ESP WaveCaster

    The custom ESP guitar (the picture on the right side):
    Instead of the standard neck with the simple dot inlays of Kirk's guitar, that one has devil inlays like the ESP signature KH-1 model. The headstock is black instead of the natural colored headstock of Kirk's guitar. At the top of the custom guitar's headstock is another devil like the inlay devils and it has different tuners on it.
