The ESP XTone PA-1 guitar from the Paramount series gives you the best of both worlds: acoustic and electric. It features the XTone semi-acoustic body and the built in B-Band Electret Film transducer pickup system that gives a tone sweet enough for the most heart wrenching rock ballad. The lightweight, semi-hollow body is made out of mahogany and is finished in black with chrome hardware. The look is completed with pearl and abalone block inlays and triple layered binding on the body, neck and headstock.

Wonderful sound, great action

By stan duffendack

Comments about ESP Xtone PA-1 Paramount Series Semi-Acoustic Guitar:

I heard a pro musician playing this guitar and was immediately struck by the sound. I spoke with the musician, and he said he really liked the action. That did it. I went out that weekend and ordered one. It's everything I hoped it would be...great sound, good action. The fit and finish is acceptable. I noticed some roughness on the wood inside the body (attention to detail). But the workmanship is good, no flaws. But it plays like a dream. I hadn't played in 20-some years, but I'm inspired and back into it now. Good axe. Don't know that I've heard a better electric at any price! Just one man's opinion, but I'm a happy camper.

Not Quite What I Expected

By Ry

from Houston, TX

Comments about ESP Xtone PA-1 Paramount Series Semi-Acoustic Guitar:

I wanted a backup acoustic-electric, and thought this guitar seemed like a reasonable-yet-fun option. Other than the typical sloppy construction quality that is to be expected from instruments mass made overseas, it's a pretty decent little guitar. I enjoy the slim design and the semi-acoustic body, but there are two things that make me unhappy with this guitar. The first is when plugging into a mixer, the signal is very weak. Apparently you need a preamp, even though it uses a 9 volt battery. Which brings me to issue #2 - To change the battery, you have to unscrew a cover on the back. Seriously?! Who let THAT slip by production? There's nothing worse than needing to change a dead battery on stage and having to find a screwdriver... My only other concern is that when you touch the bridge, you hear a huge thump. This can be a good or bad thing, depending on your creativity.

Do you want a great versitile guitar? Then you found it. I've played this guitar before and it blew my mind. It has great acoustic tone and suddenly it can have a rockin' sound. This is what you call a great buy
