Hi guys, so after many hours of looking, i have narrowed down my choice to 2 guitars, the esp ltd m1000e and the Ltd kh 602, now the kh 602 has an emg 60 in neck and an 81 in Bridge and the m1000e has dual 81s, they are around the same price and I mainly play metallica and associated music. So which guitar do you think is better suited to my playing. Thanks
600 series sig LTDs are the same as the 1000 series LTDs. If it's just out of these two just pick the one that you like the best.
I would go with the 60 in the neck.
ltdguy27 I heard something about the Floyd roses being different? I think the 602 has a legitimate Floyd? And the 1000 a version of?
Both guitars have a 1000 series floyd. The 1000 series floyd is however made in Korea rather than Germany like the OFR. I've owned many guitars with both trems and the 1000 definitely holds up well to the OFRs.
ltdguy27 So basically the only difference is the inlays and the neck pickup but im not sure whether to go with the 60 or 81
Pretty much. I wouldn't worry too much about pickups since they can always be switched out. While i prefer the 60 in the neck, the 81 isn't a terrible neck pickup as some people would think.
