This guitar is really cool! it looks like nothing i've seen before! i like the way esp made their own design,and didn't just copy the gibson sg series! they look the same but this one is shiftet vertically along the fretboard! looks cooler than an sg! the features are ok. a tremolo would have been nice, but this guitar probably wouldn't look good with one anyway! It is top of the notch quality. I have no idea where it was made (maybe indonesia/malaysia???) but its real astonishing how everything fits together! overall this is a great guitar! the strings bend preetty well,...has a comfort grip,..if you like punk and metal or hard rock,..this guitar is perfect becuse its really balanced and tries to stay in a horizontal position!(not like the stratocasters 30-45 degree holding angles!)go for it!!!!

I was happy with this guitar for about 9 months but then i started to get fed up with it. The frets got way to small and i dont even go up to the 24th fret. It's also heavy as a brick. I was also disapointed with the pickup output. If ur thinking about getting this guitar i wouldnt suggest it. An epiphone sg would be much better.

Great axe for the money!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Had it for a few months now as my 3rd electric. It beats the more expensive guitar I used to have which was an epiphone 1961 reissue SG. Great build quality, killer finish, very sleek neck, and great sound. Only thing is you will have to get used to the neck dive. I already owned an SG before so I was used to it but this was slightly worse. But you do get used to it and then it isn't an issue anymore. If your looking for one of those perfect guitars for the money this is it.

Nice for the price

By rattlesnake

I played this at a local shop after seeing it on this site. This was the ESP I had ever played so I did not know what to expect. I was surprised. The body is unique and it felt comfortable, not awkward. The neck was comfortable and it made playing even more enjoyable. I was unimpressed with the pickups that they had but if you replaced them with higher priced EMGs then you would have a great guitar. For the price I would recommend this guitar to anyone who wants a guitar with an aggressive look but a beautiful sound.

I was just given this sweet music machine as a very special gift and i love the humbuckers and the SG style. Although it doesnt have a wammy this thing still kicks. Great for all styles of music.

This is simply the best guitar I own. If your thinking about buying this guitar you won't be dissappointed. I have 4 guitars and I still can't put this one down. This is a must have for anyone.

Second Guitar

By Viper201FM

from Mid Midwest

Had it for almost 2 years now. still sounds great, great sound, tone pot is awesome esp. with coil tap! FM finish looks great and gains many many compliments. super thin neck is super fun to play on. all other guitar necks feel chubby to me now. string stay in tune. finish must be hit VERY hard to crack. i do have a spider web crack after a cabinet corner... my G gets a little bend in it after a month only makes tuning a little tedious for that string.

SWEET GUITAR!!

By imanevildumbass

from Daphne, Al

I bought this guitar 6 months ago and since i have only used this guitar and ive been completely satisfied. I love the heavy feel of this guitar as opposed to an sg(which i feel like im gonna break when i play) the neck is very comfortably and fast or slow playing is easy. Heavy and mellow stuff sound great on this guitar. BUY ONE(or at least buy some esp, theyre the best)

A Quality Guitar.

By The_Beast

from North Carolina

I got this guitar at my local music store in See-Through Black, and i have to say.....WOW. It wasn't as heavy as my other ESP. The pickups are excellent, They have a lot a crunch, and chords sound beautiful on it. For a player on bugdet I recommend this guitar to you.

Good guitar

By Iggy-tjM7_

A buddy of mine bought this guitar and have frequently used it. The flame top is a very attractive feature and the guitar has great overall tone. The ESP-EMG pickups are great, you can go straight from a ballady soft song to a hard crunchy metal song and it still preforms beautifully. Great Japanese construction as well for an ltd.

Amazing Guitar

By Paraplegiance

from Lebanon, IN

See all my reviews

I bought this guitar earlier this month and it has been hard for me to put it down. The neck is nice and thin, which is great for fast playing. It came with the ESP stock pickups, which are pretty flexible between a lead treble sound and a fat rhythm sound, although I have a little trouble with harmonics. There were only a couple problems I had with this guitar. The Volume knob is starting to come a little loose, and my neck strap button is starting to come out. Just minor problems that can easily be repaired. I recommend this guitar to anyone that plays fast and complex parts or enjoy fat tones or treble tones in one axe.
