About a year ago, in April, I bought this guitar as a sort of early (very early) birthday gift to myself. A couple months ago, I finished paying off this guitar, and took a deep breath. I held off on writing this review to make sure it wasn't a honeymoon phase, and here I am.Firstly, let's talk about the construction and quality. In it's price range, this thing is unrivaled and unmatched. There's no way that I could see any Gibson coming close and maybe only a PRS in terms of fit and finish. Flawless. From there we got the neck feel - I'm a firm believer that ESP makes the best modern neck shape in the game. Hell, best neck shape period. The Thin U is perfect for just about anything and one of the most comfortable necks I've tried. The sleek feel translates directly to the clean aesthetics. A Sandy beach shore fade on a burl maple top with light flaming in the deep colors. An absolute joy to play and look at. The hardware compliments it nicely in a dark brushed chrome. The pickups give the nice looking exterior a screaming, heavy sound ah since if the best pickups that EMG has to offer in the 57TW/66TW set. All of this and it includes Schaller strap locks.Long story short every time I pick up this guitar in truly in awe of it's playability, craftsmanship, and just how affordable it is considering everything else. With every single penny, and ESP has a return customer for life.

I ignored my gut and went with a Gibson Les Paul Classic at first. BIG MISTAKE. I had heard about the quality issues, but I was under the impression that they were resolved. Doesn't seem to be the case! Had to send it back.This guitar on the other hand? Puts the Gibby to shame. I was absolutely speechless while unboxing the instrument. Everything about it was in pristine condition. The fit and finish on this thing is flawless! The EMGs go from chuggy to warm to crisp and chimey. Super pleased! As another user mentioned - they don't really dial back. They have 2 modes off and on. The volume knob doesn't seem to do much until the sound completely dies. Other than that - the guitar could use a setup. Action is a bit high for my taste and the nut looks like it might need a bit of filing to be able to fit my preferred 10-52.Overall I'm very pleased with this purchase and even more so with zZounds and their customer service team.

"If your looking for an easy to play LP this is it!"

I bought this on a whim. I love my Gibson but struggle with the tuning issues. This guitar plays awesome! Tuning is way more stable and these emgs sound excellent. Was never a fan of emgs but these have a very classic sound mixed with a modern edge. The frets play like butter and the craftsmanship is right on par with my more expensive Suhrs. The neck is a little chunky but not too chunky. It’s just right. You can’t go wrong with this beautifully crafted instrument.

"Best guitar for the price hands down"
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars

You will never find a guitar with this build quality for this price from anyone in the USA. Absolutely flawless finish, perfectly set up from factory. (Mine was not removed from the original packaging upon arrival to zZounds). Spec wise, this guitar won't need anything to make it road worthy. Locking tuners and strap locks from factory. Not a huge fan of active pickups but these sound really good. My only grip is that the pickups don't clean up when rolling back the volume. Not sure if this is common with actives as this is my first set.
Sound
Great overall tones. Clean or dirty, split or full humbucker. Very sensitive to your picking dynamics. Pickups don't clean up when rolling back the volume knob.
Features
Component spec is fantastic for the price point. No one else offers Gotoh locking tuners and strap locks for this price.
Ease of Use
Super comfortable neck. Not a baseball bat neck and not an wizard neck. The active pickups are going to take a little getting used to.
Quality
This guitar is worthy of custom shop status. You will not find a better made guitar in this price range from any other manufacturer. This thing makes Gibsons look like they were made in junior high wood shop.
Value
Best guitar for the money. Worth far more than the price tag.
The Wow Factor
There is a reason why its continually back ordered.
