Hosting a wonderful quilted maple top amongst some other great features and quality construction, the ESP LTD EC-100QM is a versatile instrument that would suit plenty of electric guitar players. The on-board dual humbuckers output fantastic quality sound with great clarity and definition through a range of tones.
There's no argument about it, guitars with quilted maple tops look and sound fantastic. In the case of this guitar, the high frequencies are enhanced and the whole frequency spectrum becomes increasingly well balanced and exciting. The body of the ESP LTD EC-100 QM is constructed from basswood, a popular choice of wood for this application. Basswood alone has some great tonal properties, including a well pronounced mid range that helps push your guitar to the front of the mix when playing with a band. The maple neck of this guitar plays extremely well, thanks to the thin U neck contour that ESP and their LTD range seem to prefer. The 24 XJ fret rosewood fingerboard is also a pleasure to play, making precise and technical playing much more enjoyable.
ESP have provided the hardware for this guitar and as usual the quality does not disappoint. Their tuners, bridge and tailpiece are all praised for solid construction and reliability, a vital feature when you’re playing gigs. With the ESP LTD EC100 QM in your hands you can be sure that your tuning will stay stable.
Pickups come in the way of two ESP LH-150 humbuckers which sound great and can easily handle a wide variety of tones. On a clean setting the sound is full, crisp and extremely satisfying but the ESP LTD EC100QM also loves being distorted. A range of tones are easily achievable, from biting crunch to crushing distortion and as such this guitar is surprisingly versatile.
