One fine metal guitar.
By: Stewman from Ohio
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It's made a lot better than I was expecting from a chinese mid-priced guitar. ESP/LTD are known to be very strict when it comes to QC, so maybe this shouldn't have surprised me. I expect that will be very dependable.
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar has surpassed my expectations. I was a little nervous when I heard the newer Ltd's were being made in China, but this is one fine instrument.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Again, huge tone. Glassy and clear. EMG's sound great in mahogany.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is quite nice and durable. I accidentaly clipped the top corner on a door frame while walking through my house. The finish did not come off, or even crack. There tiny flecks of overspray in a couple of places, but it is hardly noticable.
