i just bought this item after being in love with it for like a year now lol. but i was really surprised when buzzing noise is coming from both pick ups ( i believe it s the cover thing) and that really disappointed me especially when you decide to pay more to get good quality. what to do in that case? can it be fixed? i sent many proof videos and voice notes to the dealer (thomann) and they asked me to wait further until they assess the issue. also i sent the same to the support team on this platform and haven t got any return message yet. what to do here?

Sorry you are having an issue, our customer service team is one of our busiest departments, it should note to allow up to 48 hours for them to respond.  Though with international sales there little they can offer in terms of direct solutions and it would be best for you to work with your local ESP distributor to rectify any issue you may have.

I have the same problem. Looks it only happen with metallic cover EMG pickups, because I change the pickups to plastic EMG (same set) and the noise have disappeared. It is not the first time that it happens, I also had that problem with some EMG JH metallic pickups and no matter what guitar I use them on, they always make the same noise.


Is there noise in both humbucker and single (split) coil configurations?

This must be a great guitar, I just don´t like the flagged inlays...
