overall an incredible acoustic sound which is something you NEED before buying, sure people THINK you're paying a bit extra and all guitars sound the same but once its set up right, perfectly in tune and the right string brand and gauge on it this guitar pretty much plays itself , its worth the money and more, this and my ex-250 I owned mid 2010 are amazing guitars for their price.
For me I like to keep it simple, you get a low profile floyd rose , some passive EMG pickups which I love actually with the right setting on say a Line 6 pod this can do anything. You get basic controls volume , a useless tone knob but it pulls up for coil tap making it seem like two guitars. This is my 15th guitar I've bought so I'm very picky.. what you'll get is an honest review I wish I was paid for.

Once you get the hang of this floyd rose its not bad, comparing it to an original floyd rose there's small difference and owning this for more than a week doing a set up and making the strings tune the opposite way as I like to reach over and turn left.
the neck feels amazing and the fretwork is flawless, it goes on par with my high end BC Rich Beast which is 2 or 3 times as much money depending on where you live and where you got it. This thing stays in tune forever, I haven't owned the guitar long but based on experience when I was buffing out some scratches and scraping off super glue from the previous owner being an idiot and this guitar stayed in tune perfectly.

since its used heavily toured with I'm SURE I'm the only one having to use a flat head screw driver to unlock the nut and saddles to restring. the only thing I would improve on this guitar is make the cutaway (i think the term is) deeper... as in you can slide to the 18th fret but other than that its extra effort.
come on, its neckthrough , its got emgs passive or not they're awesome.. sure its got a korean made floyd rose special and ESP tuners but you can't go wrong with this. I love the sound plus the flamed maple top makes it stand out, did I mention the neck is like glass. Low end epiphones don't feel half this nice.

the only thing is I would have loved to have this guitar in transparent black or green as I currently own two other red guitars.

I owned this guitar for about a week before shipping it back to musicians friend. The g string would not lock, causing me much anger. I don't know how easy it would be for a professional to fix, but i tried fixing it and it didn't work. The paint scrapes off of the floyd rose really easily also. The humbuckers are not good at all, i suggest you would put real EMGs in it rather than ESP's crap ones that they put the emg name on. I had the black finish, and in certain lights it would look purple. The guitar is average weight, and it feels nice. The tremolo is non-recessed, which sucks. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind taking a risk of getting a bad product and having to replace the humbuckers after you realize they are crap. Also, a good thing is that it has a coil tap. It doesn't get that nice of clean tones on single or humbucking pickup mode, but i guess it is decent.

M-200FM

By bob nijland

from netherlands

great guitar, for beginner and advanced guitarists.
Bought mine second hand from a guy, he equiped it with EMG 81&85, with these on it, its a AMAZING guitar. Only have to tune it once a 2 weeks or something, tone settings are awesome, flamed top rocks, and the neck is as smooth as hell!!
The neck-through is quite nice, and feels really solid, although I have a Fender strat as well here. It weighs way much more. I think the weight of this guitar could be a lil more
For the value with the EMG's i think its more then awesome, would be worth much much more.

M-200FM.. It's a great guitar

By Lenny2Henny

from florida

First...Remember, reviews from people who say "I just got this guitar last week!" and "Bought it yesterday" or "Had this thing a month!" shouldn't count for your decision. Why bother with a review that reflects nothing more than the "shock value" of someone getting a new toy.ALSO: This site should BAN reviews from the "I played this thing once" and "I looked it up on google" and "my friend has one" people.LTD M-200FM. There's a boat load of models from LTD, I'm thinking the "M" is their reversed headstock line. I've owned mine for about a year and a half now. I bought it from a local shop used, and it was about a month old. Great playing guitar, good action, smooth transitions. Most guitarists will love playing your M-200. The EMG passive pick ups sound very nice. Soon as I plugged it in I could tell it had great tone and ability to play nearly any genre. The downside to this guitar is it's bridge. For some reason, it doesn't stay in tune much. The lowest string can be tuned, then if you bend it, it goes back out...But only once...then it's fine for a while. Licensed F R bridge just doesn't cut it, not in my opinion. The guitar is plenty good to gig with. Most people say to use a back up, which is a great idea. I've gigged with this guitar about 10 times..without a back up. Other than the tuning situation, I had no complaints. My MH-1000 will be here next week (ordered from this site) and the M-200 will become my lower tuned guitar. Overall, the guitar is a great playing instrument. Might be able to do better in it's price range...But it certainly wouldn't be easy.

ESP M200FM

By ESP review man

from St. James NY

I was looking for a new guitar to add to my collection a while back and layed my eyes on this in a local music shop. I was optomistic at first cause i had heard good and bad stories about ESP LTD guitars. I plugged it in into a small Vox practice amp. The sound blew me away. I immediatly placed an order for a brand new one (in see through black of course:). When it came in the mail I was expecting a major set up job in the future, but to my suprise the guitar came set up pretty nicely. The coil tapping is a cool feature but as for the "Floyed Rose" not so much. it works just fine but there are some wierd rattles and scratching. Overall the guitar is great. Sure there are better ESP's out there but for the price I highly recomend this guitar.

The Best Guitar

By ltdman 2045

from Undisclosed

i bought this guitar anout a month ago and i love my teacher told me it was a great guitar and it sounds great. the features are amazing the coil tapping works really well and allows you to get a screaming distortion the humbuckers are also amazing. i tuned this guitar once when i got and only make minor adjustments every week or so and i use the whammy bar alot. It sounds great, stays in tune, and has great features i would reccomend this guitar to any player

Pretty decent

By Through Exile

from Minnesota

I bought an older version of this guitar which has the esp passives instead of the hz's but everything else is exactly the same. I originally purchased this instrument for the sustain becusae it was a neckthrough, but not realizing that the wings were made of agathis, I made a dumb buy. Another couple things with this guitar I am not a fan of was the pick ups and licensed trem. I swapped the pickups for Duncan Blackouts and the trem for a Schaller. Onto other and better things, the play is amazing I love the finish and the frets, very decent quality work for being made in Thailand. This is a decent neckthrough guitar for cheap but don't buy it if ultimate sustain is what you're looking for. If that's what you're looking for in a guitar look for mahagany and or ash.

Wow, great guitar for the money. The bridge pick up sounds awesome and the neck is blazingly fast. After some initial string stretching, it stays in tune nicely. The guitar looks great and it plays as good too. I hope it is durable also, because I cant put it down. Would absolutely recommend one.

ESP LTD M-200fm

By The Great Skeptic

Ask me a question

I bought this guitar a while back. Since then I've put a lot of use on this guitar so I can give and honest, accurate rating to this insturment. I was disappointed in the wood type. This guitar has Agaithis wings on it, and any guitarist who has half his wits knows agaithis is completely unresonant and cheap. Thats one of two complaints I have. The other is the Floyd, but for the price, what would you expect? The Floyd is cheap. Even when perfectly balanced and oiled it squeaks and rattles. It DOES stay in tune though... One of my pleasures was the neck. Its a really good neck, nice and thin with neck-thru construction. The fretwork is good, still is. Eventually the pickups had to come out, but the stock ones were ok. The coil tap is fun. I use a Krank Rev head with two cabs underneath it. I know, thats a lot of power, and this guitar can handle that if you know how to work it. It sounds decent, its built decently, I have complaints about the wood and trem, but ultimately you get what you pay for here and I believe this guitar will stay with me for a long time.

Buy it.

By ITFFgtr

from Georgia

This guitar is niceeee. Definitely a GREAT deal. Usually guitars like this, with the Floyd Rose and the neck thru construction, are much more expensive. This is actually my first Neck-Thru guitar. I love it. It has so much easier access to the higher frets than a bolt on neck. The black cherry paint job is beautiful too. I had an EMG 81 / 60 active pickup set installed and this guitar is a beast. I definitely recommend buying this fine instrument.
