Hello UG, im going to purchase this beautifully crafted guitar for mainly rhythm work, but I have some doubts about the hardware and pickups, does anyone here got this guitar? can you help me to improve the guitar if necessary?
Thanks a lot

I dont notice other dif. between 260 and 400 than Pickups and colour, and tuners, of course, plus the 260 is coil tappable

i believe the 400 has a better nut, tuners, and EMGs and maybe a gotoh bridge whereas the 260 has a plastic nut, ESP standard tuners, and those coil tappable hums. honestly, the stock pups are not bad at all. very versatile especially with the coil tap. i did replace them with seymour duncans but im saving them to put in another guitar. maybe i can find a cheap squier HH or get a jag body from warmoth.

theres only a few minor things about it. the high e doesnt totally sit in the nut slot.


and i think there were some tiny nicks in the fretboard when i bought it but they dont affect me at all. that high e nut thing doesnt affect the string at all either and its never totally popped out while playing. and i play pretty hard on this guitar sometimes. the neck is a little thinner than most other LTDs ive played including the other one i own. upper fret access is good, and im especially liking the headstock!

so i guess if you play more of a variety of clean stuff than just rock or metal, go with the 260, but if youre looking for hi gain, go with the 400. you'll enjoy it!

im looking for mastodon tone, and I dont want EMGs.... thats why I choose the 260, cos I can replace cheaper parts and still be more afordable than FX 400 ( I get it for just 150 EUROS)

the other guitar that boy will sell to me is a DK2M white... but im not sure about a FR guitar because I use at least 3 tunings.....but I dont know if it's far better than FX 260
