    A limited run that brings back the first ESPs to hit the States.

    The ESP Vintage Plus Guitar features a solid alder body, bone nut, and a rosewood fretboard. The thin U-shaped neck with 22 extra jumbo frets provides comfort and speed. Seymour Duncan SSL single-coil pickup provides that sweet bell tone that's always a winner. Gotoh Magnum Lock tuners keep you tuned so you'll sound your best. A Wilkinson Vintage bridge gives you the tool to make it talk, and a 5-way pickup switch gives you lots of tone options. Chrome hardware and dot inlays finish off a great look.

    ESP's 400 Series instruments were introduced as the first ESP models sold in the USA. Today they are highly sought after and are widely considered the best "vintage reproduction" instruments ever offered.

    ESP now issues a limited run of these Vintage Plus electric guitars. Each instrument is "distressed" at the factory to show years of natural wear and tear, with the look and feel of a vintage instrument, and modern refinements that improve it's playability and feel.

    expensive strat copy; Just Buy a Strat

    By Thor rough

    from West Palm Beach

    This guitar is expensive when compared to a standard strat. It has beter tuners and pup's but a dark sound and nothing exceptional except the price.The quality of the tuners and pup are better than average and the features are average but the value falls flat and I rate this guitar as less than average overall.Buy a Strat, you have more choices at various prices.

    Just go get a Strat!

    By MisfitsFan34

    from Cincinnati

    Ok look, this guitar is a good guitar. The price is a bit much for me, although I do own an ESP, a Jackson, and a Fender, this is just about up there with most of them. It's too expensive though and for this price just go buy a Stratocaster.

    ESP Vintage Plus Electric Guitar

    By Guitarred5

    from Washington, D.C.

    The ESP Vintage Plus Electric Guitar is a nice guitar. The tone controls, pick-up switch, and the pick-up themselves are quite good. The quality and craftmanship are top notch. My only criticism is that the guitar is a bit pricey. I'm a hobbyist a the present time, I've been playing guitar for 30 years. This guitar is quite versatile, it can be used as a practice instrument at home or you can play in a nightclub with a band. I love the rosewood neck, the fretwork is excellent; very neat, precise, and well done. The guitar is easy to tune and stays in tune thanks to the gotoh tuners. The sound of this guitar is a bit darker sounding compared to the typically bright sound of a stratocaster. This can be bad or good depending on what you are looking for in a guitar. I play mine through a Mesa Boogie Mark I which has a darker sound than a Fender amp anyway. If you turn down the treble volume to zero you will get a lot less of that 60 cycle hum that strats are famous for especially when you use a distortion pedal. All in all a nice guitar, great craftmanship, a good value and considerably less expensive than the Fender relics.
