    Such a sweet guitar! It's to bad esp doesn't use their actual name on the majority of their guitars.

    Yeah. I think Gibson needs to only put their name on custom shop guitars and all the factory USA guitars should be called G2 or G II.

    The same with Fender. Only custom shop guitars can be called Fender. The USA factory models all have to be called F2. And the Mexican models F3. And the Japanese models F4.

    I'm receiving this guitar this week, I can't wait! Really excited to also try the Black Winter.
    I'm just getting back into guitar after a long hiatus. Just gonna be running it thru the Fortin NTS suite plugin.

    Don't be, they're quite friendly and hardly ever bite.

    Quick update. I set it up in Standard D and holy mother of Christ is this guitar mean sounding. I knew what the Black Winter was capable of, having one in my Alexi-600, but there is something about this guitar that just makes it sound next level somehow. I just can't get enough. Running it through a Mark V and Dual Rec is just pure chaos, in a good way.

    Ask and you shall receive. I do not have the best recording setup but it will give you an idea.

    Thanks! There is a left and right track for both the Mark V and the Dual Rec. The lead part is just the Mark V. I guess it sounds allright for something I whipped out in an hour.

    How would you describe the neck? I know it is labeled as an Extra Thin U. Is it comparable to anything?

    Also how's the BW? Is it good for riffing and palm muting? I had a set in my Jackson and didn't like em so I took them out because I didn't feel there was enough low end and such, but the cleans and leads sounded alright

    I love the neck on this. It's up there with Charvel's neck for me. It may be called extra thin but there is still some meat on there. Definitely not as thin as Ibanez. My Jackson Dinky has a thinner neck than this. This one is extremely comfortable to play, for me anyway.

    I think the video showed that the BW can riff. I have one in my Alexi-600 and that guitar is tuned to Drop C. The BW sounds awesome in that one has well. I guess it really depends on your amp and the sound you are going for.
