"Why the esp deluxe will out play most guitar over a grand"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
wont need to do anything else to this guitar its a prosetup top of the line!!
Sound
well its mahagony body set neck thru so the sustain is amazing!! And of couse the emg 81/85 combo is the best pickups ever made. Perfect for anystyle. I play classical 17th century style guitar and deathmetal and this guitar is perfect for both
Features
locking tuners ARE EPIC!! Stays in tune so well and changing strings takes 5 mins! just put the string through the tuner hole and turn the knob on the back and cut! So much easier than looping the strings around on normal tuners. Earvane Compensated nut, this thing makes every note stand out crystal clear and sharp. No dead spots. Tone pros bridge is always a go to!! Im not too much of a fan of floating trem,s
Ease of Use
esp doesnt set up your guitar at their factorys so youll have to find a guitar shop. Personally i know a luthier of 27 years so i took it to him, cost around 40$$ dont pay more than 40 or your gettin ripped off. after the setup it plays unbelievable!!! no string tension
Quality
Gorgeous finish!! this guitar is solid and made to last. I will be touring with this guitar in the future!! really stands out on stage
Value
would have paid over a grand and got it for only 750!!!!
The Wow Factor
seriously this guitar is ridiculous!!

"Great guitar!"
Sound
I have Gibson LP Studio and Fender Vintage 57 Hot Rod Stratocaster and i wanted to have guitar with hotter pickups. I was trying a lot of guitars at guitar shop but this guitar knocked me down. From rock to metal, this guitar can do everything. Fantastic playability, great neck and hot pickups, this is guitar from my dreams! I had a lot of guitars (ibanez prestige series, jackson`s, dean`s)but this guitar is better all the way. It sounds great at Marshall JVM205 amp but I was blown out when I plug it into the Cornford Roadhouse 50w head and 2x12 cab with V30 speakers. Magnificent
Features
Neck is great and fast, it is pleasure to play on it. Set thru and hard tail is great deal, finally you will never ever beg for little more sustain. :-) Binding is not for everyone, but i have not a problem with it.
Ease of Use
As I sad, this guitars sings through Marshall JVM 205 and Cornford Roadhouse 50 amps. Finally Cornford shows us all muscles he has and I could not left guitar from my hands ;-)
Quality
I do not see any problem with quality even it is made in Korea. Fro me is almost everything perfect...
Value
Try this guitar at guitar shop through some great amp and You will be more than satisfied. Great deal

I wanted so bad and now I can not take my hands from it :-) My favorite guitar

"Pretty darn good, with some comments"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
As far as playability this guitar is fantastic. I was a little disappointed with the fret board roto-zip thing and the setup being so far off out of the box, but in the grand scheme this thing should keep me happy for a long time.
Sound
My rig: Peavey 6505+ combo with 2x12 extension. Tubescreamer and crybaby in front, delay in the loop. This guitar sounds exactly how you would expect, very aggressive. I play in a rock cover band and use this for our heavy songs, sounds pretty much exactly how I wanted. The EMG’s cut like a knife in the mix. I gave it a 10 because it sounds how I expected it to sound, someone else may think it sounds horrible.
Features
It has some nice features for the price range. Tone-Pros locking bridge, ESP locking tuners, excellent EMG pickups. Dual adjusting truss rod in the neck.
Ease of Use
As far as playing the instrument, it's design is superb for speed and access to the upper registers. You can get all the way to the 24'th fret easily. There is hardly any heel at all to work around. The neck is thicker, almost strat thick, but it fits me personally very well. My expectations were exceeded in this area.
Quality
Middle of the road here for initial quality. Unfortunately the guitar arrived in desperate need of a setup. Fret buzz everywhere, unplayable. I suppose it could have been environmental but I don't think anyone bothered to check the setup before it was shipped to me. Nothing that couldn't be corrected. The other small complaint is the quality of the work between the frets on the edges of the fretboard. Upon close inspection it looks like they took a rotozip and ground down the ruff edges, leaving an uneven look to the board. You really can't feel it though, and you can't see it from a distance. Never seen anything like it on any of the guitars I've purchased over the years. They also only use one screw to hold the truss rod cover on the headstock. The bottom of the cover kind of sticks out as a result. Honestly how expensive could two screws be? Overall I expect this guitar to last pretty much forever with standard maintenance.
Value
Pretty good value I think. I looked at many guitars at this price point, and for me this was the best combination.
Manufacturer Support
Never dealt with them.
The Wow Factor
I love how this guitar looks. However I could understand if others were interested in a more subtle instrument. It may suffer from excessive "bling" with all the binding work.

"Disappointed, but in ESP, not Zzounds."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I had hoped this guitar would be like the E-II I had gotten from zZounds. On paper, it sounded good, all the right parts. And zZounds got me a great price and was outstanding in their support. But the finish, under the final clear coat, was terrible; I counted 15 cup-like holes in the black finish on a portion of the back alone (and just stopped looking any closer) and a deep scratch across the binding on the face. It was a new guitar, and zZounds promptly offered a return/replacement, but then it turned out they didn't have any more. It would have been a return only. I rationalized the finish problems away, only to discover that the nut was cut way too high. This makes the guitar only comfortably playable from like the third fret and higher. So I waited too long to return it and am faced with a remove/replace job on the nut, or a re-slotting job, and reslotting takes more skill and tools than a remove/replace. It is just sitting there now. When I did play it some, it sounded great, neck above fret 3 played nice, so the potential is there. Just pretty disappointed in the quality from ESP.after two other outstanding quality ESP guitars of recent purchase. I should have bought the F-350.
Sound
The EMG 81/85 combo is deservedly worthwhile. Great neck except as noted. Actually the overall guitar is nice and light, fits well. Sounds good, different from my usual passive pickups, but still good. I haven't played it for more than a few hours as yet due to previously mentioned nut problems.
Features
I like the string through body, although I wish the strings didn't touch the back of the bridge. They don't touch on my other guitars with a similar string though body feature. I might have to look at that later, but for now it doesn't seem to affect the sound. I thought the binding might be gaudy, but it looks good up close. I think this guitar could use the Graphtech ResoMax NV2 tune-o-matic bridge, rather than the bridge it has, as this would likely eliminate the strings-touching-back of bridge issue, and I like the string saver style.
Ease of Use
The neck and action above the 3rd fret are great. The guitar sounds good. It is my first active pickup ESP, the other two being passive.
Quality
Overall mechanical quality (excepting nut) is excellent. I think it should last quite a while.The strings touch the back edge of the bridge, so this might need attention later. The neck is nicely blended with the body, even though it is a set-through neck, not a neck-through. Finish was sub-standard, far below my other two ESP's.
Value
If the finish and nut deficiencies were not present, and assuming the bridge isn't a long term issue, this would be a great guitar. I can fix the nut; the finish I will just live with. The bridge I can replace at dead worst, but right now it is set up with near perfect neck action so I am loath to mess with it much.
Manufacturer Support
I have not (yet) dealt or communicated with ESP. I plan on it though.
The Wow Factor
It LOOKS great, has the right components, pickups are what I wanted, locking tuners, just needs some unexpected care. If I had to do it again, I would just buy the ESP F-350 though. But this is what I have, now and will work through the issues. Like I said, Zzounds got me a great price.

"Love this guitar!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This guitar has incredible tone and a very fast neck! Excellent for play heavy metal and hard rock! The EMG 81/85 combo is stellar and sounds amazing with my amp. Only downfall is that the battery compartment is not a latch release, so you have to use a screwdriver. But that has literally no negative impact on the product. I ordered it on Wednesday and received it Saturday morning, so shipping was fast and easy. And the play as you pay plan rocks! Keep up the great work!!
