Solid Guitar
WarL1ghT, 26.05.2019
I've bought this guitar because i needed a solid and good sounding axe to play with the band . And i've got to say , i'm not dissapointed at all , i'm actually very impressed

Pros:
- The Finish is incredible , it feels so good and you can sense the work that has been put into the instrument
- The Pickups are great , the output that they have is really good to play aggresive and punchy stuff , you can really work with the sound that this guitar offers . Me and my band are kind of a Heavy-Groovy Metal so if you're looking for a guitar to play similar stuff , this might be your way to go .
- The look of the guitar is awesome , really , It's a single cut with a matte finish and amazing decals on it , can't have anything against that

Cons:
- As you'd expect a Les Paul guitar to be , it's a bit heavy , not too bad though , so don't worry thinking it's weighting like a tank , but it's just a bit heavier than your regular standard style guitar
- I find that it's going out of tune regularly , i can't say if it's the lock-in tuners , or maybe i should've tighten the screws of the tuning keys tighter , i can't tell why is that , but it's not a tragedy considering it's not a floyd rose guitar neither a guitar with EverTune Bridge to stay in tune really really good , so i can't say it's a horrible thing at all .

Overall :
This is a solid choice , you're getting awesome sound for an aggresive and metalish type of play , the look and the finish of the guitar is just marvelous , and the cons are not even things that are impossible to work with . I recommend this guitar to anyone that's looking for a crunchy , punchy and rich metal sound . Combining this with an awesome Head amp and Cab , it will be a beast !

Amazing experience
13.12.2015
I have played it for one month, and I must say this is a super experience: very strong and heavy. It is very confortable when I press the string, easy handling, and you can perform diverse of heavy metal, together with Boss Metalcore and Marshall amplifier.
In general, this is one of the best choice, if you want a brilliant metal sound without paying too much.

can't go wrong
strk808, 13.05.2020
Great guitar for the price. The wood is pretty good and the guitar has some weight to it, sounds killer with the EMG pickups. Neck is also pretty good and the finish is as smooth as it can be, Definitely one of the best guitars I have ever played. Had some problems with the first one, the neck strap button was loose and fell immediately after using for the first time, but after a couple mails, it was sent back and replaced for another guitar. The return process should be easier for the customer but I still got a partial refund/compensation for the hassle, so it's all good.

An affordable metal version of the black beauty
elky, 05.11.2019
Where do I begin with this "black beauty". This is my first ESP/LTD and I am very happy that I chose one.

The vintage black finish together with the gold hardware is a classic beauty very well implemented in this model.

The sound of the guitar is solid. Very full body with amazing clearness even when playing acoustically (something that was very surprising). Moreover, the EMGs don't need any introduction and as expected they produce a very high quality of chugging.

Together with my Orange Dark I find it very easy to achieve similar tone to albums like Death Magnetic and Hardwired... :D

Very minor detail is that the binding of the guitar in some corners could be a bit higher quality but its barely noticeable and I don't mind.
