Wicked looks and a neck-thru build.
The ESP LTD F-250 Electric Guitar was created when ESP took their popular F-200 and redesigned it with neck-thru construction for massive sustain to match its edgy looks. The sculpted agathis body, arrowhead inlays, and all-black hardware give it menacing stage presence. Featuring a maple neck, Floyd Rose Special double-locking bridge, extra-jumbo frets, and 2 ESP LH-301 humbuckers with coil-splitting, it's got all the credentials for crunching rock and metal.

For a guitar this price, or just for any guitar, this thing does it's job. It can be tuned Dropped Db to give some really growling - REALLY - growling riffs. It can also be, contrary to other statements, a decent blues guitar. Crank the distortion up a little bit and flip the switch down to rhythm and it makes an excellent metallic SRV sound. Kinda like a cross between Satch and SRV, and it does it's blues excellently with that combination. For shredding, it does have very comfortable smooth frets that do offer comfortable playing, but with the neck being finished your neck must be cleaned very well(If your hands sweat like mine do, clean it daily before and after playing) for it to have that buttery feel. The locking nut is very reliable and will stay in tune for weeks even after diving. However, squealing with a harmonic and the whammy bar is not possible even with 10 distortion. Believe me, I've tried and it is very dull sounding. Tuning may pose a problem, as with a floating tremolo. If it really bothers you then get the tremolo blocked. I have had two problems in my 10 months of owning, one being that the finish's durability sucks, as a 3 foot fall to carpet took of a gigantic chunk of paint. The other being that the tremolo bar itself came loose and the nut inside the guitar holding it in place broke, but that was a minor easily fixable and probably isolated problem. Overall it's a unique looking guitar that looks cool at an insane price. Generally people are wowed by it's design, an eye catcher, and it's sights are overshadowed by it's versatile amazing sound. Buy it.

Features: you can't go wrong with the set neck, dual humbuckers, and tremolo. The guitar looks great from the style to the fretboard.Quality: This is where the problem is. I know it is not an expensive guitar, but in this price range, I can pick up an ibanez or fender of much better quality. Just feels cheap with minor imperfections.Value: Good value. Again, for the price, where are you going to find set neck and EMG humbuckers?Overall: I wanted to give this guitar a better rating, but the quality issues prevent me from doing so. I think the problems are in manufacturing, not design, so perhaps a little work in the factory is in order.

I owned this guitar at one time for about 3 or 4 years. I traded it with a couple hundred dollars for an epi les paul custom. -great trade by the way. Just as good as a Gibson, no doubt. The f250 that I had was an earlier model and it had the different EMG-HZ pickups in it. The new ones are most definitely an upgrade and I wish the model I had came with those ones. Over all though its a pretty good guitar but honestly it's probably worth spending a couple more bucks on a guitar with the active EMG 81/60 pickups. The ones on this guitar are a little more noisy. This guitar is worth the money though.
So I bought this because I actively started playing again, all I can say is this guitar is beautiful, I have it in black and it came to me flawless. Intonation was almost spot on except for one string, neck was perfect, floyd rose was parallel to body. I was skeptical about the floyd rose due to some bad experences on a few guitars I have had, but this one actually changed my mind. pickups scream, sustain is perfect, plays better then alot of high dollar guitars I have had. for the money it cannot be beat
I've wanted this guitar for 2 years before I finally bought it a week ago. I simply fell in love with it. It sounds awesome, looks awesome, and ever since I got it I can't put it down. The pickups sound really good, and I haven't had trouble with the Floyd Rose yet. I read a lot of reviews that said it wasn't good, but I guess if you don't over-use it, it won't let you down. Definitly a good guitar.
The first time I ever laid eyes on this guitar it was instant infatuation. That was 2 years before I could finally have one of my own. The first thing that caught my attention of course was the radical body design, a bit of a gothy twist on an otherwise generic super-strat style. But it was only until I read a review on the PRE-2004 model that I really started to look at it as more than eye candy, like a beautiful woman who you just found out can play better than you! Ah ha, so after much online searching I finally found one for a steal of a price, lo and behold not only was it a pre-04 model, but already had the EMG 81/85 set up! What luck can that be right? The neck was fast, smooth, and the perfect thickness/thinness for me, plus the Neck-thru is an awesome little feature for some serious sustaining. The Xtra jumbo frets are great for my lengthy fingers, and the pick-ups, oh the pick-ups :D if you're familiar with EMGs 81/85 set up I needn't say more. And surprisingly the Licensed FR bridge doesn't go out of tune as easily as people make it sound, or at least not mine, and I don't find changing strings or major changes in tuning all that difficult or inconvenient in the slightest, but that's just me. I actually play this guitar a lot more than my '74 Gibson LP Custom! I absolutely love it. LTD may be ESP's more affordable branch, but it's products are just as high quality.
I bought this guitar about six months ago and aside from the Licensed Floyd, it's amazing. The pickups are decent and the neck is almost perfect. The tremolo, however, makes changing strings a nightmare and using it any at all jerks the guitar completely out of tune. To fix this problem, I simply threw the tremolo bar away, so now I may as well have a fixed bridge guiitar. Aside from the trem, I would reccomend this guitar to anyone.
This is and awsome guitar. The first time I played it down at my local guitar shop I knew it was the guitar for me. The only thing that isn't absolutly aswome in the Floyd Rose Tremelo. Even with the double locking bridge it still goes out of tune a little bit if you use the Tremelo bar too much. Other then that I recommend this guitar to anyone.
I bought this guitar December 2008, It's amazing. The pickups sounds great as well. My only complaint about the guitar is the Liscensed Floyd Rose Tremelo.
I ordered the latest ESP LTD F-250 model in December 2008,I must say its an amazing guitar,The Colour (Black) & the Shape are a real chick magnet.the chrome really brings out the life in it.The Coil Split gives you a great variety of tones and the best acoustic sound ever.The EMG ESP Pickups are great tooo.However i wasnt happy with the Floyd Rose Licensed Tremolo.The springs come out when u pull them hard enough.But i managed to fix tht in no time.The Balance of Extra Jumbo frets & the Extra Thin U are great for my incredibly long fingers.The Myth about the sticky frets is all crap,I literally play this thing for 4 to 5 hrs straight and my hands sweat too, but the neck doesnot stick at all.Overall this is an amazing guitar to buy.
I've owned this guitar for about six months, it's near perfect. It plays fast, the bridge pickup really growls with great harmonics and the neck pickup is smooth and still has good harmonics. The neck can get a little sticky from sweat but it shouldn't discourage you from buying it. I have yet to have a single problem for it. For the low price, if mine was broken or stolen I would definitely buy it again.
Wow, I've had this guitar for a while now, all I can say is, BUY IT. You won't find a better guitar for the price. The neck is great, nice and fast. The only thing I did was put in an EMG 81/85 set. Honestly, the ESP EMG's that comes stock aren't bad at all. I'll never play another guitar besides ESP again. This is a great guitar, my liscensed floyd rose has been great, guitar stays in tune ALWAYS! Just buy it already, trust me...you'll love it!METAL!!
