This guitar is just so sweet, might I just say first that I would recommend getting the D-tuna for it though- if you like playing in dropped tuning that is. This guitar gets some reviews on other sites stating that the pick ups don't give enough - Big lie- My dad has a american made telecaster with loaded emg's 81 and 60 . This in my opinion sound way heavier and brighter toned then my dad's. and my dad likes it too. I would recommend this for those who like to play stuff from glam metal to Metalcore. It covers almost any playing style. One thing I did notice with the locking nut is that if you have the nut lug turned wrong- then it won't lock right. What i mean is that if you look at the studs on the bottom(where the strings get pinched down) Have some room light to see it- but you should see A groove cut in the center, make sure you have it where both sides look like they have a bar on each side- if you look closely enough then you will see it. I found out because my guitar kept going flat and sharp. When on closer inspection I was able to find this out. Floyd works fantastic, I took the middle spring out to make the whammy to dive easier. Buy this and you won't be dissapointed. Contact me if you have any questions about it.

Good Budget Mid Range Guitar

Features: For the price you get a solid guitar with the lower end branded floyd rose, aka the special. The pick ups are stock ltd's and they have really good sustain and sound for passives. Quality & Reliability: I owned this guitar for about 2 weeks before returning it. It was a quality guitar but you get what you pay for in a sense. The amount is a good price to pay for a mid range guitar but I was seeking something a bit more high end. After having it professionally set up and the bridge lined up with the body the floyd provided amazing dives and harmonic sounds. The neck is bolted on which isn't the greatest feel but its what you expect from a guitar under 600. Look & Feel: a very light guitar, easy to handle when standing, no shoulder strain at all. as for the paint, if you get the black like i did, the "see thru" isn't like the picture at all, its much darker and hard to tell its even see thru. Overall: If you have a low budget and want a guitar with a floyd and really heavy "metal" sounding pick ups then this is a great guitar, i suggest checking it out in person before buying it as with any guitar. (mostly because of the paint). I ended up spending a couple hundred more and getting the 300m with the emgs.

Great, but one problem.

By Benjamin Johnston

from Aurora, CO

I bought the M-100FM and then picked up an MH-103QM a few days later to replace the guitar I originally started learning on. I use both and both guitars have the same issue with the trem arm: it will quickly come lose during use and wobbles quite a bit. Aggressively tightening the back-nut for the arm receptacle on the 100 and swapping out a different arm and it now stays in as long as it's tight. If you let the arm swing lose, it will continue to loosen and get more and more wobbly. The 103 will stay tight for about one song. All in all, this is still a great guitar: it's comfortable, sounds great, looks great, and stays in tune. As a beginner, the trem arm issue isn't really huge. I'm having fun with it.

You Wont Regret Buying It!

By Omar Rogers

from Louisville, KY

This guitar suits my needs perfectly. Right out of the box, there were no flaws. This guitar sports a extra thin, flat U neck. This makes soloing a breeze. The Floyd Rose tremolo works great. I play a lot of Metallica and if you know Kirk Hammett, you know he loves his whammy bar. The guitar rarely needs fine tuning. You will need to tune it when you first play it out of the box, but that's almost any guitar coming from the factory. The pickups are nice and provide me with a nice thick tone when I am using the neck pickup and a really nice tone with the bridge pickup. I have had this guitar for about 10 months. It has been very reliable. The quality of this guitar is just great; For this price, especially. Not too heavy or too light and the finish is still as good as new. I strongly encourage you to invest in this product. ESP never lets me down and they are the brand I plan on staying loyal to.

Amazing Guitar!

By Norman Burt

from Washington, DC

Like every other reviewer has said, this guitar is far better than its price tag reflects. The stock pickups sound decent and definitely do the job well, though this is probably one of the first things you'll replace somewhere down the road. This guitar is better isolated than some of my other guitars that I paid over twice this much for... it's amazing how quiet it is! The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because when it came one of the lock screws on the nut was stripped out. I replaced it with a new one in about 5 min and have never had another issue with it since. I would 100% recommend this guitar without hesitation.

Awesome!

By Leonardo Inclan

from Silver spring, Maryland.

It's so much better than what you would expect from the price... The FR can be a little hard to set up if it's your first time, but if you know what you're doing, it's not so terrible. Great tone, very comfortable to play. Love it.

AWESOME CRISP TONE

By Tyler Bargas

from Chicago

ive had this guitar for about 4 months now and cant believe how it plays ! let alone i bought mine used i can only imagine what its like out of the box. the ESP150 pickups have nasty lows and crisp highs. The double locking floyd rose tremelo system has been perfect since i adjusted it. i added one extra spring on the back because mine was used and i changed string gauge. I got this guitar because my buddy has a KM1000 thinking i could get that tone. he has EMG81 and i still sound in unison with him. (turned up volume a little lol) and the slim design neck is more comfortable than i ever imagined. this guitar is about three years old now who knows how many owners its had but im not givin this one up.... its a keeper! I 100% recommend this to you, you will not be disappointed

Either save your money for an original Floyd rose or spend it on a non Floyd rose guitar

By Dominick

from Buena park ca

I had two big problems with this guitar. 1) the Floyd rose on this guitar is trash, it easily gets out of tune when I use the whammy. I've tried adjusting it and stretching out the strings and nada its cheap quality metal. 2) the action on this guitar is bad, the low e string buzzes and palm muting sounds like a fart. Also the pickups aren't so good. For those who think the pickups are good you haven't obviously played on a guitar with good pickups. The only positive comments I have on this guitar is it's neck comfort ability and it's contour on the back and it's looks but everything else about this guitar is really cheap quality which explains the price of this guitar. If you want a guitar with a reliable Floyd rose save your money and wait till you can afford it.

Watch out.

By Jay

from pittsburgh p.a

i had this guitar for a few months and it played great but a problem came about with the neck. there is a joint up by the headstock where the two pieces and on mine that piece on the headstock backbowed and two different guitars. so watch out for that.

best guitar i ever have

By `PIP

from texas

At the first moment when I look this guitar I fall in love. have the black cherry color an i love it. the floyd rose stays in tune very well and the neck it's pretty fast, the stock pick ups are very well from metal to blues, with a crunchi sound with distortion and very crispy on clean sound. for the price I can't find nothing better

Great for the price

By Cody Carpenter

from Pueblo, CO

I've had this guitar for around 4 or 5 years and it has played great, the action was always better than my dad's 1500$ Rickenbocker. The frets did wear down and start to buzz but this was after four years of intense playing, after filing they played like new. I replaced the pickups with EMGs but that's just my personal preferance. If you want a cheap guitar that won't play like a cheap guitar I recomend this.
