Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I love this guitar personally and it has become my go to guitar . It came set-up really good for me , I just threw on some 10's and been good . Good quality , nIce hardware , good pick-ups . SWEET . General Your general opinion of this product. If your looking for a lp style guitar and play different styles , look into the 401 with emgs and 24 frets . Nuff said . Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? tight , dark , Punchy . You can get alot of tones out of the emg 80, 60 set . if you have a el34 amp and some emgs you can nail a 80's thrash sound . This guitar excels at that type of tone . Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks good , hope to get the white one one day .
Great mid level guitar with great sound and great playability

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Ive been playing LTDs since I started playing guitar, 15 years ago. I never had the money for a real ESP, but I never felt the need to spend over a grand on a guitar, either...Im not a professional musician, so mid-grade gear works for me. I wouldnt have any worries about the reliability of this guitar. I had an LTD that I played for 7 years, one that I owned for about 2 years but was about 8 years old when I bought it, my other one that I currently own, I bought new and have owned for 3 years and have gigged with it extensively. Ive owned a few other over the years...they make great quality guitars that I wouldnt worry about in a gigging situation. General Your general opinion of this product. Its a great guitar, overall. Looks great, feels and plays great, sounds great. The EMGs are awesome, but my other guitar has EMGs, so I swapped these for some Dimarzios, just to have something different. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Its mahogany, so youll get a deeper tone than you would with something like alder or basswood...so within those parameters, yeah, it sounds great. Sounds like I would expect a mahogany guitar to sound. Very full and thick. Pickups make a HUGE difference. EMGs are tight and fast. The dimarzios are a little looser in feel and thicker in tone, which is what I was going for. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish looks great. I love figured maple tops, and I love the see through finish.
awesome tone

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very Well made and easily a dependable guitar. It's my main guitar for gigs and I have no worries that it won't be up to the task. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall this is a fantastic guitar. No problems with it what so ever. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It has that nice thick tone really close to waht you would get form a Les Paul, but the body is quite a bit lighter. When I first got it that was a concern but after plugging it in and playing with my band they all said how great it sounded. If you are playing heavy stuff it's hard to go wrong with EMG's. I especially like that it is the 81/60 combo. I love the attack of the 81 but the smoother mellow tone of the 60 is fantastic and really adds some versatility that you don't have with the 81/85 set up. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The Flamed maple top with the trans black finish is great. Looks tough but still has a touch of elegance. I really like the black nickel hardware that come on this guitar, it really rounds out the look nicely.
