"ESP LTD TE-401 Electric Guitar - Amazing tone and very nice to look at !!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve been wanting a T-Style LTD for quite some time now and I finally pull the trigger, and ohhhhh man, I really wish that I wouldn’t have taken so to get this bad boy!! I’ve played and owned pretty much every brand of guitar you can get, and for the price/quality combo of this guitar, it’s hands down one of the best. I love the shape, the feel and the playability of my TE-401!Satin finish is classy, EMGs are perfect for my style of play (Hardcore/Metal) plus they’re EMGs THEY SOUND AMAZING clean or filthy, the 25.5” scale gives it that little extra length in your neck for holding downtuned strings in tune without floppin on ya (I tune to drop A#) and it looks as good as it sounds; GORGEOUS. I feel like the only thing I would change to this guitar would be the rosewood fingerboard, I’d prefer it to be ebony but it’s purely an aesthetic thing for me. I have several other more expensive, high-end guitars in my repertoire but ever since I got this one, I haven’t even looked at any of my other guitars. Lol Seriously. If you’re debating whether to get this guitar or not, STOP THE DEBATE. Get this guitar. You will be happy you did. PLUS you’ll make your friends jealous! Mine are. Haha

"Great Tele with great PUPs!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Great Tele! No playability issues whatsoever. One reviewer stated that the volume pot was too close to the bridge PUP. Take a 7/16” o-ring, you can get them for .02 cents at a hardware store, and put it below the volume knob. You can adjust tension by how hard you puts down on the knob before tightening the set screw. This will resolve that issue. Many of the Kramer’s of the 80’s had the same position of the volume pot. Old school fix that works. Good day!

"Love it."

This guitar is absolutely immaculate. The guitar was ready to play right out of the box. By far my favorite guitar I've ever owned. I stand by ESP guitars and I can't get over how perfect this model is. The playability is outstanding, smooth, and satisfying. I'm looking forward to playing this beauty every single day.

"Great guitar, one suggestion though.."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The guitar overall is amazing.. plays great stays in turn, intonation is great, however.. and before I say what it is maybe i noticed due to the fact I have a music man Jp15 which is setup to be as efficient and ergonomic as possible.. The only negative thing I could say is the volume knob is WAY to close to the bridge and E string.. palm mute an A minor arpeggio and you’ll notice what I’m talking about. Any palm mutes what so ever in the E and B strings the volume knob gets in the way and will slowly turn down . If you try to mold your hand in such a way to palm mute those strings and still keep the volume up, the chick from the exorcist would be impressed by the way you have to shape your hand to get the palm mutes without turning the volume down. I have very average hands to. There not fat or big to freakish... so yea.

"This guitar kicks ass"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've had so many guitars, I sold a PRS SE Custom to get this guitar and was totally worth it. This guitar is clear and powerful. This guitar is equal to guitars over the 1000$ price tag but way better priced.

"Love it!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was lucky to purchase the out of box version. This guitar is awesome! I absolutely love it! All of the components are good quality that you would find on a 1000, except an Evertune or Floyd Rose, which I’m not a fan of, and there is no push pull option. The neck is rose wood, not ebony. Not a deal breaker. This guitar is worth every penny. It plays and sounds amazing!
