Pushead replied to the forum post is my LTD EC1000 a fake?

Most of my Eclipses are ESP, but I do have an LTD Baritone.  From the small pictures, it looks suspect to me.  I've never seen one with that control cover, I'm used to them looking like this:   The......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Help getting more sustain of my ESP MX-250

Also if you're using a noise suppression pedal or multi-effect with a noise suppressor, you might need a different setting for the MX than the Gibson.  The MX might just have a lower volume output than the Gibson. ......MORE »

Well, your problem could come from a bunch of places.  What's causing the lack of sustain?  Is the string fretting out or buzzing?  Is the wiring not making great contact, causing the signal to cut in and......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post SW Iron Cross Inquiry

They're certainly expensive, but when you compare the price to an ESP Original or other Custom Shop level ESP guitars, it's right in line.  I wouldn't say there's markup because of James' name, though it's probably the......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post NGD part deux..again not ESP

I had an R0 for a while.  It has a much smaller neck, but I wouldn't qualify it thin by modern standards.  Certainly not the same size as the "60's neck" Gibson USA guitars.  I'd say it's only slightly bigger......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Pawn shop discovery

Good price for that guitar.  The 400 level LTDs are usually a lot of guitar for the price.  Desirable?  I think the EX shape is hit or miss for people, not a lot of middle ground.  If you were looking to......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post Any thoughts on Boss NS-2 Noise supressor?

I prefer the ISP Decimator. I find it to be quieter and less impact on the tone.  It's typically the only pedal in my setup, so someone who uses a bunch of pedals may have a different experience. I own and have used......MORE »
