I’ve considered this, too. Those I’ve talked to who favor 27+ fret guitars claim it’s the ease of hitting frets 20-24 resulting from the added real estate that ruins other guitars for them.
Those ESPs are sweet. I remember feeling like they’d been flying under my radar when of the stores I worked with became an ESP/II/LTD dealer. And their custom shop always had the craziest NAMM displays full of guitars that looked like Bayonetta bosses.
Yep. It’ll help if/when someone lists another Fly in the range of yours. I can’t be the only one to notice that your Supreme is the most expensive listing for one ever; and I suppose the typical buyer of Flys listed for over $4k has to be considering whether they’re far enough from the inevitable ceiling in all this to still be able to resell it for profit, should it not become their pride and joy.
The $9,000 Belew listing from two weeks ago lasted twenty eight hours because a fair amount of people had been waiting since 2018 for one to pop up. Whereas this Adam D custom (the current most expensive listing, above yours) has been sitting since February because, despite being rare as hen’s teeth, the peculiarities of the model relegates it to being even more niche in appeal than a typical Fly. I’d buy it myself if a few grand was knocked off - but the seller knows they only have to wait until the one person on the fence finally talks themselves into haggling.
