This guitar is great!! I have it now for 2 months and it has served me so well, that I'm in love with my guitar. I was looking for a guitar cause my old guitar... ja,well let me tell you, I need it one because my old guitar wasn't giving me the tickness, the low and the good sounds that I need it for my style of music. I was very busted. So I was in a budget. I was looking for guitars in the catalogs, websites, ect. Neither couln't find the guitar that were very good at a low price, so i check againg and the i found the most awsome yhing, this guitar was so cool. it has all the things I need it. The EMG HZ-H4 wich I need it for the thickest sound for my style. The LICENSED FLOYD ROSE TREMOLO, is so good i don't even want to change it for any thing. The basswood body is so hard yet so lightweigth, and it has a cool shape. The 2 volume, 1 tone and a 3 pickup switching(wich i want it to be 5) but thats ok. I am not a professional, but i an a intermade to advance guitar player, and for bucks it was all worth it.

I have had this guitar for a year and a half. During this period of time i have taken it to my guitar technician 5 seperate times. I own several guitars most have floyd rose tremelos, none have been as difficult as this guitar. The action is very unstable. The pick ups are great. The look is menacing. The stability of the neck leaves alot to be desired. Spend the extra money and buy the EC-1000.

Don't miss out

By armyguy84

from Houston, TX

I'll keep it short, because, honestly, I can't think of anything bad to say about this guitar. It is without a doubt the best, greatest sounding, most versatile guitar I have in my arsenal. If you only have money for one guitar, this is it.

buy it

By Metalmechanic

Ask me a question

This guitar rocks, I?ve played a lot of more expensive guitars that to sound this good or play as well, the dual locking tremolo takes some getting used to but ounce you get used to this guitar its great. Buy one. The only thing that could be better is a five position switch instead of three but that?s it. It?s a great guitar.

great sound and feel....

By Jay Madhav

from LA

I really enjoy playing this guitar. In fact, I can hardly put it down. The sound is thick, rich, and bold - awesome. The Floyd rose, once tuned correctly, stays in tune and works exceptionally well, delivering great whammy action. However, I didn't like the weight and the guitar is somewhat thick and non-ergonomic. But willing to put up with that for a great sounding guitar with fold rose and great pick ups.

Now I can play like Kirk

By singlewmale30

from Fayetteville, TN

Now I can play like Kirk, well not quiet like him but this guitar is so great, the sound, look and feel is unbelivable. I own a Les Paul standard as well as several other guitars and this one leaves em all behind no comparison.

I own a les paul and this guitar kh-203 has better build, playability, tone and overall quality than my les paul studio.

Freakin' sweet!

By tHrAsHmEtAl06

from Orofino, Id

You need to buy this guitar it's amazing. It came set up perfectly, and ready to play out of the box. The only reason I gave it a 9 in Features and Quality is because it only has a 3 way switch instead of a five way, and it's easy to scratch. Ignore the review that says the tremolo isn't stable, because I'm new to trem's and this one is excellent. The neck is very comfortable and it's easy to reach the high frets. The pickups are perfect, clear and full of tone. Thank you ESP and this site for the great guitar.

One of the best for the money

By Jacob-pnGwv

from Thibodaux, LA

This is a great guitar I have had it for a couple of months and it has become my main stage guitar the only thing that I would change would be to switch out the two volume knob so that the first one you grab is the Bridge pickup but other than that you can not beat this guitar.
