LTD KH-603
Made in Korea.
24 jumbo frets, 2 EMG 81
original floyd rose
2 volumes 1 tone
NECK Maple Rosewood black patent


Handle very nice, easy to play fast.
Cutting for access to acute is impressive for a guitar cut les paul. There is no difficulty playing the last frets.
The ergonomics are excellent. The guitar is heavy but with a maple body and that form is what is expected of her. The sustain is long.
This guitar as his signature indicates is oriented metal, so yes we get a good metal sound, heavy, sharp and sustained. The guitar will certainly not rival other style especially in his clear face rivals more suitable. But his style can only put a 9 in his rhythm and a 3 solo violin and the wood does not compete with more upscale.


As said before it is suitable mainly metal and rock all styles well.
It can play any type of amp, but a good amp for powerful saturation and crystal clear sound is required. The power of the guitar tends to saturate the clean sound on the entry level amps.
The neck pickup gives us a fairly heavy and fat, in some very nice rhythm.
The bridge pickup is frankly sharp! saturated in it is a real razor you can go solo in the rhythmic deposition without changing it.
In his clear all depends on the song, the bridge pickup tends to recall the good old metallica live but really limited in the clear.
My preference is clearly for his easel in saturated!


I use it for several weeks now, I'm very happy: a heavy guitar to sustain intense, in his sharp and incisive. I tried many guitars before in jackson ibanez and bc rich, for the price it is hard to beat in this style.
With experience, I see no reason to change unless the style of music no longer suits you or you want an invoice for best guitar solos crazy ^ ^

LTD KH-603
Guitar made in core - 24 jumbo frets - EMG 81 neck and vibrato - original floyd rose! - 1 tone - two volumes - The handle is pretty strait and thus faster trs.


Channel so fast, and ACCS are acute optimiss up (and yes les paul shape, c is not always the top, but the there is room, the rear is dcoupe id ale) - However it is heavy (in my group, the other scratch was nicknamed the "rubble") Anyway, we get something for nothing, if a ring, c is that c is heavy and in this case has come!


Well let's be clear, we can not do jazz! it has the scratches to the mtal wild boar!
The distos are perfect! nothing wrong except that micro vibrato we do not do better than the emg 81!
A weakness? clean sounds ... a slap and it dry! they can mess with the effects (eg digitech!) But the top is to change the EMG 81 in neck pickup and replace it with a emg 89 ... The set then becomes an identical lag arkane absolute .... REFERENCE for a much less CHRE!


I've had a year and frankly it's the top ... one wonders how ESP can justify the cart with KH3! J've tried a few guitars and none of them comes to the ankle mtal ... (These rates) ... The report qualitprix is ​​excellent! 1400 Euros new and we can do better by talking a bit ... I got a 1100 + with the tui in! Compared the quality and finish (+ EMG 81 floyd original!) There's no better!

LTD KH-603
This guitar is made in Korea.
It has 24 jumbo frets and two humbuckers in bridge and neck ative.
The bridge is an original foyd pink!
There are two volumes (one for each pickup) and a tone.
Finally the handle is glued and especially driver!


The handle is how to say .. A big fat stick! but not huge huh! It is a fairly round and round well fast it is really very nice and very quickly got used to it.
Access to acute is better than a les paul Epiphone or Gibson from home it is really working and very ergonomic.
This is a guitar a bit heavy but it feels as the sustain!
However I would have liked a more curved to the side of the guitar for the rest of you.
The EMG 81 spit what happens when the sound it was easy!


This guitar is based metal and hard rock: You do not buy one if you like Kirk Hammet to the country blues. So it is ideal for our style of music!
I play with a Peavey Studio Pro 112 amp transistors remains but it's not bad at all: we feel the potential of EMG and the sound is very good if you make a good set.
In a scene I plugged into a JCM 2000 DSL 100 head and ... Heuchera! It sounds the palm mute assassin is the EMG deliver a sharp disto ca really pleased Harmonics sisaillé eardrums in the front rows (hehe). Finally on this type of amp that really scratching reveals what she has in the stomach and it's all good.
The clear sound of course is not his strong point but the volume knob is very progressive when a little finger nags gentlemen and ultimately a good foot and get a clear sound quite honest. The EMG 81 in serious position is not a bad choice because it sounds really differ from a position acute. So this pair of EMG 81 covers a range of sounds quite honorable for a guitar of this type.


I use it for 6 months, and I'm still fond as much when I play with.
I hesitated between several guitars before buying it (steve vai ibanez that was 1500 euros and Jackson), and what convinced me to her is his look with markers affects spiders and their skulls handle and its sound. Basically I liked everything!
I find excellent value for money given the equipment (original floyd emg active neck-..).
In any case much higher than the ESP version (1000 euros difference!) That does little more than a violin can be a bit better (this one is already impeccable).
I would do this choice with his eyes closed I adopted this literally scratching.

The Sorrow's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

LTD KH-603
- Guitar made in Korea, the serial number on the back of the head.
- 24 jumbo frets.
- Two EMG-81 (active pickups).
- Bridge: Floyd Rose original.
- Controls: two volume knobs (one for each pickup) and a common tone.
- In neck and driver.

That's exactly what I was looking at both the micro as the bridge, nothing wrong it's "good mechanics" and everything works great!


- The handle is a great surprise! I was expecting two things: either the buche that can be found on some Gibson or sheet of cigarette Ibanez RG ... Both wrists ache and hands on gibson becaufe I'm not around and my hand on the Ibanez breaks in the decision of the handle. KH-603 on either of these problems: the handle is neither too big nor too late, he married the majority of the curves of palms and offers a grip open and sweet at the same time: what is expected a sleeve, which is easily playable and enjoyable.

- Access to acute surprising: it forms a Les Paul as I expected once again to a disaster in terms of access to acute but not at all! No need to be a gymnast to access the 24th, I arrived without problems and without forcing.

- Ergonomics really good! Obviously you have to like the Les Paul shape. It is a treat for me: it is in place and is balanced (it looks neither to one side or the other). The only small "complaint" I could make it is that it is a bit "heavy" but be careful again nothing very difficult to overcome, it would really have problems with arthritis find it really is heavy. I'm a lightweight all dry and I have no problem ^ ^!


- First of all precision: this guitar is oriented metal! So do not be surprised if the sound cleans are not up to what you might find with an electro ^ ^! To give you an idea the clean sounds a bit like "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" by Metallica, but a little less cold and metallic, is a kind of "clean metal".
In terms of distortion, I think it is unnecessary to present the EMG-81. They work very well: accuracy, safety, grain very recognizable, very nice attack, incomparable power ... Short! These are the mics that I needed and I think the next guitar that I would have to buy will be installed automatically as j'aprécie their sound.

For accuracy I play with a Peavey Studio Pro 112 (65 watts into 8 ohms) and I am able to find a pannel of distortions impressive: it's going to the small Gentillet distortion, overdrive limit, Iron Maiden, the heavy distortion well Screaming Mayhem do without no loss of definition of power or anything in sound, it's caviar Medames, gentlemen! EMG-81 really are comfortable throughout the distortion!

Do not forget the enormous contribution of the handle is incredibly easy as it is both practical and sweet! A real motorway on which is fun to slide! Driver and appearance only add to this farandolle of positives!

The réglagles are fairly simple and the results are not expected to yield the desired sound quickly without getting lost in endless réglagles.

Noise level I take everything! Nothing to build clean not even surprises me with some time because it could limit réglagles do some funk! Is that of happiness!


Guuitare I use this for the past two months. No regrets! When I tried it I was really surprised by the quality of the instrument despite its price! ESP really at a problem they should have to sell at prices so low instruments of such quality!

I love it! Use the sounds, to ergonomics and beauty of it etc ... ! Nothing is lacking!
The price / quality ratio is exemplary for a guitar of this level I would have thought to put much more!
I tried many guitars before buying this one: Ibanez Prestige models through the Gibson SG ... And she stands out in my eyes widely at all levels.

With a little more experience I would do without hesitation that choice is really a beautiful instrument dott very high quality officiating in the Metal genre without giving up other styles of music sweeter! A beautiful guitar!
