    Comfortable design with a choice of exciting tone woods.

    The ESP Xtone Exotic Wood Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is luxurious looking and sweet sounding. It offers plugged in performance for the stage and is available in an assortment of exotic tone woods that are among the most beautiful you can find.

    Your choice of woods
    Usually you'll have a choice of finishes, but with the ESP Xtone you have something deeper—an actual choice of tone woods. Apart from their dramatic difference in appearence, each exotic wood has its own sonic character.

    Ovangkol has a deeper "more rosewood" type tone
    Spalted maple is a bit warmer and not as bright as regular maple
    Zebrawood creates a very nice full sound with dark overtones
    Paduak is similar in tone to the best rosewood

    Playability
    The ESP Xtone has a comfortable body design and features a smooth cutaway for upper fretboard access. The thin U neck has a 25.5" scale and is easy to finger notes quickly with its extra jumbo frets.

    Electronics
    The onboard B-Band pickup/preamp system has the controls necessary to find your sound on stage and to help fight feedback. It features an active 3-band EQ, a chromatic tuner, and a handy feedback-busting phase switch.

    • Set-neck construction

        I picked up the Paduak model of this guitar as a restock. I got a great price and a great guitar. Prior to purchasing I went to the ESP website to compare and this model and the description/pickup matches up with the AC-20E model. There are some youtube videos online from ESP that you can watch to get an idea of how the guitar will play.

        Some pictures of the paduak model show it as a bright redish finish. Those are poor quality images. I really love the finish of this guitar and it plays/sounds great. Every time I walk by and see it, I want to pick it up and play it.

        I gave it five stars for the restock price because I got and awesome guitar.

        The item arrived and it was a very attractive piece. I ordered the stupid deal of the day refurb. What I received had the face and headstock of a zebra and the sides and back of something else. The label inside said the model was an AC-20, not an XW-Z as it should have.

        That was all ok with be, but unfortunately the active electronics did not work. I called the next day and received a shipping label to return the guitar. That was almost two weeks ago, the replacement should arrive in two days.

        More to come...

        Comments about ESP Xtone Exotic Wood Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I've been playing guitar for over 40 years, and performing onstage for almost 40 years.
        I needed a full-bodied acoustic-electric for multiple-type performances; I had sold my Ovation (!) to acquire a Flamenco guitar (re: review on Yamaha Flemenco).
        Musician's friend only had the Paduak model for sale from the search of price-range (there are other nice models, esp. the spalted maple...very unique, on the ESP web site). It was the perfect price for my needs.
        I received it today (01/22/14) and when I took it out of the box it was everything I had wanted. I did a lot of research into this model (my day job is typically research) and the only significant negative comments involved the finish.
        It was beautiful (I am NOT an appearance snob) and flawless...the rosette and fret-markers were gorgeous..however: I tuned it up, and the unplugged sound was phenomenal...I've played friends' Martins that did not sound this splendid. Those in front of me as I played said it had a full-bodied sound, more like a "regular" acoustic.
        The BEST part: I'm typically a jazz player, and bought this for "Gypsy" Jazz...its action is very, very much like the jazz guitars I've owned. Excellent (!) action.
        To test the electronics, I plugged in through a Fender Champ combo (which has a tendency to buzz with acoustic-electric) and it had a superior chimey tone (ESP internet site stipulates that the different models of their exotic wood guitars will have different tones, which is part of their desirability ....the Paduak model is similar to rosewood).
        To those who are not "brand-snobs," this is a perfect guitar: playability, sound, function and VALUE.

            Comments about ESP Xtone Exotic Wood Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I bought this guitar as a restock and I am very pleased. This little acoustic shreds like a heavy metal axe. The extra jumbo frets are tall and could use a filing but otherwise the guitar feels good. The ash woodgrain looks superb! The tuner is accurate enough and the preamp is strong. I usually don't go for really pretty instruments like this one, but in this case my gamble paid off. I would pay full price for this guitar and feel good about the purchase. Thanks, MF!!

            highly impressed! for the money,this thing is T-Totally loaded with high end features. I think it sounds great through an amp,,,, unplugged is pretty loud too and sounds awesome. i got a restock and could only find a couple of "very un-noticeable" blemishes in the clear coat. this thing is beautiful and worth every penny that i paid. Thanks MF!

                Good 2nd guitar. I bought this one as my Tacoma Cheif was too expensive for the kids to be playing and so I wouldn't worry about it breaking. Good quality and sound for the price.

                    Bought this from "Stupid Deal of Day - Restock", and was greatly pleased with it. Online photos didn't do the finish justice. Beautiful mother-of-pearl trim and gold-toned tuning pegs. Rich full sound. I'm a beginning player, so onboard tuner makes tuning simple even for me. Stays in tune. Only minus is no pick guard. A lot of quality for a modest price! My son and his friends are experienced guitar players and they loved the sound quality.
