"INCREDIBLE GUITAR !!!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Used to have 16 guitars to choose from when I Gigged,My favorite was a 1976 Black Beauty Les Paul Custom...Unfortuneately ,I'm a Disabled Gulf war Vet and had some health issues arise...along with having to stop working and Medical Bills mounting up..I had to sell my Beloved "Family" of guitars/Gear. I've had a couple of MIM Fender Fat Strats that I Modded..put Seymours in,worked on the necks/frets,ended up with Nice,Playable,Great sounding guitars. BUT,I ALWAYS and WILL Always miss my Les Paul. About a week ago,I saw an Amber Flametop ESP LTD EC1000 Deluxe (BLEM) for $759,4 payment option....Read the reviews,talked to friends/other Guitar Players,and I Pulled the Trigger....
It came the Next Day on a Sat..(I live in S Jersey,so I'm CLOSE to zZounds Warehouse,That was Nice Surprise #1 ) It came INTACT,No Manual or Warranty card,but ,had the Truss Hex Wrench. The ONLY THING I FOUND Were SMUDGES on the Stopbar/Body... I have had a Mag Light over this Axe...NOTHING TO REPORT,No Electronics issues,No Neck Issues..Intonation...Perfect,all I had to do was Lower the String Height a Gnat's Hair and I Now have the CLOSEST GUITAR TO MY '76 Black Beauty in Tone,Playability,and, BEAUTIFUL LOOKS...FOR A FEW GRAND LESS ...Win,Win,Win !!!! All I can figure is someone Bought it,and returned it...WHY..I have NO IDEA...GUITAR IS 5X5 and I can Die a Happy Camper now...Seymours MAKE the Guitar Sing or SCREAM....Very Happy with this Purchase,With zZounds,and , just need to buy a NICE Case for it now.. THANK YOU ZZOUNDS !! THANK YOU ESP FOR AN INCREDIBLE GUITAR FOR THE PRICE....EVEN If it was a Grand More.....Sorry Gibson :(
Playing Guitar since the early 70s,Played Pro for awhile,some cover / Party Bands,Now for Myself/My Chorkie GROUPIE lol
