What kind of ebony and alder..?

David S.

Hello ESP, I would like to know how this neck is compared with an ESP V-II Standard?, thanks.

Todd B. ESP

Hi David, Both necks have the same neck profile which is our "Thin U".

Hello! I've just purchased this guitar from a local dealer, and I love everything about it except for one thing, which is the lack of a tone knob. I was just curious if there was a reason for leaving that out? Thanks for any input!

Well i can answer this it was built to be used for a hard rock or heavy metal type style playing.Kirk Hammet of metallica is know for using the m-2 without a tone nob.I use a marshall n i use reverb and reduce the bass n treble to counter the lack of tone.Just tweak with ur amp if you like tone n it will all work out but remember 81s have a bigger bite than a 60.

Hello Todd,

Thank you for the response, I appreciate the clarity! It makes sense, especially with the guitar being marketed as a pure shredding machine (which it does extremely well). Was just a personal hang up as I like having a bit of dynamic control, but obviously not a deal breaker at all as I still bought it and love the guitar.  

Also I was able to add some more dynamic to the sound by swapping the 81 in the neck for an EMG 85 and now the guitar is perfect for me! Thanks again for producing such a quality product! This marks my third ESP product, (first non-LTD) and it's everything I could have hoped for!

Hi Egitel,  great to hear your additional comments about this guitar and glad you love it!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Egitel, Thanks for posting your feedback. This model includes only the simplest of controls. Many players do not use the tone control, so we designed this guitar with simplicity in mind. Single volume with switch. We offer many guitars with tone controls but this is one of the few with no control. It should not be looked at as a feature missing, rather a problem solved for those who do not wish to have a bunch of controls they don't use.

Is it theoretically possible to have this model in Satin finish and with passive electronics?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Elias, We currently don't offer the model you are requesting and our standard product line cannot be customized from the original spec.
