I bought this guitar ~5 years ago as my first electric guitar and I still use it to this day

A Left-Handed version of this would be killer. Could we shoot for that.

Just got this guitar and absolutely love it. Is there a specific cleaner to remove fingerprints? I've never had an instrument with the satin finish and don't want to damage it 

Todd B. ESP

Hi, we do not recommend frequent polishing of a satin finish. The more you polish the finish, the shinier it will become. Use a clean dry cloth or a slightly damp cloth with light pressure. You can use a standard guitar spray polish but go lightly, and wipe clean and dry immediately. Do not use any compound or abrasive polish.

You can find our general  guidelines in our owner's manual on our website support section here: https://cdn.connectsites.net/user_files/esp/site_assets/000/000/436/original.pdf

I'd like to see a stripped down TE401B. 27" scale with an inverted head stock. Just the emg 81 at the bridge a volume knob and a two way toggle kill switch at the top like the 3 way switch on the EC models

Todd B. ESP

Thanks for suggesting that.
