"By This Ax(e) I Rule..."

15.03.2016
Now this one black beast in satin means a decent way towards the Metal. It is good quality, comfortable instrument with guttural sound and high output.

When you take this guitar, first thing what you notice is the rosewood fingerboard. I don't know what those ESP guys did, but it feels so smooth and comfortable. I have the guitar for 6-7 years and the fingerboard still looks like new. Combined with thin U neck it means only one thing - shredding. Very comfortable. The guitar fits perfectly between legs in sitting position. And if I put my left leg on a brick the playability is awesome. The guitar have strings going trough body, which means a longer sustain. I agree, I never had any issues with sustain of this instrument. The lh-150 pickups give enough of output to make your amp go Metal and it sounds dark, large and powerful. I'd swap only to over-200-Eur pickups. 25.5" neck takes the BEADF#B tuning nicely with 54-12 strings. And the shape of the guitar just screams: "take me and play me!"

Overall, if you have a desire to practice Doom, Sludge, Stoner or Death metal technical shredding, ax-50 would not disappoint you.

Great beginner metal guitar

Saad C., 11.01.2014
Great guitar for metal beginners. Lightweight with thin neck, and a quality finish. Fits perfectly in the lap at 45 degrees because of the axe shape. The jack placement becomes rather uncomfortable in that case, but getting an angled connector solves that problem too.
