Great look and tone but unfortunately with quality issues
kostasb, 05.09.2020
On first look, the instrument is gorgeous so I took a moment to admire it after unboxing.

Straight out of the box, there were minor tooling marks on the headstock and the bridge.
Tuned to E standard and was greeted with a buzzing A string. After <1 hour of playing the G string snaps at the tuner head, turns out the string hole was poorly shaped and the string was resting on a sharp edge.

Sent photo to Thomann support and they were fantastic, responsive and eager to help, immediately sent me a new tuning machine.

Removed all strings to replace them with Paradigm 10's (had D'Addario XL originally) along with the problem tuner, found that the bridge was loosely bolted and was moving by a mm or so, tightened it down.

After this I changed the tuners for Schaller M6 Pin locking because I was sceptical about the quality of the LTD ones and didn't want more issues.

I still have the buzzing A string which I haven't been able to fix it with truss rod and saddle adjustment. Will try different string gauge, otherwise will take it to a technician.

Also, the volume knob is way too loose and changes volume level unintentionally. I need to tighten it somehow.

Frets are polished and fret edges are well rounded.

Sound wise, the tone is fantastic. Thanks to the Black Winter pickup the sound is full, round and somehow dark, pairs beautifully with high gain, it will definitely cover most extreme metal genres. The split coil sound is also amazing, it has a slight "acoustic" feel to it, sounds crisp and clear.

Looks absolutely astonishing, however the finish is a fingerprint and sweat stain magnet.

Overall I do like this guitar but have already been through a lot with it even though I've barely used it. I am sorry LTD, but I really hoped for better quality for the price.

die Metal Axt
igipop, 02.05.2020
da hat ESP wirklich was tolles hinbekommen. Gute Verarbeitung, tolles schlichtes Desing. Die Gitarre ist ein echter Hingucker. Der Sound ist wirklich hammer. Die Pickups röhren krass, es ist eine wahre Metal Axt.

Simple et sans fioriture
Warman, 21.04.2020
A la recherche d'une guitare simple et sans fioriture pour jouer du metal et cette guitare, c'est imposé comme un choix intéressant :
- 1 micro chevalet qui envoi
- 1 Volume
- Mécanique à blocage
- Chevalet Fixe

Côté Son, c'est pas très polyvalent, elle a un partie pris, et il faut la prendre pour ce qu'elle est : un superbe instrument pour pour jouer du metal.
Du Heavy au Death, tout passe... Avec une mention spécial pour le Thrash.

Fabrication Coréen impeccable, aucun défaut sur mon modèle et livrée très bien réglée.
La guitare est confortable et le manche idéal (un peu le même genre de sensation que les manches Charvel).
Bref, très content de mon achat!
