Just got it today. I am 58 years old yet felt like a 12 year old on Christmas. I literally stared and admired the lines of the guitar for over an hour before I actually played it. Running my hands all over it it felt like a work of art it was so well constructed. I stared at it from every angle as if it was the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. I have had one high-end guitar in my life and this one has all the same qualities it had. all my other guitars have been pawnshops specials or purchased from friends. This time I decided to treat myself and buy an ESP. it was the only guitar line I was willing to buy during this search I could not be happier .I played Deathmetal and such and I’ve always gone for the more extravagant body styles but this a beautiful guitar body style and color is Metal AF.
I would just like to mention one more thing I noticed the guitar fretboard says roasted Jatoba? My foot board looks closer to black especially next to my other guitars watch other fretboard closer resembling the roasted Jatoba. My fretboard looks closer to black especially next to my other guitars watch other fretboard closer resembling the Jatoba. it actually looks WAY more better with this black satin finish. Is it possible you may have updated the fretboard color options since previous postings?
I was a singer in many bands in my 20's and used to play our guitarists' instruments. I never owned a guitar. But since 2019 I have this awesome six string. I upgraded it with EMG pickups though.
A great guitar, above the entry level for beginners but still at a reasonable price irange f you decide not to continue playing.
