This new model looks great and has impressive specifications. Just about everything I would want if I went for a custom job. Hope I get to see this at a music shop to try out. Thanks for keeping that hot rod Strat style going, one of my favorite types of guitar. This is where ESP/LTD is expanding the evolution & design of guitar making.

Just wanted to give you a little push

 

This arrived at my house 2 days ago. Literally out of the box this is automatically my favorite guitar I've ever had. Wow. I was thinking everything you said, but I decided to just order it. I promise, if you roll the dice on this online order, you will absolutely not be disappointed. It was setup perfect and didn't even need to be tuned. 

PAUL C.

@Petr, glad you like your new guitar bro! I may pull the trigger on this, seems lower in price now too. But glad I was able to help you out with my words. Choosing the right axe is a personal decision and it definitely takes a lot of time to think it through. I overthink before I commit to buying, and those I passed on are not even afterthoughts now so I know I made the right decision. Enjoy your new axe and don’t forget God made Rock n’ Roll for you!

Just picked one of these up, really love it!

Pictures don't do the finish justice. Most photos make the paint look flat bright white, but it is is an off-white pearl color with a beautiful texture to it. It has little flecks in it that give it a bit of sparkle at an angle without being too flashy. I love that the pickguard is matte finish as well, it's a great contrast.

So far, I'm really pleased, you can go full shred with 24-fret access and locking tremolo, or tap into that single coil sound and tackle classic rock, blues, funk. Truly versatile guitar with classic yet aggressive looks!

Setup was good out of the box, I tightened up the spring tension just a tad to correct about a degree or two of float angle and adjusted for a bit more relief on the neck, but that's expected after shipping, changing climates and letting the wood adjust. String height and intonation were spot on.

glad you're enjoying it and thanks for sharing

Hi. Can you tell me if the thin u neck contour starts narrow and gets wider? I’ve played a Music Man evh and axis for years. Recently got Charvel SC1 but the neck is a bit wide from 1st to 5th fret but I got used to it. Is this ESP neck somewhere between the two I have? I love everything else about this model. 

Carl N.

All necks will start narrow at the nut then widen as is goes down the fingerboard.  I cannot speak about the charvel but this will be 42mm at the nut and widen to about 57mm at the end of the fingerboard

I really like this guitar! I love pearl white and seafoam green. Those 2 colors have sort of become my "signature" colors. I'm not sure about the "roasted" maple because I prefer regular maple or rosewood to ebony. I wish it was guardless though. I would really like to try this but have my eye on another brand with the zebra-style pups.

Carl N.

Thanks for sharing!

I'm not familiar with the SE bridge. Is it much different than the Floyd Rose special?

Carl N.

You can view it as an upgraded FR special

Larry M.

You won't really notice a difference. I think the 1000 has somewhat thicker fine tuners and a handle that supposed to have zero play in it.
