The MH series is a decent shred/metal axe. It looks fantastic, has good pickups for the genre, and has a locking tremolo system. However, the neck is reeealllly chunky depthwise, but the string spacing is small and cramped. The neck isn't really comfortable for me to play, to be honest. The tremolo also seems a bit on the stiff side, as far as how easily it operates in dives and pulls. It's not an expensive guitar, but I have seen better quality hardware on guitars in this price range.
The guitar does sound good, especially for the target demographic. Most people buying this guitar will be using it to play a lot of metal, shred, maybe some fusion, and that's probably about it. The EMG pickups will do very well for this type of thing, so that's a plus. The 81 is bright, bold, cutting, and aggressive, but with a ton of clarity, and the 85 is warm, solid, and buttery smooth. The set-thru construction increases the sustain of the notes, and that helps give the tone a nice bloom.
All in all, this is a good guitar. It's just not for me - that's purely for the reasons of hand comfort. Also, I tend to like more versatile instruments, and this guitar was built basically just for heavy metal. If the styling is right for you, and the neck is comfortable, then this is probably a guitar you should check out at some point. ESP's LTD line is pretty good quality for the price range. I don't like the tremolo's feel, but maybe you will.

MODEL manufactured in core.micro EMG 81 (bridge) & 85 (handle) on my MODEL? fixe.un bridge volume, Tone slecteur 3positions.je 9 parsque put the microphones are not spittables & a can fail sometimes.
Channel trs enjoyable, I was nervous as it is varnished like the body, but in the end was not any break points.
Access in acute very easy.
trs weight is reasonable, the guitar has balance, beautiful and more ..
its easy to get in my cas.je plays mainly on the channel to a saturated & dbrouille it. the clean sound is excellent too.
It should trs well to my style (mtal / hxc) & must be able to cover other bcp little we can spitter one of the two microphones.
I use it with one Engl fireball.parfait for me, having said that difficult to have a clear well propre.c is not to clean that I chose this stuff, hence my note.
Environ.j been using 6 months' love its simplicity & its history fficacit.seule microphones me ESG will be a fast rgl.
I tried other models, yes, but not thoroughly enough not to regret my choice a long time!
I got a 1000 euros on the net allemands.c 'prix.ce is not the case according to new horizons moi.elles are more versatile but I see that has more and I can not find that justifies the cart at least 400 euros between the two MODELS.
I would do u this choice, for the moment no other scratches do I like most in this price range.
However, a precision. the guitar was not found in france.vraiment damage seen the machine and in addition it is again for sale on German sites but more expensive than before. supposedly higher prices by the manufacturer .. on the principle has le to pay such a price as she scratches worth less then 6 months before 9
