All the time. I usually practice scales and even work on songs whilst unplugged, just more practical for me and makes plugging in seem that much more rewarding when I can YMMV. I don't usually use...

For me it really comes down to if the guitar is a fixed bridge or floating trem. Fixed bridge is very simple to setup with some basic tools but I personally can't be bothered to deal with a floating...

Ya ended up finding a shop not to far that had both EC-1000 and EC-1000T in stock. Impressed by both, kinda liked the feel of the 1000T a bit more so I think my choice is made.

Thanks for the input...

There is usually a Standard Series or marking along those lines stamped on back with the serial number and country of origin (Japan), at least on the ESP's I've seen and played

If I had to pick between these guitars I'd go with the Les Paul. They're great sounding instruments for any genre and the set neck is a definite win for me.

And if you find yourself wanting a...
