    Comments about ESP LTD EC-401QM Electric Guitar:

    Esp ltd....Feels like a total quality instrument. Great sustain,solid grover tuners. The see thru black is unique, the picture absolutely doesnt do it justice. The neck on this guitar is probably the most comfortable ive ever played, although to each is own on that thought. ESP for life after this purchase. I practice on a fender mustang,and with those emgs on the modern metal 2000 setting, its really an amazing sound. Very high output pickups,I can over power a drummer that uses tree trunks for sticks.Extremely satisfied with this purchase.Guitar is heavy,but not uncomfortable, it just feels quality . Looking forward to my next ESP!!!

      Comments about ESP LTD EC-401QM Electric Guitar:

      I'm more than glad I blew all my Christmas money on this thing. Sounds amazing, feels amazing, and it looks amazing as well. The only negative thing I could possibly say about this guitar would be the finish on the neck. If your hand is sweaty, it feels a little slow but other than that, 10/10 would definitely buy again.

        Comments about ESP LTD EC-401QM Electric Guitar:

        I really like this guitar, it sounds great, is easy to play and looks awesome. Probably one of my favorite $500 range guitars out there. The only small complaint I have is (like the guy in the review before me) the neck finish. If your hand is sweaty or sticky it feels a little slow to play. (Not super slow just a very little bit) In the end, I would totally recommend this guitar.

        It's a nice guitar with active emg pickups for the money. It appears to stay in tune pretty good and it sounds great through my Marshall dsl5.

        I spent weeks looking at guitars, looking at review after review and this one caught my eye. Not one bad review. I'm not one to get an instrument that I have not played first but I took a chance with this one and it did not disappoint! When I got this it was immaculate! Absolutely no complaints. I'd recommend this to everyone!

        Great guitar and value. Great sustain and tone. Fun to play, it just feels good. I would buy it again. Be careful not to scratch it, not a guitar to leave laying around near kids or pets.
