If you like guitars with less conventional body shapes and want to stand out from the crowd then the ESP LTD F-10 Electric Guitar is for you. This guitar certainly has an eye-catching design and the Gun Smoke Blue finish adds to this significantly. Two ESP humbuckers, including a single coil sized variation in the neck position, provide fabulous output and are surprisingly versatile. A great choice of woods are used to construct this guitar and make it as reliable as possible for an electric guitar at this price point.
Basswood is a terrific choice for guitar bodies because of the well emphasised mid range and it's fairly light weight. The ESP LTD F10 uses basswood for the body to great effect, providing this great, up-front tone. Beginners or guitarists picking up an electric for the first time will love the smooth maple neck and it's fast feel thanks to the slim U shape that ESP use on many of their guitars, even on the top-of-the-range models. A rosewood fingerboard is home to 24 XJ frets and a classic block inlay at the 12th fret, bearing the model name.
Chrome hardware looks great against the finish of this guitar and adds a professional edge to the ESP LTD F 10. All of the hardware is ESP standard, including the tuners and bridge, which allows for thru-body stringing. This is said to increase sustain and tonality, with the strings able to transfer more vibration directly to the guitars body.
Two humbuckers are present in the bridge and neck positions of the ESP LTD F-10. The bridge humbucker is an ESP LH-150, a versatile pickup used on many of their affordable models. You get great, thick tone from the LH-150, whether clean or overdriven, so you can easily play many styles of music convincingly. The neck position pickup is a single-coil sized humbucker also made by ESP, great for biting lead tones but just as good at smooth cleans. A 3-way toggle switch, master volume and master tone controls round off this guitar's features.
