First off, Thank you to AxePalace for running such an amazing business and supplying some of the most amazing instruments I've ever played and seen! Also their customer service is top notch. This is the first ESP USA guitar I've owned and dear lord its a pleasure to play! I've been an Ibanez guy all my life and I was going between gibson and ESP, then this showed up on my facebook feed and I couldn't help myself. Cheers!
