Reply from EmperionGuitar was faster than a speeding bullet.Thumbs up.

Hi Yus,

It was a limited model and around 8 or 10 of it were made,

Hi there,

to be honest no-one ever brought to our attention this kind of problem with that particular guitar. Anyway it is a firm point that every guitar is different, even if it is a serial instrument, and could manifest different flaws from another guitar, built exactly the same.

This depends on the fact that the materials and the hardware used, respond in completely different ways because of many factors (last but not least the way of playing it).

It is for sure our interest to deeply know all of these matters, so to limit the possibility, together with our suppliers, that these isolated cases spread all over entire productions.

It is important to us to grow up as guitar builders and this is why we always follow very carefully such these problems


So it was really important that you contacted us. I want to guarantee that we are always open to talk to our customers.

So if you still have something that needs to be further cleared, no problem at all. We'll be here to answer your questions.

Best Regards

Thank you for the 2nd reply,about the bridge collapsing issue,its a common found problems in all TOM like bridge.Gibson and others included.Speaking from experience its due natural stress from the string break point.My solution was and has always been pressing back the bridge overnight.Its a simple repair to do.as shown here on an Ibanez bridge.











the other feedback I got from Nizam was on this guitar it is not comfortable to do palm mute due to less palm rest space.

Apart from that this is a well built guitar for any player.
