That's a pretty good deal, with the money you save, you can get some better pickups.

Thats a pretty good metal guitar, I mean its made of metal so its pretty metal.


Guitars aren't "metal", the amps you play them through can make them sound "metal". God damn.

You may want to look into this one (inquiry about what the dent/scratches are). But yeah, if you like it, get it. Metal is mostly defined by what you plug the guitar into. The woods on that, as well as the string-thrus, should give you great tone. If you want a tiny bit more oomph or bolder character in your tone AFTER buying the amp you want, then look into a replacement hot bridge pickup.

It's last year's model (it usually sells for $320 there). You've just got to ask them about what's knocked about it...they may send pictures. They're a good company, so I don't think it'll be seriously damaged during delivery.

$300 is a rly good price for that guitar... depends how used it is I think though, hehe :P

anyways... i have that guitar, and I think it is rly good! I would recommend getting that guitar!! Bends are rly easy... the stock pickups aren't too bad, although like most stock pickups in this kind of price range... they could be better :P sounds great still tho through my roland cube 30x. neck is rly nice and comfy imo, and it isn't too big or heavy

it looks pretty sexy too (i have the black one). mine's been staying in tune quite well, and plays great! i've had it for about 2 months now... no dents and scratches yes, hehe

well, its pretty much in mint cond. aside from the bottom string that needs to be set lower, or maybe it was the strings on the guitar because that string fel really loose off the guitar compared to the others..

but year it looks sick, especially the set neck in white

Are you intentionally trying to sabotage him, do you know nothing about guitars, or is this a joke? NEVER get a sub-400 LTD. They sound no better than Squiers and cost more.

There are features than make a guitar metal oriented. Fast, flat necks and high-output pickups for example.

NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER get a guitar because it looks better, that SZ is 10 times better than that esp. THe SZ plays better, made of MUCH better wood, its a set neck, and is a great guitar for the price


go for it dude.
