Way better than I expected
Haik, 12.05.2019
Knowing the ESP quality and even with their budget line LTD I was expecting real value for money, but what I got is way better than I expected.
I cannot say enough good things about this marvelous instrument.
I am a difficult person in general when it comes to guitars, I have owned almost anything : les pauls, stratocasters, telecasters, jazzmaster, jaguar, SG, gretsch, so I know what a good quality and bad quality guitar is, i have been playing for 20 years ...
This guitar has stolen my heart. everything is sweet... the finish (mine is purple (yea i'm a prince fan) the sound, those humbuckers are really special, by the way Thomann take a note, the humbuckers come with a coil split so you actually can get a single coil sound as well, which is nice to have some extra colours on your palette, it is not noted in the description so i would definitely add this feature as I myself wondered wether it had a coil split and it does!
uff, anyways you gotta try one for yourself to see what i mean, but it is just light, comfortable, pretty to look at, playability is great and sound is awesome, what more can you want???

Unexpected quality!!
Renato Medurecan, 04.01.2019
Firstly, I want to say that this guitar is very well built and this particular color is really fascinating. I had finished setup in about 10 minutes, and I can't believe that I had more setup issues with my Gibson Les Paul tribute 2017, than with this LTD. The tone is woody and feels nice. The tuners are little hard, but they work fine and are staying in tune.

Secondly, the only "problem" with this guitar is that the frets are little bit rough (not sharp on the end), I mean you can hear the strings scratching the frets when bending strings, but it can be easily fixed with little polishing.
I don't want to use the sentence "Guitar for that price...", because this model can easily step up in front of many more expensive ones.

I am very happy with this guitar, and would like to thank Thomann for very professional customer service and help. Cheers!
