ESP LTD MH350NT Darkburst 2013
LTD MH350NT, darkburst over quilt maple, made in Indo 2013. This looks mean. It also sounds mean. It feels very friendly though! These Indo-made ESP guitars are nicely put together and designed for speed and violence, so you get the traditional shred-friendly combo of a mahogany body, EMG pickups, a set neck with a skinny profile and jumbo frets and some pointy bits. Tone-wise, you get what you came for: big thick juicy lows and an even, compressed midrange and treble; perfect for nasty riffs and chug-chugs. The quilt maple top adds a luxurious touch to the visuals; it's a nice departure from the obvious black and really looks great up close. The case is rock solid and no doubt cost a few clams new; a handy bonus. Now; where did I leave that black nail polish?
