Ok, this sick piece of equipment was my first guitar. I picked mine up about 2 years ago, and havent stop playing since. Just this guitars looks alone pull you in. but when you start playing, its so smooth, easy to bend and do all of that fun stuff. Has a great metal tone and can also play clean with ease. if you want awesome tone without the Gibson price this guitar's for you.

I have had my f-100 for a little over a year and i hate it. it was fine when i first started playing, but man, now it sounds horrible. When you play this guitar and then listen to your friend play right after with his les paul, then you know just how bad it is. my advise, don't get it. save for a up for something sick, like a PRS.

    Comments about ESP F-100FM Electric Guitar:

    I bought this 4 years ago to upgrade from the little Behringer Strat i use to have. I love this guitar! The tone does not match that of a vintage fender or a gibson BUT its still a good guitar. I know some people have complained of fret buzz but honestly since getting new strings (D'addario Rock/Jazz stings) and tweaking the bridge a bit, i didn't have any at all. I use mine for all kinds of styles (punk, rock, metal, blues, etc.) Its defiantly one i wont have to mess with at. Good pick ups, great feel. I recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable LTD to purchase. As for fret buzz, take it to someone who knows more about guitars or mess with the bridge a bit. Its easily fixable.

    Amazing guitar!

    By Maxwell Reeder

    from Chicago, IL

    Comments about ESP F-100FM Electric Guitar:

    I absolutely love this guitar. I've had it for 2 weeks so far and can't put it down. It has a sleek, sexy appearance, with no other guitar looking quite like it. This is essentially my first electric guitar (I've always played acoustic). My fingers fly up and down the neck! It's SO easy to play! And the tone is PERFECT - honestly I don't see a need to get a more expensive electric any time soon because this one leaves NOTHING to be desired.

    Comments about ESP F-100FM Electric Guitar:

    I love this guitar, not only does it look really cool for metal and rock but it sounds amazing for the price. I've used it for recording and for gigging, and it works great for both. also its not too light and not too heavy, gives enough sustain and plays very well. of course there are better guitars out there but when it comes to bang for your buck, this guitar is totally worth every penny!

    Not impressed.

    By musicman9901

    Comments about ESP F-100FM Electric Guitar:

    I had saved up some money and was so happy to finally have a guitar I really liked. It played just fine for a couple months and sounded decent before it started having some serious issues. I had noticed a few spots on the neck where it was buzzing. At first it wasnt too bad but steadily progressed so I brought it back to get fixed. The place told me they set it up again, changed the strings and inspected it but found nothing overly wrong. I left with 40$ less in my wallet but was happy to have things fixed, or so I originally thought. The buzzing came back and steadily progressed to the point of being completely unplayable because of the neck having such a bad twist. Also, there is a nasty green looking mineral spot on the neck too right when I got it. I was a novice at the time but have learned to look closer at anything I intend to buy. sadly, the guitar now just sits and collects dust. I highly doubt I will ever buy from ESP again. Since then, I have bought an Ibanez RG Prestige and have been thoroughly happy, too bad I dropped close to $600 on the LTD to learn the lesson the hard way. Maybe I just got a "dud" but a guitar like that should not have left the factory.

    Comments about ESP F-100FM Electric Guitar:

    This Guitar is just insane! not only does it look sexy, but the tone on this baby is incedible! Its great for soloing and rithm guitar!Ive played more expensive guitars before, and i have to say, this guitar may have been alittle better than any i have ever played. Get this guitar! One note and you'll fall in love.

    Chinese, but NOT Garbage

    By Diceman-Fq2VP

    from MidWest

    Comments about ESP F-100FM Electric Guitar:

    My "arsenal" consists primarily of high end and vintage USA made guitars. Gibson, Guild, Fender, etc. I also have some Japanese Ibanez models floating around. I feel that this fact is important, as I'm not just some psyched out 14 year old who just got his first guitar as is the case with many if not most reviews of this guitar. The ESP F100 does NOT have a flamed maple "top" or "cap," it is a veneer. That is the only remotely negative comment I have about this guitar (and it isn't worth mentioning aside from the fact that it is advertised as such). This guitar has very decent fret work, plays great, quality hardware (ESP relabeled Gotoh, perhaps?), nice finish (a couple of minor flaws), and great sounding pickups. This will be the guitar that I lean up against my couch and play daily. It is an incredible bargain at under $300. Most of my guitars get sent to a luthier for a setup, and most require some fret leveling done. Not this one. Most of my guitars get new pickups installed (the stock pups in my Gibson '58 Reissue Les Paul were terrible). not this one. This review is not gratuitous in any way. The ESP F100FM is a fantastic guitar and a great bargain, even for those with discerning tastes and high end gear.

    Not bad for the money!

    By Brandon-S99OA

    from Philadelphia, PA

    Comments about ESP F-100FM Electric Guitar:

    I mostly play mid to upper range guitars but was looking for a decent axe that I could leave tuned down. For the money I paid for this guitar I was impressed. I didn't expect much so it was a pleasant surprise. I replaced the pickups with a set of EMGs and this thing is a solid metal guitar with awesome sustain. I would highly recommend this for the beginner or intermediate player. Or somebody looking for a very nice project to hot rod.
