Superb guitar
Ivo T., 29.01.2021
Got mine a week ago and i can say that it is absolute MONSTER.
Looks nothing like the pictures - it so MUCH MORE.
1. The side colour is not white - its ivory.
2. The finish is so much better than in the pictures
3. BE CAREFUL - As the official site states the neck pickup is 60-7 not 707- i havent removed it but the EMG logo is in blue-ish silver color.
4. I was very lucky cause the guitar i received is from Korea
5. The fretboard is nothing like in the pictures - it so much darker and beautiful!
So, pros and cons:
+ :
1. It looks god damn amazing
2. Sounds superb - those EMG's are killers
3. The finish is superb - i haven't found a flaw yet
4. The neck is perfect for me - it's not too wide and it is very fast and comfortable
- :
1. There seems to be a dissonance with the guitar on the 15+ frets. It is like something is resonating almost with the same freq as those frets - but that is only with the neck pickup - nothing is heard on the bridge one.
2. Tuners are superb - they are GROVER's but I am lowering a point for features cause they could have put Locking tuners in - I mean c'mon
Overall:
Fantastic guitar which feels and sounds superb, great for every guitarist on every level

If you need a round "Death Metal" sound and powerful mics this can be a very good deal.

vagdaniels, 30.10.2017
The guitar looks and feels great but I can't review the sound before a proper set-up. Unfortunately it's unplayable when straight out of the box. I've never played a guitar with so much fret buzz before. The first 2-3 frets make no sound at all, and the first 7-9 frets have a huge amount of fret buzz (I think some frets are a bit popped out). Also the intonation is a mess but this is something I can fix my self. I bought this from Thomann because it was cheaper from my local shop, but now I'll spend these money on a luthier. Other than that it arrived fast, well packaged, with no sign of damage.
I will edit this review after the set-up.

Perfect
Aleksandar J., 21.12.2014
For this price, this is an awesome guitar, I play it in Drop G for now. With a 0.80 string on Top. It just feels so great. I would extremely recommend it for low tuning, heavy music. From B Standard to drop G, I would not recommend going lower.
And it just looks so sexy... the finish...and the shape of the guitar are great. *_*
It has this "fast" neck, witch means, that the backside of the neck is not painted with bright enamel, or varnish, it's actually satin too, which allows you to slide very fast up and down the neck.
Adding to this, the playability is a dream, the thin U neck is very comfortable.
Quality for this price is great, I own a ec-401 for 4 years now, I played it a lot, and it's still doing a great work.
Finally the sound is just kicking ass.
