Features:
This guitar is an LTD version of the ESP KH-3. The KH-3 is a Les Paul style guitar with a Floyd Rose and 24 frets. The LTD version is neck thru body and has EMG HZ's instead of EMG 81's. it is satin black and a great guitar, i got it for a good price cause the music store was going out of business
Playability:
The actions on this guitar are great, the pick ups are superb, and it is neck and neck with my jackson i have, it did how ever have one flaw, it had a small short in the volume knob but i fixed it
Sound Quality:
I plat it thru a peavey amp with a tec 8 pedal board and it gets the job done
Durability:
This guitar is very reliable, and it seem to be a well built guitar

I looked at a couple other esp's like the mh-300 or the kh-502 and the v350. i also looked at jackson soloists but i wanted the shorter gibson scale length and i wanted a les paul body that had a floyd and 24 frets. this is no doubt a good choice.

Features:
This gutiar is made in korea. The guitar is neck throu body the neck is made of maple and the body is made of alder. it has 24 extra jumbo frets. It has two emg hz's each with one volume and one tone, it also has a 3 way switch. and of course it is black, mirror black. the body is a les paul and has a floyd rose and deluxe ltd tuners
Playability:
The action on this guitar when i got it couldn't have been better and the neck is extremely comfortable to play. it has a les paul rounded neck profile.
Sound Quality:
Well the only bad thing i can hear about this guitar is that the pickups blow. they are weak. the have plenty of tone but no output. this guitar is meant for metal not anything else. i am going to put in an emg 81 for sure maybe another 81 in the neck. it is quite.
Durability:
Um this thing is a tank. you could drop it and nothing would happen to it really. all the hardware seems good on it, but this guitar feels solid for sure.
