I have a question... What is the difference between ESP and Ltd is one better than the other like gibson and epiphone? Please explain.
#2
ESP = made in Japan (incredible). LTD = made in Korea (awesome, 'specially considering the money) or made in Indonesia (crap).

What is the difference between ESP and LTD models? For example, the ESP Truckster seems so similar to the LTD Truckster, but the price is significantly different!
ESP guitars are built in our main factory and custom-shop located in Japan. These are completely built and assembled by highly skilled craftsmen using the best parts & wood selection. LTD guitars are produced in our factories outside of Japan (currently Korea or Indonesia), and are manufactured in larger quantities using an assembly-line production method.

Wrong. I have a Indonesian LTD MH-401QMNT and its solid! Plays great and sounds great.


LTD vs ESP

Well.... ESP is better however the higher end LTD's can stand there ground. the £600+ LTD's are often great guitars especially for that price range.

ESP guitars have better wood,attention to detail,and quality control than their LTD counterparts,they're just higher quality all around.That's not to say that LTD doesn't have nice guitars in their line up,they do,but they don't match up to the ESP version of the same model as far as quality and tone go IMO.
