ESP MH1000



the guitar is darker than it looks, and the black chrome hardware is sexy as hell... im buying this once i sell my other 2 backup guitars.

I guarantee you, this guitar will be the only guitar you will ever want to play. i have a less expensive esp ltd and i love it to death

whats your budget for the guitar?


£700max but i would rather pay £400

...what about bc rich assassin? Its made of Nato mahogany...is this an inferior wood?
#7
well i haven't had much play time with a guitar that uses nato but i've always associated it with low end acoustic guitars for some reason.

anyway there's michael kelly vex deluxe/NV (doesn't come with SD pups but it's not too difficult to swap)

Nnnnice. Never seen them before. It is pretty pricey here (nearly double the washburn) but i may be persuaded because its so pretty. Rockfield pups are great.

Just get the Washburn. It is one of the best guitars that you can get in the UK for under £700. That and the WI-66 Pro, which isn't Strat shaped.
it's all just coming back

^ agreed, the washburn is probably the best value in the UK. Those michael kellies would be worth a look, though (but i haven't tried them), as would Lag and the ibanez SZ series. maybe cort too. And godin.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I would recommend the ESP/LTD deluxe series over any other but they're expensive in UK as you said. With the limitation of your budget the Washburn would be my choice. Haggle little with the seller and you might get the price under 400 quids

Honestly, you can grab the Washburn for about £400 and for a guitar of it's quality, that is a steal. The pickups are great, and from the few X50 pro's I have played the factory setup is fine. The coil-tap is also a nice little feature
