ESP Kelly Hayes
ESP Custom Shop guitar Japanese
24 frets, two EMG 81
Tone-Pro bridge with strings through-
Mahogany body, ebony fingerboard, pearl incrustaions
Spezel mechanical self-locking
Maple set neck
One volume knob and a tone
Pickup selector type gibson
Drawing spider-shaped symbol of the COLD group, which I love, which is the guitarist Kelley Hayes (we see white, but in reality it is silver gray). Contrary to what one can say is far from shocking or flash, nothing to be stopped, quite the contrary. It's daring, but it's still sober.


Channel super nice, the satin finish is to die.
It is a form Les paul so do not expect access to acute as easy as on a Start but it's far from the obstacle course.
Top weight, no problem, you can play standing for hours (and we do not deny it).
The knobs are super effective.


So here it kills all!
It seems that this guitar was invented in the cause of sustain. Whether at the set neck, rope traversing, or ebony fingerboard that propagates sound accurate and endless, everything has been done to take note that a quarter of an hour.
Originally it is mounted in EMG 81 for the metal is the TOP. It will depend on your gear, but these pickups are very good microphones, and despite what I hear, I maintain that clear sound, these pickups are not bad, however. Either way you can change to the Duncan or DiMarzio, the violin and aesthetics already justifies the purchase.
I play on a stack marshall TSL 100 that I use with an MXR DD11 Dime (also echohead and marshall regenerator, and PS-5 boss) and there are the peaks of plaisr within my reach.


I use it for 2 months. Beautiful drawing, I love Cold Group, is far from generating a flash effect like "jme's farts, chuis too hard" is unusual, but it's still class. The violin is crying and alone justifies the purchase, the microphones, typed metal, however, can touch everything and the clean sound is not bad, far from it! Price / quality ratio -> It's expensive, but it's good. It is used to guard and LIFE. I would do this choice without the slightest shadow of doubt.

ESP Kelly Hayes
What can I say that the comment above! complete information are, effectivemment I confirm the drawing is rather silvery gray and if the look of the guitar is simple it is especially the matte black paint is at the beginning I must admit I found it ugly, but in fact it ' is exactly what he needs! the look is terrible, and obviously it is even if ye are a fan of cold! (Kelly had had the same one arraigné painted red, and ouaais ...)
Note that the finish is high quality, just take the guitar in his hands to see that all items are quality


Handle very nice, the back of the handle is black if that's not the class! quite thick but it is especially good for the riff!
access to acute way, forcing it to form a guitar les paul and in addition there are 24 boxes, it says it less hassle than a gibson true especially when one must talk about the weight! Indeed, though the guitar seems solid, but is rather light for its shape. And in terms of sound, with two EMG ba it does it anyway now!


The distortion that rocks! nothing to say distortion sounds are terrible, as well as micro micro severe acute after the look, when you hear the sound we want to live again with! the EMG pickups are active and sound great, clean with a distortion of sustain ...
While the history of its clear, ba, you know, I would say it's all business, there is nothing extraordinary person and yet I loved, I would say simply that as I had just discovered cold months before I had the same clear sound that cd! I thought it was necessarily so great, but objectively I would say the clean sound is not great ..


Well to be honest, I tried this guitar many years ago, she was still in the catalog ESP when I tried it!, I had to buy a 7 string and I asked the salesman if I could try.
To summarize, the shape of a guitar paul unusual, a rare instrument with a personality that really over.
Too bad for me I would have done better to take the place of the 7-string!
Too bad for you! and yes unfortunately the model is rather rare to find more and become collector using as it is no longer the price may be really bad!
