Used for metal personally and recording pop music for clients. Not sure about blues tunes because EMGs. These are VERY high output and very crisp, they clip the input of my kemper which none of my other guitars do.
In its price range, this guitar is probably among the best, well worth the money, and an absolute bargain when discounted.
Frets are done well, zero sharp edges, locking tuners are a big plus, nut width feels closer to 43mm, neck is a very comfortable thin C, heel joint is ultra comfortable, the craftmanship and hardware are worth this price alone. It was out of tune because it's December but tuning it up revealed that the string height and intonation were set up PERFECTLY (big thumbs up, thomann). Cosmetics are not perfect but they are very good - the binding has a few wiggly lines, and the quilted maple top is not the best looking piece out there, but these are really minor things. Playability and sound are absolutely amazing, better sounding here than the same EMG 81 I had in EC1000. Handles both standard and lower tunings well. People, please avoid the MH2015 (fat body with a REALLY fat neck; that guitar is nothing like the MH series) and buy this one instead, or even MH401. Overall I'm really happy with this guitar.

This is now the second LTD I got sent and unfortunately this does not meet my expectations. To simplify the assessment, I categorize the rough points below and write down the positive [+] and negative [-] aspects in it.

Playability: [++]
No matter which LTD, the 350 series or higher, feels terrific. The playability is probably one of the best, which may be due to the slim, but not "brettigen" neck. The string distance to the fingerboard is pretty low and you can reach the high frets without any problems. Anyone who has ever played this neck design will know what I mean.

Sound: [+]
Many may criticize the EMGs here, but I think the pickups are great. In the Zerre, the bridge PU, an aggressive and clear sound emerges and at the neck a more bassiger. The Master Volume and Master Tone controls let you set the EMGs for beautiful clean parts as well, allowing you to cover many styles. Therefore, you should initially play something on the controls, so you can find the other sound worlds. Acoustically, the guitar sounds very soft and resonates well.

Features: [/]
The tuners work well and keep the mood stable. In the box there are a few Allen keys, for the neck post, the bridge and poti knobs. Otherwise, the box is empty, but well padded. The rest, like Toggleswitch etc., is not worth mentioning and rather normal.

Processing: [---]
Deluxe is on the headstock on it, unfortunately, is not really in it. The processing is partly dirty and many little things add up. The processing I compare with other LTDs and therefore close my negative aspects.

The first guitar was missing:
- a grub screw of the bridge
- Binding was too dirty
- some construction dust was in the pores of the fingerboard
- very small bumps and dents in the paint
- very loose toogle button (dropped right when first used)

The second LTD, looked better already. But again the same game:
- dirty bindings (especially at always visible places)
- small glue on the fingerboard
- strange dents and bumps in the paint (very few)

Appearance: [+]
The Powerstrat look is very nice and the Clouded maple veneer too. A little more symmetry would be nice, but you have to be lucky. The hardware and frets are clean and shine classy, ??the EMGs too ..

For a while I was in a conflict, whether to send the guitar back or not. Were not these really stupid processing errors / problems, I would like the LTD - so not! I guess I have not been lucky this time ..
The rest (sound, optics and playability) are fair for the name Deluxe and score the most. Just because my experience is bad, yours must not be bad either. Give the guitar a chance and maybe you'll be lucky and get the LTD of the LTDs !! [as I did then;)]
