First off, this is a beautiful guitar. Aesthetics are amazing, and the quality is even better. Fast, smooth neck (I usually take sandpaper to my necks for faster movement but didnt with this one!), great tones, very little to no buzz, and extremely versatile. It is technically a metal/djent/metalcore guitar, but it gives some beautiful clean tones as well. The neck is extremely big so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with smaller hands, but me being a 6' bassist and pianist, I dont really mind. Over all, great guitar and I have no complaints.
I bought this as my first 7 string guitar, and for the price, it was the best decision I've ever made for buying a guitar. The construction is solid so far, not problems with intonation at all and it stays in tune incredibly well. It's a great guitar for the average metal player. The lower end is very solid, but the high end lacks when you play on a higher gain setting but that is easily fixable by changing your EQ. I would recommend this guitar to any metal-head on a budget
It's incredible the sound that you can get for $199, the guitar is made out of basswood with a maple neck and rosewood finger board, the pickups are lh 107 that sound just like the lh50 that comes on the LTD's 10 series to 100 series, I own a LTD V 50 for $250 and I got impressed to find out that the m17 sounds all the way exactly as the v50 which I was looking for cuz I had my v50 tuned on B2 which is the 7 string tuning so I got really happy whit it, There's just some things you need to know... First: every LTD guitar from the series 10 to 100 ($149-$299) come somehow pre adjusted but not perfectly, so they'll require to adjust a little the action, the bridge depending on your type of playing, shortening or making longer the strings in order to get the accurate note on every fret, once adjusted properly the guitar sounds amazing, better than the sound you get for $199, and second: from the series 300 above like 1000's ($349-$899+) the guitars are gona be adjusted unless that the weather ruins the adjustment (way to hot or cold while shipping). I play progressive metal and I own an ion guitar, behringer guitar, an Ibanez rx40, ltd v50 and m17, I require 5 different guitars cuz I play songs on 5 different tunes, E,D, drop D, etc... And to be honest no guitar matches my style but ESP, my team it's gonna be: m17, v50, ex50, mh100qm stb, ec1000vb (for the beginning) and then improved onto ec1000,mh447, v401, ex401, m1000, hope this helps you with this buy and future ones
just OK for the cheap price to learn 7 string and reverse headstock. Seems to play louder then my Fenders and strings vibrate more especially 6 and 7.
I love this guitar thus far. I play a lot of Metal and I really liked the idea of having an extended range to play around with, so I decided to buy an inexpensive 7-string, as I have a rather small budget. This guitar has been excellent. The sound is great, but the pickups could use an upgrade. I find the tuning pegs a little hard to adjust, but it's a small price to pay. I recommend this guitar.
birthday present. Looks flawless.
This guitar is so cool it's crazy, the sound, clean or distorted, It'll sound amazing. It's very comfortable sitting or standing and the neck grips to your standards I've had it for one month so far, plus non stop shredding... and it has yet to disappoint.
I used to play in a touring/recording band back in the 80's...your hair metal fluff. I gave all my guitars and equipment to my nephew who has used them for good use.... anyways I had not touched a guitar in 20 years and got the itch, never had a seven string and bought this through the internet sight unseen. I am amazed at the quality for an entry level guitar and it's playability. I have been able to regain my previous skills within a few days. I cannot complain about anything other than the bolt through neck that the scallop could accommodate a little easier. I am amazed by the setup fresh out of the box....other than having to stretch the factory strings this thing has sounded great. After two weeks of determining I want to play again seriously, I have been pricing the much higher end ESPs.
Out of 30 guitars this will be my new main. Unreal growl and response. Mine only came with a 3 way switch. Lost the in and out of phase, coil tap, but I never had it. LTD_ESP certainly has the neck making down. This beast feels like its molded to your hand.
