Hello Everyone. In the comments Mr "Todd B. ESP" said that this guitar matches 50 and 100 Series guitars in terms of performance. I would like to just reconfirm this point with any official moderators here. There is very little information regarding this guitar over the net !!!!!

Carl N.

This model would be in line with our 100 series models.  This is also an exclusive instrument for the Chinese domestic market, for further information and pricing/availability please reach out to the Chinese ESP distributor.

MT-130 is gaining popularity in India. People are reviewing it very positively. I want to choose a guitar between MT-130 and F-10 of F-Series. But because of COVID lockdown, I can't go out and test by myself and there aren't many reviews available online on these two models. It would really help me if you can clarify these questions:

 

  1. What are the key highlights of these two models which differentiate them from each other except the pickup setup?
  2. Since LTD guitars always have great playability so I am sure both are going to be a gem to play with. But comparing these 2, which one is more inclined towards shredding and fast playing? Which one has a comparatively thinner and fast neck? In which higher frets are more accessible?
  3. I am not sure but I think F-10 was launched 10 years back and MT-130 2 years back. By a layman's logic, the newer will be better in terms of electronics and wood selection. How do MT-130 electronics compared to F-10? In the last 10 years was the F-10 model refreshed or is it still the same as the first model?

These models will be very similar in terms of specifications, the main differences are the body shapes, pickups, and bridge systems.  Either of these instrument could shred, as long as their player is able.
