Best Uses

    I have played guitar for about 3 years now and this was my first non-entry level guitar, and it is the reason that I have a passion for guitar. It really is great for any genre, and it looks amazing in person. The only downside is that all my corners are chipped (and I have been very careful with it), while it does not effect anything but the appearance, it is still annoying. Other than that, this is a very well crafted guitar and most definitely worth the money (even though I got mine half priced)

    Well, i own a White EX-400 and this guitar is the same thing but only with the FL tremolo, and man if I had the chance I would get one for sure. This guitar is capable of giving you that "And Justice For All" tone and distortion more than any other guitar out there. If you want that amazing "thrash" sound, GET THIS.


    Just awesome.

    I've had this guitar since a bit more than a month ago. Feature-wise, it's just right: excellent pickups, a good licensed Floyd Rose and beautiful looks, but no incredible extras that would raise the bar up to 5.I had some issues with quality: the FR cavity had some defects, so the bridge was touching the wall and wouldn't return to a centered position on its own. I got the store to fix it for me, though, and it had no other problems and looks very solid. I may just have had bad luck, but be sure to check the FR thoroughly before getting it.Value-wise, this guitar is great! There are other guitars with the same features that are a bit cheaper, but the exotic shape was worth the extra cash. It's eye-catching, very beautiful and sounds excellent to boot!All in all, it's an incredible guitar, and my best purchase this year by far.


    The Best ;)

    This is one of the best guitars out there. Plays so fast and clean i run it with my line 6 and uber metal pedal for a real good metal sound heavy when u want it clean when you need it.I couldn't ask for a better guitar this is my favorite one i own and i have a lot nothing compares to the looks and playing ability that this guitar offers...


    Absolutely Beautiful

    By Jason-GLHsD

    from Binghamton, NY

    I'd ordered this guitar in March locally expecting it in the first week of May. I finally got the call on Friday that it had arrived. Holy s*** what a stunning guitar! Those Indonesians really know how to put a guitar together. It was set up at ESP USA and everything is perfect right out of the case, as is true with every ESP guitar I've bought. The sound is just awesome, as is to be expected with the combination of EMGs, mahogany, and a Floyd Rose bridge. This is my first FR equipped guitar, and I can honestly say that it's a lot less intimidating than I'd been lead to believe. All in all, this guitar looks and feels and sounds absolutely perfect.
