I generally tend to avoid LTD's below the 400 series, but from what Ive heard, they are improving their low end models. But, within that price range, it might be your best bet. Im not well versed in other brands like Ibanez, but from what I hear, their low end models are bad.
Gear:
ESP/LTD EC1000 (w/ EMG 81 and 60)
ESP/LTD H500 (w/SD Custom 5 and 59)
Fender MIM Strat (basically my first. Never play it.)
Traynor YCV80 4x10
Peavey 6505 2x12 combo

Half Stacks are OVER-Rated

What do you guys think about this guitar? If you don't like it tell me a good guitar that I can use for metal that is 250 or lower.



I own it, and it hasn't let me down for metal.

Although now, all i play is classic rock, but it still works lol.

Amp matters most rather than the guitar

theres a "through the fire and flames" solo guitar cover on youtube, of which he uses a ESP f-50, (yes i know its a gay song etc), so it can handle shredding and metal etc, heres a link

Hey I just noticed your signature, you already own an ec-50, don't bother with the f-50. You are basically buying the exact same guitar, with the same pickups but different shape. I would suggest on getting a new amp as well as most of your tone comes from your amp.

Still not the best idea though. TS you should relaly save up just a big more, say about 250 more? Then you can get a kickass LTD
