I ended up ordering both the "black"and "snow white". I am in shock on how amazing the craftsmanship and sound quality is on these guitars. I would recommend these guitars because they look, feel, and sound great for the money. Good investment Player of over fifteen years and own several actual ESP's.
I wanted a cheap guitar for home practise. One that I won't worry about if it got knocked off the stand. Since my main guitar is an ESP, I decided on the M-15 as the neck radius and nut width are the same as on my other,(minus 2 frets on the M-15). First off, the white looks really cool. The workmanship is, well...you get what you pay for. Pots are cheap. Pickups are actually pretty decent. The guitar has an amazing amount of sustain. The neck pickup, I thought was a single coil, from the picture. However it is a humbucker. The tone is really unique. I like it for 'blues' and 'fat' solos. The bridge pup,I swapped out for a DiMarzio 'Breed' I had lying around. Now the sustain seems infinite and pinch harmonics are effortless. Here is where the disappointment began. Head stock was damaged. Where it comes to a point, looked like it banged into something and was this weird square looking shape atop the point. Also, from the 12th fret up, there were high and low frets. Buzzing and strange sounding notes. Solution...I had to do a fret dress and sand the head stock. I am pleased now. However it is not worth the time and effort. Better to buy something a little more expensive and save yourself the stress.
I bought this as my first guitar. As soon as I got it home and started playing I was hooked. The sounds come out good as far as I can tell. I did have an issue with the fret bars hanging over the side and had to pay an extra 25 dollars to have them sanded down so they were not cutting my fingers. Since then I dont have to put the guitar down due to my finger getting cut up. And of course I have a very hard time putting it back down now that I dont have to. Once I am feeling really good about how I am playing I will upgrade to a better guitar but I am very satisfied with this one as a learner.
I got one of these just today, in the Black finish at the North Attleboro, Mass. store. Originally I had wanted one in White, but all the ones that they had in stock, had fret edges sticking out along the neck, so after looking at a couple of the Black ones that were in stock, I finally found one where the neck did not have any of these defects. I guess with these, it's either hit or miss IMO. Mine had really high action and was in need of a setup, which I proceeded to do once I got home. I read reviews where people complain that lower priced guitars aren't good, well let me stress something right now. 90% of the time, it's not the guitar but the player! The reason I say that, is because the majority of today's young players don't know how to do a setup and would IMO, benefit from learning how to do one. A proper setup will make a lower priced guitar not only sound great, but will also make it last a lifetime. Anyway, once I did a full setup on this guitar, the final results were worth it. The stock ESP pickups have some great sustain and are IMO, very LOUD!!! With the 3 way switch, I can get some great tones ranging from Metal to Blues, and using my Zoom G1N processor, it sounds even that much better. The stock tuners maintain tuning stability with no problems at all and the weight of this guitar is perfect for a 51 year old rocker. I plan on using this with my new band and in the future, look foward to adding another ESP LTD series to my collection. For the price, this is not a bad guitar at all, just make sure you find one that doesn't have fret edges sticking out and make sure you do a setup on it! trust me, you won't regret it!
LTD/ESP has been upping the anti for affordable guitars. I have bought two of them now. I got the black M-15 new and in the box at the Dallas LBJ location. The did a setup for me as part of the sale. The dual rail single coil is fantastic, don't touch it. The humbucker is okay and gets good tone. I upgraded mine to a DiMarzio Evolution 159 and that was an amazing upgrade. Depending on your style and liking, check into replacing the bucker and this guitar will not let you down. I love it and I am sure you will too.
ok, i admit this guitar may not sound so great, but my schecter is barely better and cost 5 times as much! if you just want a guitar to mod or something to practice or throw around, this is it! i thought i would buy it that day and expected it to be atleast $350! i ended up saving for a new amp head but if i get a chance, this is my next buy
