Gearank Recommendation

The ESP LTD MH-50 appeared on our recommended list for Solidbody Electric Guitars Under $500 from November 2016 until May 2018.


ESP is a Japanese guitar maker that has successfully moved into the international scene, thanks to the quality of their shred-friendly guitars, as well as their big name endorsers that include metal bands like Slayer, Megadeath, Metallica and more.

Up to this day, they continue to produce quality guitars aimed at rock and metal guitarists, including the lightweight LTD MH-50, which does not stray too far from the familiar shred guitar formula while keeping the price accessible.

It combines smooth playability with double humbuckers, and tops it all off with a Floyd Rose Special bridge.

If you're looking for a budget friendly rock guitar with a versatile tremolo system, then get the ESP LTD MH-50 if you can get your hands on one.

I found a ESP LTD MH-50 on

I found a ESP LTD MH-50 on the Marketplace on Facebook for $200.00 and am going to pick it up tomorrow. It is red, no blemishes, in mint condition and I couldn't be more excited to shred on this bad boy.
