          It sounds ace! Custom 5 in the bridge and Jazz in the neck. Mahogany body and neck, ebony fingerboard. This is my first time with a Custom 5 and it's wild -- neat sounds out of the box, but I know I'll have to dial in some mids amp-side and tone down the bass a bit. The Jazz is outstanding. I normally play only cleans on the neck, but it holds up so nicely under gain that I may reconsider! The guitar was also very well set-up. Good action and intonation.

            It sounds like you have a gem! Congrats! I am a big fan of the Jazz neck in a singlecut. It is a great pickup! Enjoy the axe...

                Is that a 2020? I didn't see it on the esp site.

                  Sweet colour and cool pickup set out of the box as well, congrats!

                  Those are fairly thin compared to your typical singlecut aren't they?

                    No, it's from their 2018 line. Which I suspect will be discontinued shortly as they refresh the whole lineup.

                      Yep, definitely slimmer than my Les Paul, but not crazy-thin. It's got a nice belly cut and lower horn back scoop, too!

                        SWEET!

                        I have a black one that was my main gigging guitar for a while. These have amazing necks on them.

                          While I have y'all here, a question. This guitar will be in E flat playing mostly metal. I am currently using the stock strings that came with it (10/46) and I'm surprised by how good they feel. I thought I'd be getting spaghetti noodles but they feel great from top to bottom. Am I crazy for wanting to continue using 10/46 strings in a Gibson-scale guitar tuned to E flat? Should I go up to 11/48 or 11/52?

                            I use 10/46 on all of my guitars, including a 24.75" Gibson scale that I keep tuned to Eb. I love it, but it is a preference thing at the end of the day.
