    Comments about ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar:

    I got the H-51 a few months ago and it is one of the best guitars I've played. It's a lower end guitar but it's a good lower end. The pickups it comes with are descent for stock pickups, but I swapped them out with Seymour Duncan Blackouts AHB-1's and it sounds beautiful now. It doesn't go out of tune easily like most lower end guitars. It is pretty good for harmoniccs. The best thing about it is the price. It is a cheap guitar, but a good cheap guitar. I definitely recommend it to novice and experienced players.

      Comments about ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar:

      I got this for a great deal from a pawn shop actually, and I can't believe what I got for the price. It's a lower end electric, but good lower end, basically the ESP entry model. It's not like some of those very cheap guitars that sound awful and can't stay in tune for a single song. Of all the guitars I've played, this one still feels the best to me. The biggest issue is the pickups aren't great. Not awful, but a professional musician would probably want to switch them out with something a bit better, but still then the guitar itself is great quality. For the similar instruments in this price range, I don't think you're going to find much better, so if you don't want to spend a ton this is a great option. Even if money is no object it could be worth a look, but you'd probably want to switch to better pickups.

      Best Axe For Da Money

      By Harry Cho

      from Illinois

      Comments about ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar:

      I think there is not a better guitar for the money. This guitar was made in Indonesia and setup in LA, california. I paid a pretty good price, but the guitar is still a great value. I highly recommend ESP guitars based on my experience. Again the pickups are good for clean and metal, but I prefer a better crunch or brown sound. I wish the nut width was a bit wider. This way I can hold the chords better high up on the neck. The bolt on neck gives me options for the future.
      I did like the head stock that I got which is more squared in appearance.
      But there is a version of this guitar with a more pointy looking head stock which also looks pretty good.
      Quality Tone and Volume knobs, along with a solid feeling pickup selector toggle switch.
      Dual humbucker pickups are ok for clean and metal, but I don't think it has the right crunch about it.
      The tuners are pretty good quality.
      The 25.5" bolt on neck is maple with a nice finish.
      The nut is 42mm wide, and I think I prefer 43.72569387542mm give or take a nanometer for my averaged sized hands.
      The basswood body is black cherry finish which I think is awesome.
      I read basswood are lighter guitar body material but I did not notice too much compared to alder and agathis.
      The string through with a hard tail bridge seems pretty solid with good sustain.
      I liked the one I decided to keep, but I did have to send the first one back because the setup was pretty bad. I assume that ESP has more than one guitar guru setting up the guitars.
      It's not that I couldn't do the setup myself. It's just I had better things to see, etc...
      This guitar is much better looking in person than in the catalogs or internet pictures.
      Now I'm not one to judge a book by its cover, but this guitar functioned right off the bat without
      problems.
      I did get this guitar knowing it was on sale and there was a scratch on the back of the neck when I inspected the one I decided to keep. But because everything overall was top knotch I give this the highest value rating. The only thing I see myself changing on this guitar is probably the strings, the pickups and maybe the neck; otherwise everything else is pretty solid.

      cant beat it for the price

      Comments about ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar:

      Ive have had this guitar for about a year now and its awsome. Its really good if u play pantera or some black label society. its really balanced very well pickups are decent. the only thing i wasn't crazy about was the feel of the neck, so i took the neck off a LTD- Gus 200 and put it on the LTD- H51 and it made a HUGE difference. now it plays better than my Dean Razorback...Overall this guitar is worth the money...if you wan a good sounding and durable guitar BUY THE Ltd-51 you wont regret it promise

      Reasonable

      By Iron Maiden zombie

      from Pennsylvania, USA

      Comments about ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar:

      No tremolo bar slot; tune-o-matic bridge is not the nicest and the action can be undesirably low, which is not good for a beginner, which this guitar clearly targets.

      Not bad...

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar:

      My friend owns this guitar and i got to use it for a couple shows and practices (my guitar isnt as easily to put into standard due to the tremelo so we needed a second guitar) and its not bad for a beginner. The tone pot is a little rough and uneven, the pickups are kinda muddy but if your a beginner you wouldnt notice the difference. The neck is nice and the body is light, great for a beginner and highly affordable.

      good drop tune guitar

      Comments about ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar:

      this guitar is one of the best guitars i have ever played. and it is a good drop tune guitar. i play in drop B and use 13to59 gauge strings. but i had to file the nut to fit the strings on the guitar. the pickups have punchy tone and sustain. i got the blue guitar and it has a purple reflection. this is a good metal guitar and it real durable.

      ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ESP LTD H-51 Electric Guitar:

      This is a solid, great playing and great sounding instrument. It had Di'Addario's on it when I opened it up and it felt good in the hands. I ran through adjusting the truss rod and the bridge, and the intonation. ESP house pickups sound pretty solid, and pitch harmonics are pretty good. Overall this is a great guitar and one of the best available in this price range IMO. It offers great action, tone and pickup selector offers a variety of sounds for you, comfortable play as it is very light, keeps tuning well and sounds great. If you're looking for a first axe, or just want a nice quality instrument that plays well, this is a very good choice.
