I love this guitar and I would recremend it to any hardcore guitar player.
The neck is extremely comfortable and perfect for shrailing on. It has a slick feel to it and is good for fast playing. The thing I dont like about it is the lock tuning. I like to putmy guitar in different tuning and that is really annoying to have to deal with but its all personal preference.
The pickups are perfect for metal. My old guitar is a Fender Squire strat, a really cheap one too. So I wasn't expecting how good the guitar sounded. I loooove it. The clean isnt bad at all either.
I think its amazing for the price.

I got mine roughly six years ago, so the build may have improved since then, but here is my experience.Floyd Rose "Licensed" certainly does not equal Floyd Rose. The tremolo is unusable. Even if I bend a note too far, it goes out of tune. That may largely be attributed to the soft wood. The posts flex in the wood and make returning to a zero point pretty much impossible.My neck had a slight twist to it. That most likely won't be a common problem and I could have remedied it had I discovered the problem before the warranty ran out. I've had it set up 4 different times and cannot get the action I like. Fretting out and buzzing abound unless I have the strings really high.The pickups are average. Not bad for the price. I put SD Distortions in it and it sounds pretty good when it's in tune.It looks great and the neck feels very nice and plays fast. If it weren't for the twist, it would be a very good neck.Mine may have been an isolated experience, especially with the neck, but these are the risks you run with a cheaper guitar. It's a decent guitar for the money, but make sure you check the neck when you get it as well as the tremolo.

long lasting, genuine feel

By Heath Macias

Comments about ESP LTD M-100FM Electric Guitar:

i have owned this guitar for about 6 to 7 years now. i love the fretboard on this thing. i can play all bodom solos with ease /m/. its never given me any problems and the hardware is pretty durable. the pick ups do sound muddy through a high gain amp, but if you have the money to put better pick ups then do it! this is a great guitar for any starter and advances players

Really worth the money!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about ESP LTD M-100FM Electric Guitar:

I needed a backup guitar but didn't want to spendmuch money. This guitar was perfect. After a setup it plays like my $800 Epi! Pickups are not great but given some drive they have a nice mellow lead sound so whatever. Buy Now!

My Review of the ESP LTD M-100FM

By Ibanez JR.

from Wisconsin

Comments about ESP LTD M-100FM Electric Guitar:

Overall it's a decent guitar.
This guitar is just an okay guitar for someone like myself. I like to play a lot of different tunings.
The build of the guitar has great quality compared to a lot of other guitars that I have played and owned before. It feels right. It's not to heavy, not to light. Doesn't make your back sore after playing for hours on end. Which is always a plus. The neck is pretty smooth but not the smoothest. That's just my opinion. The headstock is sleek and makes tunning seem a little more simplier than a standard tune key like on a Gibson or something such as that. The Trem it's self works flawlessly. My guitar never come outta tune no matter how many dive bombs I throw into one run or song. Which as we all know is a plus.
If you are strapped for cash and don't mind the lock tuning, than go for this guitar. Somewhere down the line you might want to replace the Pickups. But that depends on what your set up is. I've heard people complain that the pickups suck but they sound great through my set. Which is listed above if you are curious.

Great Guitar

By Sickman-eJf3U

from Atlanta

Comments about ESP LTD M-100FM Electric Guitar:

This is about the best guitar you can get for $300. A few people said that the Floyd Rose goes out of tune and either I have an older model with a different set-up or they don't know what they are doing. The Floyd Rose on mine is great and it never goes out of tune. It takes awhile to get used to changing strings and adjusting the bridge to your tastes (if you don't know what I am talking about DO NOT get a Floyd Rose guitar because you will spend a ton of money on labor at your local guitar shop).Anyway, for the money this is a great guitar. I use mine over my Epi most of the time and I paid twice the money for that one. I like it too but I can drop this one and not really worry about it.

pretty sweet guitar

By SixStringSlinger90

from Chicago, IL

Comments about ESP LTD M-100FM Electric Guitar:

I went to Guitar center with the intention on buying me a guitar with a floyd rose, my very first, and for the price I knew I had to get it. Its my first with a Floyd Rose and I absolutely love it. I play it through a Crate and the distortion is orgasmic and the clean is pretty damn good too. I've been playing for 4 1/2 years now and trust me, its a pretty damn good guitar
