"Awesome guitar!!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is a fantastic guitar from ESP. I've heard many people complain about the e-ii series not being up to par with the older ESP standard series, but this guitar is everything the older ones were and more. The neck feels great, not to thin, not too chunky. And the frets were perfectly leveled and polished, too. The pickups sound stellar as expected from a pair of Seymour Duncans. My only gripe is with the case that it came in. It's a great hardshell case, but the buckles don't feel very secure when they are closed. It still holds it shut and it's not going to break, but I feel like they could have been better fitted. It's a very minor drawback and should not deter anybody away from this incredible guitar. And of course, Zzounds has amazing customer service which is just the icing on the cake. Buy one before they're gone!!!!
