    When it first occurred to me that price and country of origin weren't really important was after I traded my LTD ST-203FR, I think it was made in Vietnam. It was about a $300 guitar new, and the only thing I did was put a Frankenstein humbucker in it. The neck on that guitar was amazing. By this time, I had traded off several PRS, EBMM, Gibson, Fender, Peavey guitars, but still to this day, that is one of two that I still look back on with tremendous regret for getting rid of it. Even the neck that I had custom made specifically for me isn't quite as nice. I've never found another neck that felt as good, until my wife bought me the new Art Series Frankenstein for my Birthday. That neck reminds me of the neck on the LTD. Just effortless to play.

    Anyway, that's when I started to realize it's not about how much you spend, but whether or not the quality is there, and if it feels right to you.

    I actually played one of those old ESP Strats the distressed one. It was actually a really nice guitar and it was like less than 300 bucks. Just a couple changes on some hardware and the pickup and you’ve got a really great guitar.

    Yeah, that's the one. Distressed Black finish. I didn't get around to changing the FR Special out for a OFR, but I didn't feel like it needed it, because that thing sustained and had great resonance the way it sat. I don't know if I just got lucky with an excellent one, or if they were all like that, but it was amazing.

    Yep that was it it was it black. I saw it at a local shop years ago and I picked it up because it looked cool. It was a nice guitar. I probably should’ve bought it for the price.
