amazing tone !!!

selby, 03.02.2018
I use it in gigs , this guitar suits best for rock to heavy metal genre. sounds great both on mini amp whilst practicing and on relatively bigger amp during gigs. its so comfortable if you're a lead guitarist due to its narrow neck , it helps for fast licks and runs and also its tone back it up for heavy riffing
I am really happy with this guitar.

A great ax

Michael W. 321, 30.06.2013
It is my first Ltd I have grown to. I had seen the AJ-1 on Youtube with the excellent Andy James. At this time, there were only English and American reviews and opinions about this ax. I prefer Strat? Models and also the new EMG`s had irritated me to choose this guitar as a purchase.
When it was delivered with DHL, my heart was already a little faster.
But now back to the Ltd. Since I ordered the AJ-1 at the same time with a suitable case (Thomann) was the package a little bigger. A very good packaging which was sealed with stains needed a time to be opened. The guitar pack was first removed from the large packaging and opened? Oh my God? Hammerteil ...!

Even the first lifting from the packaging was pleasant and very familiar. The dull black paint made me immediately; Since she was not so well recognizable on pictures, I told myself that I had already done everything right in this respect.

1. The strings had to be new and the bridge had to be a little down, because the string position was too high for me.
2. Cable pure, Amp on, Distortion Canel, Gain fully torn and ???
Exactly this sound I had searched. Switching from EMG 57 (B) to 66 (N) was also not homogeneous, so that there was an audible difference between the two. The sublime, creamy sound of the 66ger convinced me totally.
3. I was enthusiastic about the Ltd locking mechanisms. Max twice to vote, everything is good.
4. Since the fingerboard felt very dry, I got a thin layer with lemon oil.
5. Also the habit at the neck profile was madly fast in accordance with my playing behavior bring.
6. When playing in standing position, it is supple and pleasant to the body. You always have a good overview on frets and switching this ax.
7. Yesterday was the first day where I took her to the promenade. Only a few settings at the AMP had to be made, but only minimally as the EMG in the middle sound very powerful. After 10 minutes playing with the band nodded me my "playmates? Positive and said that she is very good at emphasizing and a self-assured but powerful sound.

I can even make friends with the idea of ??posting the AJ-1 as the main ax. Solopassages on the lower frets need a few days of training since they are XJ frets. But this is every instrument value to put a little time into the handling.
In my opinion it is worthwhile at the ESP Ltd AJ-1 in any case to put as much time into the instrument as is only possible. The AJ-1 has a very thorough and clean processing. I could not discover a shortage in the near future. ESP Ltd has created a low-cost and high-quality instrument with the AJ-1, which will convince every guitarist. It is also necessary to emphasize that the instrument is designed for the tougher gait.

I am very happy with my decision to get it to me. A recommendation for every guitarist who is looking for a new challenge; He will not be disappointed.
