I was going to get one before I planned on getting a ART300 instead, I've heard quite good things about the EM-2 never managed to get my hands on one though

If you can get past the looks, it seems to be pretty good for the price. I've never heard of a guitar that inexpensive having an OFR, so it could be a good buy. Might want to budget in a pickup change as well.
