I think that for the money, it's not so great, and I really wouldn't like to have a one pickup guitar. OFR is good, and the hardware and quality of the guitar are probably really great, it's an ESP, but really, ultimately, I think it's overpriced. You can get a comparable guitar for less, most likely.

this model is a very limited run by ESP as an exact replica to Alexi's Pink sawtooth. as far as ESPs go they are very very very nice guitars but sadly just abit overpriced for my liking personally.

if you like it go for it, ESP make amazing guitars but in my oppinion i really think as mentioned above that you can get better for the money, try going Jackson Customshop if you have that sorta money

Basically along the lines of what everyone else has said; if it's definately what you're after, go for it, but be aware it's probably overpriced and, tonally it's probably really limited given it's single pickup (And lack of tone controls etc.).

If you're particularly into the Offset V shape, though, Jackson have tons of models with that shape, so a look into their custom shop or high-range production models might be really worth it, and would allow you to get exactly what you're after, even if that just means picking out details of the ESP you particularly like...

Well on this one, the body appears to be a lot wider. But IDK if that's enough

i heard something about negotiations a while back between ESP and Jackson/Fender. Dunno if that means its been sorted or what but i know ESP dont use the same body shape because theirs is bigger than a Jackson RR

Mmm ugly shape, lower longer horn looks crap imo. Also you are comparing custom shop vs. standard series.

How is it overpriced if the TS can afford it?


Because it's paying more for the same exact guitar than one less pickup just because Alexi's name is on it.
I have tried one rigged with the 18 volt EMG mod and i still didn't like it too much.
The old ESP Jeff Hanny's with the OFR are where it's at.
and ESP axxions and DV8s.
I'm not much of an EMG guy :/

AHA! I've been though what ur situation alreadi. I decided to stick with the ESP Alexi Pink Sawtooth STD version. You could save about $110 if you go for the STD version WHICH is still a ESP. To tell you the truth its actually the same. The CS versions quality is just a bit better but otherwise its the same thing.
