It's a superb, budget model that has dual humbucker pickups that deliver fat, warm sound. The price is competitive, which is typical of ESP. It also looks very cool indeed. We rate this guitar very highly, and think that it should be heard to be appreciated.This is a great product that includes premium features, such as the 24-fret, rosewood fretboard, tune-o-matic bridge, and unique headstock. The tone is the best feature, though, and a good choice if you like distortion and sustain. For the price, a solid pick.
