Nice guitar

By phillip green

Comments about ESP LTD MH-103 Quilted Maple Electric Guitar:

Site said the store had one in stock, they did not. Ordered from the store un played shipped to my house got there 2 or 3 days earlier than expected that was nice. I got this to replace an Ibanez gx270. Beautiful guitar, the neck is a little wider than I expected and takes some getting used to. It had an electrical short somewhere close to the volume pot,(no sound) took the back off and pushed the wires around and it started working again so far. The tremolo took a bit of tinkering especially taking the back cover off and tightening the arm assembly. If I had it to do again I would have shipped it to the store and check everything out first, probably. Over all the guitar sounds great to me with the active pickup and the neck, though wide is nice and slippery. I am very happy with it.

    Comments about ESP LTD MH-103 Quilted Maple Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar and it did what i wanted it to do and more, it feels great plays well and I'm playing off a Fender rumble 40 an MXR prime distortion a Crybaby and an MXR analog Chorus pedal. this guitar helped me play better and got me to REALLY love ESP. the only time i had something fault would be the tremolo when a string broke or new strings after using the tremolo and it became unbalanced. The other fault would be the locking nuts which got stripped. but other than that its a great guitar

      Comments about ESP LTD MH-103 Quilted Maple Electric Guitar:

      this guitar is not for people who are buying their first guitar and i think it is a solid guitar for what it is. i know its esp and people are expecting more but what i got (which was store worn) it has been a very solid guitar and when i bought they just told me that you can buy it online and it comes with the tremolo but i just bought a replacement tremolo that i thought looked nicer and the clerk gave it to me for free. the guitar looks feels and plays well but it having a floyd rose tuning is more difficult than on a hard tail guitar and you will need Alan wrench to tune it and change strings but i needed a guitar to play a lot of metal and bluesy rock and it not only gave that but delivered. tone sounds that i didn't like i thought were the guitar but i now realizes thats because of my amp setting and and instead of being treble heavy its now got treble with more bass and sounds better than ever. The guitar is also easier to play but it also has lower string gauges because i never bothered to adjust the tremolo from 9's to 10's but i don't car i think its a great instrument and i can't stress the enough

      Comments about LTD MH-103 Quilted Maple Electric Guitar:

      The guitar was shipped in cardboard & wrapped in bubble wrap. Unfortunately it was left in the rain by the shippers & got a touch moist - drying it out over the past few days.

      No tremolo bar was included.

      Will need to dress the frets & adjust the neck - a bunch of buzz on high end & being strings.

      Looking forward to getting this to be a playable instrument
