Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (247 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "ESP LTD EX-50"
Sound: The sound is really good, played with chorus or even straight its very clean, but when you use distortion, it sounds heavy, even with the stock pickups Feature: Doesn't really have a whole lot, it would be nice if it had a floyd rose, but you don't need it. It has one volume and one tone and a 3 way toggle switch, and thats all you need. Ease of Use: Just plug it in and play it, its simple enough to use, the playability is great and the neck is the perfect size to move quickly along the frets. Quality: This thing is invinceible. One day I was playing it and the strap broke off, the guitar fell and landed on the concrete, the only thing that happened was a small chunk of paint fell off, i painted over it with black nail polish, and its not even noticeable, it still sounds and plays exactly the same. Value: The value for this guitar is amazing, for how well its build, the sound of the pickups, and the durabuility i could imagin paying well over $300 for the same guitar. I bought it in September for just $220, i found a gig bag for it, and even though i also have a Ibanez sa260m and a Epiphone Les Paul standard I still play it daily. Manufacturer Support: I've never needed the support The Wow Factor: Look at it, the shape is great, for being just black or silver (mines in black) the guitar has an amazing color, the shine is increadable, you really have to see it to appreciate it. Overall: This is an amazing guitar and will probably last as long as you want to use it, it could be improved by adding better pickups, but the ones in it are just fine.

Sound: depending on what type of cabinet and amp you have it will sound clean or a bit heavy.its is very responsive i recommend you play out the pickups before you switch them. I listen to metal and i got a long way to go before i can reach the big guys but it doesn't stop me from shredding and it does fit nicely with a deep heavy tone. I use a Line 6 POD HD and believe me when i say the distortion DOES NOT sound to bad with different settings like i said it all depends on what amp and cabinet your using. If it still sounds a bit too heavy for you then switching the pickups will be the best option but beware you will most likely spend $200+ or you can buy a POD HD and experiment for yourself like i did and you will be amazed. Feature: everything on the guitar is pretty useful, everything on the guitar was used especially the tuning nobs. The stock pickups are a good for starters depending on the setting used you will get different results. It is extremely well made and im happy it was made with toughness in mind. Ease of Use: IF you tune it correctly it will catch on fire, yes it sounds that good !. It gets along pretty easy with what i have so far i haven't had any problems. If your starting out learn your fingering i only have 4-5 weeks of experience little by little im getting the hang of it once you have that you will be able to move to the next thing your speed. Once you hear the tone your not gonna be able to stop playing at all it will make you come back for more. Quality: The product surpassed my expectations its made tough therefore its really reliable. For me it seems like it will last a really long time for the mechanicals only time will tell but its body is really tough. Value: You will get more than what you bargain for this for me is a great way to start. Manufacturer Support: i haven't dealt with them just yet. The Wow Factor: Pictures only describe so little wait till you have it on your hands you will never let it go. It looks really aggressive and has an aggressive tone to go with it. Overall: Over all its a wonderful guitar to have. i bought mines not to long ago, and i must say its one of the best decisions i have made so far. The black version looks mean but if you leave it in a dusty area be prepared to do a lot of cleaning.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
