In a hall full of guitars, amps, cabinets and other musical instruments that seemed to stretch out for 30 feet, it was my time to pick the guitar that I will make my own. After playing with an $80 dollars for 8 months, I think I was ready for that next guitar. I must have looked for at least an hour. I only had about $200, so that slimmed my choices down. Then I saw it on a stand just waiting to be picked up. More joy came to me after I found out it was only $160.
I like this guitar. Ive now been playing for a year and a half, and I still have it. This guitar is hardcore. Its now your regular axe. This sleek, thin, wine colored axe doesnt only look good, but plays great.Its dual humbuckers really expand the tone of this guitar. Unlike those other axes, this one is more raw and takes skill to play. Its got a licensed floyd rose, so the strings dont go out of tune. I am in a rock band, so while the drums are getting hammered and the bass is fast, I slice everybodys eardrums open with this guitar.Its good to play, it looks good, and sounds good too.
This guitar may have some good points, but it also has a few minor details. I dont like the plastic tuners. Everytime I try to tune the guitar it feels like they will just snap off. Thats pretty much it for the bad things though.
This instrument is in great shape. It has no blemishes, 24 frets, dual humbuckers. 2 knobs, 1 for volume, the other one for tone. It has a 3 way pickup selector switch, and a floyd rose. Its an axe styled guitar but with attitude!
If you wanna get that sound of bands like metallica, iron maiden, black sabbath, then this is the guitar for you! I dont know how much it costs brand new, but if its anything close to this price then you surely are benefitting from it.
Already I want to say that this is not exactly an ESP LTD MH-100 but a ESP LTD MH-100 QMNT. The picture you see on the sheet of the product is misleading because the guitar is not really the same. This guitar is made in the United States. The pickups are ESP humbuckers. Finally is the complete description can be found here https://www.espguitars.com/guitars_mhnt.html it easier ...
A classic round, pleasant and not too wide, which is interesting for the rather small hands.
Access to acute is more than easy.
The guitar is very light, comfortable, nice.
This guitar suits my style of music is metal. I also think it is rather made for that. But then with an amp Line 6 Spider II 112 like mine, it is not known to have much more than a distortion of the metal with huge ... The pickups are ESP entry level so do not expect great sound, as on all the guitars in this price range elsewhere. This does not mean either that the sound is bad, far from it! With a good amp nag like my Line 6 you can get sound to Slipknot, Hatebreed, Throwdown, ...
I use it for 2 weeks and I am very satisfied. I think already, one of his greatest strength is its appearance. It is simply magnifque! This is a great guitar for the price to which it is sold (382 euros in the shop where I bought it). I think I would not change more guitar for quite some time: if I have to change something, it will be only the microphones, or ropes, but I definitely want to keep the guitar in itself because it is superb!
