One of those "chipsons" that have been made surprisingly well - perhaps by fluke. I needed a cheap well made guitar as a foundation to customise for myself. Will update once done.
This guitar has been honestly the most diverse, most smoothly-playing, and the most crisp guitar I have ever bought.Whether or not you buy the EC-256 or the EC-1000, you'll still get the sharp, kick-ass tone, and the amazing feel either way. I thoroughly recommend this guitar for anyone else considering ESP.
