"Your Metal Messiah"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
If you can play this thing can deliver. I've covered perfect renditions of Iron Maiden and a buddy of mine covered Angel of Death on this thing so well I thought Kerry King and Hanneman were in my house. Sounded way better than a friend's Gibson. With a nice amp and effects the EX50 can stand up to top-of-the-line guitars.
Volume and tone knobs as well as standard distorted, 80s thrash- electric, and this cool muffled-sounding pickups. No whammy bar sadly (which is why I docked a mere point) but for the price and knowing this is an LTD it's no wonder. Still not necessary though, this thing's great.
It's an ESP-meaning they still take their guitars seriously even though this is in their LTD product line. This guitar can take a beating and give it back. I really love this thing.
I honestly can't answer because I never needed help-the guitar was just too awesome for breaking.
$230 for a guitar this great? Definitely.
The Wow Factor:
It screams bada$$. For those of you who are tired of Stratocastor look-a-likes, the EX50 is too cool for even random groupies. Rock on.
Until I can cover Slayer solos or something to that equivalent there's no reason to get another guitar. With some nice effects this axe will slaughter the masses with its metal militia.
