So has ESP fixed the quality issues with the signature series? I’ve been reading a lot of reviews that are several years old complaining about fret buzz and quality issues of the James hetfield signature. I’m stuck between this guitar and a schecter. The only thing holding me back is paying $1300 for a guitar I haven’t had my hands on or my ear to listen to in person. It would be a shame for a guitar company to not take constructive criticism from over 7 years ago and not fix them.

Hi Jeremy, With guitars there can be setup related issues that may appear for a given number of reasons. Things like fret buzz can happen overnight if you neck needs to be adjusted to do changes in temperature, humidity, etc. ESP stands behind the quality of its products and there are no ongoing quality issues specific to these models. If you have any issues with your specific ESP/LTD model please contact customerservice@espguitars.com and they will assist you.

Is this full thickness? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi, this is our regular EC thickness , so it is thinner (not "full thickness").

I put Sperzels on my Iron Cross LTD. You can can send a PM to Sperzel with info about the guitar and they will tell you the type of tuners you need. They really are the best locking tuners on the market.(IMO)
