"A really great guitar"
Sound: The sound overall is good. I really only use the bridge pickup with the tone wide open. I did think that with both pickups activated the sound was muddy and a little dull but like I said I dont really use both. But yes the sound over all is good. Feature: I would say the best. The guitar came with all the proper tools and they all fit where they are suppose to. I think the features are all good because it's desighned to kirks specs so I cant complain about what I think it should or shouldn't have, It is what it is suppose to be. Ease of Use: I would also say the best. As far as sound...well there are alot of factors that come into play, like amps and what not. The kh 202 is very playable and the manual is very clear on how to properly care for your guitar. Also it seems to be compatable with the rest of my gear so I give this section a 10. Quality: Well you get what you pay for if that helps at all. There are some flaws on my kh202, nothing major but that's to be expected with any guitar that comes off of an assembly line. They all can be fixed. I think if you take care of this guitar I'm shure it would hold up on the road, just regular maintenance and cleaning. I dont think anything would break untill something does actually break..lol. I am always leary of floating bridges that the studs might rip out of the body if you put too much ass on it, but thats with every guitar that has one not just the ltd. Value: The value rocks if your a starving musician like myself. I give it a 10. Manufacturer Support: I give it a 10, because I havent had to deal with them yet and honestly I don't think I will ever need to. Innocent untill proven guily..lol The Wow Factor: The look is awesome, you can't ever go wrong with and skull and crossbones. I was however a little dissapointed with the hardware. The advertisement said it was black hardware but in fact it came with nickel hardware, but no big deal it can be swapped. Overall: I expect I will be happy with this product for along time, This is my first ltd and I will probably never play another brand.

"It's worth every penny."
Sound: Incredeble sound, And using a Line 6 Spider II makes it even better. Feature: I got the guitar. That gotta count as a feature. :D And I really like the bridge too, It feels softer than any other floyd rose ever in some kind of way. I also like that it has one Volume for each pickup. Ease of Use: It's really easy to use. I still just love the sound of it. Quality: This guitar is so good. <3 I hope it will last for the rest of my life. Value: If you think of how it is to play and that it acually has ESP-EMG and Floyd Rose I could pay a grand for it. (If i could afford it since I'm just a kid) Manufacturer Support: Well. There has been no need to call the support. The Wow Factor: This guitar is like it has some kind of soul, just like a really good guitar should be. Overall: This is a guitar that you really would like to own. And it´s worth every penny. I am truly glad it was this cheap too.
Style of Music: Classic Rock and all kinds of metal.

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.
