A review of the ESP LTD EC-256 BLK electric guitar

aDeadMeme, 14.08.2018
I am really pleased with all the things this guitar offers, such as versatility, excellent sound and good quality.

The guitar came in good packaging and didn't have any factory mistakes. Using the tuners, volume and tone knobs feels good and sturdy. The cable-jack is a bit loose, but it isn't a big issue. I think the guitar strings are 10s, they give off a nice tone.

The finish I think is beautiful, the gold hardware gives it a more vintage vibe and the black paint is good too. The paintjob is a magnet for fingerprints and dust tho. This is a minor thing, not to worry about.

This guitar has LH-150 pickups wich in my opinion sound excellent and warm. Using the coil tap feature you can get more clearer tones. This makes it a very versatile guitar.

Like I said earlier, this is the perfect guitar for me, I haven't had any problems with it. I recommend it, it is the most bang for your buck guitar you can get.

best value for money

22.12.2015
this guitar is amazing! I was interested on changing pickups and tuners but it is not necessary! All works fine and the stock esp pickups are very warm with some aggressive mids..Looks pretty enough with a nice work at the creamy binding! I would recommend this particular model for value for money satisafction and a guitar that does not get you unhappy with any style of music!
