Hello, I just wanted to let you know, I just un-boxed my second ESP purchase this year, a bass this time, the other, a H-1001 see thru green, and once again, I'm amazed!! I was a retailer from the late 60's, to the late 80's and have had hundreds, if not thousands of guitars go through my hands. Your instruments offer quality, and design, at a price that is just unbeatable! Before I purchase anything, I do O.C.D levels of research because I HATE being disappointed! More companies should operate like this!! Thanks for CRAFTING instruments for all of us to be able to express ourselves with, without limitations, and doing it without killing the bank account!! I may start working again, I use the term loosely, but if I do, these instruments will more than meet that challenge!!

Thanks again

VERY sincerely

Gary, Austin, Texas
