I jus just got mine.  And man let me just say this guitar is incredible.  Plays so good and is fast af. Only grip I have is there is a line down the middle of the body.  Where they joined the body together.  Is this typical on all these models or is it just the one I have?

Hi Rahtchee , Thanks for your comments and review. Glad to hear you like the guitar. Yes it is common for the glue lines to show on guitars. Whenever 2 or more pieces of wood are joined together and glued and painted over, every material is susceptible to changing temperature and humidity, etc. So it is normal to see the wood grain or joint lines under the paint. It's not anything to be worried about.

Thank you.

Hey! E-II guitars are truly some of the most beautiful guitars with prettymuch the highest quality on the planet. But theres something missing! More and more manufacturers are starting to use stainless steel frets on their higher end guitars. They are just superior since their fretjob lasts far longer than nickel could imagine. Is E-II line ever going to see the upgrade to them?

HI Raveeh, Thanks for your comments. It's quite possible certainly and I appreciate you bringing this up.

Hello. I am thinking of buying this beautiful guitar through sweetwater.  They  offer free setup and tuning of any guitar above $299. So, my question is. 

Do you guys trust sweetwater to setup a guitar such as the fr7 or should I just bring it to my local guy whom I already trust. 

Thanks, richy.

I've bought two guitars from Sweetwater and paid for the Plek setup on both. From those two, it was totally worth it. It's amazing being able to just play a FR guitar right out of the box without dealing with a re-string/setup. That said, I don't think I'd PAY for a setup from them without the Plek treatment. Any of the Korean/USA/Japanese ESP play amazing right from the factory. The value would be if you wanted a different gauge string (or Plek). 

Free is free though. Go for it!

Thanks for your input Nathan! Glad to hear about your experience.

Hi Rahtchee, First of all sorry for this late reply. I see from another user's comment that Sweetwater does an excellent setup job. I would absolutely trust Sweetwater to perform a setup on your instrument. They have great service techs at their facility so it's a great service they offer.

Rahtchee

Thanks to you both. I appreciate the input.

I placed an order on one of these back in February and have been checking up on the status of the order multiple times and the shipping date always gets pushed back every time. Last time I checked I was told mine would ship on the 29th of April but every single time I was told it would ship around a certain day it always gets pushed back. When I check back on the day of or around to confirm. Are distributors not receiving enough supply of these? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Oscar, Thanks for posting your issue here. The E-II models have been on backorder especially for the new models. Please let me know what dealer and distributor you placed your order through so I can look into it for you. You can send me a private message. Thanks and hang in there, hopefully your guitar will get to you soon.

Hi Jose, thanks for your question. Unfortunately we are not able to take special orders or requests for any different spec than our standard build spec.
