Amazing guitar!

12.11.2016
I had been wanting to get a Les Paul shaped guitar for some time until I found this badass beauty! Its sharper look captivated me.
I wanted a guitar which had passive pickups that sounded great for Blues and Metal. I was also looking for something that looked more modern than the classic Les Paul.
As my experience with ESP LTD guitars hasn't let me down, I had to go for it!

THE GOOD STUFF! :

The gold hardware and pickups and yellow contour around the guitar really stand out from the impeccable black sat background, creating a visually very pleasing guitar!

These Seymour Duncan pickups are amazing for not only Blues or Jazz but for Rock and Metal too! (I've even Djented on them ;D). The JB sounds great in gainy setups and personally, while soloing, I change between both as I find the '59 a darker sounding pickup especially for the lower notes. They both sound great and organic in clean setups.

The thin "U" profile of the neck makes it very comfortable to play and it?s very easy to move around the fretboard. It is also very easy to play the very high notes as the neck-body joint doesn't get in the way at all.

The locking machine heads are great and so are the Tone Pros Bridge and tailpiece and haven't given me any problems. Both quality components.

The volume and tone knobs are spot on; they have a perfect amount of resistance when turning them round as it can be unpleasant if they are too flimsy.

THINGS TO BE AWARE OF:

After playing for a long while it is recommended to keep stuff clean; it may come without saying, but the bridge and pickup covers can get mucky after long sessions of palm-muting wizardry and if not wiped regularly, the gold hardware may start to fade. In fact, it does wear a bit on the bridge but if kept in order it is hardly noticeable. You can always replace components.

Good all-rounder with focus on metal

Alexander O. 928, 07.05.2015
The decor is great. Seymour Duncan JB and jazz sound very natural and powerful. The locking mechanisms are my highlight. One saves the annoying knot and wound when pulling the string.

The Potis are

Volume for pickup neck

Volume for pickup bridge

Sound for both.

You turn the gain on the amp fully, the volume for the bridge pickup a bit down and you have the change to the solo / neck pickup the desired Soloboost. Cool!

The Halls is not as ultra-fast as an Ibanez and also not as thick as the standard strate neck. I had to get used to it but find it very well now! Quasi, he is not so thin that one has too little compensation for proper bendings and also not so thin that he feels slow.

The sustain is long and gentle. The choice of wood is reflected in the warm, powerful and bass sound. Excellent!

Unfortunately the guitar was not well adjusted. Neither the curvature nor the string height nor the height of the pickups. I had to bring them to an instrument maker and have them set up. He said this also belonged to the frets. Where you have to say that it is only a clanking of the strings on the cymbals and that also occurs only in some places. If this does not interfere with the factory setting.

The finish is very clean. Everything sits and fits neatly apart from one of the Potidrehknöpfe, which is something wrong and does not want to be straight ^ ^. But is not at the Poti, that is straight.

I would buy the guitar again! BUT this time the setting service from Thomann to take.
