright chrome one that he uses live as well. The black one is for d-tuned songs, the bright chrome is 1/2 step down.

    That's totally cool, MJ.

    We used to use lonseal flooring vinyl in the same style as your finish to make stages for Chuck E. Cheese at my last job. Granted, it wasn't as luminescent as your actual finish, but I thought the shit was totally cool. I could imagine using it to cover my garage door or something and make it look like an airlock or something, LOL [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img] It would probably make an amp cabinet look killer as well. (*wolf designs new "Terminator" line of amplifiers in head as he posts...) [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]
    'Course, the lonseal would probably ruin the tone of guitar body wood if you applied it.
