In case this comes back around or people are looking for info on similar drops for B-stock ESP guitars/basses:
My guitar came ~5 days ago and I'm so incredibly happy with it! It really is a beautiful instrument and has great sound/playability. I've played bass for 9 years but have never owned a 'regular' guitar; figured it was about time! I knew I didn't want an entry-level instrument and figured that a $500 budget seemed reasonable based on my experiences with bass. This drop makes me feel like I was able to buy an instrument 'one tier higher' in quality than my budget allowed, which is great! I won't even have to consider replacing this guitar for a long while.
In terms of the B-stock quality, my instrument's only flaw appears to be a tiny scratch next to the pickup selector switch. It's incredibly hard to notice - took me a couple times looking over the whole instrument to find it. I guess there are also a couple tiny black specks on the back of the finish? But those could just be dirt or something from shipping. But those are a total non-issue.
Obviously I can't guarantee the condition that other B-stock instruments would be in, but based on my experience, this drop was amazing!
A picture of the tiny scratch, which seems to be the only thing qualifying this instrument as B-stock:
My new girl, in all her glory (yes that is a bass amp... any good amp drops coming up?):
That is one sweet axe. It is EXACTLY what I came here looking for. Congratulations!
