sorry to burst your bubble but LTD's aren't quite ESP's... "real" ESP's, including ESP Japan, exceed even the most expensive Ibanez's around...
But the only LTD i've played was a '02 neck-through M-1000 with 81's... not bad for what it is (though my friend was having a hard time selling it). It's a very metal guitar, yes... didn't like the fact it has a painted neck for being a "shredder". Otherwise, not a bad guitar with good upper fret access despite being MIK :P
Personally, i'll stick to a TonePros bridge... i'm very weary about OFR's
That's just ignorant... Carcass rocked with Saber's and RG's back in the day, Morbid Angel brings out the 7-string [universe] on the heavier songs... and lets not forget Necrophagist
Alright dude, I know Ltds arent ESP, just minor details between the two that are different. Other then that, its the same thing. Honestly, im no longer interested in purchasing an ESP, i'd rather save a couple of hundred dollars! and purchace an Ltd Delux, I played an EC-1000 and compared to my EclipseII, sound wise i'd prefer the EC 1000, maybe its the rosewood fingerboard, The attack of ebony is too.."snappy"
And I dont believe im ignorant
im simply stating the truth! I can understand em all using and trying them out but since all didnt stay and continue playing with them...wonder what that means? I believe necrophagist uses a wide range of guitars from ESP and Dean, to i dont know why but bc Rich(not a fan of BC rich btw) only person that I think plays ibanez is Sami Raatikainen? its been awhile since I done my research and most likely thats only when they're playing live. Carcass used ibanez for a certain period of time yes but I believe bill steer used gibson for recording! I can understand morbid angel using the 7-stringer, Ibanez does have good sounding 7-stringers, they're arent that many good 7 stringers out there but then again, i dont prefer em...anywho(im not MucH of an ibanez fan as you can see like I said up above, way over hyped/rated guitars, Dont get me wrong tho its not like I hate them! they are nice guitars and nice sounding, I just prefer others)
thanks for ur input. hats off to you, You know ur stuff. unlike ALOT of other people that just speak out of there assses and have no idea what they're talking about.
Carcass= great grindcore! Morbid Angel= Great deathmetal! and Necrophagist= technical death metal, they're alright, Newer out of the three mentioned..but still been around since the mid-late 90's. Nice band dropping
Glad you liked the M-1000, most likely its going to be either the M or H...viper is alil neck heavy but still keeping my options open, I have 4 more days till i get paid! anything can happen...I would like to come across another charvel, '86 model 6 but doubt that'll happen :\
