I used to have a LTD MH-1000FR. I traded it for a Horizon NT-II and I can't tell how I am so happy with it. There is a big difference between those guitars. first of all craftmanship of ESP is top notch and it is lighter than LTD. Neck is really really fast probably the best and fastest neck you may ever see. But LTD was a good guitar too.
I mean LTD is a very good guitar but an ESP would be the ultimate choice.
