Semi-hollow body for matchless tone and resonance
Authentic, acoustic-style tones. The PS-1 Xtone features a semi-hollow mahogany body to create soft, warm tones. The tonewood provides incredible depth, giving you enough bite and grind to create a perfectly balanced tone. The guitar's chambered design improves its natural sustain, while an "F"-shaped soundhole brings excellent projection and resonance. Bring unparalleled, organic warmth to your rhythm playing.
Playable neck with precise sound
Smooth playing with sparkling brightness. The Xtone's neck and fingerboard combination is delicately balanced to provide excellent sound and maximum playability. A thin "U"-shaped maple neck provides an extremely comfortable playing experience. The "U" profile is supremely well-fitted to the palm of your hand, eliminating hand cramp and allowing you to hit difficult chords and notes with ease.
You'll enjoy matchless sharpness in your playing courtesy of a roasted jatoba fingerboard. This tonewood creates remarkable brightness in every note, ensuring everything you play sounds clear and defined. Furthermore, the jatoba's smooth playing action makes it easy for you to glide along the fretboard at high speed. Ideal for those rocking, fast-paced solos.
Perfect electric sound
Electronics to enhance your sound. The ESP Xtone features a fantastic pair of ESP-Designed humbucking pickups to maximise clarity and power. The LH-150N neck pickup offers superb, open tone. This will ideally suit energetic rhythm playing and ensure dynamism with every chord you play. The LH-150B bridge pickup adds bright harmonics, creating a gorgeously rich overall soundscape. This is delivered with crystal-clear clarity. The humbuckers minimise sound interference to give you sharp, defined tones that sound exactly as you intended them to.
ESP Guitars are legends of the rock music world. Established in Tokyo, Japan in 1975, ESP (Electric Sound Products) initially manufactured high-quality replacement parts for guitars already on the market. These replacements became extremely popular with rock guitarists, as many users noticed that the new parts, when added to their existing guitars, afforded their instruments extra power and aggression.
Noticing their new-found popularity, ESP capitalised and decided to use their expertise to begin crafting guitars of their own. Early models were used in the music of KISS and The Rolling Stones. As years passed, ESP's guitars became increasingly popular within metal and hard rock genres. Metallica, Megadeath, Slayer, Judas Priest, and Guns N' Roses have all used the immense sound of ESPs in their music. Quality, hard rock sound favoured by the very best in the business.
