This is a NICE guitar! I have an ESP Eclipse that I LOVE!!! I was a little hesitant to buy the E-II branded guitar because I was not sure what to expect. This guitar has a great feel and is well made. The neck-thru construction and lightning fast neck make this VERY playable. I read a few reviews about the craftsmanship on the E-II guitars that said they are fair at best. This was NOT the case with my guitar. No flaws to be seen or felt. The quilted maple is beautiful and immediately I got positive feedback from strangers and friends alike - not only on the appearance, but the sound too!
My volume know came loose within a few hours of playing, but I should have checked everything before playing!
