Amazing

By Nicholas Haglund

from Davison, Michigan

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for almost three months now. And I love every minute of it. This guitar has so many features that appeal to all sorts of people. I personally like it for the 24 frets. It lets me go way up high so I can get some higher bends than before. The through-body stinging is cool also. I have a fender and those guitars can't hold a note. But with this, it seemes like forever! This thing has some wicked looks too. I would also get the coffin case if you want to protect it, especially since its the only case it fits in.

Amazing

By Alex

from buffalo, ny

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. it is a bolt-on but the joint starts at the 17th fret and its rounded so you have a really good reach. Alot of people complain about the pickups but they sound good to me. i've had this guitar since Christmas '08 and it hasn't given me any problems yet. This guitar is good for anything from a 50's style johnny be good song to black sabbath and i love it. i have owned two other guitars and bought this since im on a budget and i don't regret it. for the price its could get six stars.

I miss it and I'm kicking myself

By 414 Deathmetalist

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

I had this beast until my dumb self broke the truss rod (not ESP's fault at all), and when I had it I put an EMG passive in there and it was the most brutal tone I had ever heard. In the past I have went through a handfull of guitars that I regretted getting later but the only thing I regret about this guitar is breaking the truss rod. My word of advice GET IT and take good care of it.

Simply Beautiful

By JJ

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

When I first decided to get a second guitar, I never would've thought that there were any Forest models here in the states. I mainly thought that they were only available in Japan but it seems hat I was wrong! When I got this back yesterday after it needed a left-handed setup, I cranked the Gain up to 10, turned the volume, oh man... those pickups give it the most UNBELIEVABLE crunchy distortion I've ever heard from any guitar. Black finish is nice, basically everything about it is sexy. I definatley recommend it to anyone looking th buy another guitar for a reasonable price.

Great guitar

By Justin

from Oceanside, Caly

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

I picked this guitar up while I was at guitar center and was melted away at the sound. I think this guitar may have more ballz behind it then my 7 string schecter. It has a seriously low bass and a insanely high gain which is perfect for showing the man who's boss. I bought this guitar a few days after playing it and I have a huge smile everytime I play it

Awesome Guitar

By Brandon Floberg

from Tacoma, WA

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

I've owned this guitar for almost a year now, and it has to be hands down the best guitar I've ever played. The neck is super fast, and the pickups don't even need to be replaced. If you get the chance, buy the guitar.

Great All-Around Guitar

By Jay

from MS

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

What you want to know- It sounds fantastic. Great clean sound and disgustingly awesome distortion. I can't get over how great this thing can sound. (I use a Peavey Vypyr.) Neck is nice and thin and this thing is EASY to play- just very smooth, weight is perfect, looks are killer. My only two complaints- sustain is short-lived-it goes for a few then just dies, tapping is not so hot-with both pick-ups on it's somewhat better, but forget it with one. Overall, worth every cent and then some. Great all around sound. If you are considering it, STOP now and BUY it. What you might not care to know- First, I'm a research fanatic. I spent months trying to decide what kind of guitar I wanted. Second, I'm 37 and a second time beginner who used to play around on the guitar in high school. I like a broad range- Hendrix, Zeppelin, Cream, Boston, Kansas, Ratt, Poison, Skid Row, Metallica, Alice in Chains, STP, Godsmack, etc etc etc. I've played quite a bit on a late 70s Les Paul and was 90% decided on an Epiphone Les Paul after lots of reading and one Guitar Center visit. On my second trip, I decided to play everything I was remotely interested in- 3 Les Pauls, 3 Ibanezes, a couple of BC Riches, some other stuff and then I saw the F-50 and remembered it got good reviews. I was impressed and started taking turns with this and the Les Pauls. Les Paul wins on richness and sustain, especially when played cleanly, but the F-50 wins 10 times over with crunch and distortion and the clean is very acceptable. After playing all night when I got it home, I know I made the right choice.

Great Guitar!

By Nino

from Bronx, New York

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar on Xmas 2009. I played shows at the Ace of Clubs and The Studio at Webster Hall in New york. It never goes out of tune and sounds really chunky. I put in Dimarzio Tone Zone pick up and its super hot! The stock pick ups were ok but I chose to change them. Great rhythm guitar and ok for lead. Body shape is unique.

Great Guitar!

By Nick Eldridge

from Rowley, MA

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

When I saw this guitar at GC, I was skeptical because of the bolt on neck. However, when I played it, I was really surprised at how well it played and how great it sounded. It was on sale (like $100 off) so I bought it. I have it C right now and it really sounds great. Amazing guitar for the money.

Simply amazing

By Panda

from Miami, Florida

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for about three months now, and I have to say, it's amazing. The sound is superior to any of the other guitars I've played. The guitar, once nice and polished, is beautiful. I definitely recommend this guitar to anyone, novice or expert.

one of the best guitars in the line

By Nick Miller

from Leicester, Massachusetts

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

I am 13 years old with five gutiars, including this one, and so far this is the best guitar with the best features out of all of them. The thin neck contour is the perfect neck for me. I really like the pickups are incredibly hot and sound incredible. And the tuners keep it in tune for days at a time. Also, the bridge help decrease the fret buzz and increase the sustain. I think it is safe for me to reccomend this guitar for anyone from beginners the professional player, along with every other guitar in the esp line. ESP for the WIN.

Nice, but one problem

By Samuel Tosto

from Madison North Carolina

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

This is a really nice RHYTHM guitar. Note I said rhythm. It's nice for some soloing stuff but really the only problem that I have with it is that it doesn't respond very well to tapping. Besides from that, it's a great chunky sounding guitar.

One of the best basic guitars out there

By Nicholas M.

from Queens, NY

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

Its been 1 year since I've bought the guitar and without any modification it sounds tough and the distortion produced through any amp is the best for the price. I wanted a B.C. Rich but I am so glad that I got this ESP, I love the guitar. Not only that but I thank the Guitar center staff for helping me with my pick, the people at the GC in Long Island City were the best I've ever met and I'm so glad they sold me this guitar.

Cool guitar

By flagrant99

from danbury, ct

Comments about ESP F-50 Electric Guitar:

The shape is awesome. Love it. I got it in black. I don't have a lot of experience with other guitars, but it sounds good to me. I like that it has two sets of pickups for different sounds. Becuase output is on side get an angled connector cable. Very pleased with purchase. Totally worth it.
