Mars Music closeout sale 11/02- it looked so fine & sounded so sweet I had to get it to expand my arsenal- paid $400!
It's sort of a cross between a LP, a Hamer semi-hollowbody, & a Guild Blueshawk.
It has great warmth & harmonics - must be the mahogany block- with unbelievable sustain- better than my Hamer import double-cutaway & it's very light.
It grabbed my attention because of it's looks- white with gold hardware.
The variation in tone is really good.
The bridge pickup is very high pitched and will cut through the band mix quite well.
After 2 weeks or so I pulled my Roland synth pickup off an old guitar & slapped it on the ESP. Now it's hard to choose between the ESP & my Brian Moore i8-13.
The bridge pickup is 'thin' but you could use another guitar for shredding or tweak out your effects/amp emulation.
The back is not sculpted in any way so you can't kick back & relax w/o it digging into your ribs- probably an LP copy 'feature'
Very good quality for a Korean import- they have their cloning down to an art.
No defects to be seen, so far.
If you want a semi-hollow body sound this is a great buy. The range of sound you get is great. For me it was either get a Roland VG-88 Guitar emulator or buy more guitars.
You can't have too many guitars!
This beauty is made of Cor.
Channel 24 frets, EMG-HZ (which I replaced with a kit Zakk Wylde: EMG 81 in bridge and a 85 for the handle)
2 knobs and 1 volume knob to position 3 Tone Slecteur the "Gibson".
The handle is trs enjoyable to play rhythm (which is my case), it easily reaches Most recent internship boxes without contortionist ...
It is much more than a Les Paul lgre table trs and comfortable, the back is hollowed out so that the belly of the guitar is based against the scratches.
Personally, I've Mount of EMG active so the sound that it is simply monstrous desire! lol
It is made to the Metal (the real one, not No. ..).
I plug in a Peavey Bandit 112, and it's up!
I have a few months and I'm really not.
The report qualitprix is excellent as it should be remembered that the ESP.
I would do this election if the opportunity arises Submitted!
