ESP LTD M100FM Flame Maple Electric Guitar

ESP LTD M100FM Flame Maple Electric GuitarMaple top. Agathis body.

With its “reverse” headstock and dual ESP LH humbuckers, the M100 delivers a broad tone with searing highs. ESP carefully designs and builds all of their instruments with painstaking selection of materials, components and innovative designs so that each model has its own unique personality. The M100 features an Agathis body with a flamed Maple top, a Maple neck with a Rosewood fretboard and 24 extra jumbo frets. It also provides a Floyd Rose licensed locking tremolo and all black hardware.

Feature:
The guitar came with a Floyd Rose and a few Allen wrenches for the tremolo unit. The unit is good, but the locking nut at the top of the neck pinches the low E string, sharpening it and causing a bit of tuning instability. Also, the saddle for the D string is beginning to give out. It won’t hold the D very tightly anymore, and just a slight use of the tremolo makes it go out of tune. The tremolo was set under the bridge. The pickups were great it came with a cables and also some stuff for the Floyd rose bridge.

Quality:
Quality is outstanding for the price. It’s pretty solidly built. Except for the frets. They jut out of the fret board just enough so that it scratches your hand as you move up the frets. Also, it’s jutted out enough the problem with the high e getting stuck under one of the frets from time to time. It is very durable and beautiful.

Sound:
It has a classic dual humbucker esp tone. It can shred or jam whichever you prefer. When connected to a good amp, especially a tube one, you can get a rich flavor of sounds. The Floyd rose has complex mechanic, tremolo is also a nice feature on it, but once you get around all the bridge balancing and patience you can get a real rich sound for little money.

(TIP: To get your Floyd rose sounding good your going to have to open the back panel and adjust the springs (after tuning)to balance the bridge so that it is level or, parallel to the body so all you will see is two perfectly level parallel lines. But be sure to maintain that on the first fret area when you do a power cord you don’t hear any shaking (adjusted by the two screws that hold the Floyd rose on).)

Ease of Use:
It’s fairly easy to use. The neck is nice and thin, but not so too thin. Good for shredding and fast playing. Everything is fairly self-explanatory. This particular guitar was definitely user friendly, like they are so many guitars with thousands of buttons and knobs. Very playable, fun to use and pretty easy to handle.  Maybe you want a footswitch to improve the sound only.

Value:
Absolutely the best value. Great guitar for a beginner. This guitar is worth double than what it’s asking price is. it is a really cheap guitar for its quality. Check Latest Price.

Desirability:
It’s black, and in the right light, looks a little purple-ish because of the wood under the finis. It was an ESP and it had a Floyd Rose unit.

Maple neck would brighter her up a bit. The whole freaking guitar is dark. But it sure does play sweet with proper pickups.

Overall:
Her ears are pricked up and her tail is a wagging, tongue is a hanging out too. This guitar is worth putting more money into it, better pickups. It is a great guitar. Seem to have a better grasp of the Floyd Rose tremolo unit.

The F100FM is a true Flame Maple Top guitar with dual ESP humbuckers, and a Tune-o-matic bridge that strings thru the body for incredible tone.

Feature:
Active electronics with 24 frets you can get high for crazy solos the guitar looks like a million dollars you really liked the see thru paint job. The only thing slightly disappointing about this guitar would be that it only has one tone and one volume control other than that love it especially its thin-u neck.

This is a one and a million guitar. This guitar has a great sound for the money and you  really like the fact that the neck is natural w/o finish. The sounds are monstrous through a good amp. Excellent sound is clean, and also a clean sound with the distortion going, very crisp. The stock pickups are actually amazing for the price your paying for this guitar. The distortion is Metal simply put wonderful for playing “Megadeth” “Mettalica” “Soilwork” down to “Led Zeppelin”

Ease of Use:
This has to be the easiest guitar you’ve ever played out of companies such as “Jackson” “Epiphone” “Ibanez” and “Fender” the neck has amazing playability and feels as if your fingers simply glide along the string’s.
