I bought this guitar for 100 dollars 110 after tax. The pickups are hot and high output for passives, the tone is excellent, everything i would expect from a guitar in this style. It is heavy weight wise, just like an LP or single cutaway of a similar build, this helps its overall sound quality, it is thinner profile than an LP so a little more comfort there. Full 24 frets and this is a great selling point for me as it has an advantage over the 22 fret LP but the scale length remains the same. For the money it is a pheonomenal axe.
This is my first real guitar. I use this thing for everything I do. Mainly because it's the only axe I have but also because It just feels great! I sat down in a big guitar store and I didn't leave until i got hold of the best guitar i Could buy for my budget. I tried out everything from Epiphone to Ibanez and nothing felt as good as the EC-10. The neck profile is really nice and it could sound very bright and cutting but also very warm when you needed it to sound like that.
