    ESP LTD Xtone PS-1. Other than the Sonic Blue and the great price, the main attraction was that I had a PC-1v in the past in pearl white that I modded to look like a Penguin. That model had Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro 2 pickups and a Bigsby with gold hardware and was really great. I regret selling it but it was a boat anchor. This one is a little lower on the feature pole with generic hum buckers but they still are hot, pushing the my little Electromatic 6161 amp into overdrive pretty easily. Very well made and set up. Easy playing. No complaints.

    I like the color. Reminds me of a flying model airplane I built decades ago and doped the tissue in "Curtis Blue."

    I don't know that's it's made anymore

    Congratulations, if I remember correctly I played and LTD at a mates house one time as he was saying how good it was to play, so had a go and he was right, so if this is like the one I played it should be a great addition to your collection.

    Congrats Jim. Great colour(I think it's red, and I demand scientific data to say it isn't)

    Is it semi hollow, or semi solid? :)
