ESP knocked one out of the park with this guitar! Solidly built, beautiful finish and a great pickup combination. The body is surprisingly light for mahogany. Very comfortable to play and the neck heel makes for easy access to the upper frets. With the coil splitting function, you have a wide tonal range. Lots of bang for the buck! Didn't really need any additional setup out of the box, but I'm very particular about my strings, so I changed those. Solid, solid instrument!
