    I have had this guitar since 2007 so I speak of this instrument with some experience. Right out of the box mine was set up to play fairly well however not to my liking. I am experienced with Floyd Rose bridges so it was no big deal for me to adjust it and its been fine ever since. I had no issues sound wise from the stock pick ups but did upgrade them to SD's. No problems with the truss rod or neck, in fact I haven't had to make an adjustment yet. The finish on the hardware does fade a little but I have had no issues with it going to bare metal or rusting. The finish on the guitar it self is bullet proof, good old poly finish. I love the body contours very comfortable to play, standing or seated and the neck is slim and fast. If you have issues with the neck "sticking" while you move your hand around the fret board just hit it with #0000 steel wool. Listen I've played the sh!t out of this guitar for almost 4 years now, heck I even took it to IRAQ for a year and this thing is still kicking @ss. I would recommend this guitar to any one, any time any where. Buy it, you'll love it.

    The guitar does have a lot of potential. I got it used and in "very good condition" Not true, I had to refret the guitar since half of frets were almost out at treble side. When I looked inside the trem cavity the previous owner made a huge wood cut probably to allow the trem's block to float a lot more. The Floyd Rose special is really cheap and poorly made. The low e saddle screw was stripped,so I had to replace it too. Now after a couple of hundreds more. The guitar is back in shape.

      Comments about ESP MH-50 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

      I bought this guitar about a year ago and love it! For this little amount of money there is no better guitar that you could possibly buy. This guitar is solid. It's made incredibly well, feels great and plays great.
      If I had to say anything negative I would say that the Floyd Rose is a little bit of a pain to tune (when it actually needs to be tuned). Basically though, I've only needed to tune this guitar once, maybe twice since I bought it!
      The only other negative things I can really say are about the pickups. They could be a little bit better (but what can we expect with this price tag). I don't mind them though and you still get some great sounds out of this thing regardless.
      I love this guitar and highly recommend it for anyone interested in playing metal or any hard rock style of music.

        This guitar is fantastic. I've been into a few music shops and the guitars just didn't feel right. Got this one shipped. There's no going back... Great rockabilly sound. If you play Doom metal, this guitar gets crunchy and filthy. I highly recommend this guitar if you don't have alot of money. GET IT!

        Comments about ESP MH-50 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        can't beat these MFers!(musicians firends_ers)
        Just got it & opened her up2 check'er out! It's not really 4 me, my daughter wanted a sweet blk gtr, well I'm sure she's gonna freak! I'd gotten her the Washburn Hanna Montana elec gtr a couple years ago & she grew outta that HM phaze, so neglected her practice, but I'd given her my Little Martin acc/elec that she's been progeressing on. I'll tell U what, this is better than the 1st real guitar I got 4 Xmas. Enitially, I'd thoght, the blemmish was between the bridge & the pick-up, but was actually @ the base of the f/r bridge, wow what a steal, tho! I'm kinda jealous...
        Except 4 the blemmish, which I knew was there b4 buying, was the bomb digety!
        killer!

        Awesome axe for the money

        By Les Paul Rules-OSFfG

        from Rochelle, IL

        Comments about ESP MH-50 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        I wanted to buy a decent quality guitar for a Metal style pickup upgrade. What I got far exceeded my expectations. What a fabulous instrument! Unparalled quality for the money. The pickups are decent too. (I threw some SD Blackouts in mine, and this guitar is now a total BEAST!) The Floyd Rose takes some patience to get used to, but once you figure it out, its all good. Out of the box, this is a great intermediate level guitar for Hard Rock, or Metal styles. This was my first experience with ESP, as I usually play Les Pauls, and I was blown away by my MH-50. Buy it with confidence.

        Comments about ESP MH-50 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        This guitar for the money is a GREAT buy!! For the price this guitar stacks up to Professional Grade instruments ranking in the thousand range. The only complaint i had was i had to adjust the action when i recieved it is all. The pickups are good for stock pickups but if you got the money drop some EMG's or Dimarzio's in it...But other than that it is GREAT!!

        Some irritating flaws

        By Deano-Wo2h0

        from Colorado

        Comments about ESP MH-50 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        I've owned the MH-50 for over a year,putting alot of miles on it along the way.For the price it's a decent guitar it seems to stay in tune relativly well, and has nice action/playability.While the pickups are kinda cheap they seem to get the job done.Also the guitar seems very reliable, I haven't had any problems that would render it unplayable.On the other hand,the neck doesnt seem very stable, meaning truss rod adjustments often,and I still end up with some string buzz.The biggest problem is the fret work, there is a gap between the fretbord and ALL frets on the high E string side of the guitar.So if you happen to get the high e pulled off the top of the neck (it happens) the string gets caught in the gap and can cause some troubles during a song/gig.The only other thing is the finish on the hardware, not great but OK for this price range.All in all I recommend this as a beginners guitar for someone who wants to play metal and hard rock on a budget, but beware you'll probably end up upgrading eventually.

        it's a great guitar for intermediate shredders. it has great tone and great value for the price. there are a few things though that i dislike: floyd rose trem they put on there is kinda crappy, yet still reliable, the action on my high E was set a little too high (prolly just a factory defect) and the pickups are kinda crappy as well, but again reliable, and finally the guitar frets after the 12th are pretty small. this is a great guitar for players that are learning to shred/ can shred.

        just buy it

        By Ender845

        from ohio

        Comments about ESP MH-50 Electric Guitar with Tremolo:

        i bought this guitar to replace my old spectrum guitar. ( spectrum is made by a company that also makes trampolines, enough said.) From the first chord i played it was love, i ran it through a line 6 spider III 75 watt amp and it just sounds amazing. the floyd rose is a nice addition and really helpful, the action is low which i love. the only bad thing about this is sometimes it can go a tad flat or sharp since it uses a floyd rose special bridge instead of orginal. this problem is easily fixed with the fine tuners on the back though. a great product and one i highy recomend
