Well I didnt know what to expect to be honest. For the price I just wanted a cheap single cut to mess around at home with, I guessed I would be facing some high or sharp frets, Maybe some bad electronics, but nope. Flawless. The fit and finish is flawless, the sound is just as good as any high end single cut worth 5 times the price. Binding, fret board, paint and lacquer, Bridge, machine heads, flawless. I am totally stunned. Put new string on, Quick set up and so far I now have the lowest action of all my guitars without any fret buzz or choking out. And I own 3 Gibson Les Paul's. So that says something.
Extra thanks for such quick delivery from Thomann and good job LTD! Ill take 5 more of these any day :)


My first LTD
Artem Kudryavtsev 01.06.2021
I already have an electric guitar, it's Epiphone Les Paul Standard. It's great guitar and I like it.
I play in a band and we use Standard D tuning.
But I also wanted to play music in Standard E/Drop D tunings, so I needed another guitar. And my final decision was this beautiful ESP LTD EC-256.
Because it has a split coil, I thought that I will use it for Standard E/Drop D, but my guitar luthier said, that it would be better to set LTD to Standard D and Epiphone to Standard E.
So I accepted it, and now I play on the LTD in my band.
In comparison with the Epiphone, the LTD is 1 kg lighter, 1 cm thinner, so it is more comfortable to play while you stand.
The LTD's neck is thicker.
The LTD is made in Indonesia, my Epiphone is made in China.
As for me, both guitars sound pretty the same. The sound is good, but maybe I'll change pickups (on the Epi too), and my guitar luthier also said this.
Also he said that guitar is good, it has better bridge, but tuners are better on the Epi (it has Grover tuners). And he likes the Epi more, because it sounds more like a Gibson.
As for me, I also like the Epi more, but the LTD is also great.
The LTD has more metal shape:) The Epiphone is more classic.

La mejor guitarra calidad precio
DionObsidianWhale 28.12.2018
La guitarra extremadamente comóda y versatil, la he utilizado para tocar en vivo y para grabar. Es mas ligera que una les paul común y se siente muy solida y consistente. Ademá el knob de tono realmente marca una diferencia y te deja realmente encontrar un tono al gusto de uno al contrario que en muchas otras guitarras que siempre debe estar al maximo, ademas de esto tiene una caracteristica pull-up que separa la pastilla humbucker del mastil a un single coil que te otorga aún mas control sobre tu tono. La afinacion siempre se mantiene estable por mucho tiempo que esté tocando o con la intensidad con la que lo esté haciendo. A todo esto se le añade una acción muy cómoda que hace que no te den ganas de despegarte de la guitarra. Las pastillas tienen un tono ideal para cualquier tipo de musica ya que ni son muy suaves ni estan muy saturadas y son muy moldeables. De momento no he tenido ningún problema con esta guitarra y se la recomiendo a cualquiera que busque comprar una guitarra con total garantía de que va a recibir calidad a cambio de su dinero.

Satt ist der Sound und hässlich ist sie auch net.!
Slaw 28.07.2020
Wenn die Tonabnehmerrahmen nicht so Billig wirken würden, währe sie eine Diver. Stimm stabil und der Sound echt flexibel, soll heißen nicht nur Hardrock steht ihr gut.
Die Drehknöpfe lassen sich für mein Geschmack zu leicht drehen.
Sie klingt wie sie aussieht einfach gut bis sehr gut.
