      Awesome guitar

      By Jay-QMdBo

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      I purchased this beast elsewhere but let me tell you, it plays like butter and my other guitar is a prs cu22. You are paying for the neck here, it never gets sticky during practices and feels great. I would recommend this guitar to any guitarist who wants to play metal. thumbs up

      Good just one issue.

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      Alright I know you are looking at the stars and are wondering so here is my review. I own this and it could not be a better guitar. Perfect for heavy riffage or just some clean riffs you like. It is a very very versatile. Now here is my one issue with this thing. The knob on the guitar is way too close to the strings. It can be troubling to keep moving it back to where you want it because your hand will hit it. Over all this is a amazing guitar and it is completely worth the money.

      great guitar

      By lespaulnick910

      from tar heel, nc

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      I think that this is a great guitar. its the 1st esp standard that ive ever played. it has a nice clean look and has good tone. i played it through a line6 spider lll combo amp. i realy think that esp should make an ltd or edwards version so an average player could afford it. all in all this is a great instrument.

      AMAZING GUITAR

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      i own a ESP M-2, witch is the same thing as thing just has two 81 emg's and a switch + flody rose. practicly the same thing. and i love her to death.i own gibsons to, this AXE is nice to play siting down or standing, very easy to reach all the frets. and you will fall inlove with the inlays, on the fret bord. truely an amazing product. only down fall is, you have to like the sound of EMG's. personly i love my passive picks ups, EMGS are always a nice change.

      Regarding The ESP M-I Standard

      By SDAD

      from Oregon

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      Ok, now yes, I do not own this guitar but I know a lot about guitars and have listened to recordings of this one, and let me tell you this is a guitar of the highest quality and I am going to save every penny until I can afford one!!! First and formost, I love that this guitar does NOT have a tremolo, as its becomeing very hard to find a good metal guitar without one nowadays. It makes tuning, bends, and everything much easier and more convienient without out one. In my opinion the emg 81 sounds much better for clean sounds then the 85 in the bridge so to me there's absolultly no reason to have the bridge pickup there. The woods are all of the highest quality and ESP has a reputation of amazing construction, this is no doubt a superb example of this. I cannot say enough good things about this guitar, just please, do the world a favor and please, PLEASE go try one at your local guitar store!!!

      Great guitar but to expencive

      By ESP/FORLIFE

      from Corn field, IA

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      I played this guitar at my local music store it was one of the best guitars Ive ever played until I saw the price tag. Its an amazing guitar but way out of a lot of people's price range if your gonna make a simple guitar at least make it a little affordable. Use rosewood instead of ebony find little ways to cut down on the price. Overall its an amazing guitar if you can afford it.

      Why you should own an ESP M-I Standard NTB

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      The ESP M-I NTB has all you need to make a sonic splash! The money spent on this guitar is buying an incredible neck, not bindings or frills. The sustain is remarkable, and the note clarity is almost unbelievable. Even using high gain settings, each note is distinct and resonant. The M-I plugged straight into the front of a Peavey 6505+ is THE sound for metal, to my tastes! Palm muted passages are tightly machine gun staccato, yet high register leads are not strident. This is the best I've heard an EMG-81 sound. The price is a steal for an axe this talented. Get one now before ESP starts charging what its worth!

      Less really is more

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      I was a bit wary about getting this ESP due to a lack of features, but after playing it I was won over. Even though it doesn't have a lot of features it still plays amazing. The EMG makes for great harmonics and every note is clear and sounds great with gain. The neck is incredible, and the Gotoh tuners ensure you stay in tune. So if you want a simplistic axe, get this one. You will not be disappointed.

      ESP M series is the BEST

      By Jake N.

      from New York

      Comments about ESP M-1 NTB Electric Guitar:

      I haven't actually played this guitar, I have played the M-2 though, (neck through body version) and I intend to buy one as soon as I can afford it. these guitars are great. they're similar to the Jackson Soloist, except they come with EMGs, and the necks are WAY better, because they aren't painted, so they're faster and when your hands get sweaty, this neck won't slow you down. I still prefer the M-2 because it has a floyd rose, and because I prefer rosewood fretboards (I have heard that ebony practically turns back into bark after a while) but I haven't seen one do this so what do I know? I just dont trust ebony fretboards. All in all, I promise you that this is an amazing guitar, and if you're into metal, (and you don't need tremolo) then this is the guitar for you. Plus I didn't mention that this thing has amazing sustain.
