Product Description

The ESP LTD F100FM is a true Flame Maple Top electric guitar with dual ESP humbuckers, and a Tune-o-matic bridge that strings thru the body for incredible tone.
Guitar players went crazy for ESP's F body style when it was introduced a few years ago and now they completely floored us with how great this see-thru black top looks - especially at this amazing price. Other features include a basswood body, a maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, extra jumbo frets and black nickel hardware.

Double Action Truss Rods
All ESP/LTD guitars and basses feature a double-action truss rod design. Unlike a normal (single) truss rod, this one is adjustable in two different directions. This means that you’ll never run into a situation where the neck has run out of adjustment. Regardless of which ESP model you choose, you’ll get years and years of playing enjoyment.

ESP F Style Case
To protect and transport your guitar, ESP recommends the optional F Style Electric Guitar Case (#ESP CLFFF).

Incredible quality and tone for the price.
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I'll be completely honest here.. I wasn't too sure what kind of quality I'd be getting when I ordered it, but MAN.. ESP does it right. Excellent build quality, the tune-o-matic is set up perfectly, and this thing has damn near endless sustain. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The neck is a thin "u-contour" and it's extremely fast to play on. One of the reasons I went for this guitar is the fact that it has a "raw" neck. (no finish on it) This makes it nice for when you're going to be playing for a while, as I'm sure a lot of you know.. sweaty hands + finished neck = Sticky. :) One other thing I'd like to point out, is the fact that this guitar sits very comfortably in your lap. It doesn't want to move all over the place, or slide off your leg like some other guitars will.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The ESP Designed LH-150's that come equipped on this guitar really impressed me. Even played through my amp on the dirty/OD channel, if you roll back a bit on the tone and the volume, you can get a nice almost acoustic sound out of them. And the heavy stuff is amazing as well.. I can get sounds similar to Metallica, Opeth, and as mellow as 311 with some level experimenting.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Although I believe the Flamed Maple "top" is actually a veneer, it still looks amazing. And when you think about it, a veneer is just a very thin slice of the wood, so it's still true flamed maple.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Beyond satisfied with the quality of this instrument for the price. Although I don't own any other "entry-level" guitars, I've played many, and this one by FAR is better in every way, in my opinion.
