I bought this after I returned one other very popular single cut lower budget guitars (let's not name it but say it is first on the single cut guitar sales list). The finish is definitely better on the latter one (even though I love mat on this one), but everything else far surpasses on this guitar. It is just incredible bang for buck.
You can say this is the perfect starter guitar if you love the active pickup sound. Clearly a copy of the ESP LTD EC-1000. I will have to play the latter one to compare them.
Active pickups, mat color, gold hardware, grover tuners, sturdy pickup switch, quality strings, useful pots, good nut, rosewood neck, strap locks, and so on and so on. Everything well put together and I couldn't be happier. Definitely better than anything else in it's price range and competes with guitar twice it's price (or so they say).

The best for the price (IMNHO)

First the nice touches provided by Thomann - D'addario strings and a battery, and also the strap locks and each Grover tuner wrapped in cellophane. Plus the whole guitar was very well packaged for protection against the elements and handling by the delivery services

This guitar looks better in real life, is nicely weighty, and feels immediately comfortable. The neck is great, no sharp fret edges that I got on a previous, lower cost Harley Benton Les Paul (but a minor issue), and the set-up needs little to no attention for my tastes.

The neck might be fast but it plays at the same speed as me which is a bonus. I am not 100% sure how much difference the active pickups make given the few controls but the sound is strong and can go raw or warm. If, like me, you use a pedal or two then the advantage of active pups is probably diminished.I guess that will differ by the equipment used.

I am really happy with this guitar and for the price and the Thomann service, I could not beat it elsewhere. It was delivered to the UK within two days of ordering, which again is excellent and at a bargain price.
