ESP guitars are the hard rock or and metal guitars that many of today's artist go to for their guitar needs. This guitar is a very beautiful guitar on the top with its nice quilted maple laminate. This guitar has two humbucker pickups as well as a routed Floyd Rose tremolo system. These guitars are pretty solidly built guitars and they arw very comfortable to play.

SOUNDS

This axe features two hum pups that sounds very good and a high gain amplifier setting. These guitars aren't full of tone like you would find in a Fender Stratocaster or a Gibson Les Paul guitar. However it's going to be a nice rich tone as can be very suitable for most styles of music. This guitar cleans up pretty well and overall has a nice balance and feel for any type of music. The neck is very comfortable a play on and the action on the frets is very good too. Whatever amplifier you use with this guitar it's good to sound pretty good but it really comes to life with a nice high again amplifier.


OVERALL OPINION

You can find these guitars new for right at around $1999 which is a price point that is somewhere in the middle of a standard guitar and a custom shop guitar. It is a happy medium point for some consumers. Overall this is a cool guitar but if I would to spend this kind of money I would go with a Custom Shop Charvel. You can spend a few extra hundred bucks and get a CS and it will have a better neck and tone that matches better with more styles of music.
