Comments about ESP EC10 Electric Guitar:

May be improved by 3/4 inch longer string length, a wider fret board, and proper controls (tone-volume for bridge pickup, tone-volume for other pickup and switch moved to horn on other side of strings. All of which could be corrected for a few hundred.

Seems like a suitable guitar to have around just in case others want to play in an impromptu jam session where they didn't bring their own instrument. It looks good enough to take onstage but at this price one wouldn't panic if a drunken novice picked it up without asking.

    Comments about ESP EC10 Electric Guitar:

    Tone/vol knob too high, as your picking hand will strike it now and then. The truss rod cover is nearly impossible to remove, silly as it sounds.

    Comments about ESP EC10 Electric Guitar:

    I wrote one review before i got this guitar, and now i finally got it and i can tell you what i think. Very good product and sounds and plays very well. The only thing i had to do was raise the bridge higher cause there was some fret buzz on the 3d, 4th, and 6th string, and that solved the problum. Other than that it plays and sounds real good. I even got a ESP case i ordered after i got the guitar and it is made just to fit my EC10.

      Comments about ESP EC10 Electric Guitar:

      I have got just about every name brand guitar there is but not this one. I have got Epiphones, Gibsons,Fenders,Squiers and all kinds in pretty colors too. I always wanted a ESP but could not find a good price on one. Then i saw this one and read the reviews, and it sounds like it is a nice good playing guitar and really nice for the price. I wish they had some other colors instead of black. That is alright and do not have a black guitar at all. Long as it is a ESP i do not care, and this might be what i need to add to my collection. I am going to get this with in the next week or so and i hope it does the job for me.

        Comments about ESP EC10 Electric Guitar:

        I am impressed for the price. This is a basic no frills guitar. Everything is put together well, no sharp frets, neck is fitted well to body, metal plate for the bolt on neck. Knobs and switch seem solid so far. The pickups are even decent, nothing great, but better than I expected, honestly. If you don't like them the guitar is plenty worth dropping the pups of your choice in it.

        The paint job is nothing special. I can see the overlap of the spray on the back, like it could use another coat or two. But for a hundred smackers, who cares. And the front and neck look fine.

        Heavier than I expected for basswood, the body is fairly thick, like an LP. Doesn't bother me, but if an LP is too heavy for you, you might not like it.

        I got this because it was cheap and thought I would slap some huge strings on it and use it for some alternate tunings and maybe slide. Also to just do crazy stuff to it that I wouldn't do to my other guitars. I will do those things because that is what I bought it for, but this is a solid guitar.

        Bottom line? Solid basic guitar. For the price, 5 stars all the way. Can't go wrong at this price and for twice the price or more.
