      This is such a cool little guitar.
      It looks great and plays like a charm.
      I am 55 years old and purchased this for myself.
      I dropped the bridge down to the body and added Ernie Ball Extra Slinkys and it is smooth as silk.
      The minor fret edge roughness is really nothing, hey it's a inexpensive guitar not a PRS.
      As far as using it for a youngster this would be such a great item to receive.
      I was planning on replacing tuning keys and pickups, but after checking it out I will keep all of the original equipment intact.
      And it comes with a decent little gig bag.

      A big little guitar

      By Samantha Patterson

      from Santa Cruz, CA

      My spouse's mother has been wanting to learn to play guitar so over the holiday break, we hooked her up with a copy of Rocksmith and set her loose with my guitar. She spent much of the holiday engrossed but being a tiny lady, the weight and spacing of a full-sized guitar was a challenge so we went out in search of the perfect axe for her. In the 3/4 class we tried out the Squier, Ibanez, and this little ESP. The ESP sits a bit pricier than its competition but seems pretty worth it. For what it is, it's a great guitar. Let's start at the top! Of the three, the ESP has the best tuners by a mile. They feel really smooth and solid, the dark hematite colored finish is also a sharp touch. At 2hrs of light playing it is still squarely in tune Moving down: The ESP has a much more narrow neck than the other two with the Ibanez being the thickest. The back of the neck is smoother than the other two in part due to a gloss finish. The Squier was a bit rough and the Ibanez has a satiny finish. The fret edges on this guitar are smooth and flush where the Squier was merely OK and the Ibanez had some sharp edges. The fretboard also feels just a little bit smoother and a little better than either of the others though all three we looked at needed some oil. The neck is bolt-on with an adjustable truss but the setup at the store was already adjusted. Fret tuning stays solid on all strings down to the 24th fret after only very minor adjustment. One word of caution here. The frets are a little high and with the short neck, you can bend up a semitone if you really clamp down on the big E. This initially threw me but with a lighter touch, it plays quite nice and has no fret buzz. Body: Solid and super-light with totally metal styling. Knobs are the same hematite finish as tuners and feel nice and solid. Selector switch is solid. Pickups: Bridge humbucker, neck hotrails. It's nicely crunchy with no noise. It is also by far the loudest of the three. I had to double-check to believe they weren't active pickups. Of the three, the ESP sits in the middle for variety with the neck and bridge pickups on the Ibanez having the least variety and the Squier having much more range but also much more twangy and bright. Also worth noting the body is routered for a soapbar and a lipstick but has a frame for the humbucker so it would be pretty easy to hotrod the bridge pickup with anything you want. You can see the wires for the hotrails from the front and some kind of frame here might have been aesthetic but it's a quibble. A bigger concern might be that both pickups stick up about 2cm with only about 1cm of clearance between their tops and the strings. If you pick deep you're going to be forced into the channel between them. The jack is solid as was the Ibanez. The Squier felt a bit loose. The finish on all three guitars is solid and pretty comparable. The ESP does not have a pick guard. All in all, it's a very solid instrument for the size, a little more than the other two but in my opinion combines the better features of both. It's sharp looking and a lot of fun to play. Ever wished you could chord 1st and 6th fret at the same time? Here's your chance! :) Roundup: PROS: Smallest and lightest Good tuners Quality finish, sharp looks. Decent pickups, big sound. Easy to modify CONS: Deep frets Tall pickups

        I was looking for a good quality guitar for my 7 y/o son for guitar lessons. This guitar fit the gig and more. I myself play guitar and have an ESP, so I knew the type of quality and workmanship their guitars have. But I was really shocked when my son received this guitar. What a great find! The paint job was great along with the color. This guitar sounds great right out of the box. The pickups are good and the tone is clear and crisp when clean, and great crunch with gain. Very good action on it and the strings are easy to bend. Came with a gigbag that was sturdy. Overall something worth spending the money on. This is an instrument that will last until he needs to upgrade to a regular sized guitar. ESP is definitely the way to go. This is a great instrument that is well worth the money you will spend.

        This is a perfectly playable miniature guitar. Intonation and action= perfect. The pickups are fine, nice little hot rail type in the neck position! very versatile. Electronics work fine, no buzzing, no humming, stays in tune, thin neck, fast feel & 24 frets! So easy for a kid to play, my 5yr old and 8 yr old have no trouble fretting notes. This is a real and very playable little guitar. I could gig with it. the size is the best feature, kids have a very hard time on adult size guits,and most "kids" sized guitars are unplayable, horrible action, cant get them in tune, nothing more frustrating then doing things right and having it sound horrible.. It's hard enough learning an instrument.. don't make it harder on the kids then it has to be. buy this guitar!

        the REAL deal

        By jared churchill

        from lansing,Mi

        As a collector of all things mini, I saw this and decided to get one in the gunsmoke blue. I'm glad to see it came with a nice padded gig bag made for this series. MAN this thing is sweet. Exactly like the larger F type. the finish and color are flawless and looks lethal! I plugged it in and was shocked at how well the pups sounded,and after playing for 1/2 hour, it was still in tune. The best part is seeing peoples faces when you whip this out and summon the metal gods to lay waste to their minds!
