Amazing guitar

Esp continues to out do themselves. Amazing guitar. Extremely well made. Beautiful top and sounds incredible. Really thrilled with this purchase !!


esp has completely out done themselves with this guitar. no complaints here. love the ebony fretboard and the flamed top is astonishing. the coil tap also works like a charm. huge thanks to sweetwater and their crew. perfectly in tune and playable right out of the case.

At Last

It's smaller than it looks in the pix, the upper horn seems HUGE here, but not when you play it. I needed something with the aggressiveness of Rammstein, but the flexibility of Steve Wilson. BINGO. The coil tap I use a LOT. Also, this guitar is perfectly balanced at the 17th fret. I can hold it there with two fingers. This makes it VERY comfortable to play. The ebony neck is perfect, and the neck size reminds me very much of a '70's era Les Paul. The finish is breathtaking.
