I also have an ESP LTD B-50. You need to switch the P-pickups around and the J-pickup will sound better. They are installed with the wrong pollarity pickup mounted closest to the bridge and it causes a hum. I play it at home for practice as I play a Curbow and an Ibanez SR800 Live through an Ampeg SVT400T and 2 4x10 Hartke cabs and one 1x10 Hartke cab I use a Digitech Proccesor live and a Korg at home. I have an endorsement from Ernie Ball so I use the Hybrid strings. The ESP sounds great and once set up plays really great and has a lot of head room. Most bang for the buck. I masked off the Head stock and sprayed some satin black on it to cover up that ugly LTD logo I'm left with a solid black headstock with an ESP truss rod cover.The headstock was gloss black and that didn't really go well with a satin black finished body.

: I've got ESP LTD B-50. For details see "BASSES". Mine needed truss rod and action height adjustment before it became "very well". You may also change stock pickups as I did because they are not excellent especially J-one.
: I've seen some other ESP's in local store - there is nothing else to compare to ESP in their price class. Closest competitors Ibanez'es are more expensive for same quality/setup.
: I think ESP mostly suitable for gothic and other metal styles. If you find fenders boring as do go for ESP!
