Overview

As lead guitarist for legendary thrash metal band Testament, Alex Skolnick has high standards for his instruments. So, it's no surprise that the result of his collaboration with ESP has produced some incredible instruments that are equal parts shred-happy, great-sounding, easy to play and durable.

The AS-1 is the stripped-down, entry-level model of Skolnick's signature models, but it's still an instrument capable of greatness. It offers a mahogany body with a maple top finished in silverburst, set mahogany neck, 24.75" scale and 22 extra-jumbo frets on a rosewood fingerboard on a U-shaped neck. And a pair of Seymour Duncan SH-4 (B) & SH-1 (N) pickups pushes killer tone down your signal path. A TonePros tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece anchor the strings to the body while Gotoh tuners keep everything cinched down and in-tune through heavy crunches and string-stretching leads.

Comments about ESP LTD AS-1 Alex Skolnick Electric Guitar:

HOLY DAYUM, this guitar isn't meant for everybody as Alex said himself. This thing is a monster. Was a little skeptical before buying it but i took a chance and it was one of the best decisions i ever made. The tone is insane, the silver sunburst is beautify, the attention to detail is amazing. Great Guitar!!!!!!

    Comments about ESP LTD AS-1 Alex Skolnick Electric Guitar:

    Bought this guitar sight unseen. Based my purchase off of video demos, the spec sheet, and a few reviews I'd seen. I'd owned the ESP LTD EC1000T previously, but was never satisfied with the sounds I got from it - too mushy, no edge to it. This one promised improved pickups, push/pull coil tapping, and it just looks amazing, so when I saw a deal on Guitar Center for a used one, I took the gamble. I've owned many Epiphone, ESP, and Fender guitars but I must say this is my new favorite. Love it. Some reviews described this guitar as, "being built like a tank," but that just refers to the high quality and sturdiness of the build; it actually weighs less than my telecasters and other LPs. The only upgrade I'd consider at this point would be some locking tuners, but it wouldn't be necessary even. Sonically, visually, tangibly it's fantastic. Highly recommended.
