About the LFR the thing is that just about any LFR will hold tune pretty well with a proper setup. If you want a floating trem go for it. With the other two you would want to decide which do you want more, the awsome shape of the EX or the EC's ability to sit on a regular guitar stand. Also I dont know what site you are getting your prices from but musiciansfriend has all of those cheaper than what you are showing.

There is also this 50 series that you can get with a LFR or with a string through body. http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/ESP-LTD-F50-with-Floyd-Rose-Electric-Guitar?sku=476288

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

imho I'd try get the next series up, may be more expensive but the lower models are a bit... errr

I mean don't get me wrong they're still good, but the ones higher are just all around better for their money, and you will be able to sell them easier on later

if you get the MH-50 don't expect it to stay in tune when using the whammy at all.

Don't all lower end ESPs have floyd rose specials now?


Yeah, all LTD Standards have the FR Special, which is a pretty decent trem. My M-200FM has it, and it's good, as long as you take care of it and set it up properly.

That said, I'd still recommend either the EC or the EX, unless you really want a FR, then by all means go for the MH.
