The TL-6Z NAT from ESP is a great entry level/first upgrade electro accoustic guitar. The 200 series, as a whole offers you a slight step up from the basic entry level models without hurting your wallet.
The LTD Range brings you everything thats great about ESP at a more affordable price so everyone can enjoy the great sound of a quality guitar.
ESP Guitars are great for any style of music but where they really excel is Hard Rock and Metal. When you pick up an ESP theres a reassuring heft to them, hot heavy as such, just solid. They can take a serious beating and are perfect for touring and regular gigging. This model is ideal for adding some accoustic finger picking of gentle strumming to your set.
There are bass, mid, and treble tone controls so you can dial in your ideal sound. A notch filter helps eliminate the possibility of feedback while playing live, a brilliance control helps you cut through the mix, and the phase control helps solve phase problems when recording the Presys+ and a microphone at the same time. And to make sure you're always ready to play your best, there's a built-in tuner on the Fishman Presys+ pickup system.
Here's what ESP have to say about this guitar
