ESP make some great shredder metal guitars. They excel in super strap styles of guitars as well as the overall sonic metal sounding guitars. They have a sub version of their guitars called LTD guitars which I believe is a branch of the ESP guitars but just made overseas. The usually have the same build specs and everything is the ESP guitars but just not American-made.
Electronics: Volume, tone (push-pull coil tap), 3-way slotted toggle
Bridge: Floyd Rose licensed
Binding: Natural (body), white (neck, headstock)
This guitar features a 25 1/2 inch scale and the bodies made of agathis with the quilt in maple top which is a unique selection of body wood. You get a maple neck with the rosewood fretboard. It also comes with two humbucker pickups which are active EMG pickups. This guitar is an overall metal ripping shredding guitar. You can use it with other styles of music but it really excels in the highly saturated rock to metal voicing music.
This guitar sounds fantastic when you use it was a nice middle amplifier such as an Engl amplifier or even a Mesa boogie amplifier. This guitar is designed to match up perfectly with the nice metal voiced amplifier so the pickups and the overall body to feel and everything is really designed to match those types of amps much better. This is a guitar this can excel and drop tuning suit don't be afraid to experiment with some low tunings or alternate tunings of the guitar.
I highly recommend guitar to anyone is looking for a good cheap and inexpensive guitar for metal music. They've been discontinued but you can find the used market fairly easily. They come in right around a few hundred dollars which is a great price for this guitar itself. The pick ups themselves are probably worse is much is the guitar is in the used market. So this is a great investment for someone looking to get grab a great sounding guitar is very versatile guitar at that too. When you can spend for a few hundred dollars nowadays won't get you a lot but it will get you a great sounding guitar was perfectly voiced pickups and would match a hard rock or metal sounding music.

Abelkain's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
See manufacturer ...
As against mediocre origins settings, the floyd is set too high, ditto for the mikes, sleeve too tight, a lot of Loose tricks if you have a good dealer, a full tower is a must for the silly sounds like it should ... As all sellers are awesome, my remark has no place tell me ...
Second on the other hand, they are real pigs these Indonesians because when we look closely there are plenty of small bending defects has cut the sickle, paint transitions slobbering limit, etc ...
However if we do not stick your head above it is superb anyway for perfection is at least 1000 Euros in addition, I had the ESP KH2 so I can compare, in addition to this one has more jaws view that the KH is commonplace.
Floyd holding up well, there's a little play in the vibrato rod, but it does, no detunes nuisance after dive bomb, yet I'm excited ...
I put 7 for sagouinés finishes.
The handle is hell, behind soft, quick access to the front with a really acute nickel (thank you the driver handle).
Level anything ergonomics mean, I would go so far as to say she is sexy (it's the first word that came to me ...) front as behind is round while staying aggressive ...
For sound, I was surprised, I did not think she would be as versatile for distos slap (not many medium on the bridge, I was rectified and the amp is a killer) for clear and well it also slams version humbucker is not great but once split is simply beautiful (I have a Fender and I'm a boring side its clear) especially the middle and neck position.
Top too, is that even the mikes were splitted bite and character distortion, it was still a surprise.
You can send the sauce widely (I make 'Tallica, via AC / DC who spins to Malmsteen to be on ACCEPT, and it does) after distos for extreme Death Metal style, I know and I' have not tested, can not be specific enough?
The right sound? Live in my Modefour Marshall crunch channel donf gain, EQ has 5 everywhere scoop Inrush and it is part, as said above, for more big distortion necessary to add med for my taste ... and it's gone.
Such a good sound with the original mikes I put 8 because usually I change mikes on my guitars, not.
For sound, I have already touched on the subject, I do not see what's I could not get it, if I want a Fender I take my Fender, and those of the beast are all more qu'utilisable.
Personally I play on Marshall, Mesa, Line 6 pedals with boss effects Korg Rocktron and line 6 again, we put the jack in it and that's it.
Mike side config perfect (I would have never thought that ESP original mikes) when a sound is not suitable splitt and that's it, I play with EMG 81/60/85 di Marzio Chopper and Dp and 59 of sh4 duncan jazz, I really do not think those sin by the toothless or personality.
I put 9, after the tastes and colors ...
I would try to make a mp3 demo on my space or audiofannzine, for those who do not.
I have ESP (KH2) Ibanez (several models) Fender Aerodyne, LTD ec 1000 30 anniversary custom, Bc Rich Kerry King Signature US jackson (Warrior, RR and kelly) a share for sloppy finishing it does not pale in .dropoff window
I wanted a guitar with floyd, splittable pickups has less 500E (I paid 499 with free cover) is the only really good I have tried the other had all the tps fault either mikes will suit me not the corny was ugly ... At first I found this convenais me.
Unforgivable on finishes, knobs and other settings problems, it's still 500 Euros, it is a substantial sum, which should result in a higher quality delivery.
Once properly set it is a true beast of competition, 'try before you buy other models designed with mikes and other infklam512 without personality.
500 Euros for great value for money, I do not regret, I bought it for rehearsals history of not lugging my big models, well, it will also make the scene, I really like it goes from roots modern like me ...

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
-2 EMG HZ-H4 with three possible positions (Manche, Manche - Tremolo, Vibrato)
-Licensed Floyd Rose Tremolo
-1 And 1 volume knob Tone knob Push and Pull, and a 3 position micro slecteur
Driver Channel 24 boxes with easy access to the treble!
Channel driver fairly flat and fast trs (What's ESP) with access to more than treble easily
Rather, lgre and comfortable to play sitting or standing, well equilibrated (it plunges pa of the head) and easy to use
Guitar-oriented rather Metal so it suits me well, I play Metallica, Maiden and the other group of the same kind, and I leave her a niquel looking good I think even a sound like a Slayer (live EMG )
-I play on a MG100DFX nothing without pedals, the clean and distortion of the amp! : D
-I prfre the sound of the microphone vibrato because for me it is one that passes the large distortion in mieu on the other hand avoid the neck pickup because it saturates with enough distortion, but going for clean sounds niquel
Guitar made for metal, but used for other style, buy one month ago on a Thomann.de 520 including shipping is a good value qualitprix for lovers of big sound with a good level of scratching, over time I will what choice do it again unless my budget is the lev I go to the MH 400, but otherwise I do it again this choice without hsitations! : P

sc@rface44's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Made in Korea. 24 frets, 2 humbucker EMG ESP.
floyd rose, Tone and volume push-pull on the knob of Tone.
handle end and terribly enjoyable hyper fast! DESTRUCTIVE
The handle is perfect is exactly what I wanted to play satriani, petrucci and other virtuosos VLOC.
Access in acute is simply amazing! we can do better.
the guitar is pretty lgre and very fine it is very enjoyable!
the possibilities of sound are tight thanks to the push-pull.
So yes ca ca suits my style: a big sound of Dream Theater with a set full of harmonics is terrible.
on my marshall it sounds very good.
I use it for now while I still have a lot of things and adcouvrir exprience with this choice I would do without hsiter
