  • Forget about this price - this is an AMAZING guitar

    As reviewed by Winterland on 1/28/2011

    I've had my lovely metallic red PS-1 for about 8 months. I admired these online for almost 2 years before I finally found one to play. I was concerned that the price indicated the quality. When I did finally find one I could pick up and play - I was blown away with the first strum and bought it on the spot. Until I bought this guitar, my primary guitar was a vintage, American-made Gibson SG Special, and I almost never pick that up anymore. This guitar looks amazing, and the tone is just phenominal. I use 10 gage flatwounds on it, and the action playing flats on this guitar is really just sweet. The guitar plays great, has a gorgeous natural sustain and is the favorite in my collection - though I recently picked up another excellent guitar (to remain unnamed here) for about 10 times the price. When I was trying to find a physical specimen of the PS-1 to play, I told a salesmen at one store that I was looking for one, and he asked me why I was looking for this guitar that I've never seen or heard. When I mentioned the price he told me, "That's just disappointing that ESP is selling guitars that cheap." Like I said, the price will pique your interest, but forget about it. This guitar holds its own against all of those ungodly expensive guitars, has a character all its own, and will have you doing crazy things like writing reviews of it so others will know it is an unbelievable deal. All that said, the only thing I concern myself with about this guitar is that at some point the nut may need replacing. I say that only because it is plastic - not because it's showing any wear or negatively affects the tone. The electronics are excellent and responsive - which, other than the feel of this guitar was my biggest pleasant surprise. If you're reading this - just go get it. You will be happy for a long time afterward!

  • Great Deal

    As reviewed by Morse on 8/3/2011

    This is a great guitar for the money. Very high quality with a lot of tones. As some of the reviews said this guitar is way more versatile than a lot of other typical guitars. Made in Indonesia, the neck is amazing and the finish on it is too. Can tell it was made in a state of the art factory. Have other semi-hollow and they all sound different so this has its place easily in that family. The humbuckers are a little dark sounding but you can adjust them easily by other means.

  • Beautiful

    As reviewed by Jacob on 6/12/2009

    I have owned this guitar for a little over a year now, it is everything I hoped it would be and more. Incredible low-action, smooth neck, full-bodied sound, and amazing acoustics. My one complaint is that the left audio wire snapped off, but I re-soldered it and it works perfect again. Every one of my friends who picks up this guitar absolutely loves it, and I do too.
