Re: ESP LTD M-100FM
They are made from crap plywood, by the most unskilled workers in the factory. Crap necks, crap attention to detail, crap crap crap.
I have seen a few "nice" LTDs, true enough, but they are the exception not the rule, and you can spend a grand on a high end LTD and it still be crap. I was so happy when one of my clients a Schecter endorsement after 5 years with LTD. I was tired of going over and sending back crap guitars trying to get him a good one to play. And this is someone they PAY to play them, so you think they would be sending the best they had to offer (and on paper, they were the best they had to offer, but even the EC-1000s they kept sending were pure junk, it took about 6 until we got one that I could do something with, and even then it was on par with a good Epiphone at half the cost). But the first batch of Schecters we got in were all spot on, thats 3 for 3 so far from them. I just can't say enough bad stuff about those LTDs.
And a good ESP ( as in a real custom one) will make a Jem seem affordable! lol
