Comments about ESP LTD EC 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Electric Guitar:

I've been playing over 25 years and 15 years on stage. I've owned many Gibson Guitars and this Guitar is my favorite. Its like playing an SG Supreme with a Les Paul Standard feel. The EMG 57 Pickup is amazing for all sorts of applications, but I mainly use it for metal and funk. It has great response, an aggressive punch, with harmonics that are even better than the 81, and clean tones that don't break up. It is a great pick up all around. The setup on this guitar is very comfortable and the playability is amazing. The quilted maple top with the see-through black satin finish really shows off the wood grain. It is beyond words! The price may appear high, but you'll have a piece of history in the making of which only 300 were made. You get beauty and quality in one with a fullness of sound that stands up to the competition and may even surpass it. This guitar will eventually be worth a lot more than what you originally paid for it. This guitar will truly be a collector's piece one day in the not so distant future.
