Done deal!

By Tyson

Comments about ESP LTD EC-401 Electric Guitar:

I purchased this six and a half months ago and I am still in love with this thing. The guitar itself is absolutely fantastic, the intonation is swell, and it stays in tune after hours of playing. My friends think it's quite pretty as well. I'm not always fond of how the pickups sound sometimes, though. I might switch them out later. But for now, they sound decent through my Blackstar Ht-40.

Beware, They are made in Indonesia, & Korea,( NOT CHINA)

By Cliff

from Miami Florida

Comments about ESP LTD EC-401 Electric Guitar:

To ME,,, IT IS A GREAT GUITAR, I OWNED an ESP EC 500, Made in Korea and I Returned it because I seen on line at Guitar center an ESP EC-401 with case fore $100 more. So, as a greedy fish I was hooked! ( Te ESP LTD 500 is the same as the 401, but not knowing it was a collectors item I took it back. Know at Hallandale they use to sell ESP EC 401, but being cheep I did not want to buy the case. Stupid me having the ESP EC-500 White and and silver hardware took it back. Next day I thought what a mistake I made after researching internet, I went back and it was sold almost as I brought it back. I bought the EC- 401 with case I bought and I had to first set the neck, the knobs, were screwed on wrong, and it was made in (China) I sent it back and lost my insurance money because I was working and did not return it in a month. So if you get 1 that says," made in China" remember they are made in Indonesia or Korea Korea are best.

Just Amazing!!!

By Jason Smoke

from Huron, SD

Comments about ESP LTD EC-401 Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar in the see-thru black finish. Cosmetically this guitar is absolutely gorgeous! It is thin and extremely light weight yet still as a very thick sound. The EMG pickups are amazing! The only problem, and I mean ONLY problem, is that it came with very cheap and light guage strings. I play in drop c so I get a bit of string flop and buzz because of the light guage strings. Other than that it is one of the best guitars I have ever owned and would definitely recommend this guitar!

Good if you like 6 strings and pure crunch

By Inbiana Bones

from Orlando FL

Comments about ESP LTD EC-401 Electric Guitar:

I got the EC-400 about 6 or 7 years ago. For the price it is a pretty decent guitar. I was a huge fan of the single cutaway at the time but I prefer double cut, and 7 strings now. I still enjoy playing this guitar though. The set neck feels great and the EMGs are nice and crunchy. I have my tuned to AGCFAD and it holds the tune great.

By Bradley

Comments about ESP LTD EC-401 Electric Guitar:

this is a nice guitar what makes it all the better is the EMG pickups they put on that body it makes the guitar hit those really high notes my friend was jamming solos like no tommorow and it made it sound t he more better but one flaw is the rosewood fingerboard it makes the playing slower but all in all a great guuitar
