Great Guitar, Bad Service

By Justin Wallace

from Dayton, Ohio

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

After reading countless reviews on how awesome this guitar is. I decided on buying one. I'm just getting back into playing after not even picking up a guitar in 7 years, so I didnt want to drop the money on a Jackson KV2 like I used to have. First off when I got it at Guitar Center it was unopened, which should have been a clue. All of my other guitars I've bought elsewhere have always been open because someone will take it out and make sure its set up correctly. I looked it over, Making sure nothing was dented or chipped or missing. It was in plenty of packaging and the guitar looked BEAUTIFUL. Finding a case was a hassle (It's the "ESP CVFF" FYI)but after finding it, it was cheaper than the ones in stock! The only problem came from not having the neck relief set. It was WAY too straight. I had to Back the truss rod off 1.5 turns because it was buzzing on the first 3 frets horribly..... all in all its a GREAT guitar with only minor finish issues and some slightly weak electronics, But for the money you cannot go wrong with it! Just make sure you know someone or you can set a guitar up (intonation, Neck relief, Pickup height).

Its just great and all about metal style!

By david Lizarraga

from calexico California

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar like a month ago, and all I can say is that its awesome, it has a great quality in all the features that comes with, the bridge, the SIT strings, the humbuckers sound heavy and nice!, its a perfect guitar from a good brand with a good price, this V shaped guitar its pure metal, and hard rock looking style, and the black finish is just beast!, now im looking to buy a guitar case that suits with it, because this guitar deserves it, its like 120cm of height, and 47cm of the base, I highly recommend this instrument to anybody out there who is looking for a great V-shaped guitar! long live to heavy metal! and ESP guitars!

Built for Thrash

By foat6six6

from California

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

Purchased my V-50 in West Hollywood the night before my band played the Whisky A Go-Go. Changed out the weak light guage strings the company had on for medium-heavy Dunlops and it was off to the races (I play in standard tuning I just prefer heavier strings). The guitar performed superbly as I had expected. I have been using a stock LTD EX-50 as my primary guitar for years and it has never let me down so I knew I wanted an LTD/ESP when I was shopping around for a V guitar (plus it's pretty much the striped down version of Dave Mustaine's ESP signature). These are perfect gigging guitars and they can handle the kind of abuse that only thrash metal can dish out and they're cheap enough to where you won't weep when it gets nicked, dinged or scratched.

Great Metal guitar

By Austin Mumpower

from Alabama

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for a little over a month now, and so far I love it! The neck is thin and fast, which makes it great for shredding and playing really fast leads. The neck isn't too heavy, and sustain is pretty good. The stock pick-ups sounds pretty good for stock, but I'll probably upgrade later on. This axe stays in tune fairly well, I only have to do slight adjustments when I tune up before a session, most of the time only to a few strings. When I got it, it came tuned to Drop D. I use this to play all types of metal, but mainly thrash, and it's great for beginners or intermediate players.

Good Guitar

By kyle burns

from Portland, OR

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

yeah the stock pickups are cheap and wired for the most displeasurable feedback. but thats me pushing this Metal Beauty to her limits. This guitar is not Designed or Electronically equipped for playing shows, Long band practices. It is Designed for the Beginner or the guy who wants a guitar to keep practice on or write on. It's made for at home jamming, not much else. Not only is feedback horridis in a band scenerio it lacks the fire power as well. I pulled out the Schecter C-1 after a while because my drummer complained he couldn't hear me. Your kid will love this or if your looking for a cheap practice guitar that you can hall around in the van to gigs and not be worried about being in the hole if it breaks. This is the guitar for you. It is a Fantastic Offardable guitar. but as with all Music Gear Fantastic Offardable doesn't always mean Ready to Gig Metal Monster. But i love this thing. I was going to get a Jackson. But i played this Strapped for cash at the moment. I won't play anything but ESP and they're V Series guitars. I love the Access to all the Frets coming from playing Schecter style and SG styled bodies. My Jaw literally Dropped. Overall if your like me and you always thought V's looked cool but weren't sure if they were for you, Get this guitar.
I Only Give the Features a 7 because it's a pretty Basic Set up. One Volume, One Tone.
But thats all you need. I love the neck Thin-U Really lets you Move around and is great for those big chords that require you to stretch. It feels smooth and of Course it's a V so you have Literally access to the entire fret board.
I Give Quality a 6. Because The pickups sound great in a practice amp at low volumes and such. Took this to band practice because it's currently my only guitar, Feedback like a mother horse. Of course it's not made for Stage or anything. so thats not really why i dinged it so low. My output Jack has been coming loose at an irritating and concerning continuation. I'm sure it's my fault. forgetting to unplug it at times. but it just shouldn't be doing that. I've had more cheap guitars that i'd care to mention. it's common among all of the cheap ones. but still...it's frustrating.
You are indeed paying for what you get.

AMAZING

By Derek

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is one of the greatest guitars I have ever played in my life. It was my first ESP LTD and it also made me a huge fan of ESP's guitars. This guitar came out of the box perfectly tuned. It was super easy to play and my fingers didn't hurt at all. As soon as I arrived home with it I plugged it into my Fender Frontman 10 amp and started playing it, it sounded amazing on clean and distorted. This guitar is perfect for metal with the stock pickups alone. The action is low and it's very easy to play. Before I realized it I was playing it for over an hour or two. I love this guitar, it made me sound better and it also had enough sustain for everything I played. Hammer-ons and pull-offs are very easy and fun to play on this. I highly recommend it to any level of player that likes metal like me.

Amazing

By Johan Erikson

from Fresno, CA

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

Overall this guitar blew me away. I was expecting something way different. The lows were amazing and highs were clear. The only problem I had was the 23 and 24 fret sounds did quite come out. For the price this guitar kicks the rest out the door.I Highly recommend it.

Well worth the $250!

By Tyler Ulmer

from Lancaster PA

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

If your into any sort of heavy music, the flying V is a staple. Actually getting a real Gibson or Epi is a strain on the wallet it's worth it! It is comfortable to play sitting down and is lightweight so it doesn't hang while standing. The neck plays like a dream and the stock ESP pickups get the job done, but you should consider upgrading them to get more crunch. The only thing that might be an issue is finding a case due to the radical body shape. 9 times out of 10 GC doesn't have a case in store for them so you might have to order one. In all, if your looking for a quality V to build off of, this is it.

Shocking!!!

By Matthew Elliott

from Canonsburg, PA

Comments about ESP LTD V-50 Electric Guitar:

I am a Les Paul kind of guy, been playing music for over 20 years. I have owned a lot of different brand of guitars. I play anything from Classic rock to hardcore metal. I wanted a cheap guitar I could thrash on and came across this guitar. What a freaking treat!!!!!! I could not believe the action this thing has. Pickups can be aggressive with nice squeals. Also has a solid base and gravity efficiency. So, if you are looking for a rock solid metal guitar. GET THIS ONE!!!!!!
