Good sounds for metal, crossover and nu-metal, great pick, good solid body. Good guitar for good price!!!!
I was hooked when I saw the design, and the hardware is just amazing. With the 18v mod on the pickups the guitar will scream. Great metal tone, but good cleans too. The EMGs can give you a very punchy clean tone, there is some distortion even if all effects are off on my board, but hey, this guitar just screams for distortion. Slap on a EMG 85 or 60 and get that dark rhythm tone at the neck position, the neck is fast and the string thru makes this guitar sustain forever
This is basically one of the best guitars I've ever played with. I have a metallic red version of this same esp model. The metal sound that comes out of this guitar are fantastic.
This guitar looks absolutely killer and it plays even better! It can deliver a wide array of different sounds and so can be used for many types of music. There's no doubt this baby was made to play hard-rock/metal. The EMG 81's are great, the finish rocks, the tribal inlay on the neck looks really cool.. If you like to play hard, this is the axe for you. A great buy!
I ordered the guitar with the next day shipping almost as soon as it came back in stock because I couldn't wait to get it. I was certainly not disappointed. the tone is absolutely amazing. It sounds crystal clear when played clean, and has some amazing pinch harmonics with distortion. It plays comfortably both sitting, or standing, and the guitar is really light. There is not a single bad point I can think of in this guitar! BUY IT!
I have wanted this guitar since it first came out. What most appealed to me was the fact it came with emg-81's already equipped on it, and the way it looks. After waiting for it to get in stock, I ordered it with the 1-day shipping, and I got it yesterday. The guitar is extremely light and very comfortable to play. The neck is comfortable, and fast, and the fret spacing is amazing. It creates a lot of deep tone, and sounds really good both clean and distorted. The body, and paint, and overall guitar construction is indescribably incredible. I recommend this guitar for intermediate to as experienced as you can get people. (The price is a little much for a beginner) get this guitar, you won't regret it.
I was actually going to get the esp mh400, but then I saw this thing, and I fell in love.... it looks killer, and it sounds even better. the EMG 81 active set will blow you away, nothing will come close. pair this baby up with a boss GT 8 , and your going to have the best tone ever, and the clean is absolutely beautiful too, its very crisp, and not muffled at all. its one of the best guitars you could buy, for an unbelievable price
Just like the above comments this guitar goes beyond the limits with more beauty in style and in sound! I will be honest I haven't been able to find another guitar I like when matched up agianst this HOTTIE! WOOOO I love this Guitar She Loves To SCREAM For Me!
This guitar can truly do some major metal riffage with the EMG 81 bridge 81 neck combo. The EMG actives make this guitar perfect for metal. Run it through a solid state amp and you'll get a monster crunch. Run it through a tube state, and by god you'll sound like Kirk Hammet or James themselves. The lightweight body makes it easy to hold and the body shape makes it suitable for standing or sitting, and its comfortable either way. The clean sounds this beast gives off are truly immaculate. All together 10 out of 10
Only one word describes this guitar, bad. It has two EMG 81 pickups which are the same pickups that Kirk Hammett of Metallica uses. This guitar has a very versatile sound it delivers either a very clean sound or the down and dirty heavy metal sound. It has the Set-Thru designed neck which gives maximum sustain. The gothic body looks killer with the see thru black finish, it has a purple tint to it, and the tribal inlays are the best I've ever seen. This guitar is well worth the price.
