I bought one of these in the Black finish, over 2 months ago. I originally wanted a White one, but every one that I tried had major fret edges protruding from the sides of the neck, or miscut nuts where the high E string would slip, whenever you would go to tune it. After looking around, I had no choice but to settle for a Black model, which only had slight fret edges on the lower neck and a perfectly cut nut. They are made in China and unfortunately the quality of the build shows on the majority of the models that I looked at. When I took mine home, I immediately filed down the fret edges and gave this guitar a proper setup and intonation, along with a restringing, which IMO, is what you should do with any new guitar anyway. Once I did all of that, I thought someone had swapped guitars behind my back because the changes that I did, were a vast improvement. The tone and sustain from the Stock ESP LS-100 and LH-100 pickups are really good for the price and are good for not only Metal, but Blues and Classic Rock as well. The weight of this guitar is really light and doesn't cause any strain on your back, which is good considering my age (51). The stock ESP tuners hold tuning stability quite well and providing you take the time to file the nut correctly or replace it outright, you shouldn't have any problems with string slippage. I will admit that this guitar does require some work for it to be a truly playable instrument, but it is worth the effort. I did contact ESP to inform them about the problems with the quality of the build on some of these, and I did mention that even those these are lower price guitars, that is no reason to skimp on the quality . After all, while these aren't USA made, nor carry a hefty price tag, they still carry the ESP name which a lot of kids look up to.
