Great rock guitar
11.01.2016
Firstly a comment on the Evertune bridge. It takes a little bit of setting up but once the time is invested adjusting the tuning and intonation (the action was spot on out of the box) the guitar simply does not go out of tune. Ever.

The guitar itself is quite heavy (even with the extra routing needed for the Evertune). Certainly heavier than a US made LP with modern weight relief. There's a beautiful flamed maple top that is completely wasted under the see-through black finish, as you can only see it when the light is right, but otherwise it looks a quality guitar. The neck is clearly build for speed (although not as skinny as a Ibanez wizard for example it's wider and slimmer than a traditional Les Paul "slim 60s" neck) and the ebony 'board and really well dressed jumbo frets make for a very slick playing experience. The belly cutaway is a very welcome addition on a Les Paul shape.

The unamplified sound is quite woody and there's bags of sustain, however plugging in the clean sounds are a little disappointing. Once you add a bit of dirt, though, things come alive. This guitar is clearly meant for rock and for overdriven tones. The JB pickup in the bridge does a supercharged Les Paul sound and the neck gets you into Slash territory without ever sounding woolly.

So overall a brilliant playing guitar that doesn't quite have the versatility of a more vintage-y Les Paul, but I guess that's not ESP's target market. The USP of the Evertune bridge makes it worth every penny/cent.

Super guitar with small drawback
20.06.2016
I got the EC-1000 with evertune today. After approximately 30min the Evertune Bridge then set the first test: As expected, the SH-4 sounded crisp and in the bass range very controlled.
The whole is supplemented with an SH-2 in the neck position. This sings beautifully and can be used for Solis and Clean played parts super.
The only drawback I have to suspend is that at the highest string from about the 12th Bund the sustain decreases very audibly. So if you want to play long sustained tones up there, then have to touch something more than usual;).
Otherwise, I am totally satisfied with the guitar.

Edit:
The spots on my guitar are so-called dead spots. I do not know whether this is often the case with this model or whether it is an individual case. The spot is around the tone A. The higher this A the worse. I am avoiding the problem by using the guitar almost exclusively for rhythm guitar or very deep moods (drop B or lower). For this it works absolutely super with the Evertune Bridge.
