for the price / the way I play and treat a guitar I will keep on playing LP style as long as They make them I am sold on these little Gems

Sound
if your looking for that fat LP sound your looking at the wrong Guitar this guitar has a real bright hard rock sound if you like distorion go for it and crank it up

Features
this is a simple set up ( if you have ever played in a rock band you know simple is better ) the only thing I see you will need to up grade is the volume and tone knobs but for $230 what do you expect replacements are cheap to upgrade

Ease of Use
once I got used to the volume knobs being in the wrong order ( had the neck in the bridge location and bridge in the neck location ) but as far as controls not a problem easy to tone three way works good you may want to have your guitar tec set the pickup and the action if you order on line

Quality
other than chep knobs yes I play out side 80% of the time so I don't use big $ guitars when we have a job and I beat the He!! out of my guitars this thing is holding up great I've droped it , hammer on it with my fist and just down right tear thinks up and other than a couple scars IT keep on ticking

Value
best bang for the buck I seen in a long time and I have played read more for 30years

Manufacturer Support
I have never dealt with the company but I deal with the store that I bought mine from and they are ESP/LTD reps they treat me great and I will be buying another one for a back up and a second to try drop D tunning in

The Wow Factor
the Quilted to and contour of the back make them look sexy and very confortable to play weather you hang it low or strap it high I don't care for the cherry I have the starburst and I get a lot of my friends picking it up and I have alot of friend in bands with big $ guitars who just love it
