What is Player Grade?

Player Grade are brand new instruments that have gone through ESP's stringent quality control process to ensure excellent playability, but exhibit minor exterior cosmetic imperfection. They're an excellent value for players primarily concerned with playability, and who don't mind a minor blem. They're covered by the same warranty as our other instruments (with exception of the aforementioned cosmetic imperfection). We're very excited to now be able to get these guitars into the hands of avid players at a solid savings.
