      I bought the this guitar over 4 years ago and its still my favorite guitar over an ibanez. My only complaint is that the treble pickup is a tad overwound. But that is a minor issue as all you do is roll off on volume a bit and your good. I highly reccomend to any beginner guitar players. Even seasond players looking for a cheap axe that can churn out some hard rock and metal and still retain classic rock grit and mediocre cleans, this is a great choice.

      I used to own one of these. "Used to" is the key phrase here. Once I bought a guitar made of a decent wood (swamp ash / mahogany), I realized how horrible agathis sounds. For the price, the workmanship is excellent, and the hardware gave me no problems. However, the pickups and electronics in general are horrible. You can put an Earvana nut on it, strap locks, new pickups (the Hot Rodded Combo works good in this guitar), new pots, a new input jack, and upgrade the bridge, but by then you've spent too much on an unworthy guitar, and your resale value for what you've spent is not going to improve. Take this as a life lesson: buy something with decent wood if you plan on upgrading. Otherwise, money spent on a good but used guitar, or on any guitar that's not agathis, would be money better spent. ESP's workmanship and quality are good, but the wood is the worst player on what is a losing team. Get something else.

        Comments about ESP LTD EC-100QM Electric Guitar:

        I once had a MIA Fender Stratocaster and this guitar has the same playability. I should say that right out of the box, you'll probably need to set the intonation, but that won't take too long. The guitar does seem to need tuning a bit, but you can upgrade the tuners. The factory pickups seem fine to me, but my amp is a Marshall. Anything is going to sound good through a Marshall. I thought a guitar with Humbuckers and the playability of a Strat would cost an arm and a leg. This guitar is a good buy at the price. I would reccomend it to anyone wanting a new axe for a low price. You could easily spend a lot more and not get as good a guitar.

          Comments about ESP LTD EC-100QM Electric Guitar:

          This i s a good guitar if you are looking for that deeper humbucking tone. I own a squier strat that i have professionally set up and this guitar was set up just as well which was suprsing because i bought it for 100 off craigslist. the one thing i don't like is the jumbo frets as i am used to the low frets on the strat. however i guess that is just personal preference.

            Comments about ESP LTD EC-100QM Electric Guitar:

            One of my cheapest ($) guitars but is the one I use all the time. The factory Pickups sound ok clean, but muddy with overdrive or distortion. I change them for a pair of seymour duncan seth lover SH-55 and it sounds grate. No problem with the hardware but might change the tuners and the saddles. Over all a grate guitar for the price and with the right pickups it can stand next to any other.

            Comments about ESP LTD EC-100QM Electric Guitar:

            I have multiple guitars including a gold top les paul and a RR series jackson and i would rather play this esp ec100qm than both of those. the neck feels great and the pickups sound find to me, much better than the emg camo set in my les paul. Very good buy, i havent had any problems with the tuning, bridge, pickups, or anything, this guitar has worked perfect for me. i did have to adjust the truss rod a little but that is it.

            Greatest possible beginner axe

            By ShredLord666

            from Reading, PA

            Comments about ESP LTD EC-100QM Electric Guitar:

            The EC-100QM was the first electric I ever bought, and to this day I have not found a guitar that feels more comfortable to me than this one. The pickups have a really beautiful tone if you use them through good amps and stuff like that, and the neck has the most amazing feel ever. If you're looking for a guitar to start playing metal, this is definitely a great way to go!

            Comments about ESP LTD EC-100QM Electric Guitar:

            I bought this guitar about 2 years ago and it still plays like its brand new for what its been through. It has a great sound and has fast neck action it feels all around comfortable to hold. My only problem with the guitar is the bridge falls a lot and is hard to keep in one position but other wise i can't complain and love playing it.

            Don't bother!

            Comments about ESP LTD EC-100QM Electric Guitar:

            I got this guitar as a gift and the pick ups are trash, the first string after the fifth fret is hit or miss, more miss than hit. I put it back in the box and put it in the closet, I wish I had the receipt to return it. I would not recomend it, go to the next one or save and get the EC1000.
