One of my favorites and I own guitars worth 4 times as much.

This is my 3rd Eii series this year and the quality is horrible!  The black finger syndrome is real!  Seriously, don’t know how far I’ll have to go to alleviate getting my fingers covered in black stain.    I’m probably going to take this one to a luthier to help, as I’m keeping this one because I bought it cheap.  Unfortunately, ESP does not own this problem and provide a fix other than Dunlop 65.  Disappointed!

I can see a USA M-1 in my immediate future.

Do no hesitate.   Preorder this or get a used one if you can't wait.   I couldn't, and I'm glad that I didn't 

Awesome fit, finish, feel.   THIS is how a guitar is supposed to feel.

Got a great deal on one local here.   

Are the fret dots abalone?

Can't wait to get this!
