This guitar is a much higher spec than many of the similarly priced competitors. It has coil splitting, a set neck, very stable tuning, the LTD own pick-ups are very powerful and clear. The binding seems to be done to a very high quality and is completely around the guitar, neck and headstock. The action, intonation and set-up seemed to be almost spot-on straight out of the box (minor adjustment of the T.O.M bridge on the treble side needed to drop the high e very slightly). The guitar sounds incredible for a sub £500 instrument - will happily gig with this instrument. Looks wise, the gloss black, gold hardware and cream/white binding looks absolutely stunning. I have owned similarly priced guitars by other reputable makes and this absolutely outshines all others I have owned - in terms of looks, playability and sound. I am converted to ESP/LTD because of this guitar and personally it would now take a LOT to make me consider other makes in the future!
