"The single-cut 7-string I've been waiting for!"

Another killer LTD 7-string.
The EMGs sound great w/the mahogany. Very easy to get teh br00t4Lz outta this thing. It would probably sound good clean too, if I cared about that sorta thing ; )
The satin finish not only looks cool, but makes the neck faster.I also love the fact that, even though it's an "LP" style guitar, it's got a 25.5" scale length; much better for that low B-string.
Ease of Use
Plug it in and ROCK! The neck feels pretty much identical to my Viper-417 (which is to say KILLER!).
The quality is actually quite high for the price; the only reason for a slightly lower mark here is that the tuners SUCK! They are not Grovers, as the text says, they're ESP tuners with the crappiest gearing ever. The body binding was executed very nicely. Action was great out of the box -- No dead spots, no rough fret edges, nice clean fingerboard. Just had to switch to my brand/guage of strings and I was good to go!
Never had to deal with ESP support; I've never had problems with their products.
The Wow Factor
Looks even more awesome in person than it does online! Looks classy *and* evil!
