This is another ESP M-II, this one a bolt on with a maple neck. it's amazing!!!!...but nowhere near as nice as my M-II UC. It has an alder body like the UC, but seymour duncans instead of EMG's, which is the only reason i marked it lower. it sounds less metal than the M-II UC and other M-II's. This is still an excellent f***'n guitar!!!! The tremelo is amazing, it too comes with an Original Floyd Rose, black hardware, gotoh tuners i believe, i'd have to go check. ESP really does stand above all competitors when it comes to quality, which is why their price tag is high for the standard and custom series. you get what you pay for, but the surprising thing is, even the LTD series guitars are substiantially better than the competitors entry/low/midrange guitars!!!! EMG pickups in a $400-500 dollar guitar is a steal IMO. sure some other companies have it, but an LTD will last longer. ESP's rock and roll, it's that simple. Heil, now go f***'n buy on lol take it easy guys, but not too easy stay grim, and stay f***'n metal!
