Plays and sounds great, all I needed to do was tune up. Intonation near-perfect after a month in a cardboard box. laugh.gif

Yeah, pickup selector is at an awesome place too; just a quick flick of the hand away.

That's ESP for you laugh.gif even though my intonation was off, it was the store guy who doesn't know how to setup guitars so it was really him who put the intonation off, and it added to my ESP having a floyd rose tongue.gif But, since getting my first floyd rose, I've experimented a lot on guitars, I setup my guitars myself now biggrin.gif

By the way, is that an EMG 81 85 pair? Because I see a golden "EMG" logo on the bridge pickup tongue.gif I may be just color blind laugh.gif

Those would be both EMG 81 pickups or 81/60 setup most likely?

Sweet looking axe, love the details. If it sounds as good as it looks, wow! Have fun with it.

Nice!!! That's even more rare than my monster guitar esp smile.gif Only 150 of those biotech vampire guitars on Earth. Quite rare and spiff at the same time smile.gif Good call! I"m eyeballing some of the other Graphic Series as well. They all look darn cool and there are only a few of them. The predator and white zombie guitars are limited to like 50 units each. Egad I'm turning in to a Guitar Collector!

Nice design! I too like the placement of the knobs, some guitars the knobs get in the way when playing! A demo would be nice

Yes it happens but it's a good thing sometimes - for example when You study Jeff Beck playing using volume knob and whammy bar at the same time smile.gif

Single cuts = 24.75"
Explorers and V's (most of them) = 24.75"
ESP Viper = 24.75"
Super Strats = 25.5"

ESP loves shorter scale length it seems huh.gif

Well said! smile.gif I've got a ESP/LTD super start so it's 25.5 like two Ibanez Guitars. That's my fav scale length currently. The shorter scale lengths do allow for a pinch more string wag so vibrato gets a bit easier to control than it would be on say a 27 scale. IMHO making for a more expressive instrument.
