The resonance and playability only a neck-through guitar can provide.
The strings and 3-piece maple neck make a solid loop for incredible resonance and almost no heel to get in your way. Sick looks come from a flamed maple top on agathis wings with a bound fretboard and headstock. Duncan Designed HB-102 humbuckers feature coil tapping with a push-pull tone knob. 25-1/2" scale.
For the money, this is one of the finest solidbody guitars on the market. Put it in the cart now. You will definitely be glad you did.

I?ve had this guitar for a little over a year and I think it is just wonderful. The only thing I didn?t like about it was the pickups but I just replaced those with some Seymour Duncan sh-6 and they definitely get the job done. This guitar is really good especially for the price it is way under priced
This guitar kicks the ass out of any other guitar in it's price range. I got this guitar about two and a half weeks ago and I can honestly say that I love it. This guitar has everything that I need. The pickups are really quite good, The action is very nice and the sustain is really good as well. I play alot of heavy metal like Lamb of God but I also like to clean it up a little every once in a while and play a little Led Zeppelin. Great guitar for the price and I suggest that if you are in the market for a new one then you try this out.
This guitar is great for the price. The neck-thru design is great, and very nice to have on this guitar. The only real flaw are the pickups, which I'm changing to EMG 81/85 set. Overall, a very nice guitar.
I bought this guitar 3 months ago and I love it. it is the best guitar I have ever owned compared to fenders, epiphones and ibanez. Great for intermediate players and even better for players who are just starting out.
This guitar is very nice. It has a awesome finish. Also it sounds very good. The action is good too and it stays in tune very well. If I had enough moey at the time I would have bought it. Overall, I would highly recommend this guitar. Sounds very good through a Fender amp.
As an experienced musician, I can honestly say this is the BEST guitar I have ever owned. With seven years experience and growing fast, I've tried many different expensive American made guitars. This little guy is by far the best value of any your gonna find hands down. The neck-thru design leaves NO heel what so-ever to get in the way up to the 22 fret. The Cherry finish is so striking it'll blow you away. A true work of art. I disagree with the poor reviews on the pickups. I find them to work well with my setup. Granted they are not extremly "hot" but they are well enough defined for me in all three positions, with the right amp and mixer you can make just about any humbucker sound good anyway. Many guys are all about dropping in the active EMG's thats all good, but these stock units will get you by for many styles of music. I'm a complete Malmsteen fan so of course I've owned and played strats, but this ESP plays so much faster than any bolt on or fat necked strat I've ever layed hands on. It's very nice to own a tun o matic bridge as well, I'm so sick and tired of setting up Floating tremelos, adjusting the intonation is a breeze! changing strings is a five minute job and it stays in tune very well. Overall an absoulute steal of a deal, great construction and quality.
This guitar is a pleasure to play. It has a great feel and is well balanced. The pickups leave a little to be desired. I installed an EMG-81(bridge) and an EMG-60(neck) and that improved it tremendously. But, for the price I paid, it plays and sounds great. I highly recommend this guitar.
This guitar is ok, i liked for the first few days i owned it, but then i decided to return it for a strat, I played this guitar through a peavey rage 158 amp, and digitech rp100, it was a great guitar, but there was a little problem, the pickups were horrible, they are duncan designs, of course they are not as good as the real thing, but i expected better from the price of this guitar. I play hard rock, blues, metal, and alternative... The bottom line, if you really want this guitar, then get it, its beautiful and light weight, but i suggest if you get then change pickups, other than that... great guitar
I'm really blown away by this guitar. It's got everything you need, minus a floyd, wich I'm really not into anymore. Sustain is god like, neck thru makes for creamy sustain, pickups have alot of mid but are quite punchy, Stays in tune, innotation can be tailored perfect, action low, the neck is slim and fast, fret job was done quite nicely, finish is superd, the hardware does not look or feel cheap. The coil tap is a usefull tool and makes this guitar quite versitile. You can get an almost hendrix sound from the neck pickup coil tapped. All in all I would say that the quality of this insturment surpasses most in it's price range. You may want to change the pickups but as a personal preference I probly wont, just because the sound is unique and I actually like it. As always Great product and service MF, keep them comming. PS shipping was free and only took 3 days to get to me. -happy gear buying-
I've played at least a dozen guitars. Everyything from a Fender Squire to a Jackson 7-string. I can honestly say I haven't played anything that I liked as much as this LTD. Sure it doesn't have every bell and whistle that I want, but I don't need them. What it does have that I really love is a neck-thru design and sustain for days. Get a B-52 stack and this guitar and your set!
