This is my fifth guitar, and this thing is crazy!!! It does everything! I mainly play metallica type stuff, but this guitar can do it all! The finish on this guitar is durable and beautiful! (I own the See-Thru Black Cherry) the neck feels so nice, it is very thin and is soooo friggin fast! this guitar practically makes you shred whether you want to or not! the neck is also controlled. The XJ frets are great, it makes hitting notes alot easier and faster. the guitar has a nice weight to it too, not too heavy, but not light enough that you feel like its a piece of junk. the floyd is great (this is my first Floyd Rose guitar) it took a while to set up, but after that, it was the best! I dive bomb the hell out of this guitar and this thing has stayed in tune for four weeks at least (I have coated ernie balls on it) the tone is beyond explanation! the EMGs give it that great metallica/zack wylde tone that we all know and love, the bridge pickup is great for heavy rhythm tones and a great, sharp, responsive lead, the neck pickup is good for cleans and soft leads. pinch harmonics are so easy to hit on this guitar its not even funny! both pickups have alot of presence too. over all this is a friggin awesome guitar, i play this guitar WAY more than my Gibson Les Paul, if you want a fast guitar, that stays in tune FOREVER, and that has great tone and sustain, just buy the friggin guitar!!!! dont even hesitate! trust me, you wont regret it!

This guitar isnt bad, plays nice, sounds decent, but feels like a toy. ESP began making their sub-1000 series guitars in china, which is probably why these guitars aren't what they used to be. Ive played about 10 of these, every single one had awful fretwork, either some frets were higher than the others or they jut off the fretboard. Definitely spend the extra $200 for a 1000 series guitar, i walked out with a silverburst ec-1000 and couldnt be happier. At least the 1000s are made in korea.

great guitar

By tyler guajardo

Comments about ESP LTD M-300FM Electric Guitar:

this is an amazing guitar however im not to fond of the floyd rose (special) tremolo the emg 81 combo pickups are a very nice touch they play great and are very versitile meaning they are good for playing all round differnt types of music. recently i have installed emg 85 combo both in the neck and bridge position. this guitar shreds more than any guitar i own. if i were to do anything else to this guitar i would install a better tremolo. i would recommend the floyd rose original or the 1000. i really have no complaints about this guitar besides the tunibility. but recently i have discoverd by adding an extra spring in the back in the low e,a,d and high e it stays in tune much longer. my guitars been in tune for about 4 weeks now. the guitar in my opinion looks better in person then online also i think this guitar is better for metal and riffing other than soloing i would deffinalty buy this guitar its the best deal for your money the quality is there the feel of the guitar is spectacular and pretty close to the neck not quite like the ibanez this guitar feels like a floyd rose ive owned this guitar for about two years now and it is by far the best guitar ive picked up

    Comments about ESP LTD M-300FM Electric Guitar:

    I am in love with this metal monster of a guitar. The pick ups sound so amazing. This guitar feels perfect. The neck isn't too thick, which is something I am very picky about. The floyd works great, but I ended up hard tailing mine because I don't really use it much. I would buy this guitar again.

      This guitar is freaking awesome. I bought it used recently, and I do not regret it. The only problem I've had with this guitar is with the floyd rose and string slippage, but I just adjusted it and problem solved. This guitar screams, and it looks and feels nearly perfect, especially for this price range. I would highly recommend this guitar to any of my friends that want to play metal.

      Phenomenal

      By Eric Furman

      from Pittsburgh PA

      Comments about ESP LTD M-300FM Electric Guitar:

      NOTE: I picked up this guitar USED! it's in amazing condition and its relatively new. Well, i actually went to a Guitar Center branch and found this guitar(before i had an account on here) and i really liked it. I picked it up, it felt awesome, it played awesome, and it sounded awesome. This is my first guitar (hell of a good first guitar id say!) and i'm deeply impressed with it. I've played Gibson's, Ibanez, B.C Rich... But this is probably the most comfortable of them all in my opinion. When i picked it up the action needed to be adjusted, as did the bridge and a slight neck adjustment. But nothing major. With the EMG's on it, this guitar gives out an amazing sound. Set properly, you can have a very close resemblance to A LOT of Metallica's sound. In my opinion, this guitar is well worth what they are selling it for... And i recommend it to everyone!

      Great guitar

      By robert larocca

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ESP LTD M-300FM Electric Guitar:

      I think the trem should work perfectly without fussing with it. Otherwise it's great. An excellent metal guitar for the price. I would recommend it. Just remember to bend those strings at the ends.
      I ended up getting this guitar, because it's mahogany w/the maple veneer, emg's and the floyd. I find the pickups and wood to be great. The floyd, as mentioned, can be a problem. I started troubleshooting and realized that the string windings were being pulled on the wound strings. Maybe something about the design. I don't know, but I solved it by bending the string at the end so it was twice as wide. Works great now!
      Same as the features basically, but I would like to add that the finish is really great. I've only owned it about a little over a year. Seems to be holding up OK. And I scalloped the neck, so it must be pretty solid.
      Great value. You couldn't ask for more. That's China manufacturing thing. What do they do, somehow value their currency against a percentage of our dollar or something? Anyway, it's a great value.

      Flat out amazing

      Comments about ESP LTD M-300FM Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar several months ago and it felt great. In the store I felt it and the neck was nice and easy to slide on which is perfect for faster playing. I couldn't ask for a better weight either. The EMG's in this really make it great for lead and all of the frets are easy to reach with the shape of the horns. Incredible, no downsides so far.
