    Delivers a sweet sound at the most extreme volumes.

    The ESP XTone PA-1 guitar from the Paramount series gives you the best of both worlds: acoustic and electric. It features the XTone semi-acoustic body and the built in B-Band Electret Film transducer pickup system that gives a tone sweet enough for the most heart wrenching rock ballad. The lightweight, semi-hollow body is made out of mahogany and is finished in black with chrome hardware. The look is completed with pearl and abalone block inlays and triple layered binding on the body, neck and headstock.

    Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

        ESP Xtone Guitar For The Ages

        By V in DC

        from Washington, DC

        Comments about ESP Xtone PA-1 Paramount Series Semi-Acoustic Guitar:

        Just got back from using my Xtone Guitar for the first time on a song recorded with Pro Tools in a recording studio...and needless to say it sounds heavenly on the tracks. I did not know what I was buying when I got this guitar but it is one of the best investments on musical equipment I have ever made...and that's on a budget! V in DC

        ESP X-TONE PA-1

        By OcAxeman

        from Ocean City Md

        Comments about ESP Xtone PA-1 Paramount Series Semi-Acoustic Guitar:

        Simply put,This is a beautiful guitar that plays and sounds as good as it looks,it was set up and ready to play right out of the box[very sweet!]though IMO the "X-tone PA-1" is NOT for someone who is looking for an acoustic guitar to play mostly unplugged,because it is more of an electricaxe then an acoustic guitar,and unplugged it is not much louder then my les paul,so if you are looking for an acoustic/electric with rich tone,or to jam with other musicians in a strictlyunplugged setting..this is not the axe for you.but when the PA-1 is run through an amp it is nothing short of amazing,I use my little RolandMicro Cube amp,and it seems to be a perfect combo,so if you are looking for an acoustic that plays and sounds more like an electric,and plan on usingan amp more than not..this is the perfect guitar for you,awesome axe!..cheers guys/gals;)

        Comments about ESP Xtone PA-1 Paramount Series Semi-Acoustic Guitar:

        Just brought this guitar 2 days ago and was not sure what I was going to get since I did not personally play one before ordering...but to my amazement this guitar is fantastic for the price. It also is a must buy on a budget. You will not be dissapointed with this purchase. It also sounds incredible out of the box...This is an excellent instrument! VPS. ESP has outdone themselves on this one...GREAT JOB!

        Great Guitar, Great Price

        By Dave-OCoLu

        from Washington, DC

        Comments about ESP Xtone PA-1 Paramount Series Semi-Acoustic Guitar:

        I recently bought this guitar on-line after seeing someone play one live. It looked great and sounded excellent. When my guitar came, I was not disappointed, the tone was just right and the action was perfect. For the price, I was amazed. Even unplugged, this guitar's semi-acoustic set gives a great sound for practicing. Also, plugged in, the built-in pickups sound great, which combined with the acoustics, give a deep warm tone. The understated elegance of this guitar is also just beautiful and would complement any collection.

        SET UP

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about ESP Xtone PA-1 Paramount Series Semi-Acoustic Guitar:

        GREAT guitar for the price, as the next similar instrument up is the Taylor T5 at $2k+, and as a working musician, I ain't feelin that. Electronics on the PA-1 are sound great. However, it comes set up like a NIGHTMARE! I had to pay $100+ to get the thing to play well. The action comes WAY too high on this guitar, and I had to get the FRETS filed down. Major pain. It's really put me off of ordering another ESP. So in short I had to spend more $$ & time before I got the PA-1 to play satisfactorily, but now it works great & I still saved over grand by not having to purchase a T5.
