Continuing ESP's goal of providing excellent guitars for everyone, LTD has also introduced more 200-Series models that are affordable for any musician on a budget. George Lynch, who's been playing ESPs longer than 99% of people ever heard of ESP, has a new Signature Series model, the LTD GL-200K (with a graphic finish based on his well known ESP Kamikaze model).
The GL-200MK neck was spec'd by Lynch himself and is instantly comfortable. A Floyd Rose Special bridge and locking nut keep notes in tune when dive bombing or shredding.
A screaming ESP LH-150 humbucking pickup produces high-output tone and, along with a versatile LS-120 neck pickups, is all this guitar needs to get the job done.

I?ve loved George Lynch?s sound since Breaking The Chains (1981) and so found that there was an ESP within my price range: The LTD GL200K. Lucky for me, I needed a new guitar. (For internet orders, please order from a store to save some potential confusion.) After I got it home and out of the box, I set up the action, stretched the strings and the tuning (E flat). Do not forget this step! (Double-locking Floyd Rose tremolo?s require this.) Plugged it in and right away I loved the width of the neck, the lowness of the action and the feel of the guitar. (Crate 15W reverb amplifier) The pickups run the amount of harmonics and low end that I prefer. The push/pull pickup volume knob takes getting used to but you know what you are reaching for after a while. Blues sounds equally sweet through this guitar. Bending the strings felt effortless-and it stayed in tune <3 I will probably replace the neck pickup with a Seymour Dunkan ?Lil Screaming Demon, and maybe a JB in the bridge pickup too, but I like a higher output from the neck coil. Overall: it?s a pretty solid guitar without the high price of the ESP Kamikaze. Keep on rocking!! Lexikat
The difference between the ESP Kamikaze and the LTD is a couple of thousand dollars for the most part. This makes some of George Lynch's preferences for sound within reasonable costs. I just got mine in and she will need some break-in time. What I do like is the tone of the pick-ups for my style of playing. Great harmonics! The Floyd Rose double-locking trem is a bit stiff but HEY its new still. And has that "New Guitar" smell to it. For my hands the neck isn't built like a log and I can access all 22 frets with ease. I'm not sure I'm liking the laminated neck vs. unfinished neck but we shall see in time. One interesting piece of work is the recessed straight audio jack on the bottom edge. You won't need a 90-degree jack for this one. All in all, I like it. I've had white guitars because they go with "anything" (lol), but the color scheme of this ax is as F-I-E-R-C-E as is namesake and inspiration! Ciao for now! Lexikat
