Had my eye on this one for a few years. It was too expensive when it came out in 2013. I found a slightly used one at GC over the weekend. It may say LTD on the headstock but this is pure ESP. Real FR trem. Absolutely awesome materials and fit and finish. Made in the same Japanese factory that the ESPs are made. Same folks making them. Weird branding on ESPs part and it tanked on them. They have since changed the branding. Took it apart, cleaned it up, new strings and a setup. Wonderful guitar.
