Congrats on your purchase. I'm sure you're just as pumped as me with my new LTD (DV8-R). I can't put it down. Good review.

I like a guitar that looks agressive on stage. I'll post pick of live performance as soon as possible, but currently we are preparing our 2nd album, so our gigs are only scheduled for March 2008. Then I will give more info.

Hope you find the review helpful. I only find it's a pitty that there are no signature series on this model, but the more rare it is, the more impact it causes.... You just can't have it all.

laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif Nice to find a brethen here.

The only place I found that sold ESP LTD was

http://www.lojamusica.com/ (coimbra)

I had to pay 20% in advance and then wait about a month. Currently I know no other stores that deal with ESP LTD in Portugal, and I've searched quite a bit...

If you want it cheaper, you can also order it online. For example, musik store in germany is reliable, and you pay on delivery, not by credit card in advance.

i was trying to decide between one of these and the MH-400NT that i ended up getting for a long time. They are really good looking guitars with good features.

hey man i just bought this guitar today and was trying it out for the first time and i noticed somethign about the sound. Maybe its just me or me being used to my schetcer c1 hellraiser but it sounded to dry and twangy, i was EXTREMELY displeased with the tone of this guitar. I'm thinkin with the installation of a graphite bridge and power strings and getting the gutar re-set along with action should help a little but over all i dont like the sound. I also bought a compression pedal that im going to return for the 10-band eq pedal in hopes that it will fix that irritating twang/dry/trebley mix it comes standard with.

Please tell me you know what im talking about and that im not just crazy or to picky=P

I dont want to return this thing because of its unique-ness and beauty but if it doesn't play to my standards it doesn't seem like i have a choice=(

What's up man.

This guitar has EMG 81's in both the bridge and neck positions. Those pickups are generally used for metal music...ie they have a tighter, more compressed sound to them but work very well with alot of distortion. Most ESP guitars that have EMG pickups come stock with an EMG 60 in the neck position for clean and bluesy tones. I suppose ESP figured that this guitar has such a 'metal' look to it that most people would want two 81s.

Luckily, EMG pickups are made to be easily switched out...you pretty much just pop out the old one and snap in the new one, without having to pull out the innards or do any soldering. For the tone you're looking for you might want to consider an 89 or 89r instead of a 60 (that's what I use personally) but they both cost about 100 bucks US.

EMG actually makes a bunch of pickups so you might wanna go to a local music store and see if you can't mess around with a few of them to find one you like. Since it's so easy to do I would recommend trying that first and foremost.

Good luck with that, hope all this helps man.
