Excellent guitar for the money


These LTD's just keep getting better every year and this is no exception. The fit and finish is on par with guitars costing twice their price and the hardshell case is a great addition. I really like the weight of this guitar and their is no neck dive. Pickups are subjective and I'm not an EMG fan but the "HetSet" actually sounds really good.
