What a awesome guitar??
What is your opinion of this product?
I was skeptical at first when I bought this guitar. I love ESP guitars and I broke one of my guitars I use for my band. I had two weeks to replace it. I did not have much money for a new one but, I saw this one and thought. Well, let’s give it a try. It is light weight. The action on it is as good as a high end guitar. As in price. I have plenty of guitars I use but, this one is now my favorite.

Best bang for the buck
This is the first guitar I have had in this price range that didn't need the strings replaced immediately. The SIT strings are quality that help give the guitar it's heavy tone.
Just got it but it is a very solid piece.
Your general opinion of this product.
Beautiful guitar. Fit and finish is top notch and the vintage style is buttah!
The neck is slim without feeling cheap. Frets are level and polished nicely. No fret buzz.
Very dark. I can't see wanting to change the pickups anytime soon.
The distressed finish is very well done and not overdone. The pictures don't do it justice. The binding around the headstock is a nice touch.
Action was spot on.

My new main axe
Overall great quality as far as I can tell.
n/a haven't had it long enough.
Your general opinion of this product.
This is an awesome guitar. This thing should really cost much more money.
Plays great. thinner shaped neck. Tall frets.
In humbucker mode the tone leans toward the dark side, but the coil split mode brightens up a lot.
It has a cool worn or vintage look to it, however if you look really close on the side of the neck the paint overlapped the binding a tiny bit. The finish on mine is black satin. Would have been nicer if it was gloss.
Out of the box it had great action and intonation all the way up the neck. Only minor adjustments to get it perfect.

Great Deal on a Great Guitar
One of the first things I did was change the pickups so I got to see the factory wiring up close and personal. Great job here. No sloppy solders, no paint marks anywhere. Very nicely setup.
I've had the guitar for around a month. I gig it. I drop it. I spill beer on it. It works night after night. So far its very reliable.
Your general opinion of this product.
First time ordering a guitar online which made me nervous and I knew I would have to send it back because I wouldn't like the way it felt. 2 days later I received it in the mail, plugged it in and WOW. Perfect feel right out of the box. I did some adjusting that I do to all my guitars and BAM! I found MY guitar.
Feels similar to a Les Paul, BUT half the weight. A real back saver. Think of a LP that has been turned into a Hot Rod and that's pretty much this guitar. Feels absolutely perfect to me and I have been a strictly Fender man for about 10 years now. Thin neck. Not as thick as even my strat or Showmaster necks. Feels similar to a LP/SG neck but thinner and much much more comfortable.
With stock pickups - Very middle of the road. Not too hot, thin or too much of any one tone. Bland. the push/pulls help a little, but of course You will NOT get a Strat sound out of anything but a Strat. I had to switch the pickups. With Duncan JB/'59 - this thing screams but you can hear every little vibration in the scream. Beautiful cleans, not too trebely not too bassy. Well rounded sounding guitar.
I have the Gold Top version. Beautiful. The vintage finish is a little different than the pic but overall this thing is a beauty.
Action is perfect. Let me say that again. The action is perfect.

LTD EC256 AVB
For $400 this guitar seems very, very well made. Fit and finish are smooth and even. No visible issues that I can speak of... And I gave it a very thorough going over when I got it out of the box.
Again, only had it for a few days.
Your general opinion of this product.
Very nicely appointed for the price.
Neck feels very nice. Guitar has a decent heft to it without being too heavy. Overall seems very comfortable so far.
A touch on the darker side but I feel that it can get to just about anywhere tonewise.
Finish was exactly what I expected. Aged/worn looking in a flat black. Very nice.
Action is a bit high out of the box. But was consistent from string to string. Frets were in good order minus a few spots were the ends were a bit sharp.
