ESP E-II Arrow SW
Matt56, 25.01.2021
Je possède 3 ESP E-II Arrow, (1 noir, 1 blanche et 1 7 cordes) et une ltd Arrow

Je commence par expliquer pour quoi je n'ai mis que 4 étoiles en qualité de fabrication, car a plus de 2000 euros, selon moi, on est en droit d’exiger la perfection. On en est pas loin, mais ce n'est pas tout à fait le cas.

Comme je disais, je possède 2 autre E-II Arrow, donc je sais à quelle niveau de finition m'attendre. Mes deux autres sont irréprochables, celle ci avait quelques petits défauts à la reception.

1: Le potard de volume état cassé, je doute fortement que soit sorti d'usine comme ca, et il me semble aussi que Thomann doit contrôler la marchandise avant d'expédier, je doute fortement que ce soit passé inaperçu, je dois en déduire que ceci a eut lieu pendant le transport entre thomann et chez moi, malgré l'étui, il se peut que si il y a eut d'autres colis lourds d'empilé dessus pendant le transport, le potard a pu cassé de cette manière. Etant donné que j'avais des potards emg a la maison, j'ai choisi de le remplacer et de ne rien dire.

2: La finition des frettes était bien mais un peu en dessous de mes 2 autres guitares du même modèle, malgré que c'était pas mal, on voit que le polissage aurait pu être un peu plus soigné.

3: Au niveau de la reliure entre le manche et la touche, aux alentours de la 1ere et deuxieme frette, on voit que la reliure à été légèrement limé, sans doute lorsque le fabriquant arrondissait les bords de frettes a la lime, il a du déborder un peu, ça se voit de prés selon l'éclairage mais ce n'est pas catastrophique.

4: La pointe de la tete, la reliure déborde légèrement, ca se voit de très prés et se sent au toucher.

A la reception, ayant constaté ces défauts, je songeais à renvoyer la guitare, j'ai fini par la garder pour les raisons suivantes:

Tout comme mes deux autres E-II Arrow, le reste de la finition est impeccable, le son est au top, le manche c'est du beurre, bref si on ferme les yeux sur les petits défauts, oui c'est un instrument a 2000 euros, je possède aussi une ltd arrow, et cette E-II est quand meme nettement au dessus, elle sonne bien, elle est super agréable à jouer, elle est trop belle...

Je dois en conclure que les petits défauts sont une exception, car comme je disais mes autres E-II sont irréprochables.

Mon conseil, contrôlez la lors de la réception, il ne devrais pas avoir de défauts, s'il y en a, n’hésitez pas a renvoyer, il est peu probable que vous ayez 2 d'affilé avec des défauts.

Wie erwartet original ESP Qualität
MK86, 12.09.2020
Sound: Klassischer EMG 81 Sound halt, den ich auch unbedingt haben wollte und Sustain ohne Ende.

Bespielbarkeit: Wie bei allen ESP's einfach Mega. Kenne keine Gitarren Marke die sich besser bespielen lässt.

Performance: Hier muss man bedenken es sich nicht so schön im sitzen spielen lässt im Vergleich zu anderen Modellen, aber das sollte jedem klar sein, bevor er sich eine V-Form holt.

Verarbeitung: Hier schleift bei mir leider der Volume Knopf ab und zu am Holz, aber das ist kein Grund sie zurück zu senden, in einem Monat hat sich das beigeschliffen ;-) Auch die Plastikkappe um den Klinke-Anschluss steht etwas raus, aber ob das überhaupt anders machbar ist, kann ich nicht sagen. Dennoch hat mich das etwas entäuscht, daher ein Punkt abzug.

Die Gitarre ist mit 9er Saiten und Standard Stimmung gekommen und war auch einwandfrei eingestellt. Ich habe jetzt 11er mit einer 52er oben drauf gezogen und spiele sie in Drop C. Die Gitarre lässt sich ohne Probleme Einstellen. Habe von Halskrümmung über FLoyd Rose und Intonation alles neu eingestellt und das war überhaupt kein Problem, was auch wieder für die Verarbeitung spricht. Spiele mit einer recht niedrigen Saitenlage und es schnarrt und scheppert nichts. Also top Qualität !
