Guitar is my second instrument, but I am very picky. I have had this guitar for over 6 months now. The fret work is nice, it is well built, and it sounds great. Just like any guitar, It needed some minor setup. I filed the nut slots a bit deeper, and installed Graphtech string trees. I also took a peek into the control cavity. It is wired up really well. Nice guitar ESP!
