I played this axe in the GC at Sunset, and the moment I started chugging my riffs, this thing blew me away. How much more metal can there be in this guitar?! (I plugged this in a Line 6 Spider valve 112) There are people out there who just hate on this guitar because it has an ESP pup and a Lic. FR. Those are all bad reviews because trust me, if this guitar is set up correctly, it doesn't even matter whether it's Lic. or Org. FR. Pros: - Decent price - Good feel - Great sound Cons: - The ESP pup is somewhat limited. An upgrade to a Duncan Blackout is a good investment. - Some people dislike Lic. FR. - No locking tuners.

I purchased this guitar about three years ago when I was big into my C.O.B. and V-guitar phase. For the time it was nice. It sounded way better than my guitar from my Behringer starter pack.But after playing higher end guitars over the last couple years (ESP MH1000 Deluxe and Schecter C-1 Hellraiser FR), I don't really understand why this thing is priced at $500.I'll start with the pros about it.PROS: Regardless of what anyone says, the Floyd Rose Licensed trem DOES stay in tune suprisingly well. After playing OFR's over the past couple of years, I can tell the difference, but I still have no problem with the Licensed Floyd. Plus, if it gets out of tune, all you to is twist the fine tuners and you're good to go.The neck is probably my favourite neck I've ever played (other than my ESP MH1000 Deluxe). I really like it because it's flat and fast. The 24th fret can be hard to hit at times, but that's what tapping is for yo!The jack for the cable is in a really good location as well. I think they put it there so you can solo with it on your knee just like Alexi does!One other thing about it that is really nice is how small and light it is. When I used to use this at local gigs I would swing this thing around with ease. It's so light and small and just fun to get heavy with live! But the small body and lightweight is also a con...Now to the bad stuff.CONS: Because it's so small and lightweight, the wood in the guitar aids to absolutely zero tone. You cannot get a warm tone out of this thing stock to save your life. I play a little jazz and this thing is terrible for it because it's got no warm tones at all.The ESP-EMG humbucker blows. Bottom line. Replace it and maybe this guitar will blow your socks off. I'd put an EMG 81 and an 85 in there if I had the money, but that would also require cutting holes out for a neck pickup. I wish I knew more about guitars before buying this one. At the time I didn't even know what the pickup selector switch was for!BOTTOM LINE: You deserve a better guitar. Don't buy this one because of the reasons I did. If you plan to switch out the humbuckers it, I imagine it will sound way better, but until then get earplugs because the stock ones are terrible.Look into Schecter or higher end ESP models. Sure, it's more cash you're out, but it's years of a great guitar you'll enjoy!Hope this helped.

    Comments about ESP LTD Alexi-200 Alexi Laiho Signature Series Electric Guitar:

    So is funny how i got this guitar. Long story short I bought it in a leap of faith for 200 dllrs with a case. Anyways, I was going to sell it has I have a hellraiser with emgs 81-85 but man the tone on this thing through my not so great amp makes it sound so crunchy and agressive, as well as clean. I have a vypyr (which is not the best thing I know) but for metal this guitar and that amp make a better combo than my schecter with emgs 81-85. It is personal opinion i guess. But I also have a mexican strat and a ibanez rg350 and this guitar is pretty nice and super light too which I like.

      Comments about ESP LTD Alexi-200 Alexi Laiho Signature Series Electric Guitar:

      I've been playing guitar and other stringed instruments for around 45 years. I found the ESP LTD Alexi-200 in a local warehouse buyout store where this guitar, along with a bunch of other musical equipment purchased from some liquidated store, sat forlorn with a broken string and horribly out of tune. So I picked up this guitar and several other real steals for less than 1/2 retail price, and went to work to restore all to former glory. First of all, I hadn't owned a guitar with a Floyd Rose tremolo bridge and locking nut since the '80s, so it took some downloading of instructions to get it all properly set up with new strings, adjust the action, and set up the bar/bridge motion just right. But then... WOW! I set up an '80s-style rack with several vintage, NOS guitar processors (also purchased from said warehouse) and put the signal to a Marshall mini-stack. Talk about bringing out your inner shredder!! This guitar, along with the appropriate amount of signal processing, just forces one to play loud, proud, and fast! Sure, as other reviewers point out, it ain't for jazz or chord-comping rhythm or C&W twanging, but then that's not what this guitar was intended for; it's intended to SHRED!!! I haven't had so much outright FUN with a guitar since... well, since I was in my twenties!!! Get one, and bring out your own inner shredmeister!

      What a Deal!

      By Kelly Condon

      from Danville, California

      Comments about ESP LTD Alexi-200 Alexi Laiho Signature Series Electric Guitar:

      I was able to get this bad boy used for half the price. This thing lives, breathes, and speaks metal all over the place. The stock pickup is pretty powerful on its own, but I recommend and upgrade to Seymour Duncan or EMG. The neck is super fast, my fingers almost flew off. The floyd rose could use and adjustment, but it won't get in the way of your playing. Fabulous metal guitar. It's aggressiveness will never cease to surprise you.

        I think it is awesome for sitting. plus the jumbo frets make it amazing for shredding. I wouldn't recommend it for rhythm, but that's why it's a lead guitar. Get it

        Comments about ESP LTD Alexi-200 Alexi Laiho Signature Series Electric Guitar:

        I've been playing for over 25 years and got this guitar in a trade. I'm an avid Ibanez junkie so this was a stretch for me. It came with the EMG Alexi pickup which sounded super bright live, but when I recorded it through my eleven rack it actually sounded quite amazing. But then again you can put an EMG on a tennis racket and still sound like an EMg. As with all V's, be prepared for chips on the wings, they tend to bump into everything.
        Don't bother playing sitting down, it's uncomfortable as you can imagine.
        Neck is decent, Floyd is ok, stays in tune and you get great reach on the higher frets.
        I wouldn't pay retail for this guitar though, 300 is tops. I would say this guitar is strictly for metal, specially with only one pickup.

        Comments about ESP LTD Alexi-200 Alexi Laiho Signature Series Electric Guitar:

        It is amazing the only thing I recmmend you do is swap the pickup for something else
        I liked everything about this guitar exept the pickup so i swapped it for a dimarzio super distortion and now this thing screams.
        It is made very solid and is light as a feather.
        You get a great guitar for the money.

        One of the Best Metal Guitars out there!

        By Jacob Huggins

        from New Hampshire

        Comments about ESP LTD Alexi-200 Alexi Laiho Signature Series Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is absolutely amazing. The neck is crazy fast, and the pickup is astonishing for a stock pickup. The Floyd stays in tune pretty well and the body is very comfortable. I've tried all other types of metal guitars: Jackson, Ibanez, and Dean, but the ESP guitars are the undisputed champs. Although it has 1 pickup, it can handle the rhythm, lead, and solos all very well. No down side to buying this guitar, I mean it. The thing that really makes the ESP guitars stand out is the coat of wax they put on it. I have a Dean and the coat of wax lasted about 2 years of heavily playing it. The ESP I've been playing for 3 years and you can still feel the coat. Don't waste your time buying other metal guitar brands, or before you do just have a play on this one,and I guarantee you'll want it more. So go out and get one! ESP's are and will always be the best.

        To start off great design...light weight, perfect weight distribiution...allthough it is just a floyd rose special...it keeps the guitar in tune extremely well while u do ur alexi style squeels ,dive bombs etc in low tuning like drop C, D. the neck is amazing better than any other guitar in this price range and even other higher price ranges like many of diamond series from shecter of bc rich etc. The pickup wasnt the best...I changed it for a EMG 81 and tottally rewired it and also instaled a tone nob with this its just tottally heavy and amazin ...I would sayt overall u could not get a better guitar for this much money it is just a overall amazing guitar specially if u wanna play COBHC .
