This guitar take my attention because it's beatiful and it comes charged with Seymour Duncan JB on bridge position. Also the ebony fretboard, mahogany body, Gotoh tuners, split function over both pickups on tone knob, makes me decide to get this baby. It's made in Japan, with a very accurated work of construction. I like the thin neck and the finishing, that allows very fast movements back and forth when i am playing. It's a kind of heavy, but there are many other guitars heavier than my ESP out there. I'm very happy considering my purposes to this guitar. A standard/modern rock guitar with lots of versatility.
