Amazement! In wanting to register my new acquisition of AF, I realized that I was the first owner of this guitar to leave a avis.Tâchons to honor him and to inform the public a little better, because it a model worth.
In short, the guitar is made in China and is up for sale in Finland.
The body is basswood, maple neck and rosewood in the key.
The handle is the "classic" in ESP, Thin U according to their name, a handle end, but a little rounder and broader than in Jackson (compare that to be compared)
Also note that the round is through (rare for this price range), it is also a small cut to facilitate access to acute.
Speaking of acute, this guitar has a neck 24 frets, jumbo frets.
A single microphone at the bridge, but a good EMG81 (no no, this guitar is modeled on a famous artist, you're wrong ...)
If not complete, the settings is simple: "a single volume knob"
No fuss, if you want more settings, it will be on your amp it will do them.
Then the handle is simply énormissime (in the good way.)
It is very nice grip almost immediately, I found my happiness.
Access to acute easier than on a RR in Jackson, but less than an Ibanez RG from home (I owned). We will say that it is correct, although it will take a little force on the hand to reach the 24th fret (but nothing serious I assure you.)
Ergonomics zero, but it is known in advance before buying this guitar.
It looks a little loose when the sangle.Heureusement, I nabbed the trick to play sitting, simply shorten the strap so that the guitar does not move, take a kind of small booster and will place your left foot so that it is higher than your right foot.
It is better and it is immediately more comfortable.
I play almost exclusively of metal, so I needed a guitar that could send the sauce.
This guitar is not versatile for a penny, the clean is horrible, highly crystalline, the sound is cold, neutral enough and eventually it just fine because I do not play in any case never clean.
But as soon as one engages the distal boom, the guitar reveals its true potential and go.
Its a very accurate (thank you the 81), powerful, heavy, short, everything I love.
I tested it on a Peavey Bandit 112 + Line 6 Uber Metal, so with this config ca hard, I can not imagine what it could give a tube amp, I strongly Krank Revolution JR!
I do not hate none sounds as those that suit me sound like I want, that's all.
I use it for one week.
I tested for Ibanez, Jackson, including other EC LTD, Epiphone, Gibson, Squier, Tanglewood and the LTD is surely that caught my attention the most (even in this model)
I love: the look, sound, ease of tuning, ease of setting, finishing and general features for the price.
There is nothing I dislike about this guitar (or at least what I was looking.)
Q / P only good for € 539, it was a guitar that not only the face but also one of the madman.
I do not have that choice would do, I love this guitar, but if I should take me one, I will take an ESP SV I think, to get into the range.
Still, I recommend to anyone (beginner, advanced and expert) to test this guitar because it is really worth.
