Great Guitar

By B-Man-8Dpd7

from Wilkes-Barre, PA

The Ex-401 is truly an amazing guitar. The EMG's give it the perfect sound for metal, especially through my Line 6 amp. I only wish it had 2 volume knobs instead of 1, but thats a minor set back. Overall, if you're looking for a guitar with great looks, great sound, and a great feel...look no further!

more bada$$ than a gibson explorer!

By wrxtasy

See all my reviews

This guitar is by far the most verstile and easiest instrument to play that ive ever had. It has a smooth, fast neck, and standing up and playing is not a problem because it is very light but just a tad neck heavy so don't let go of the neck when you stand. If always been a fan of gibson explorers and always played this black one at my local music store. But face it: with a gibson all your paying for is the name and a 22 coat of laquered paint job. No different than a high end epiphone people. And with this guitar as opposed to a true explorer, you get emgs that scream all genres from metal to jazz to punk even. So you want a nice explorer with killer looks for half the price? Go with ESP.

Great Guitar!

By Guyver

from Kansas City

This is a great guitar, for a great price, I've played explorer models at nearly twice the price w/ half the tone of this beast, the Set Neck coupled with the EMG 81/60 active set is all you need for great cleans and heavy as hell grit, even with a cheap imitation rectifier amp-mod pedal I use from time to time this guitar sounds amazing! I've heard people say the EX series is too heavy, well they're made of weak sauce I say!(buy some dumbells or something)My Epi Les Paul is at least 4lbs heavier then the EX-401If you want a great above entry level shredder look no more for this is your next guitar purchase!

straight edge

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This guitar is straight compared to 400. EMG R badass to the bone, cut through sound. The guitar it self will put nails in anything that gets in it's way. I love this guitar. Check It out....

more versitile than expected

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is a pretty wicked guitar, easy to play. it has a thick trebly sound like no other. but ive been messing around with the settings and I was supprised to find that the EMGs give off a really nice clean sound too. The only real thing that i dont like is that the strings on mine buzz on the frets a little. but it makes no difference on the sound out of the amp and it probably could be fixed by ajdusting the nut or bridge or something like that. also its a little neck heavy, this hasn't really gotten in the way so suck it up cause the neck heavyness comes with the explorer shape in general.

This is the first of many guitars that i plan on owning and I have to say that i wasnt disappointed. It plays absolutely amazing. It took a long time to get to me, but it was well worth the wait. The pickups are amazing, overall Im just estatic, this is an awesome axe.

Buy It

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This guitar is god like. It really is. I own the diamond plate one and the sound quality is amazing. The fret board is really fast and this guitar is well worth every penny invested on the instrument. The only draw back is the active pickups. It is a pain in the ass to change the battery especially when we are in the middle of a song. Just pay attention to the sound and when it starts to loose its thickness change the battery. But in the long run buy it. You WILL be pleased.
