Way better than fender for metal than a fender will ever be! The quality of a ESP gives really good rifts and a nice and clean fret board so your fingers don't have to stretch so far plus they have an amazing tone to it with both distortion and non distortion
High power, fast playing, easy to pick up. I love the playing quality and simple beauty of the body!
ESP Is simply the best brand you could ever use, from it's awesome quality ESP too their good quality/price relation with LTD. You can use an LTD distressed series for playing classic rock, for blues also, and the Xtone series make their work too, and from their LTD standard and deluxe series to their ESP standard and signature series for the best and widest range of metal you could ever imagine, with them you can from Black Sabbath or Ozzy Osbourne, to Metallica and Children of Bodom. (Kirk Hammett, James Hetfield, Alexi Laiho, Henkka, Michael Paget, Gus G, Tom Araya, Jeff Hanneman and almost any japanese guitar and bass player that is considered good [Seriously, without exaggerations or lying] endorses ESP guitars and basses).
There is no best or better in anything, and that includes guitars. It is all about personal preference. I am a guitar technician and in my 24 years of working and playing guitars all I can say for sure - ESP Made in Japan ONLY! (this does NOT include LTD models made in Korea or Indonesia) guitars are the highest quality guitars in the world PERIOD. Another brand that I would recommend with high quality is PRS. Any other brand high-end guitars are overpriced. Most overpriced junk is Gibson. You pay all that money for the logo and the fact is even in the high-end Custom Shop Gibson more that half of their guitars have serious issues. Gibson is for snobs.
ESP is the best guitar brand on the market. No other brand will ever beet it! Buy you have to love those gibsons. Especiially the les puals.
I have an ESP LTD B 10 AND IT ONLY COST 133 £. You have to love ESP because they are the best guitar company ever. They will make you a custom guitar and its not going to pay so much as Gibson or Fender. If you have 200£ and you want the best instrument that you can get thats a LTD. There is so many known bodys like SG but its name is Viper. Les Pauls name is Eclipse. Vote for the best! ESP 4 EVER
The best guitar your money could get! ( In any price range ) even their Ltds are top quality but not top priced.
very well made +1
all guitars come with xj frets +1
very low action and very good guitar for metal / rock
has their own unique designs
The feel of ESP is awesome. They make some Really good guitars.. And they are the best guitars for Metal. NO wonder why Metallica, children of bodom etc uses. And their custom shop is the Best.. Just check out esp shinigami
The LTD EC-1000 is as good if not better than any other guitar I have played. Including les Paul. They have top notch craftsmanship and they come set up tp play. I would recommend to anyone. Thanks.
I have four ESP / ltd guitars! I own 21 guitars and my esps by far are my favorite. There quality for there price is simpily unbeatable bottom line! They have great sustain and excellent construction and very comfortable shapes. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
I have an ESP LTD F404 bass guitar (the one with inlay up the neck) and though I have played on so so many basses worth anywhere up to $20,000 I have yet to find one that plays better than mine.
I've tried almost all of the guitar brands I could find, ESP has the best quality, sound, and hardware around, LTD's are very nice as well, but ESP's are worth every penny.
The best quality you can get. It may not have the styles of other brands, but it has the best sound of any guitar on the market today. Absolute favorite. Doesn't matter the skill of the player as much of the sound, and esp is ready to ROCK
Clearly the best brand, it's the only company to make custom guitar in such a beatiful way, in Asia are as famous as Gibson in Europe and America, just see the website to fall in love with one of them
You can really tell, that the manufacturer's put their all into the making of the guitars. They're definitely one of the best brands out there.
the most versatile brand with high end quality and model variety. ESP can perform in every style existing in this world and in any other.
Packs a high amount of punch. Works great in any type of music, especially metal. No other brand makes guitars as awesome as this one can.
#16? I own a Gibson Les Paul and a Gibson Explorer and quality compared, my ESP Eclipse is just as solid guitar as both of my Gibsons. Maybe LTD's aren't rated as well, but ESPs are great quality instruments!
The best brand for metal, the guitars sound great, play great and are really well built. They also have much more diversified guitar shapes than the other top-brands.
Playing a gibson and then switching over to a ESP makes the hardest solos easy. love this axe
I think ESP comes out on top. The pickups never die the guitar it self looks amazing and the fact that you can get a good quality guitar for cheap is unbelievable.
ESP are the awesomeness, look at who uses them, hammet and hetfield, wayne static, travis miguel, George Lynch, ect
Clean designs, Very cheap for superior hardware, beautiful tones and beautiful bodies, what more to ask, especially under the £500 marks, ESP = best
ESP deserves to be number 1 because they make good quality guitars. I have 2 ESP's and they're better than my Jacksons. The are the best guitars ever. 11
The best guitars in this age! Of course classics like Gibson & Fender will be forever, with their classic tune.
