Esp Ec1000 vb

This is one bad*** sounds great clean but once u distort it and add some crunch it turns into a whole other beast. My only complaint with this war axe is that i didnt order it sooner. So if ur looking for something to keep u warm at night this aint it but if ur lookin to make something squeal an snake some tail at the sametime then get on stage with one of these beasts an let her rip

I absolutely love everything about this guitar. The mahogany body, the ebony fretboard, the locking tuners, the killer EMG pickups, etc. This is one impressive Axe, especially at this price point. The tones and sustain you get out of this machine are outstanding. The fit and finish are impeccable. Im very picky with cosmetic flaws, and this one is perfect. If your looking for a LP body guitar, look no further. You will not be disappointed with this one, it is amazing in every way.


I love this guitar. I received it quickly and very well packaged. My guitar arrived in tune after traveling half way across the country! Not only is this guitar that stout but, Sweetwater is amazing!The sound of this guitar is killer! The shape of the neck combined with the satin finish makes it a pleasure to play. It does not feel as heavy as other Les Paul style guitars do either. Which, is a good thing in my opinion. And wow, if you've never used locking tuners before, you have no idea what you are missing! I did have a few minor issues with this guitar though. The nut isn't evenly glued to the headstock completely. 99% of people wouldn't notice it but I just happened to see it. Doesn't effect the function in any way though.Both volume knobs were difficult to adjust for a while too. After a few weeks of playing this guitar they loosened up though.Overall, I would highly recommend this guitar. It stays in-tune surprisingly well, the neck seems very stout. Switching from standard tuning to drop tuning the neck stays right where I want it.Feels and sounds amazing.Looks fantastic.Only lost half of a star because of some minor quality control issues.
