    a few days ago i posted about my need for pickups for a certain ltd f-2e model guitar.
    I called ESP asking for a bit more info on the guitar and they sent me the stock pickups that came with the guitar FREE OF CHARGE! so +1 to esp customer service. they are emg-esp branded pickups. essentially just a set of HZ 4a with esps name on them. will still be upgraded but nice to be able to play this beauty now.
    this guitar was origionally set to be 849 msrp. sold for 599. i picked it up mine iwth no electronics for 100 bucks!!! USD. and as I understand they were only made in 2007 around 450 being sold all together.. and what a fantastic peice of wood for the price

    DAMN that looks sharp. I always liked the forest body shape, but the natural wood of that forest ( XD ) looks KILLER!

    I love those f'n Fs. Looks great in natural.
    Upgrades and it will rip. (81/60?, or are you getting passives?)

    Im leaning toward a set of bkp nailbombs at the moment.
    im not an active fan save for the mustaine livewires (absolutely fantastic pickups for death to blues)
    I am debating the 81/60x though. brushed would look sick in this. and ive heard nothing but good about teh x series. if they truly did fix the stale compressed tone from the old 81 I might go back to the dark side hah

    I'm not a big fan of the body shape, but the body itself looks phenomenal.

    that there is the sexiest LTD ive ever seen. I love the american F body style and really really love the laminated look they went with on that guitar. Congrats on scoring the OEM electronics.

    ESP/LTD sent you free pickups? That's freaking sweet! Thumbs up to them.

    Love F series guitars. My fave is probably their F-500 30th Anniversary Edition. That was beyond sexy.

    Keep us updated on any pickup changes :)
