I love both of these guitars, but I cant choose which one to save for.

Anyone have experience with them? Like ownership wise, I've played and love both of them, and which one is better in the long run?

Thanks, this is just something I would like some help with.

Well the Xiphos has 7 strings so its the clear winner.

yes but the xiphos is also better all around except the neck isnt satin finished. it would be perfect if it was.

btw the ninja has some warpage problems from my exp. like it takes less humidity or temp change to warp.

You should get the Xiphos shearly on the fact that X is the first letter in its name. Now thats just metal.

A real ESP Ninja or LTD?


I would really prefer the ESP, because I know there's a quality difference, but I've played the ESP, not the LTD.

Ninja is discontinued no? Amott is sponsered by ESP anymore and it's not on their website.

+Infinity.

7>6. Its a mathmatical fact.

That's something to consider if it's going to take you a while to get the money for the guitar. Without them being made anymore it's only going to get harder to find one.

I heard that he left ESP, but surely they wouldnt discontinue the line for that? would they?

I'm going to be severely depressed if they stop selling them.

Get the ninja, the ltd version is superb and the whole neck warping problem is a bunch of bs. The Ltd neck is pretty fast and its finished the esp neck is unfinished.
