Got my first guitar today. I went down to the local Guitar Shop, and picked up a ESP LTD M-100FM. I got it brand new for $169. Online I only seem to find them around $300. How did i get it so cheap? Also is this a good starting guitar?
It may have been a previous years model

If you like it then yes it is a good starter guitar
