That's a great review on the Duncan site.
Anyway, I would never expect a mass produced axe to be on par with something custom shop of any manufacturer. I was mainly comparing these to the ESP M2's, which I've played, and are nice. When I referred to ESP I was considering the difference between ESP mass and LTD, not LTD and ESP custom shop. My main concern was the wood quality and fit. A fret job is pretty much a given. Boo on the licensed Floyd.
The price tag seems fair on paper, but all that can change when you get one in your hands.
